Friday

Enough of the philospohy of art! Today I got back to drawing out Attainment of Global Fame. It features a "crowd" at the bottom and it's proving problematical. The plan used an abstracted crowd like in The Joyous Birth Of The All-New Transhumanic Super Beings but I'm not sure it fits in with the more realistic design of the rest of the picture. On the other hand, I often find that abstraction has more energy and feeling than actual depection, just as a charicature is often a better likeness than a portrait.

Any crowd scene would be difficult to model and draw. I'm thinking that a mass of toy soldiers or similar figures could be used to quickly model a crowd. The angel figure and the main one are pretty much drawn now, apart from hands and faces.
