Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating ears, part of Bert Monroy: The Making of Times Square, The People.
All the features that make up a person's face can differ from one person to the other.…They have to have to.…That's what gives them the personality.…The eyes, the mouth, the nose.…They all have different shapes.…There's one that's similar in most people and at the same time very complex and…very different, and that is the ears.…Ears can really define a person.…If a guy has been in a boxing ring for 20 years, his ears are going to look…really weird, whereas somebody who's just been playing in their garden there, ears…might be nice and clean and so on.…But the shape of that ear is important and it is made up of many different shapes.…
So what we're going to do is we're going to come in close here on one of the…characters here, Russell Brown.…I am going to deal with his ear, okay?…There you could see quite a few ears and they're all different.…So let's go and look at Russell Brown's face.…There's Russell Brown.…So if we look at the layers and here is the head layers and we see there's the ear,…a bunch in, you see that there's a few, all right?…
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.
