New York Times Ad Model (2002), MSPaintbrush drawing
ah, that's really great!!!!
really nice. like those Chuck Close paper things...
Really cool drawing. Side question - the low -fi digital representations they use for head shots in the WSJournal - they obviously aren't free-hand - but wondering how they are done. Do they just scan a photo or take the digital image and use some software that generates their standard pixillated look? Any idea what the software might be? Thanks.
In response to Paul, "this week I've been fantasizing about painting on the computer" ... I would heartily reccommend Synthetik Studio Artist 3.0 (Mac only, sorry) and Corel Painter (I think it's up to version 10)... both let you mix & squish etc.... Actually, Studio Artist is about the coolest art program ever, because everything about it's Paint Synthesizer is editable and animatable.
Thanks, all. Answer to SHM's side question: I haven't looked closely at those Journal drawings in a while, but in the past they were done by hand, by an artist, which is one reason the likenesses weren't very good. The technique is called pointillism: every little dot is put in by hand. There are programs that do that automatically, but something tells me the Journal is still using people, maybe with a computer assist to speed up the dot-entering process.
