OBX, thanks for the vote of confidence, I do love to draw without reference, but always get to a point where I don't know how to take it further, I gotta work on that !
Heroic, uh, what can I say ... tiny update it shall be once more (hangs head in shame). I do draw, just don't update ... for the record .
no ref on these, and I think I like how they came out. Drawn after lotsa heads from ref and Nicolaides gesture excercises. Now I gotta do moooooore.
