I want to rig a video camera on a pulley system. instal lights on each wall to simulate what kind of lighting i want. Using the video footage of myself (hd) no less. I can basically get any pose i want by pausing the film. esp for things like karate kicks.
What you guys think? do you guys think this is a good idea? I feel like im going out of my way to cheat and just copy my poses but.. im quite tired of trying to draw poses from my head.. it takes way too much time.
well i found out famous comic artist use ref. like crazy.. so I guess i will too. Imagine a super reference room. with all colors of light. and a suspension system. with lots of generic props. I wonder does anyone have something like this in their home.
what if I do all this and the drawing comes out great.. but if i get a job and they ask me draw.. and im helpless without my reference set up.. or not as good as the drawings im showing... that would suck.
does anyone have some kind of reference set up you would like to share?
