(Another New Studio)
I got a new VR program – Gesture VR that uses 3d scans of models to allow you to practice gestural life drawing in VR (while wearing a headset). Like all digital programs (I might make Art Rage an exception so there will be others) the mark making is pretty rigid and very hard to get variety into. I have done some small drawings in the virtual studio, shown below, but the big virtue of it for me was that I could use it with my Quest 2 with pass through active so that I could see the model in the space while I drew on paper in the studio. The above drawing is my first effort. Charcoal on paper with a bit of white chalk and around ninety minutes.
After finishing(?) ‘Lemniscate Wave cc’ I got an email from the UKSPF Art Grant regarding moderation. I got a small grant from them to produce some drawings with an attached AR element as a downloadable app for smart phones.
Communications of any kind always break into the flow of work so the ‘Redfilm’ and developments of the lemniscates are on the back burner for a while as I resolve the timetable for the ‘Doncaster Platonics’ [UKSPF Art Grant].
The five drawings will be used as triggers for video/animation about aspects of Doncaster related to the classical elements as listed.
I’ve continued to draw every day;
