Lately I have been drawing anatomical studies and painting small portraits of fruit. These were completed a few weeks ago so the seasons changed. I kind of like that actually.

Lately I have been creating more work in a decidedly scientific fashion. I always loved the drawings of the "Old Masters" with an espcial appreciation for anatomy. But straight up scientific rendering can get boring. So I figured it was time to start the (almost) scientific art I wanted to see. I am doing this not so much for learning or teaching, but because its (hopefully) accurate with a (hopfully) nice design. And since I love chiaroscuro, I incorporated that too.

I figured I would mix it up a little bit this post. I've been working digitally lately but I always think traditional skills are best.
First up, some sketches of Antarctic explorers. I was trying to get reference for the clothing worn by early 1900's explorers, and was surprized to see so many one-zies. I thought they would look funny with bear ears.
And then there were nudes. These were sketched from a book of old photography from Paris.
And then a digital sketch. A still life from DeviantArt I reenvisioned from a photo. Nothing serious, but a great way to practice. I think this took about an hour.

Oil on Canvas 9x12
Akane got me new boots for Christmas and I had paint the old and the new again. I did this one other time and I think it's a great way to show the passage of time. Now I also think this could make a nice advertisement illustration. I wonder what "Doc Martens" would think.
