Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Final words, part of Bert Monroy: The Making of Times Square, The People.
So here now we have come to the end of the making of Times Square.…And here, I am standing on the streets of Times Square at the crossroads of the world.…Crossroads of the world where everything is possible and everything is here.…Everything from soft flowing hair, to bright lights, to reflective glass, to…metal, to dirty asphalt.…All these different things that make up this incredible scene.…You now have the skillset because they've taught you throughout this series how…to create these different elements.…And like I said throughout the series, it's not what I was doing but how I was…doing that is important.…
You can have little change here and there, and you can create anything that your…imagination can come up with.…So now that we look at the overall scene, it took me four years to do this.…It was wonderful to get it done and it's really wonderful to see this series…come to an end, which now is a beginning for you, because now you have a…whole new skillset.…Go out there and use it.…
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.
