sketch in light by Loopydave sketch in light by Loopydave
Something a little different... Portrait study for a painting.
An idea I've been wanting to play around with for a while… washing a figure out with light, emerging from the brightness but leaving detail lost in the white.
Its tough having such gorgeous friends to help you out with your ideas! :D (the very beautiful and very talented :iconoilin:)
Pencil on paper.

For some reason I really enjoy the extra white space. What a gorgeous portrait.

I need to play around with white space more often I reckon. Cheers Lon!

beautiful... At first I wanted to post, "Damn, yo..." and hope that your inner urban kid would understand the thoughts behiind the statement. Thoughts like, "Wow, Dave's just switched it up and left a whole new pack of realists in the dust." and "Do you think Dave knows he killed it? He made those arms SING!!!"... stuff like that...

I live in a small country town making my inner urban kid is a bit rusty - so I appreciate the explanation of 'Damn, yo..' :D
Appreciate the compliments/flattery! Now, who do I make the cheque out to? ;)
