Overview
Whether trying a new technique, getting in some practice time, or working on a finished piece, this figure study enables artists to create their choice of model, pose, and view whenever and wherever they d like. The latest addition to the series will help artists become proficient in incorporating chiaroscuro or light and dark lightinga technique used by the great masters to produce drama and depth in their paintingsto define the human form. Additional expressions and body details highlighting challenging areas such as the face, hands, and feet in even greater detail augment the disc. Varieties of body typesranging from thin to plus-sizeand ethnicities are included. Poses have been carefully chosen to illustrate important effects such as foreshortening and perspective changes. With this guide, artists can achieve longer drawing sessions than they could when drawing from a model directly. While viewing from many angles and attheir own pace is often impossible for artists in a studio session, it becomes as easy as putting in the disc and opening any photo. A judicious amount of photo retouching is donenot to make the models more glamorous or plastic but to remove distractions that detract from the models essence. The PC/Mac-compatible DVD-ROM features more than 2,500 high-resolution JPEG photos providing a number of viewing optionson a computer screen, printed out, projected for a group, or via a high-definition television. Each angle of every pose may also be enlarged, enabling artists to zoom in on specific body parts to achieve a higher level of detail."
