So we worked on rendering today in Sustained Figure. We were learning the different stages to accomplish a finished look. And for two whole hours, I drew nothing but crap.
Okay, not crap, but not good either.
These were the best.
Then, luckily, he had us only work on the shoulder, because, the way the lighting was set up, it had the only true highlight --- that way, we could work with ALL five of our values.
And for some reason, I had a breakthrough --- the rest of the figure looks all wonky and disproportional --- but look at that shoulder!
