The Champ (2004) - Pencil, Graphite Powder

Found this on an old hard drive. I always find it interesting to look at what I was doing 10 years ago (2004). I was kind of obsessed with muscles and rendering, but I still like it overall. Not sure what I was thinking with the “screwed-in concrete fist”. I’ll find more old pieces and post them in the near future.

BTW, We’ll be at SDCC until Sunday. Come say hi!

Tuesday Tips - FOLDS

More on folds today. I will eventually cover all types of folds but today is about simple folds on everyday clothes (t-shirt, jeans). The key is to know what to expect and then applying what you know to simplify what you see in front of you (when life drawing). A lot of the folds dynamics on shirts and jeans come from the “memory” of the fabric itself. Denim is thick and is likely to keep some form of wrinkles or folds around certain areas (knees). A lot of zig-zag patterns around the knee is very likely. When pushed down on the feet, the denim fabric will bunch up and combine with the zig-zag pattern. Shirts and t-shirts will react to the twist and pull of the arms and torso. Identify where the pull (or tension) is coming from and work from it. I tend to draw the seams because they clearly express the volumes underneath.

Boyhood (Richard Linklater, 2014)

Go see this movie while it’s playing in theater. A truly unique experience to see actors aging on-screen at different stages of their lives. Also a touching and genuine look at growing up and the choices we all have to make.
