    Great, great stuff. I love your way of sketching but I'd be curious to see more developed drawings of yours. Are these 5, 10 minute poses? You give a good sense of what the whole figure is doing - setting the pose. Continue to wow us please

    Oruhito, Thank you Oruhito - I'll either post finished here or on my site - probably on my site though. I have 8 or so paintings in progress, but should be done soon.

    Kevinwueste, Thanks. I studied with a lot of people at the Academy. It wasn't until I graduated and studied with Glenn Orbik at CAI in Westlake that I got a grasp on the figure - though I still have long to go. I suggest going to lots of workshops (Lee Ballard may still run one - it's a good one) , study with Yan, Wu, and Chuck Pyle if you can,but learn how to construct the figure before getting into any of the techniques at the Academy.

    Really nice drawings

    At first I thought you were Henry Yan hehe, your charcoal drawings look very much like his. I noticed cus I recently had a look through his book: http://www.amazon.com/Henry-Yans-Fig.../dp/1427610231

    Impressive and inspiring work! Many thanks for sharing these - i feel truly refreshed. The shown techniques and styles are something i really look up to. I wish we had that kind of teaching classes here in vienna... i must speak of luck, when thinking about the lousy lifedrawing classes they offer us at the university. At least they offer us some models. But hey, not the right thread for ranting... sorry about that. Thanks again!

    a couple workshop drawings

    dariocoelho- Thank you, I know it's hard finding good Life drawing classes- I've spent a lot of time spinning my wheels in classes.


    shamandalie - Thank you




    renew- Thanks, Henry is awesome!! I've sat in on a few of his classes - he's the man.

    Great work! Your drawings and paintings have a solid sense of design and simplicity. Do you paint under natural light?

    These are awesome. What methods do you use for slight blending? Is that just the shadow over the paper? Looks a little like you airbrushed a light tone in some areas.

    New Head Drawing

    Here's a head drawing - little more finished - about 8 hours.

    -h

    Epias - Thank you. Hopefully there may be a publication of Fred's drawings one day, so I don't want to put too much of his work out in the public domain- Otherwise I'd post more, sorry.


    AndreasM - Thanks, I often paint in natural light. I find it a bit easier than warm indoor lighting. I sometimes use a soft box cool light with my sitters when working in doors.

    Maxetormer - Thankyou!

    Jason Ross - Thanks, I use a piece of soft cotton fabric, or a soft brush to get soft transitions with charcoal, sometimes I'll just use my thumb. There may be a shadow though.
