    Atelier Figure drawing

    It's been a few months since I've posted here. I've been busy with a few things. I ended up moving to San Francisco back in August. Since then, I've been attending the evening figure drawing classes at atelier. I just finished my third month with them and I wanted to share what I have so far. This program has provided me with a much needed kick in the ass. Crits are welcome.

    These look great to me. Especially the faces on the last 2. How long per pose on these? Are they instructed classes?

    Thanks.

    Each pose is 24 hours broken up into eight sessions per month. The classes are instructed.

    Beautiful, clean and honest: you're a very refined academist, if I was anyone to tell you. Just a sugestion for sources: I don't know if you're familiar with the work of Saturnino Herran; you may find his work inspiring, as he (althought under the influence of modernism/secession/symbolism ways) serves freely from his master academical skills to render highly poetic renditions of the human situation.

    Beautiful!

    How do you render those smoothly shaded areas? Is it good to let your pencil get dull and use the side? I find it difficult.

    Thanks. Actually, I keep my pencil pretty sharp. I go back and forth between a 2mm led holder and a 0.03mm mechanical pencil. Value control and being able to render subtle turns is emphasized heavily in atelier drawing. That means spending a lot of time filling in cracks and keeping an eraser handy to knock back stray marks and places where my hand was too heavy.

    Month 4. This drawing was three sessions shy of the others due to the holiday.

    How do you keep your lead sharp?

    I either use a .03 mechanical pencil, which does not need to be sharpened, or I keep a lead pointer handy when using the 2mm lead holder.

    I don't use traditional wooden pecils much but when I do, I use sharpener and exacto knife to keep a thin, long section of lead exposed and needle-sharp. I'm usually too lazy to do this though.
