    This is insane work here. I mean, if I had that opportunity to study with Whitaker, then I'd be there all day and night drawing. No sleep. You've seem to really capture the entire painting from the Girl face portrait study, which is btw some nice use of graphite, to your last study. I just don't have the discipline yet, but I'll gain on ya...promise.

    Keep at it

    Whoa sweet Emily!! You'll be teaching workshops in no time. haha.

    the only thing that kind of bugs me, and this is a very small thing mind you, is the line that represents her neck, the lines seems to abruptly end at the pit of the neck. keep in mind I'm no master artist like you, so don't mind me.. haha

    Hello Emily, great work.

    What kind of paper(s) are you using? I like the finish on some of these. Not overly coarse, but not plate smooth either is what I'm looking for, archival also. I mostly use Conte pencil (black), black Col Erase, black or earth red Prismalcolor, or black or sanquine chalk sticks (Cretacolor, Pitt, General's), sharpened of course. Most papers are very unsatisfactory, either too rough and grainy (pretty much every charcoal paper and pad paper) or smooth but very chinzy (newsprint, bond). Also, I usually work no larger than 11 x 14 (Old Master influence), so the ability to lay down fine strokes is important.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    P.S. I do know of one very fine manufacturer of paper:

    Wow Emily,

    I am really impressed by all I see here. This is really great work, very inspiring.

    Also thanks for being there to answer all my odd questions and drawing together, you and Tom have been most helpful. I look forward to our next drawing session, and maybe more salsa.

    Thanks,

    Awesome job on your recent portraits.. I definitely like the softer feel of the second one. The value design seems stronger as well when compared to the first portrait. Keep up the great work!

    Stark--thank you so much. Looking forward to it.
    Skeiff--thanks, yeah that's a hard area to capture nicely.
    ArtznCraphs--the paper I have been using up to this point has been Strathmore Bristol (vellum finish, not smooth). I have an 11x14 pad. I like it because it has some texture, but not too much.
    OldNoobie--thank you!
    AmontilladoAg--thanks.
    Qxzi--thanks. I think that one took me 2 weeks, 3 days per week.
    timpaatkins--thanks for stopping by Tim!
    inpho--hey, nice to see you here! Glad you are enjoying the figure drawing sessions.
    nethus--thank you very much.
    reidaj--thanks, I'm glad you think so. I did a quick value study on tracing paper before transferring it to the nicer paper.

    Ok, here's a new one. This is nupastel again on a slightly smoother paper.

    Once again you capture that gaze perfectly. The way he's looking and the tones you placed in there are flawless and too cool. Keep at it!

    nice rendering and tones but I agree with Idiot Apathy, his right eye (our left) looks a little bit off, though I am in need for a new prescription for my glasses so I might be not seeing it correctly

    I keep coming back to that most recent portrait, and staring...and staring
    Just...beautiful!
    people who crit the figure's right eye as off, could you be more specific? I'm not challenging you, I just want to understand. I keep trying to see the flaw, and I don't.
    I will say the beard loses form. The light that shines on the nose will also hit the beard and creat a pattern of lights and darks.
    This ogling session I was especially enjoying the subtlety of the shadow of the upper eyelid on the right eye and the shadow of the few stray hairs of the moustache on the lip.
    As I said in the thread which must not be named, I envy and admire you.

    bakatron--thank you!
    Atlantis--hehe, thank you very much!
    nonie--thanks, nonie. Yes, I will be doing cast drawing at some point soon.
    Stark--thanks so much.
    Idiot Apathy--This is another student who works with Bill. I think I can see what you're saying about the eye--something about the curve of the eyelid possibly.
    OldNoobie--thanks, and yeah.
    panchosimpson--oh, thanks so much! So glad to hear you mention Sargent's work.
    Bushido--thank you!
    Cory Hinman--thank you, that's so nice of you. About the eye, it may be the way the eyelids are formed that is giving the impression. I understand your point about the beard. My first inclination is to approach it with a lot of detail and modeling, but I am instead trying a way of simplifying things as masses.

    Ok, here is another portrait of the same person, done on a rough watercolor paper. I think this is one of my favorites so far, but sadly this guy has cut off his beard! NoooOOoooO!

    Fantastic! These actually make me want to draw with something other than a wacom. I need some dirty fingernails.

    Your on quite a roll of late Emily! Really like this last one, the texture of his beard just melts on my eyes- good work with those subtle value relationships and soft edges.

    Your decision to keep it simple in the beard was right on target. The larger, more general masses in the darks keeps the viewer focused on the finer modeling in the halftones, which in this case would be the model's engaging expression.

    Your last two posts are from photographs right? You've done a good job in these last two drawings of looking beyond the limitations of photos to produce drawings that feel as if they've been done straight from the model, and thats not easy to do.

    Damn Emily, this one's really striking! I like how you captured the seriousness of the model with the soft touch. There's a cool interrelated dynamic here. Too bad he cut his beard off. It'd be funny if you did another portrait of him in the same position sans beard. Cheers!
