10-22-2007, 01:09 AM
Here're the initial sketches of the participants........
And here's the beginning of the study, which will be for a 24" x 36" rendering... [the figure is outlined, but not shaded yet, so hard to see......]
Will post close-ups when get the figure shaded with the rest.....
10-22-2007, 11:07 AM
Another very interesting start Robert:thumbsup: Will you be doing this one in colour?
10-22-2007, 12:11 PM
haven't decided - the original idea was to do this in color pencil, but because of how well the figure for the Rite project went, am thinking pen/ink, black and white..... however, might just go for color inks on this one - think will make it more interesting..... if so, doubt be wall-to-wall, but partials, with blank background.....
10-22-2007, 07:31 PM
Got some work done on it today.....:clap:
and some close-ups. of course..:lol: :thumbsup:
10-22-2007, 10:17 PM
Looking really good Robert. :clap: :thumbsup:
10-24-2007, 02:46 PM
The study has been transfered, and am on the bluing......:clap:
With it raining here all day, might get the figure all blued in, and be on the top of the wall......:thumbsup:
[well - nothing else to do, is there, huh....:evil::lol::lol::lol: :rolleyes: ]
10-24-2007, 03:08 PM
Lol... you lucky man ... I have a huge list of things to do when it is raining (as well as a big list to do when it's dry:D )
I really like your blue beginings Robert.

Oh - there's always cleaning the apartment - but I live alone, so big deal...:evil::lol::lol::lol:
10-24-2007, 07:48 PM

Further results of a rainy day.......:lol::lol::clap:

Looking good Robert!! Looking forward to seeing the finished product.
There are times when I wish I did live alone!!!
I am a married mum of two children, that's why I stipple!! It is my only escape!!!
10-25-2007, 11:39 PM
Got the monkey off my back....:lol::lol::lol:
so now just connect them together with the wall - and can begin the coloring....:clap: :clap: :clap:
10-26-2007, 04:13 AM
Nice job Robert. You can already see his character emerging:thumbsup:
10-27-2007, 10:47 AM
And the blue undercoat is done......:clap:
Note the original study had wall texture behind the monkey's tail, and this doesn't - mostly because thought it implied a wall via the tail shadow.... should I leave it like that, or add the wall texture as in the study?
Meanwhile, on to coloring the figure.....:thumbsup:
10-27-2007, 12:38 PM
Mmmmmm ... not sure Robert. I sort of liked the wall texture in the first post and I sort of like this one without. I guess that only 1% of people will even see the difference. It's what you think that matters:thumbsup:
10-27-2007, 03:42 PM
Will probably decide once all other is done - see how the balance be.... and even then, may only do small part to the right of tail, since actually like that effect there....
10-27-2007, 07:00 PM
Because of greater variety in colors, am using bottled inks for the coloring, and crow quill nib for stippling.....:thumbsup:
First layering is bottled flesh color - partially because is easier to work from this 'medium' level and go from there to light or dark as desired, at least in regards to caucasians..... following is antelope brown in the shade areas...
Note just the flesh is applied to the breast area, while the head and neck has the addition of the antelope brown....
The next layering is using flame orange, running this in not just the shaded areas but the edge between the two, and those light shade areas not previously indicated, thus modeling the figure more.... at the moment have also used it on the lips....
10-27-2007, 10:59 PM
Further close-up on that.........:clap:
And more flesh rendered............
10-28-2007, 12:08 AM
And - I have done with it for the day... :clap: the flesh color is all laid down....:thumbsup:
now to go over the shade parts and match out to the head and neck....:thumbsup: and get the shading of the fruit too.....:evil: :lol: :rolleyes:
[and do the hair, of course :eek::rolleyes:]
10-28-2007, 12:13 AM
can't wait to see this when it is finished, even tho' I like it at this stage, just captures your attention
10-28-2007, 02:53 PM
This is an interesting compostion. I am glad to see a curvacious woman instead of a stick think model type.
10-28-2007, 04:34 PM
And here is the woman colored.........:thumbsup:
And some poor close-ups [this cam just doesn't do great, but does hint...:eek::lol:] The hair is colored using burnt umber....
10-28-2007, 10:42 PM
And here's the monkey........:)
10-30-2007, 05:43 AM
hmmm Robert, very interesting and lovely color, think you should push the darks a bit like you have done on the monkeys tail. nice stuff
10-30-2007, 07:33 PM
And here's the - for now - finished rendering.......:clap: :clap: :clap:
10-31-2007, 05:08 AM
Great stuff Robert ... it really does look 3D:clap: :clap:
10-31-2007, 09:46 AM
am finding it fun playing with the colored inks from the bottle.... more variety than in the micron pens, and can see possibilities of really getting a realism that's almost photographic yet of imaginary worlds.... think "The Birthing Tree" would have been better if rendered that way.... ah well - live and learn.... to me, tho, is more the case of seeing it as imitating the printing process than trying to duplicate the old masters grisalle complementary in the undercoating.... [which is why never tried doing the green underpainting for flesh - too scarey:eek:]:lol:
still - love the black/white rendering, so will be doing "Rite of Spring" that way... :thumbsup:
