oil on canvas
I bought another Virtual Pose book with CD Rom and it's truly amazing. I still can't get over placing the mouse on the figure and dragging to spin the pose 180 degrees. Ah, technology. I'm repeating myself but I'm still fascinated.
I'm really pressed for time so I did another nude for my daily today. The curve of the back, the way the hips move even though she's stationary, it's just nature at its best. I wanted to try expressing movement with line, a technique I learned at FIT. I'm more than a little rusty, but I'll warm up over time. So much can be said with the right line weight. If done correctly, a shadow can be indicated by just curving or strengthening the weight of the line. More to come.
