ART, SCULPTURE AND COLOR.
(The Emperor Hadrian ,
The Louvre, reference to “Much Ado About Nothing
I was recently viewing artwork cd’s .
There was a bust of a Roman Emperor, Hadrian ;- The original
is noted (WIKI)-first in the pics,
my coloring is 2nd., then the Louvre Building West Wing .
I was impressed with the lifelike appearance and ability of the sculptor to fashion the image . .
If you notice, the original looks somewhat colorized, but to
the coloring effect in Adobe you first have to
convert the picture to B_W.
Also I know a lot more shading would have made this attempt more lifelike .
I think it the original was noted as being in the Louvre
If you’ve read Shakespeare’s
play ” Much Ado about Nothing” a sculptor’s
talent makes a lifelike sculpture of
a character to have some time to reveal truth then seemingly
“resurrect” the character “Hero” (a female
betrothed ) .
6 /23 /2014 –I apologize, I think I made a
mistake in referencing impressive lifelike sculpture in
literature,I don’t think there is a statue in the play “Much Ado…..”
I’ll have to reread the play. but
it’s in one of his plays ….:). That’d be for a Shakespeare
buff to know.
I never saw a sculpture that I’d mistake for a person if
it was paitned to form, with marble or cement. I would
think it’d be painstaking to achieve.
Maybe Madame Troudeu’s (?) wax sculptures.
So this is done with Adobe as an effect to give
more realism to the stone figure.
The eyes were the most difficult to give a realistic appearance . Actually woulda been easier to sketch .
The rest is done with layers and opacity to
keep the undershades .
I’ve retouched /colorized some older b-w
photos this way, the results are usually realistic .
SPACE FOR EDIT
AND MORE at 3:00 AM my orginal
interest was in the sculpture aspect of this …. but here
goes more …..
OK, so here i retouched to a portrait style realism . … And I’m
|Retouch with emboss as a back
layer and darkening

The Pantheon in Rome, one of the most famous buildings in
the world, was commissioned by the Roman emperor Hadrian.
The structure was built between 118 and 128, and replaced a
smaller temple. Hadrian was also responsible for building
the fortification wall in England known as Hadrian’s Wall.
