Very nice stuff Dangerous. I'm interested in the class - I'm already signed up for Nathan's mon night class, so it would be a nice compliment.
Here's my stuff :

hey, Brendan, not bad! have you studied with Glenn Vilppu before? Your figures are reminiscent of his.
mmm... I guess they still haven't updated the supply list so I'll post it here:
1)Drawing board (large enough for 18 x 24 drawing pad)
2)18 x 24 sketch paper (Canson Biggie Sketch pad or similar)
3)Pencils- may use any from list:
- Derwent Drawing Pencil (ivory black 6700 or Terracotta 6400 or Venetian Red 6300)
- Faber-Castell Polychromos (Schwartz, Black 9201-199)
- Koh-I-Noor Hardtmuth GIOCONDA pencil (Red Chalk 8802 or Negro 8815/1)
- General pencil co. Kimberly pencil 525 9XXB
4)Single-edged razor blades
6)Sketchbook (for taking notes and sketching)
If you have conte and smooth newsprint that's ok to use in place of the bond paper and pencils I've listed.

INCREDIBLE work! I love how smoothly and gracefully you can render. This inspires me to want to bust out the grey paper and prismacolors...

nice drawings..they have volume,line, anatomy, ..but one thing they lack..strong form and sensitivity to value..i think a goo visit to the museum will help ,a deeper study for the softness of light can only be learnt from those white greek or academic sculptures..that will put a lot more refinement to your already strong drawings..

i just wish i was in LA so i could mooch some learning out of you... (nuts)
post more though, at least right now I can save your art and refer back to it when i think MY stuff looks like crap (which it does. my stuff does look like crap. crappy crappy crap.)
