Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Great composition and feeling to this sketch. I like the hand lettered signature, dating and title in the corner.
I dig it. I like the close to the eye plants getting detail , pointing up the hill and fading off. Nice Eye grabbbing.You've got a very fun grid in your head for space that you trust. I was interested in what grid or perspective is closest approximated by what camera lens.The convential wisdom is a 55mm. But one authority said it would be more like a 43mm.
Thanks fellas. I like this one, too. I was in a comfortable frame drawing here. Drawing the details of the clipped grass with the weeds punching through after the recent mowing was the kind of challenge I like to take.
Ellis, I'm not too familiar with camera lens measurements. The grass blades in the foreground were about two feet from me, the vehicles maybe 125 feet.
I'm not really talking about (depth of field?) what's in focus or not. I'm talking about the grid present in the human eye that perceives the receding angles of a parallelogram.What a box looks like to you in the real world. Many comic book artists put down vanishing points and follow the rules those angles impose on objects in his drawing almost always ending up with distortion. Because he includes way more picture plane than the eye actually manages to include in the usual view our eye allows us.
My guess is 55mm.
That's as close as you need to get. Between 45mm and 55mm would be human like. We have side by side panorama which confuses the issue
Ron I love it! You've posted for a paltry month or two and already I'm desperate to see the Thompson Sketchbook published. Blair saw it and said, "Oooh! Do you think he'd sell us one??"The stuff looks great, my friend. Thank you for sharing.My eyeballs are 50mm, but without Buncake's Steve Austin-like 300mm zoom capability.
Your drawings are always so honest and your compositions the envy of us all. Nice work!
Such kind words, I'm blushing.
