Nothing funny this weekend: all very serious stuff with Fine Art in the next upcoming series of posts. Recently did a handful of demos working with a model, including these gestures made using graphite on newsprint. Using the awful iPhone camera under horrible lighting conditions actually made for some interesting results, in keeping with the previous post re: digital tweaking/resurrection.
Experimenting with a few "Distort" Photoshop filters: "plastic wrap" and "glass," and a couple Textures: "craquelure" and "lighting effect" + "blur." Never ceases to amaze me the range of potential effects that can enhance an illustration even with the barest ghost of an image.
