    Awesome studies man! Great start of the sketchbook, don't really know what to critique, nothing in general I see that is wrong. Most of it looks good. Maybe some more training on faces? Anyways, looking forward to seeing more

    Thanks - I will keep studying faces from life as well as construction methods.

    I really love the look of white highlights on toned paper And I'm especially jealous of your wonderful feet, I always found those so hard to grasp, moreso than hands even.

    That's what a noticed right off the bat as well. It has a very earthy natural look to it that I think really helps make the highlights that much more visible.

    Your work has a great flow to it, I appreciate your attention to detail with light.

    Thanks, for the comment. Actually I'm learning to use the white chalk a little more sparingly.

    My Sketchbook is completely from memory/imagination - I draw those feet after many life drawing lessons.

    Drawing from life helps you know things by their shape.

    Thank you so much for the feed back - it means a lot to me.

    I really need to work on my own pelvises. It's funny, you think you know something until you learn something new where you realize that you don't really know anything. Life is wonderful that way!

    I am very impressed by your figures. Some of them seem a bit stiff, however, in the spine area. Don't completely destroy your box idea, but draw more fluidly, more organic shapes.

    I think you should study shoulders and faces in 3/4 some more, particularly noses. In the end, all you really need to get down as far as this goes is how to draw basic shapes at more advanced angles, and your shoulders and faces should improve dramatically.

    Great stuff! I love your pencil work. I look forward to seeing more!
