Live model quick sketches.
Last week I went to Body Worlds exhibition in Rome, with my sketchbook. It was fun to get a chance to sketch anatomy from the real world. I never really drew a skull with a brain exposed till now.
I figured I can have some fun painting it. Here’s a quick light scheme I had in mind, kind of an electric energy glow in the dark.
Here’s the original sketch and another sketch of an old man’s skeleton
I traveled to Italy for a week in order to catch one of my favorite bands, Incubus, live in Milano… and well, it was a good excuse to go to Italy!
My brother had an idea to make a time lapse while I’m sketching the city hall building in the main square of Siena. This was about half an hour, a frame every 5 seconds.
I added a tune from Incubus’s latest album to go along with the spirit of the trip.
It’s called “Originals”, from the album “If not now, when?”
I was messing around with a different style this week, so to get it started I grabbed a mirror and made this quick self portrait. What I like about it is that most of the shapes are pretty random, it’s not like trying to get everything right. So this gives the image some energy and flow. I like the thought that if I do this again it would never lead to the same result. You can feel the moment.
