169 Faces. Almost finished!!!!!

Posted by Sermarr

Well the days have been accomplished that I should almost be delivered of 169 faces. And what a great undertaking it has been... To study the contours on human expressions. None of these are portraits. And none are characatures
And I have learned a lot about structure and coloring of faces
And that is easy to see when you look at my first face, Adam, which I've kept unretouched.
So enjoy!

169 Faces

Posted by Sermarr

Today I was the artist-in-residence at my gallery,Volo. I have been working on this piece at the gallery. It requires me to move across each face making minor corrections to each to better capture each face. Even having worked with it for a long time, I am forever surprised at how faces are so different from one another, and how each expression is so different. Just the smallest alteration in the angle of the lips or eyes and the face becomes hostile or resigned. So here they are so far

169 Faces. Forever and ever

Posted by Sermarr

Today was more faces. This is taking a very long time but I feel like I know some of these faces like people. Here are a few details. I just keep going around and around making changes as I go trying to not make changes when the face looks "finished". But not a lot of them do yet.

169 Faces. Onward

Posted by Sermarr

I worked on this the last few days. I now have 168 faces and 167 names And I'm working on trying to get these to be more fully realized and more similar in coloring and size. I've worked on this piece for over a year on and off. So here are some of the details and the total picture so far

169 Faces. Minus a few

Posted by Sermarr

I've worked all day on 169 Faces. And interruptions have left me behind where I wanted to be at the end of day. And I just can't do anymore quality work to make up the time lost. It is frustrating but I will try again tomorrow and it may not be in this show. Which I really wanted to happen. But I can't show it in its current rough form. We'll see what happens tomorrow.

169 Faces

Posted by Sermarr

I worked most of the day on 169 Faces. And applying names. Such faces and names of people very down on their luck at some point in their life. It's amazing how many hard luck heroes we have. I guess part of being a hero is to overcome some big obstacle. Or to perish after having done something famous...like Mozart So here they are,so far
