Sketching for Illustration Update

Charcoal drawings are wrapped in shrink wrap and very glossy and difficult to shoot.

Adjusted the master copy to get it accurate in values but the blacks look too dark here.

What I have here is some work from several weeks ago and also the recently completed master copy. I still have to photograph the work done before the master copy (5-object still live, shirt paintings, etc.) I am showing all homework because I've worked too slow in class to have anything worth showing. (This week, however, we are going to have lots of in-class time to work!)

Drawing at the Getty

Went to the Getty recently with some school buddies. First time going there to draw. I found a photo that I saw online once but didn't know who's it was. Turns out it was a photographer named Paul Outerbridge and the photo was from 1938! I have to read more about him and his career, the few highlights I've gleaned so far are very interesting. He was an illustrator early on, and later was a photographer for Vogue in Paris. Interesting...
