I've just started working with William Whitaker this summer. His studio is amazing and he's a super guy, really nice and very talented. I'm also working along side Emily G. Some of you may know her from her posts here at concept art and if you don't you should. Her stuff is worth seeing.
My first project was a sight size drawing of a torso.
This is the final.
The pencil work is light compared to the refrence. I wanted to avoid the graphite getting a shine in the dark areas.
Now that it's on screen I can see that the upper center shadow needs a bit more work. I'll deal with that later.
And this is the final when the contrast is turned up by the computer.
Here's Emily and me working
And here's me starting my second project.
