    Share some of your favorite old master drawings

    These past few weeks I've been studying Robert Beverly Hale's "Drawing Lessons From The Great Masters". I've developed a real love for master drawings, not just for the instruction they provide or the behind the scenes look at a famous painting, but for their own unique simple beauty. I've been searching out more and have had some success. I found a nice selection from Raphael online from which I picked out my favorites. There's also a good sized book of drawings by Peter Paul Rubens that has lead me to really adore him. I'm particularly fond of sketchbook pages where you get to see an old master working things out, pages that don't look so different from my own sketchbook. Below is one of my favorites, one you probably know, a study by Michelangelo for the Libyan Sibyl of the Sistine Chapel ceiling.

    I'm hoping you guys will post some of your favorites too. I hope to one day have enough favorites collected to merit printing them out and making a book of them for my personal enjoyment.

    Yeah that Michelangelo is one of my favourites too. I had the chance to see it in real life once, and trust me, all his drawings are so much nicer to see in real life. They lose so much subtlety and little details when you view it online.

    Anyways, he's not an old master, but a master nonetheless. I've always like Robert Liberace, so here are a few of his drawings.

    The most recent issue of DRAW magazine has a feature on Liberace!

    oops, Draw magazine is Mike Manley's how-to mag for comics and animation! I mean DRAWING magazine, Spring 2011.
