Great work. I like the painterly quality of the paintings, but I love that crosshatching on the sketches. Beautiful.

Marian, Mane, Vineris: Thanks!
Andrew: Thanks, and good eye! It's hard to keep it all in perfect pitch when the head is less than 2 inches long haha. I'll keep an eye out for that next time!
Alternative: Thanks, there'll be some compositions coming soon!
So, in about a month's time, I'm heading back to LA. I'll be teaching "Long Pose Figure Drawing" at LAAFA this summer. Class starts in July and is on Mondays 10am to 3pm or 10am to 5.30pm (you can choose a 3 or 5 hr option). If you're in the LA area and hankering for some long poses, check it out!

No problem Cory, glad you like it!
Here's a foot rendering demo I did for my students. This was specifically to show how different materials are useful for different parts of the rendering process. 2b charcoal for the main masses and lay-in, color giant pencil for the main modeling and sharp colerase for the finishing.

Here's a detail of a demo in progress for my Monday class at LAAFA. The drawing on the right is a direct study of our wonderful model, Mark Snyder. The drawing on the right is an anatomical breakdown of the pose, to show students how the skeleton affects the surface forms we see on the model.
This is from day 2 of a 4-day pose, next week I'll work some more on the drawing of Mark, developing more areas and using white chalk for the highlight. I'll also draw another diagram to show students how the muscles interact with the skeleton.
I'll be teaching this class again on Thursdays this Fall. The class is offered as a 3-hr or 5-hr class. If you're in LA and are looking for a long pose figure class, come join us!

Hi Ramon, sadly I am a long way from LA, here in the UK, so unable to attend your demo's. I do appreciate your posts though as they are great to study from. So useful to see how the skeleton fits.
I have been learning about unified shadow shapes today as I am lucky enough to be attending a workshop with Henry Yan, he is visiting the UK, teaching his direct drawing techniques, so I now have a slightly better understanding of what you are looking at and rendering in this stage of your drawing. I hope you get the chance to post the next stages, especially the muscles on the skeleton.

Here's some work from this week. When I do quick sketch nowadays, I try to arrange the figures into a coherent composition. In this case, I opted for pyramidal structure with a circular rhythm to guide the eye through.
Once you get comfortable drawing figures in a 5 or 7 minute interval, it's fun to up the ante and begin composing them. It's an extremely fun way to work, since you are drawing in a timed setting and never know what the model's next pose will be. This is a also a great way to practice staging for multi-figure scenes.

Why does the model's head sit strangely upon his neck, almost disconnected.
