    I love it all, man. I like the fresh, fast feel your lifedrawing keeps. Doesn't feel stiff. Great lines. What's your art background?

    Oh my, I love, love, LOVE the mood and atmosphere you captured and created in the oil painting. I can't take my eyes of it, only doing so to write a reply. And the soft cotton fabric works so well with the portrait. She looks alive and gorgeous. The subtlety of her lips is really nice with the boldness of her hair and her round eyes. That painting though, I can't find the words to describe how awesome I see it.
    I'm dumbstruck right now.

    I just stumbled across this post looking for inspiration after spending most of my day off drawing. I found it. These are sickeningly beautiful. Is there anything about the figure drawing method you mentioned that you could share with us? I live so far from California...

    I cannot believe how good this is! Being involved in figure drawing now myself, it seems like a loooong way to go for me..
    Great stuff!

    Thanks

    I feel like I fell off the face of the earth. Life happens. I'm back.

    -Hope


    Slobosaurus - Thank you!

    SFA- Thanks again. Can't do too bad when I'm working with Malo.

    theTooninator - Thank you for the nice comments. I studied at the Academy in SF, but really got most my useful knowledge from Glenn Orbik at CAI in Westlake, Ca.


    chriis.zed - Thank you. Keep drawing. Look at lots of good drawings.

    Phishy - Cool Thanks!

    Cella - Thanks Celia for the enthusiastic thumbs up. I had fun painting that one. It's of a friend of mine in San Francisco.

    john_d - Hi John, thanks. I'll post some handouts that I find very useful as soon as I scan them. I've learned lots of ways to construct and simplify the figure. Learning when to use what method can sometimes be tricky. I started drawing the figure in 1999, but was lazy about learning construction. I feel that I still struggle with it today. It's always much harder to go back and re-learn stuff. I've had to learn to let go of bad habits along the way. Along with my handouts I'll post links to some really good books.

    Chupacabra - Wow thanks. I love your work. You're a true Renaissance man.

    Amazing stuff Raileyh!! I think I'm going to start posting my drawings here since they're mostly figure drawings and also because I'm not getting much feedback from the sketchbook section ^^

    You capture so much feeling with what looks like so few strokes. I love your arrangement of values in all of your paintings. Can't wait to see the finish on that head!

    Astounding woman.

    The painting and drawing of Malo are just arresting! As are all you painting sketches. Since I started the local uninstrtd wrkshp circuit, I've had the pleasure of drawing Malo these last few weeks. You've captured her dark beauty incredibly well. Wonderful grasp of tone.
    Design is what it's all about, not just capturing what you see. Well, ya talked me into seeking my ol' teacher again. Gonna be doing the drive to Westlake for a good dose of G.O.

    Beautiful work as always and thanks for poppin into my SB.

    Oh, Hope...it's simply exquisite. Approximately how long did this take you? I'm really looking forward to those handouts you mentioned a few posts back.

    Great paintings! I'm still more fascinated with your charcoal drawings though, specifically your gestures. Show me the way!!!!

    Oh and yes, I'm at AAU taking my 2nd figure drawing class with Henry Yan.

    Hope you don't mind the simple "awesome" comment, but it just feels wrong reading through this thread and looking at your drawings and just not giving you a high five.

    Awesome.

    Chaser226 - Thanks, Good to hear your studying with Henry. Your progress is nice.

    - Thanks man

    Gloominati - Thank you

    Really great stuff!! I totally love ur figure drawings. They are so expressive, yet offer enough details to suggests the forms and volume.

    At the moment I am utterly confused by all the different methods of figure construction and u mentioned in ur previous posts u too have learned many different methods. Probably no method is superior to the other but is used in different situation. Could u be kind enough to briefly describe some of methods that you learned and utilized ? and maybe why u use it? Basically ur thought process when u approach a drawing.

    Also, does the method differs when u are approaching a long pose vs a quick pose?
