Project LV One – Day 243 – My and Rene

Model head - colour

Anyone examining my Pinterest boards will notice that over the past few weeks I have been taken by the work of René Gruau.  I find his simple use of line and colour very appealing.


If you had read yesterday’s blog you will also know that I hold the artists who worked for the Disney animation studio in high regard.  They have a similar approach to René Gruau in that tried to distill the character they were animating down to very simple lines.  Of course the reason is that, when making a movie, the drawings had to be reproduced by their thousands and so any complicated design or colours would have made any sense of continuity in the movie nonsensical.

Peter DinklageWhich brings me to Peter Dinklage.  I made this drawing earlier on today.  He has such an angular face that it well suits the way I draw.  The connection between the three?  None really other than they were all made this morning.  Maybe one day someone might want to make some of it, which I doubt but never say never, until that day arrives the drawings should stand on their own.  To quite a rather hapless Tory minister, “End of”.
