What the fuck is a gelatin study? Anonymous 03/04/2021 (Thu) 01:03:57 No. 1859
I saw "gelatin study" mentioned in a drawpile session, but I haven't been able to figure out what it is and why it would be helpful. I assume it means that you just draw or paint jello, but I'm uncertain what it actually improves. Anyone have any clue? Maybe Loomis could explain what he meant?

A "[subject] study" is basically what it sounds like, just observing something from photograph or from life and trying to recreate it to the best of your ability on your canvas in your chosen medium, trying to discern how it looks and how you could apply that knowledge to something else. >the studies I was talking about in Drawpile are present in last week's Monday/Saturday canvas and you can check them out yourself for more context
>>1859 I decided I wanted to paint gelatin- that includes things like gummy candy, because I found the subject interesting and one of my influences frequently puts them in his work. I just like the way it looks. Learning how light acts through different material is a part of learning how to paint a lot of things because it might not act the same depending on the material. It's also fun to challenge yourself by walking into unfamiliar territory.

>>1886 The makers of the dummy might be cutting costs by putting a shitty prop skeleton inside, also the refraction in the gel might be causing some of the distortions.I checked the the price for a full body dummy & they are fucking expensive. $6,100 for a full body dummy, they should be putting proper medical skeleton or a real human skeleton & it still would be cheaper.
>>1889 Since they're made for being destroyed by testing weapons, accuracy on anatomy really should be the top priority. Especially at that price.
