Sketches from early-1900s celeb photos, 5-11-2018 by AdamWarren Sketches from early-1900s celeb photos, 5-11-2018 by AdamWarren
Did something a lil' different for today's set of life drawings, by digging up a bunch of vintage photos of celebrities ranging from the 1910s through the '30s, which featured some truly beautiful B&W values. The resemblances wound up spotty at best, but I didn't really care, as I was more interested in the shading challenges the images presented. Look up s'more of these vintage pics yourself, and give 'em a try, won't you?

You're a cartoonist AND a fine traditional artist.  And a fine cartoonist, too, I might add.

1910-50s Hollywood photos are a great source for B&W studies. Two books you might want to check out are "Hollywood Glamour Portraits (1926-1949)", and "Film-Star Portraits Of The Fifties." Each has over a 100 of full page B&W portraits, which you can get through: www.doverpublishing.com

Another great source is photographer Bunny Yeager's books "Bunny Yeager's Darkroom", "Bunny Yeager's Beautiful Backsides."
