cant wait to see what you do with the girl with the funky knees. new commission piece looks nice, but the bottom of the window doesnt look as realistic as the rest...im sure you know that though, just making sure. g'luck with finishing it. i really like the way you do hair. latest young girl portrait is killer; love the hands, great job. thx for the brushes dude; soooo money. take care, dude.
Draw - Thx man. I really appreciate it! I'm enjoying the kid studies as well. They have funky noses.
purb36 - Thanks! Glad to have the crits and the compliments. Also, I'm glad to hear you like the brushes!
I used to try and keep the paper very light, but I couldn't help myself today. I'll have to rescan at some point since there's a big fat scan line reflection going across this. I don't think I have the charcoal out of my system yet. I might do another one tomorrow.

Ive allways been a fan, especially of the medical and study stuff. These last portraits are awesome though, i wouldn't mind seeing some more highlights in them, but im not sure what your planning with them.
I love your work. The favorites are an oil painting of a nude girl, drawings from a zoo, 'Golden locks', sketches of birds, the drawing of some girl with short haircut, children. I might add just one thing. I wish some of your work would have been a little more spontanious, impulsive. But it's beautiful anyway, no doubt. By the way, the oil painting of the nude girl is spontanious enough for me .
