Me,Myself & Me again,
sound of silence,
Thanks for these, they're reminiscent of Kevin Chen's demos. Who's the class with?
Kevin is a good friend of my,matter of fact we are currently working in the same studio in city of Pasadena.
we both learn under the inference of Steve Huston,focusing on 3D stucture,gesture and rhythm on figures.
Actually it was him who suggested me to pose my demo n lecture up on this site,I'll put up diffenrent topic of the lecture each week,hope they will help
Hi Charles, these are great, i've learned a lot with the demos kevin has posted in here, So thank you for sharing these too. Hope to see more.
These are great drawings, thank you so much for posting them!
Where is it that you teach?
Most of these lecture n demo drawings were done from visual effects school ,Art institute of California n my studio in Pasadena.The big orange head. ha ha...was done at Pasadena Art center college of design 2 weeks ago.
very helpful, thank you. Hope to see more. Judy
Charles, this is travis Helenihi I'm ecstatic that your putting your demos online, your drawings are brilliant!
Gee....you are everywhere How's everything?how's your drawings n school?
Thank you for your comment.....I'm working on my blog and I'will put my painting work up there. I'will let you know when is done hopefully in next few weeks.
Keep up the good work
I like these drawings very much! Although I especially like them in the initial unfinished stages - the marks are more powerful in that they are suggestive of form, air, movement and space (i.e. they offer the opportunity to the viewer to visually converse with the image, whereas the more finished marks are much more dictatorial), and more confident that the more finished marks.

Thank you for your input, currently I'm having a student take pictures on different stages of my lecture and demo,I will post them when they are ready.
Thanks so much for these! I wish I could attend your lectures.
Thanks for putting these up! Will you be putting up more?
Yes, and I will put out different topic each week untill i run out the material...Ha Ha
cool thanks man..this is really helpfull!
Thanks for sharing Mr. Hu! I love the torso studies, very cool!
Love this teaching method, one can learn so much from it.
i also wish i could attend to your classes
I hate Photobucket. I hope to see your blog soon, it would be nice to see these images hosted without the worry of censorship, which incidentally makes a strong argument for uploading them directly to CA rather than linking them in. Thank you for posting your demos they are insightful and educational.
Very nice figure diagrams indeed Charles. I hope you will find this link helpful regarding the position of the highlight and a few other things about your sphere, though:
Hey charles, Travis here, can't wait to see more drawings. Hows your blog coming along? Is your website almost finished? Are you almost done with your M.A. program?
See you around!
Thanks a bunch for sharing these drawings !
The diagrams are very clear and informative.
Checking out your demo works.
Thanks for sharing, this is very interesting study and reference material for approaching muscular forms and construction.
Thanks for sharing!
This is very interesting style of anatomy study!

Very nice figure work, beautiful!.....
and thanks for posting those drawings,
they're instructive, and great refresher material
even to those of us who've been doing this for a while.
I see Dam McCaw is one of your studio mates....

Steve Selzer, and his wife Carol.
Good luck in your new studio venture.
