I love the quicksketches! They are so energetic, with beautifully placed confident looking lines. I have to say, the longer studies are rather a dissappointment after your sketches, though. Your rendering in both paint and pencil mediums just doesnt do justice. Perhaps doing some looooong studies such as master copies or barque cast drawing copies would help you to learn some more effective rendering. I would suggest picking something in a pencil medium that is very smooth/realistically rendered and then spending at least 10 hours (some people spend 40, even 80 hours!) carefully trying to reproduce the shading technique. I know, it's BORING as hell - and not even from life! But, you seem to have such a good sense for proportion, gesture and likeness, I wish it came through in the longer works as well. You can learn rendering working on your own from a model as well, but it can be harder because of time constraints. By doing a few copies, you have the opportunity to study how someone else has solved shading problems without worry about how long the pose is- then, of course, you try to apply it to your own life studies.

In fact, Long pose is waht I am trying to do right now.
In school, it is designed for the animation so
they only teach quick sketch.
Recently, I try to do 20 mminutes ~ 3 hours poses.
If I get sometime new, I will post them!

My recent quick sketch. I try to draw as few strokes as possible.
Most of them are 1~2 minutes poses.
The second one is 5 minutes
Hope you like it~
Thanks for viewing.

Man I'm glad I found this thread. This is some really great figure work. I love how you've got such a variety of times periods for your sketches. It's great to see how the pieces are developed under different contraints, really inspirational. My favourite stuff is the quick 1-3 minutes drawings most recently. It's something I don't do enough so its great to see it being executed so well. I hope I'm as good in 2 years time (just started life drawing).
Your oil painting is very good, only your third?! Wow, great stuff. My only crit would be what has been said already about the fleshtones. There's a lot of different colours in skin that is dependant on different situations the body is in. But I'm sure you've sorted that out already! Great stuff, and good luck to you, keep it up!
Pencils before Pixels....in theory..

You're holding out!
It is fun to see what you end up posting at the end of a session. I enjoyed your drawings of the dancers.
How about posting that 20 minute drawing of Leah, the one I pinned up on the crit board and wept over.
Not bad for two years drawing. Now there is an understatement!
See you next quarter in the life drawing sessions, and drag the rest of those AIS grads from work. It's been a while since they've dropped in.

Nice to meet you here.
How is everything?
I didn't take picture of that 20 minutes pose.
When I get chance to do it, I will post that one.
I will try to gather people here and
go back to do life drawing next quarter.
