Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating the contours of the face, part of The Making of Times Square: The People.
Creating the porches of all the people on the streets, there are many things to keep in mind.…The hair, the eyes, the lips.…All the things are very important to get the features just right to make…people look like who they are. Equally as important of course as the contours of the face.…I am going to zoom in here my daughter Erica's face right there.…And we see that there are all these features.…There's the nose, the types of eyebrows, and so on, but things like cheeks and…the little tones underneath her eyes, these are very crucial to get the full…character of the face.…So let's see how some of these features were created.…
I have here the file of just her face.…This is the file where her face was created.…Let me go in here and just look at these little cheek areas.…When we look at the overall layers, see at the top there's the Composite layer.…That's the one where I bring it into the main file where I add the hair and…the other features.…But we're going to go down here to the head.…We're going to look at just the head.…
In this installment, The People, Bert illustrates how he created the hyperrealistic portrayals of the dozens of people inhabiting his painting, many of which he drew from real-life friends and family. The course shows how to construct eyes, lips, ears, and other facial features, paint natural looking skin, add hair, apply makeup, and create fabric folds, stitching, and texture to emulate clothing. Bert shows how digital artists can recreate these effects at home, using the tools in Photoshop and Illustrator and a little imagination.
