Rubens and Rodin

speechless. the lines are perfect and the I can’t even talk about the cross-shading.

For a closer look, go here.

I saw (more like stared) a couple of Rubens‘ original anatomic pencil sketches on Tuesday and I am still blown away. His predecessor was Leonardo Da Vinci, so I guess his work was always going to be pretty damn awe-inspiring. But man, this stuff is made of genius. I am going back to the museum so I can study these better. I mean, my sketches look so pitiful in comparison I don’t want to post them up anymore.

Here’s what I’ve been reading up on:
