Spent two more hours on my little skeleton today. I’m having a hard time with the hip because it’s just slightly tilted away from my viewing point. All of this is done on ebony/hb pencils – 6B.
We start new projects on Wednesday so I’m hoping to get at least this sketch done by then (along with two others that I haven’t even started yet!).
My professor, Anne, also went over some interesting artists that I would love to share with you.
The strange thing about this artist is that I don’t know anything about him. His “Info” section on his website is blank. I love how surreal all of his work is, especially with his use of Asian-influenced style. More than anything, I love that he uses real images of nature and embeds fantasy into them. Absolutely wonderful.
Step 1: Pick a picture you want to vectorcize! Play with it in photoshop if you want. Remember, this image starts out as a raster.
Step 2: Open Adobe Illustrator and make a blank document the size of your choosing.
Step 3: Open File, select “Place,” and choose your raster image.
Step 4: Once placed, click the arrow to the right of live trace. You have many different options for how you want to vectorcize your image!
Step 5: Once you are content with your selection, click expand to alter the image. Et voila! C’est complete! (In this example, I used Color 6).
Cute, huh? 🙂
I am spending time looking at different kinds of calendars to determine what would be best for my valentine. There is so much to choose from!
