Head Turnaround - 360 Backlighting by RobynRose Head Turnaround - 360 Backlighting by RobynRose

This is diferent again. Where prior deviations achieved the simple task of presenting a well lit figure, this deviation sets up an artful & mindful representaion.

This atmosphere is inspiring. I love the full range of value. Whats more, the values have a place. there is a specific deep value shaping the hair and facial feature. There is a lighter value only occuring on the bra. A value diferent again occurs for the fleshtone shadows.

and then

Pop....that hot spot chiseling out the features. This is a style. This is a way to tell the story...almost creatint myth to spread out over 12 images and unify them.

As a figure study tool... it exceeds the requirements to the point of challenging the student to literaly draw the air around the figure.

Excellent deviation

This can only expand the choices the artist can make in representing the human form for study....And I still see room for improvement in the technical aspect of photography.

I am no photographer and i leave that crit to my peers.

5 stars all but technique which gets 4

gingerfreek Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2013
if one has to purchase these pictures to see them in full resolution, please, make sure the resolution is big enough so one can actually use them as reference... and separate pictures would be better, too. 
I needed a turnaround reference and am very disappointed by these. Pictures are too small to see the details, the head is not on the same level in each picture etc.. :(

-3- Once again, the exact thing I need isn't a drawing, but a stock. Guess I could try turning it into a drawing, if that's ok...

I did a study of one of these :)
Thank you!
kyokuchan Featured By Owner May 19, 2012
Wow, these are great, really inspiring.
It would be interesting if you used some textures (like, with some piece of cloth) an see how the light behaves with those textures (or maybe you have done it, i havent seen your entire gallery yet, but what i have seen its really awesome!)

Thanks for this !
RobynRose Featured By Owner May 19, 2012
Do you mean using them like a shadow stencil, or the lighting on draped cloth?
kyokuchan Featured By Owner May 26, 2012
Draped Cloth :D
RobynRose Featured By Owner May 26, 2012
I have some samples of draped cloth in my Let's Draw section, though they don't use special lighting.
Dakuu75 Featured By Owner May 18, 2012  Student Digital Artist
This is like... perfect refrence for drawing, thank you for this. I often have trouble with the lines around the soulders and breasts and where they should intersect or overlap at the 3/4 view. So this will be super useful for me, thanks again. And if I do any new sketches while staring at this for refrence i'll be sure to credit you via a link to your acount.
Mawilowu Featured By Owner May 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
I don't know if anyone already told you this, but you remind me of Katniss Everdeen in the Hunger Games. You're beautiful!

gcallus Featured By Owner May 18, 2012  Professional Traditional Artist
