David Bennett has a great knack for capturing the movement of the figure in glass. I found his work reminded me of artist Glenn Vilppu. Looking at Bennett’s work the style is very modern in design, as if the viewer was watching an immortalized dancer from Cirque Du Soleil.
Vilpuu was a drawing master who worked in the early stages of animation. Vilpuu was a teacher who taught many aspiring professionals the keys to capturing the figure from life. His lessons on tape or DVD about the human figure and basic anatomy are very inspiring to watch!
