    Leiana - Thanks for compliment...I hope none of your teachers read it, but I do appreciate the observation. Here's some more pencil work to start page six. Thanks again.

    Burnt - Thank you. Here's another.

    This drawing was done in about two and a half hours. The model has this great asymmetrical face with soft skin and very unique classical details. I love her eyelids. Please let me know what you think.

    Nice work.
    I enjoy the soft rendering and great form.
    On the last one, her mouth proportions dont line up correctly with her face( Ive noticed you do that often).
    Also, watch the hands, you often spend little time on them, and it shows.

    j a k e - Thanks Jake.
    Gspot - Thank you.
    theos - I'm not sure why you posted in this thread after a month of it drifting away, but thanks so much for the compliment. I appreciate it.
    blanquish - There's a reasonable argument for a mouth not lining up perfectly (in parallel) with the other axis of the bottom of the chin, base of the nose, axis of the eyes. I find it important to make sure that all the axis recede towards the vanishing point, but sometimes the features of a face are so unique that one can't capture the physiognomy of a portrait without giving the rules of draftsmanship a little bit of the middle finger. I mentioned how much I enjoyed the asymmetrical qualities of that model and I stand by the drawing as is (specially how things lined up in the time I had). I'm glad I "do that often" and expect to see more of it. I feel obligated to do the study of life that service. Just being honest. Thanks for the reply.
    bhanu - Thanks, I hope the images help your journey.
    Call0ps - Thanks.
    Tigermilk - Thanks for your post and compliments.

    I don't know when I did these, but the first was done with a model that moved a lot so those shadows had to be adjusted and things got skeewed (still kinda like it). The second was done from the back of the room while sitting against a wall on the floor with peeps walking in front of me. It was done within thirty minutes (I'm kinda proud of what was managed in the chaos.)

    I really like your finesse Ted. These sketches look really nice and clean, but at the same time have a different mood. The paper looks really nice to use. Love your stuff.

    j a k e - Thanks jake.
    squall787 - Thanks for keeping an eye on my work. Sorry I don't update more.
    blanquish - Thanks. The paper that shows a hint of a watermark and is holding most of my recent posts is handmade. I bought it in Florence at a store called Il Papiro. They have another shop in Rome and I just spotted a smaller store while I was in New York (just got back last night). It's a great surface that allows a great range if you like to explore different techniques. It even endures some wet media. Apparently, it is made according to the standards of the court of Luigi XIII the King of France. I find it just has a nice surface that allows for smooth/soft blending and raised texture for more noise. Lately, I have been drawing at a larger scale on rag paper that is made for printing. Hopefully, I can post some of that soon. Hope everyone is well. Take care till whenever.

    mrpank-Thanks. Yeah, this one is way to polished to be a sketch in a sketchbook as some others may be. I'll try to get more into posting my discovery scratchings.

    Call0ps-Thanks. Here's more hair.

    TIO_MATT-Thank you.

    AlexC-Thanks man. I saw your sketchbook awhile back and your reply reminded me to look again. Great stuff. Loose and searching is what comes to mind...there are some similarities in your marks that I can identify with.

    This was done on rag paper with lead. The difference is that your pushing the pencil into a fabric-like surface instead of a stiff textured surface that pulls the medium from your tool edge. It gives a natural subject (like hair) more room to breath. There's more dimension and randomness for it. You can probably see how the different surface changes my handling of lines and light mid-tones.

    beautiful work ted, you captured something in here eyes that is very beautiful.

    I had a question about your rendering process, you mentiond it earlier but I couldn't find it, you said you used "washes" or graphite?
    Also thanks for the compliment in your reply above, means a lot from you, I have a lot of respect for you
    I am blown away from the hair on the last one, maybe some white highlights in chalk would look nice?
    thanks for sharing

    AlexC- Thanks so much for replying. Thanks for the compliment. Yeah, I would call it a "dry wash" with graphite. Not with graphite powder, but an even smearing (with a tissue or your sleeve) that puts a value over the entire sketch. It gives opportunity to explore those very high range mid-tones with a kneaded eraser or whatever. It softens the early lines that are used for your lay-in that may need to be restated a bit. Ultimately, it's a way to work as if your painting with slabs (but subtractive as your drawing with and eraser) instead of vigorously examining the planes with a pencils fine-point. It's more expressive and I think I am in love with the ghostly effects that result.

    I gotta throw this drawing in a frame, but figured it needed to be scanned first. I drove Kevin Llewellyn down to Laguna College so he could do a demo and I sat to the side and did this drawing from the model. Gonna be teaching down there in the fall, so I'm trying to participate as much as I can. It was cool to hang out with the model at bar afterward and have some beers and visit. She held an extremely still pose and has a really neat nose.

    wow, again outstanding job on the hair
    maybe a little grimace with the position of the eye being a bit far apart, but it doesnt subtract from a beautiful drawing.
    Keep posting!

    AlexC- Thanks again for replying. Yeah, that eye floated to far left...I left a floater. I forgot to respond to your suggestion of using some white on the post before last...I was tempted to go in an heighten it with some chalk, but I really like the idea that another artist might see the Charles Bargue (not exactly a bargue drawing) influence. I don't think that comes across as I wish it would, but I still like the idea. I'll check on your sketchbook after this post. Take care.

    motives- Thanks. Wow, I don't know if anyone has replied using the word "sensual."

    oalexis- Glad you like it. Thanks.

    I scanned this study, but I think I might take a digi pic and repost something with more accurate color. Ah, we'll see.
