Frank Hampson

Frank is someone who's approach to illustration is similar to mine. He uses real people to pose for his comic scenes and then he traces them over with his characters keeping the realness and the essence of the structure. Recently in my projects I have been doing something similar such as the kissing dolls project where I used my brother and my sister to pose for me and then I would use illustrator to trace over and I would then end up with quite dramatic and effective postures and compositions. I then went on to add textures and what not. In future I will be approaching my work quite similarly to Frank's method. With this I can not only have accurate human postures but I will also be able to create dramatic angles which tend to intrigue me quite often.
