Join Bert Monroy for an in-depth discussion in this video Viewing a nose from the front, part of The Making of Times Square: The People.
In the previous movie, we saw how the nose was created.…That was a nose in profile.…Here we're looking at a nose straight on.…Now the techniques are pretty much the same.…However, there are a few little changes that need to be added.…Here we have two different nostrils, and you can see that because of the slight…angle that we're looking at them, we see a different type of a view.…Now your particular person that you're doing, if they are a real person,…well, you really have to look at the structure of their nose.…If you're making them up, well, they can have four nostrils.…There could be some kind of an alien.

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.
