Synthesis of Noncontemporary Influences – That Old Stuff… Is it Relevant? – Part 1

Previously we looked at simple PhotoShop Colouring…
The images below provide sample line work in lieu of the student having their own line work (this should be remedied before final samples are handed in) – Previous Samples.

x St Bernard 5

The Character Sheet above has two examples of Photoshop colouring, The far left shows the result of simple single layer colouring using the “Multiply” layer tool to avoid messy “white halos” around “Magic Wand” selected areas of a drawing (see your notes taken in the lecture/discussion).

Whilst for the black and white “values” portrait study at the centre-top of the sheet above I used the values from a self portrait by Rembrandt (>THIS<) to help me understand how to model the face with light… You might also wish to look up the term “Chiaroscuro“.

The following images can be downloaded and opened in Photoshop for practice in the session. Beyond the session it would be worthwhile you creating your own images.

  7. […] And with regard to decisions when adding tone or colour to human faces, or other imagery, it is always worth your time to look to the past.
