The Deposition, Part 31
This entire progress shot is dedicated to the crucified man’s body and background blending. I went as far as mostly swapping the outlines. What I mean is, in the previous version the outlines of the man’s shoulders and arms were created by a line. In this version the line melts into the background and the background itself creates the outline. The process of doing this needs to follow the light as it is designed in the drawing. For example I apply the blending much more on the lit side of the arms (the top of them) and as I travel vertically from top to bottom of the arm the outline creation reverses and so there’s a line again at the bottom of them.
