Pak Dirman by Lemi4 Pak Dirman by Lemi4
Mr. Dirman Rismadi is a freelance Final Artwork Artist working at my agency. What an FA artist does is he prepares (mostly digital) artwork created by graphic designers and/or art directors, and he makes sure that it complies with the specifics of the magazine/publisher/whatever output method desired. Things like gutter, bleed, color model, etc. It requires diligent attention to detail.

He freelances only for the money; his main occupation is as a naturalist painter, specialising in oil and pastel on canvas. He gave me some tips on charcoal sketching. Perhaps most important among them is that I actually can sketch. Even though not perfectly yet.

Though not much, I think this is the best sketch of anyone that I've ever made of a person. Aside from that one sketch of Lurino at a warnet I did a couple of years ago; which I haven't had the opportunity to scan yet. Still a long way to go to catch up to artists academically trained at graphic design schools, methinks. But I'm definitely heading there. No matter what anyone would say.

And the hand is pinching the mouse, instead of holding it properly. And yes, I have a long way to go before becoming a Florentinian naturalist sketcher.

florentinian? to simplify things up, why not manga-style before going natural?
