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.

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.
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.
