Bridgman Tonal Studies

|

I noticed this blog after idling on Concept Art about different methods of studying Bridgman.

The method http://deadoftheday.blogspot.com/2009/07/perspiration-anatomy.html

Do a tonal study of Bridgman. I grabbed my pencil while on the bus and did a few I’ll post the originals so you can compare them to mine. It was a bit harder…I went with mostly sketches so I’d have to figure out the tones myself. Some of it I had to figure out the inner anatomy. Some fail, but still learning.

Originals:

Granted my attempts, there are five. I just don’t feel like digging up the fifth one. Suffice to say it’s a knee/leg study. I really need a new moleskin, I was reduced to using my water damaged one…

Oh and I have a couple from a year or two ago so you can see the difference when I first attempted to learn from him.

This was was a set of studies I did in a Moleskine Journal. That’s why the yellowish look of the paper. I’d like to get a moleskine sketchbook sometime as I have some painting techniques I could try out in that brand of book.

Some of the studies are really warped because the journal had water spilled on it, I switched to another book shortly afterward.  Some of the studies were life drawing studies too, or first attempts at applying Bridgman’s knowledge.
