    okay. I just got the time to read through the comments, and I understand that you have more of Fixlers works, but you won't show them, because a book with his drawings, maybe will be released.
    If this book will be available someday, I would sure like to know.

    Where to find Fred Fixler Drawings

    If anyone is interested in finding Fred Fixler's drawings you can contact CAI in Westlake, Ca.

    http://www.calartinst.com

    They have hundreds of Fred's drawings and are currently photographing them to get his work recorded. I last heard they may put out a book, but I'm sure they would be interested in hearing from people looking for his work.

    Unfortunately, there are no websites that showcase his work, only on the walls at CAI.

    Once again, some really informative process images I notice the images u posted is from the Harold Speed book. It is a really good book, abit tough on the reading side though haa...

    Haven seen much painting from u btw... Are you concentrating more on drawing now ?

    Strong studies, very nicely done! i remember seeing most of these when i was in your class on the first day then transfered out with the few other students to the other studio.

    Hey i'm the girl from LCAD who asked you about your Conceptart.org account, remember me? Check out some of my stuff if you can! It's in the "its finally finished" part of the forums

    drawing - paintings to come, maybe.

    Mihail - Thank you Mihail.

    Mydrako - Thanks. I didn't know they were from Harold's book, Some of them are plates that I added too and the face handout is a pass me down from CAI and other small figure schools in the area. I paint a lot - I'm trying to finish a body of work, my first, then I'll put it out there. Right now I need to let it grow. Why is painting such a pain in the ass?

    Dizon - Thanks, whatever will get me there.

    BillPerry - Thanks Bill, I can't take claim to the information - it's meant to keep moving on.

    courtyard - thank you for the support. Your work is coming along nice - you're seriously committed.

    llex_paul - Thank you, I'm always being influenced by others work too, thanks for looking.

    callie catastrophe - Hi Callie, I remember you. Bummer you got moved to the other class. Great work - keep it up.

    Sirkenneth - Thanks, I enjoy your thread too!

    Here's a drawing from a recent workshop, thanks Sammy! When's the next one??

    Meredith Head Drawing

    This is one of my former students. She has great shapes and I loved the contrast of her hair against the white paper. I used Vine, 2b charcoal pencil, compressed charcoal, conte, and a little graphite to flatten down some of her shapes in her face.

    I chose to simplify out her basic planes in her face. I like playing with how little information I need to have a form read. Sometimes it works, sometimes not. I feel it's important to try it out anyway, the worst that can happen is it fails.

    Your lines are so confident, I like your pieces.

    When you said you use 2HB-4HB on newsprint, did you use 4HB for the very darks too or did you use something else? I usually need to switch to 6HB or other media for that if I want to go black black.

    Thank you.

    Love your work Hope. I've been beating myself up over how I should go about learning the figure but your tips and advice to others has helped me realize what I am probably more comfortable with. I recently became a student of Jon Hardesty's so hopefully soon i'll be putting up some of that work.

    Portrait Drawing

    *ViRuS* - Thank you

    RokasButkys - Thanks for the kind words

    Ghostbrush - Good luck with your Atelier training, thanks,

    Dibujio::Guru - I love bananas! Thanks, just trying to get better and enjoying the process. One day maybe a book.

    Kaycy is tanning - When working on Newsprint I only use 2b and 4b charcoal pencils. When using charcoal paper I go into Conte and other mediums.

    Chaser226 - great for visiting my thread, your work is nice. Keep up the good work.

    mpdpsy - Thank you, it's all about drawing everyday. Keep it up.

    mattlinz - Thanks, your work is also nice, great thread.

    LumoGraphite - Good luck studying with Jon. You'll do great. Take it bit by bit and work everyday.

    towy - Thank you. Keep it up. Try to draw from life as much as you can.



    here's a portrait I'm working on. It's charcoal on white charcoal paper. I've been implementing the use of a sharpened end of a paint brush to flatten down tones instead of blending and using very hard pencils over softer pencils to also flatten down tones.

    Welcome back.. we have been missing ur beautiful works... Another great work in the making. I loved how u create the wispy feel of the hair and the soft tone of the skins. I notice though the highlight running down the bridge of the nose seems abit too narrow and intense, make her nose seems rather sharp.

    Hope love this new head drawing! you mean the wooden end of the brush for blending ? Can't wait to see how you do your drawings in Jan! Looking forward to it... and -- you're right my drawings and paintings morph depending on the teacher as I try to really figure out what they're doing.. sooner or later it will settle down into.. me ? (but only when there is a good solid base!) -- who knows! Cheers, Kevin
