    when i fail to achieve quick values and form through such few line i'm back to studying the foundations you've already paved many times. thanks

    don't stop posting!!

    oh and may i ask? when approaching gestures, say 60-90 seconds, what are your thoughts, are you looking at the simple shapes, lines of bon structure? i'm working on line economy with my strokes and i always seem to have extraneous lines, etc.. and it doesn't accurately capture the pose as you've so beautifully done here.

    thanks.

    Hi Kevin, I've seen your SB and love your drawings. Great job! I wish you could give me some advices in my thread: http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=208699. What should I do to get better: more fast poses or concentrate in long poses to try to get experience?

    Hey Kevin, I really enjoy your shading technique. Its a treat for my eyes. limiting your shadow tones creates a simple yet more realistic result. You have a good understanding of light effects on shapes.

    Hello .. uh - Dope Fiend! short gestures - most of these are 2, 5 and 10 I think with a few 1's and 20 minute ones tossed in and about - If I am on my game ( which is rare) I am thinking about the action of the figure:

    from the back - what is the head to spine relationship - and I might draw a long line that represents that ; from the front - the head to sternum line and how it flows down the weighted leg. I also have extraneous lines but I erase them when they don't serve the drawing!!

    head basis shape first - key indications for the brow, chin and usually the temple and zygomatic bone.. stuff like that.

    one thing I will say is you are worried less perhaps about capturing what you are seeing accurately than you might be in designing a nice drawing. I would much rather that then an acurate, boring 2 minute gesture. So I try to push key things like the hip or leg or angle of contra-posto etc.,



    Does that help ?

    Hi cojac thank you and I will take a look! to get better, both will be useful, do you study Loomis - as in do LOTs of copies of his head and figure construction ? that will help. Also, reading J. H. Vanderpoel's book is a great tool. Also, moderin artists you admire - what are they doing that you are not, that you want to do ? copy their drawings with an emphasis on not just getting it right but discovering why they do something. When you get the "why" the rest becomese easier and you will see the model differently - more as a reference for designed drawing than something to copy.

    Thank you everyone for your kind and thoughtful commentary! I am humbled.. some recent things bunching up in my drawing bag.. painting bag.. what not! note: on left of two girl heads, my teacher was either over my shoulder or grabbing my drawing tool - so that has a lot of his direct "influence"! and why it's so good, sigh..

    Kevin--

    You keep posting great work--good job.

    I like all of it, but I find the painting of the bald guy (1st image in #539) particularly gorgeous: your marks, the sense of light, and the overall keen observation and atmosphere.

    Inspiring!

    cheers,
    Nick
