    Greetings. Long time sketchbook lurker, first time poster

    The following posts represent some of what I've done since relocating from Texas to L.A. for my arts education approx 6 months ago. I'll try and work towards developing some concept stuff, but I still feel that I need to pay my (significant) dues with figure drawing and draftsmanship in general.

    Comments, critiques, questions and suggestions welcome.

    Thanks for checking out my thread. It's funny that you've worked with Charles and Hope. I had Charles for AA last semester and Hope for the past 2 semesters of figure drawing. Your short poses look really good. When you get into the longer poses, take more time with construction and think about line quality. Your figures tend to have somewhat of an outline. I know Charles is a fan of the rough newsprint, but I just find it easier to get flat tones and smooth transitions on the smooth, using either the Conte or a 2b charcoal pencil. Keep drawing!

    really good life drawing
    however I think you should draw more from mind, otherwise it's useless
    it enables to know what are your weaknesses
    keep on drawing

    @MichelleFarro: Thanks for the observations. I've been unhappy with the heavy presence of contours in my drawings as of late also. As for line control, that's an issue I'm continuously working on since I have a heavy hand and tend to overpress (hurts my back/shoulder also).

    @Twan: The work from imagination will get addressed - I've just started a Creature Design class with Jerad Marantz and for our first homework assignment we're suppose to redesign three classic movie monsters. Wish me luck, I'm more inclined towards character designs, not creatures.

    Thanks Elz, I should have more stuff this week if creature design doesn't drive me up the walls.
