HMC: Very nice rendering in those drawings.

Tonight I have a study to show. Based on a bargue plate- commonly used in academic art institutions. Nearly 10 hours were spent on this one, and next time I should probably slow down! While it does look pretty, there are many flaws from the original.

I love it! The smooth gradation is fantastic. What kind of pencils used? I love anything resembling renaissance-ish "old masters' works. Thanks for the education on Charles Bargue, I had to look him up. Wikipedia says Van Gogh once copied the entire barque plate set, for study. You have 196 more to go if you want to catch up to ol' Vincent. Post more if you do 'em will ya.

I used very hard pencils for this. My darkest was an HB, with a 2B accent here or there, then an h, 2h and 6h. I do plan to get the book, and was completely unaware that vincent did some as well! I'll have to look them up.

Holy geez man! That's so cool looking I can't believe how smooth it is. I pasted it over the original for fun and you pretty much nailed it, Maybe a little bit of areas are shaded a bit to dark like the elbow and middle 2 knuckles.
Very impressive!

You give me too much credit Jakten, I only wish that were the case. I somehow lost some length in the forearm, and mangled the fingers. the elbow itself isn't too far off when you put them on top of each other, but then the hand doesn't line up:

A portrait of a friend done here at college. Not without it's flaws but practice is practice:

Btw as shameless promotion, this painting, entitled " Sarah" and another of mine " self portrait in white" are in a competion for chroma art supplies. If you'd like, you can go and rate what you think about them. ( 5 stars please ;D)

Nice studies Ryumaru.  I have never attempted a Bargue study myself.  With all the loose and vigorous brush marks in the oil painting around the figure I wish there were more of that in the figure itself.  A feathered edge here or there.  Have you been looking through Richard Schmid's book?

Haha yes I indeed have. Not recently but I've had it for a while. The problem with having all that fun in the figure is that It's hard for me to do that because I'm not a completely competent painter. I get away with what I can when I paint, but when it comes to a face I don't really have the option of doing anything other than simple painting. Not to mention It's small in size ( 8x10) so there is literally little room for error. Thank you for the comment :]
