After working for a time in a more traditional style, and through a period in which he experimented with Symboism, French painter Henri-Jean Guillaume Martin eventually settled on a style that is generally considered Divisionism, an offshoot of French Impressionism associated with Pointillism. Like Pointillism, Divisionism was concerned, even more than Impressionism, with the placement of pure dabs of color (or dots, in the case of Pointillism) in arrangements that would optically mix in the viewer’s eye, as opposed to intermediate colors being mixed on the palette. Divisionism was based on color theory popular at the time and was concerned with the scientific basis of human color vision, however inaccurate some of the prevailing assumptions may have been. In Martin’s hands, however, the results were richly poetic, lushly colored and fascinatingly textural canvases, most of which depict the small village of La Bastide du Vert, where Martin eventually settled.

Certainly using a scalpel in portraiture seems strange, nevertheless it's purpose is simple and it is somewhat like the role of an eraser. The only difference is, a scalpel is necessary to create a bright glare, such as on the eyes, teeth, earrings, rings, etc., where an eraser would not manage to create a bright enough highlight. Using a scalpel is not advisable unless you are using thick watercolor paper. When you can not use a scalpel at all, you can use regular "Correction Fluid". to create highlights in your portrait.

sparth - depot - custom shapes i haven't posted for ages. and i guess it would be wise to open a new sketchbook on CA, where i'll be able to gather some of the latest stuff, as well as having a new spot to 2011.the initial reason why i want to open that new sketchbook is because of several techniques i've found out and started using within photoshop, and that some of you could benefit in various ways. if i can use that sketchbook as a repository for all the findings, it will be all good, and i'll be able to come back to it easily.we've been talking a lot with thom scholes about it, and we're still experimenting and pushing this thing forward. also, kekai, as well as other artists and friends, have started messing with the technique. it's super exciting seeing stuff pop up that way.

S: Well, to sum it up, I have been an artist since I was five. I lived abroad for many years as a kid, went back to France at the end of the eighties until 2003 when we decided to leave for Canada. In 2005, we had to solve a dilemma: leave Montréal where people are great, but where the weather was so hard to endure. We finally settled down in Dallas and I have been living here since.

Learning In The Flesh: Why Disney Sends Its Animators To Life Drawing Classes Since 1932, Disney has been the only entertainment studio to continue an unbroken tradition of offering free life drawing classes for its artists within its studios. The idea is that understanding and capturing the anatomy and sense of motion from a live model improves animated drawings and gestures. In the ensuing decades—while other animation and visual effects studios in the U.S. and Europe intermittently followed suit, pending budgets—Disney’s classes have not only continued unabated, but expanded beyond features to its TV animation, theme park, consumer products, and straight-to-DVD divisions. Continuing that tradition today are master teachers Karl Gnass, Mark MacDonnell, and Bob Kato.
