I have started doing some courses via the new CDW Studio that Simon Scales has opened up here in Adelaide.
The first class was run by Tim Mcburnie and was a fantastic insight into some of the underlying skills and process behind his images.
Below is a tonal sketch portrait I sketched as he went over some of the underlying basics to drawing in Photoshop:
Above: a quick copy I did of Tim's character and composition he was working on as a demonstration in class. His process of drawing is very different to what I have been taught, so it was a great opportunity to sketch along and try and get a feel for the different approach!
