Finished painting plus sneak peak of a new one--update 7-3-10
Ok, a couple of people at the sf workshop were getting on my case because I don't post much artwork.
So I'll try to post a few things here. Hopefully I can keep adding to it.
I did this a couple of weeks ago.
Nupastel on coldpress watercolor paper.
People seemed to like this drawing from my portfolio.
Nupastel on newsprint.
This is an old image that I did when I was in school.
I had it kicking around so I threw it in my portfolio--mostly for myself so I could think about the differences between the way I drew then and the way I draw now.
Nupastel on vellum.
I think back then, I could give the appearance of good structure, but I wasn't really thinking about it.
I was just drawing what was in front of me.
Now, I'm really interested in structure and often prefer my structural drawings over my more rendered stuff.

Cool stuff. They have a nice feeling of "weight" to them. Your rendering is way better than mine so I can't crit that - the last guy there has really nice values IMO.
For some reason the first woman's stomach looks more like cloth than folds of flesh, I can't really figure out why ... maybe it's just my screwed up brain
Keep it up!
PS. Were you one of the 14 who had dinner at that crazy Chinese restaurant with the rotating table, the night before the workshop? I think I was sitting a couple of people left of you.

cool civilwar soldier. The lower half of the face and the cloth is very nice.
I remember watching over your should while you were doing some life drawing. Then you left. Ron walked over, picked up Foster's sketchbook and after finishing looking at it, saw your spot open, shrugged and sat down and started drawing.
Hope to see more soon.

coolness. I've often wondered what your art looked like.
Enjoyed the creativity of your mind in the lounge discussions for long enough to be interested in the creativity in your art!
keep it regular!
Encouragement keeps me swimming , even in the undertow of disappointment.

all your figure studies were impressive. Good stuff with the nupastel! I like the linear approach.

Wow, those two little random life sketches certainly show off your knowledge of the human form. Gorgeous stuff! Hehe, the canvas texture on the little dragon makes it almost look like a needlepoint or something. Cute.

Glad to see you still updating. I ran across this thread a while ago, really enjoyed your figure drawings!
It appears that you are still working hard on those, and doing very well at the, might I add!
I agree with fukifino, ''those two little random life sketches certainly show off your knowledge of the human form.''
Awesome updates since my last visit! I'm looking forward to some more!

These are wonderful; there's so much weight, expression, and motion. With the thought and care that you put in your commentary (open, intelligent discourse in the lounge and upbeat honesty in your crits), I have been almost desperate to see some of your work. I was, in fact getting ready to pm you with a request. Thank you for posting these, they are quite inspiring.
Wow, I sure sound like a suck-up (hopefully it will contrast with my normal smack-down, adding weight).

Oh my goodness, can't believe I haven't replied after that last update! Those life sketches are awesome, and that dragon couldn't possibly get any cuter.
