Alfa Romeo 8C

Hello all, lately I’ve been working on a short animation project and preparing a new batch of cars. With all of that going on, I’ve moved on from this work at the moment, so I thought I’d get it out there, formatted to 1080 wallpaper size:

This new batch of cars intends to be somewhat of an historical tour through the Alfa Romeo Production timeline, starting somewhere around the 24

Bookshelf: Facial Expressions

February 20th, 2010 by Sean No comments »

Containing a variety of human faces and various other resources, Facial Expressions: A Visual Reference for Artists by Mark Simon has been of regular (if not at times daily) use.  This book is nothing but faces, sixteen black and white images per page with fairly good light contrast. Each picture is about 2″ x 2.5″ and maintains subtle details like veins and wrinkles, though detailed skin texture is lost in the image. Models vary in ethnicity and body type, and are arranged starting  with young twenty-somethings, progressing chronologically to models in their eighties. Also of value are facial muscular references, phonemes, transitional expressions and models with props (hats and glasses).

Facial Expressions, by Mark Simon

Most often, this reference has proven useful in my ultimately becoming more familiar with the nuances and gesture of the human face through speed sketching. I’ll keep this book with me in the chance that I’ll have a spare moment to sketch a few quick renders.

I look forward to future use of this book in sculpting out facial features in ZBrush, or as phoneme reference in animating speech.

A great deal at about $15 on Amazon. If you have the means, I’d highly recommend picking one up. . .

Stephen

Couple of different things here, this painting is on a much larger canvas than the other portraits (33″x33″), and I stretched the canvas myself.
