Frontal Lighting


For me, lighting the model from the front is the most challenging. Although there were no large shadow shapes the model's dark features helped with the drawing. The Russian painters of the 19th c. had success with bold lighting situations combined with a cooler palette.

Hi Justin,

Nice study. I think the eyes and the hair are very well done. Try making the beard and the skin connect better by making the edges between the two softer.
