I didn't recognize him but the painting is pretty awesome. Rotoscoping?
Hey! Thanks. Nah, just side-by-side copying.I do cover a tracing technique that I use as warm up here, but I don't really ever rotoscope:http://artchallengeawesome.blogspot.com/2012/11/yo-dawg.htmlThis method is basically tracing the source image three times, throwing away the traces, and starting from scratch looking at the photo.It can really help you get through blockages you may have with negative space and the strange shapes you see when you two-dimensionalize an image.So tracing can be helpful for warm ups, though. L: But I don't keep those for the final uploads.
