i really wanted to bring a new line of stamps to the market that allowed the user to create faces without the labor of having to draw the proportions on their own...myself included! over the past year i have fallen in love with learning more about drawing faces...the shading the shaping the coloring, etc, but the part that i have always found a bit labor intensive was the proportioning. i pretty much understand the "full frontal" if you will, but for the profile and 3/4 views i wanted to draw, i needed some help. that's when it hit me, STEPHEN!!
so i enlisted the technical skills of Stephen Lursen for developing the profiles and side views i wanted. for those of you that have visited the STUDIO you may have met Stephen in person, but if you haven't, he is our education coordinator at the STUDIO and resident artist extraordinaire.
WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS SOONER, lol!!!
Stephen has his masters in fine art and when it comes to learning the details of drawing faces/figures etc he has the patience of a saint and has taught me so much. so i want to introduce you to our first collaborative release of faces stamps in two sizes that we hope will take the stress out of drawing faces for EVERYONE!!
i got the chance to play with them in my junk journal this weekend, really just hacking around, playing with hair styles, but you can see how they work.
