hi, /I have to start new references)
I made from this photo https://img1.wsimg.com/isteam/ip/e44...:555,m,cg:true
a small attempt to practice (better understand) with loomis
perhaps in one of the first comments I said here
that I was trying to learn loomis as a possible way to do
portraits to have a skeleton from which to start if it worked, as a way to take measures that I tried to learn along with the other methods that you told me, comparatives etc.
I don't know if actually trying to learn better loomis, to learn portrait, for pencil drawing in which idea is however to look for similarity
if maybe using it for faster designs I will not try to learn a possibly realistic shading.
I did this by looking at a PC image
doubt and if you do something like this to try to improve the design more perhaps by measuring at this point as much as possible to adjust or try to copy, limestone on a good sheet? digital? etc?
or to insist above all or only on measures, comparative or to try to learn
SightSize or similar.
so in any case always print the photos, probably that makes sense indeed ...
here the doubt and if to add to my design the printing (if a4 I have no space problem otherwise I have to try to change something) or 2 years ago I had seen something but I could not understand how to position the sheet in that way,
long ago I saw a video trailer where artist was perhaps about a meter from the model, he drew his face in a glass or plexigas and then superimposed it on the face of the reference that matched,.
however this was indicated, it also happened to draw looking at a photo, but I don't know how the photo was put, and anyway I wouldn't remember it, so not like, if it's side by side but sideways, I think (I don't know if it can be done even closer).
I did not understand position and distance, if it can be closer.
I don't know If this is a better way to train an eye too (if it is something that is actually taught, that can be learned or improved),
I don't say to make a portrait but like the skeleton of a bottle, cube.
This method is nice that you could do then both by drawing an object and a photo. So exercise both things
Maybe if photos are small it's difficult but if you can vary distance.
I don't know whether to try it (tests with felt-tip pen and plexigas, this I had from 2 frames that I had taken reading something to draw right side I think, then I had not used it a lot but it seemed to me a nice idea) this thing (feeling and allenni eyes making so many attempts, tests that train you both for photos and for drawing from life, if you prepare everything) or in the end it is enough to combine photos with the sheet (perhaps something more logical, possibly with quality prints and I'm wrong to use a screen and not photo and if the values do not go well in the press, for shading I go back to the monitor .. I had abandoned print because my prints were afraid of the dark more than me.)
happy halloween, a warm greeting, thank you and excuse the chat
