    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.

    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!
