2010 » May Writing in her blog on the Telegraph in an article titled Why preserve Van Gogh’s palette?, Lucy Davies points to some of the considerations for artists learning from the palettes of the masters, both in choice and arrangement of colors. Those fascinated by the techniques of the great painters would benefit from understanding their palettes. Even when learning from contemporary artists, the palette plays a greater part than is often acknowledged. I always find instructional videos exasperating when they ignore color mixing and act as though the brush is always magically loaded with the the proper color, with little thought or work on the part of the artist. This seems to apply to a great majority of the instructional videos one encounters on the web, though those that are professionally prepared often address color mixing more thoroughly (as in the instructional videos of Richard Schmid).
Videos Straight-away I was reminded of Jake Fried, but only in materials/process. It’s clear that Emanuele is also intuitively fleshing out the movement frame-by-frame as he goes but his work is unique in that there’s no figurative elements to recognize; only abstract geometry and form that, when quilted together, comes across as both familiar and foreign. I’m reminded of the notebooks I used to fill with random scribbles while bored out of my mind in high school: I’d start with a stray line or a random shape and then try to make sense of it with the remaining paper, as if the choatic mess left by my pen was what I had intended to create from the beginning. It was a way to pass the time and entertain myself instead of blankly staring at the clock, fantasizing about the bell that would eventually set me free. Thanks for passing this one along, Sam Lillard! P.S.
Crossing the uncanny valley WIP latest update : Quote: __________________________________________________ ______________________ So, this is gonna be sort of a making-of'ish, tutorial'ish thread on how to create an accurate face scan for anybody, basically all you need is a digital camera and internet connection. So for me the plan was to create an one-to-one digital copy of a real life protagonist (from the neck up) for a DIY facial mocap later on. To the scanning part, i came across a free service provided by autodesk called Project PhotoFly (im sure many of you heard of it and tried it). The quality of output this service provides is imho mindblowing.

Tadahiro Uesugi The strange thing about Tadahiro Uesugi is the amount of people who have never heard of him… His work (and there is lots and lots of it!) has appeared in high profile magazines like Vogue and Cosmopolitan, on book covers, CD’s and what not. But still, whenever I mention the name to some one, they often get a puzzled look on their face. Usually the frown disappears the minute they see the work itself… Uesugi is a master of mood and light. cake or death | m • o • y • a Hi. I’ve been trying some new things for a small project. Starting tomorrow, the Arludik Gallery is hosting a new show titled Merveilleux! for which I did a small ink piece. The show explores classic tales and legends, features a lot of awesome people and will ultimately be published in book form by CFSL Ink. Artist Selfies: Everybody's Doing It I review a lot of portfolios. I tried to guesstimate and I probably reviewed about 750 portfolios in person alone last year, and that's leaving out all the samples I get mailed or websites I review. A lot of those reviews are from very green artists and students. When I'm reviewing a portfolio of someone who isn't ready to work for me yet, I still like to give them some feedback, some things to work on in the future. And one of the most frequent things I recommend is to start using better photo reference. The internet is a great resource, but often I can tell when someone used separate images for say, a figure's face, then a different one for hands, and another one for clothing.
Art and Reference point The other day I came across this awesome program by accident (I don’t even remember what I was actually searching for, but on the several times I’ve looked for a program like this I’ve had no luck). It’s cool enough that I wanted to share it. It’s called DesignDoll (website here) and it’s a program that lets you shape and pose a human figure pretty much however you want.There’s a trial version with no expiration date that can be downloaded for free, as well as the “pro license” version priced at $79. I’ve only had the free version for two days so far, so I’m not an expert and I haven’t figured out all of the features yet, but I’ve got the basics down.
