After spending months studying art and being inspired by my fellow students, i decided to animate the whole class’ figure studies into a series of animations. I found it really interesting looking at the different approaches we all took to our colour studies, yet how well they fit together as a whole.
Wait a second…so…let me get this straight. You put a model in the middle of some students, and had them do color studies of the model. Then you stitched all of the different paintings into moving GIFs showing the model from each of the students different perspective.
So…basically the same technique used to do this but with
But with paintings.
Norman Rockwell reference photos alongside finished works
This is how using reference works
Working smarter, not harder.
I wish there was a post like this but for Leyendecker.
I wish there was a book like my Rockwell book for Leyendecker.
I have a Rockwell book where each painting is a full page. The Leyendecker book they made, which spends most of it’s time bashing rockwell, most of the paintings are tiny. :/
I love both artist’s work, they’re a big influence on my own work.
Yeah I have the Leyendecker book. How I got into him was a odd trail, I saw a painting of his in person at The Statue of Liberty and it stuck with me his paint strokes and just style. Then I came across who he was online later and ate it all up. Now he has to be my biggest influence. There is a museum of his actually near you, I believe a hour out of San Fransisco I really want to go to just to see more of his work in person.

I traveled for one month around California and I swear I saw the most breathtaking landscapes. It was a great experience to explore new places, to try the local food and to meet new people. I got lucky enough to grab a few stills and I’m still working on a video.
"while sitting on brighton beach (UK) back in 2005 with my new girlfriend, verity, i thought the view of our feet pointing out to sea would make a nice photo. ever since then we’ve continued to document our travels in this way, resulting in a collection of over 100 photos. in 2011 the series took a new twist with the arrival of a third set of feet – our daughter matilda. you can already see her little feet getting bigger and bigger." - text and photos by tom robinson
