I hope this works. This is one of the videos I created for the latest ImagineFX DVD issue 30. It accompanies the article I did on drawing hands holding objects. Hope this works...
This and other videos will be up on lemen-aid.com soon, a great place to go on the net for art instruction. Enjoy the videos and they will be more instructional sooner than later. These were all a test and experiment. Your comments will also help me organize the videos and get the right information to you. And yes, I used the Mattson 2 for the sounds...these videos were filmed on my own, I could not keep an eye on the monitor and draw under the time I had. I also filmed this with an Elph so I had no chance of checking out what was being filmed. More on the filming later when I draw up the diagram so it makes more sense. This is called dedication, or stupidity...:) Here is a diagram of the shoot to give you an idea how this first round went...invent as you go.:)
Hello, first post in a while and I wanted to make it a descent one to start with again.
Here is the photo that I am working with.
This is a photo of Peter Hewitt. I do not currently know who shot this photo but I will find out soon.
So, what I want to do is take this photo and find a spot somewhere else next to impossible to take this image.
I am going to put the camera under the board or behind it as if this was a clear tunnel.
First thing to do is learn the original pose so we can proceed forward with more working confidence. So study the image and do a drawing from its perspective, in this case I am using figure construction methods to help me determine the volume presented before me.
Here is the drawing that I did a study of to start the process.
Note that I have analyzed the volumes cylindrically and I have also found the camera angle from which the photo was taken.
Next we will break down the image into what would be termed an orthographic view. WHY? A good practice to know …
