Webisode: One (Part One), Blocking in the Portrait

video

My first Webisode is finally here! It's taken a while since my preview earlier this year to get setup for this series. We moved recently and I had to settle into a new studio. Now that I'm up and running, I expect to do these on a fairly regular basis. It was a lot of fun and a learning experience to produce this. Please pass this on to anyone who might be interested. Thanks!

  1. Hey Scott,

    Great webisode 1, Ive really been looking forward to seeing these. Cant wait to see part two, and many more.

    Thanks for the advise in your previous post. I tried the raw umber, ivory black and just a small amount of white, and it worked great.

    Best, Jason

  2. Wonderful Scott. Really enjoyed it. I'm used to using a pencil to size up a house portrait, but haven't really used it for human portraits. Wonderful work! Looking forward to seeing more.

    Could you, would you say something to help me understand how to draw slowly? I'm having a hell of a time getting it!

  7. I genuinely enjoyed this video and have come to an important conclusion: there are several talented artists out there with the first name "Scott," but you're undoubtedly the best.

  8. Thank you everyone! It's very gratifying to hear all of your responses. Jason, I'm glad that bit of info was useful to you. Martha, let me think about your question and I will try to give you some ideas next time I see you at GCA...or perhaps I'll say something about it in the next webisode. S.Bartner, that's incredibly kind and generous of you to say, thank you! Everyone else, please know how encouraged I am by your comments--Thanks!

  9. nice! i like the artist's eye perspective with the pencil over the model (lovely model by the way, i hope you are paying her enough)...the only thing that would improve this piece would be if in the opening sequence you were wearing a bathrobe and smoking a pipe, preferably the kind that dispenses bubbles...other than that, awesome production and beautiful drawing--would like to see pics of the new studio, too! :)

  13. Thanks Carol, anonymous, Doug and Will, much appreciated!
    Oh, and Carol, I haven't been paying this model (who is lovely, I agree) but I do help her with her bills and try to help support her child...
    (for those who don't know, the model is my wonderfully supportive wife, Kristen)
