Technique: Mr. Hancock discusses below. Artist's Comments TOPICS: The female anatomy, and a positive take on the female personality, is central to anything that I do. Then she can go anywhere in or out of this world in pursuit of her exploits. MODELS: These are images (photo or drawn) of my own models. Even with mixed works that have a photo within them, most clothing (even,as with Barbie dolls, most dresses are "put" on them), all jewelry, all hairdos and all environmental elements are mouse drawn. All models are over 18 (21 where necessary), release forms are signed and the model has been compensated. I never use stock images of any type. I have a multitude of beautiful models in my files, with over 600 photos of each. I am so VERY SLOW in producing pieces that it will be years before some of my models are seen. The ladies could even be grandparents by then = if I am still able to move a mouse! If I state that it is all a digital drawing, then that means that Photoshop, Twisted Brush and many other programs were used to go from an outline (purposefully not the photo), identical in principle to a traditional artist's first sketch. This restriction is to conform to purist expectations. After the female star, all else is drawn free hand with no initial sketch or plan. For instance, that last statement decribes how the ice in Hers Was The Only Frozen Ancient Found came to be. A SUMMARY OF MY TECHNIQUE: is that I use the new softwares to more sculpture a 2D piece than draw it = (clone, stamp, shape, reshape, then shade and texture, all repeated hundreds of inefficient times). I realize that I violate every standard technique of drawing. Now I can do it no other way. (see, your teacher was right = bad habits are hard to break). On the other hand, it is also impossible for me to do the "same old same old".
Biography: Abridged Bio: Terry Hancock This artist studied at Purdue U. (AD, BA, MS), applies electronic visual arts in combination with his anatomical studies as a medical practitioner (IU Med Center), and feels both beauty and a story are required components. Terry was born in southern Indiana (USA) in 1948. Surrounded by luscious forests and green limestone quarries, he chose to pass his time through indoor pursuits, such as amateur radio, film and studio recording. As hobbies and past times, these experiences directly transferred to his digital still photography and editing. And his later knowledge as a medical practitioner appears to have assisted in anatomy studies. He now lives in NM. Sometimes done pixel by pixel, his bright, bold and cheery art began only in 2001. He is proud that the work many times elicits a smile. Smile? Well, his consistent themes are usually conservative (especially in this age) eroticism and a very positive image of the female - all that, in fantasy land. His work was not patterned after any specific individual artist.
