Wacky Reference Wednesdays, No. 23

Wednesday, September 17, 2008

I'm always on the lookout for good reference — anything and everything that could possibly help me to understand light and form. This often results in the purchase of strange artifacts, such as the bodybuilding trophy below, that add to the hodgepodge collection of props on my desk.

If you're about to do a Silver Surfer painting (or would just like to feel better by giving yourself a bodybuilding trophy) I found it at Crown Awards for $3.50. You can even get it engraved.

  1. Y'know, I never thought about that for a silver surfer reference...not that I've drawn silver surfer before, but that's a great idea.

    Goes to show you that some of those weird useless objects you have around the house can prove invaluable when it comes to drawing.
