CopyCat Nat #9: warning and minilidia

2

Since I missed last month's article, I painted two this month! See how I've combined two lomographs into one in this painting after the jump.

Credits: warning & minilidia

I’ve tried something new for this painting; a combination of two photos to create one painting of my interpretation. The main portion of this was a photo of the lovely warning. However, instead of her, we see a skeleton’s skull, neck, and arm from minilidia ’s photo.

Strange? Yes, pretty strange. But I’ve been learning about human physiology at school, so I decided, why not? We’ve been studying bones on the skeleton of a real human, or, what used to be a real human. In any case, I switched out @warning's body for a mystery person’s skeleton.

To be honest, it was quite difficult for me to get parts of this painting right with the materials I was using. But I kept going despite the disappointment at the results I was getting after redoing many parts of it.

I began with the hair, top to bottom. I’ve always loved the ombre hairstyle with bangs, especially on @warning (painting this made me miss my old hair…). I used a thicker brush so as to cover more space, and finished the hair. X-pro colors are usually quite hard to match exactly with paint but I did what I could and painted the shirt in. Cross hatched and scribbled the grass/hay in the back, (got a little bit lazy) and filled in all the white space.

Last of all was the skeleton. I painted the humerus and vertebra in the neck first (human physiology vocabulary, woohoo!) followed by the sternum and tip of the clavicle peeking out of the shirt. The skull came last (and it took multiple revisions before I was finished). The dark eye sockets just below the bangs followed by the lower half of the skull. Some quick shading, and voila!

    Cool painting. Even though you didn't use @warning's face, you can still tell that the source photo was of her.

    Two Days and One Night in Vibrant Sapa

    For three months last year, I traveled to 11 cities of eight Southeast Asian countries. My first destination from my hometown of Seoul was Vietnam. After 10 days in Hanoi, I joined a group tour to Sapa, an area known for its hill tribes. This is a photo story of my two days and one night in this remote but vibrant place.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!

    Fresh from My Darkroom: The First Game of the New Rugby Season

    Last Sunday, the local rugby team Rugby Como played the first match of the 2014-1025 season. Rugby is my favorite sport to photograph, and for some years I've been documenting almost every home match of this young team. This time I used a 1959 Zorki 5 camera with a vintage 1958 Industar-50 lens loaded with a timeless film, the Ilford HP5+ developed in a century-old developer, the mythical Rodinal. Take a look after the jump!

    Fresh from the Lab: Hari Raya Portraits

    A couple of weeks ago, my family and I celebrated Hari Raya after a month of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. Since the first day I laid my hands on the Lubitel 166+, I've always had the thought of taking portraits of my family. So this year, I finally took them. Here they are: Hari Raya Portraits!

    Lomography Redscale XR 50-200 120: Perfect for Endless Multiple Exposures!

    About two years ago or so, I purchased the Lomography Redscale XR 50-200. I saved just one roll of this film and waited for the right moment to shoot with it. In April this year, I just wasn't able to take it anymore! I loaded this film into my Lubitel 166+, which I realized I hadn't used for maybe about six months. One idea came to mind: taking crazy multiple exposures!

    For the past three months, I've been living alternately between three cities: Bandung, Bogor, and Jakarta. I'm originally from Bandung. I now work in Bogor, sometimes in Jakarta. I could be in Bogor on a Friday, Bandung on a Saturday, and Jakarta on a Monday. Shuttling between these three cities, I don't forget to document what I see and experience with my LC-Wide.
