Skin Demo

We have Learning Lunches at *atomhawk every so often. It's essentially a show and tell where one of our Artists will paint a demonstration of a chosen subject, while the rest of us sit around stuffing our faces watching the big screen. I've never considered myself gifted when it comes to any kind of public speaking, even with the people I work with ;)... but practice makes perfect.

They're good fun and it was my turn this week! So I painted a little skin demo. The face on the left is around 40 minutes, and the face on the right is about 1.5 hours. I thought this might be fun to share.

Every aspect of this face is captivating. Did you have a live model?

its amazing how much polish you can put on a piece, how do you do freckles? do you use a special brush? what blend mode are those freckles?

For the face on the right, does 1.5 hours include 40 minutes for the face on the left, or was it starting over from scratch?

The learning lunch idea sounds really fantastic. If you don't mind me asking, did/do you find it easier or more difficult to know you're talkin/demoing for experienced artists? I imagine you can take some knowledge as being understood and not need to explain every aspect of the way you work while you're doing it, but pinpoint more specific, complex issues as you encounter them. Anyways, beautiful work and thanks for sharing!

When it's your turn to demonstrate during lunchtime, when do you get to eat? And to take a break?
Either way, it's a really nice image and I would have loved to see it unfold.
cool stuff looks a bit like the tutorial of dan luvisi on imagine fx
