Video: Cast drawing ‘Ear’

cast drawing Ear_800

I’ve made a video for my website www.cast-drawing.com

It’s a cast drawing of the ear plaster cast that I am offering in my shop and which is the best selling product of them (besides the skull). You can also see this ear in a drawing by Heather – I wrote about it here.

Another cast from my shop is the mouth piece – here is a cast drawing of the mouth with critiques. And also a Beethoven cast drawing.

For my drawing I used a regular fine 185g/m² drawing paper from a drawing pad and 3 pencils H, HB & 2B and it took me about 8 hours. The editing of the video took even longer 🙁

 

In my little studio (attic) I just have flourescent light tubes that don’t make a spotlight. Instead of mounting a regular bulb for a spot light source I just wrapped some black card board over the excess tubes. Since flourescent tubes don’t become hot I wasn’t concerned about burning my studio down.

Not shown in the image: I also covered the window to be able to work during the day without changing light conditions. So here is a quick sketch of this setup:

First I taped the paper onto my multi purpose chipboard and then the cast was mounted on the board with a screw. Simple but good.
