Friday Museum Sketchon August 10, 2012 at 6:26 am
Today’s sketch is yet another detail and angle of Lamentation of the Dead Christ by Massimiliano Soldani Benzi, previous sketches can be seen here and here. As I’ve mentioned before this is one of the pieces I keep coming back too since there is so much detail in it I can get a completely different drawing every single time. Even if I try to do the exact same angle.
This one is a bit of a mixed bag. As far as accuracy is concerned I kind of screwed the pooch. I fidgeted one too many times and ended up drawing at least three different angles at the same time and on top of that I don’t think I got the foreshortening on Christ’s leg’s quite right. Despite this I think I managed to pull it together and managed to do a halfway drawing even though it’s similarity to what I was looking at is lacking.
