While jumping around on the internet recently, procrastinating from my actual work, I came across (pun, if you like) a gorgeous photo of the amazing Francois Sagat. What caught my eye most about the photo wasn't the fishnet 'pants' or leather gloves but the awesome blocks of shadowed muscle projecting from Sagat's back! It looked like the face of a cliff and I just had to draw it.
Sagat takes such incredible pictures. I mean that he himself takes great photos but also when he works with a photographer, Sagat seems to know his own body well enough to strike terrific poses that show off his anatomy to best advantage. Certainly he's made a living doing 'nude' work, shall we say ;) but I've seen 'fashion' photo shoots with him that would be at home in Vogue or Vanity Fair. Check out his blog...I think you'll be pleasantly surprised at the artistry in his photos.
