    Classical drawings (No, these are not photos!!)

    Here's a collection of my classical drawings using charcoal and pencil. These were drawn from actual sculptures and not from black and white photos.

    Wow, you sure could have fooled me. Especially the two last ones looks like BW photographs. I guess it's the way you've caught the bounced light really well in your drawings. Make them look very realistic! Nice work.

    It's a long process to get drawings like these to this stage of refinement. For one thing it takes a lot of patience, to spend endless hours on one drawing, but in the end it was worth it.

    Whoa! Very neat and accurate tones!
    The most remarkable thing of all for me is the texture of the background in the last two. Great stuff.

    :EDIT: A typo. ^^;
    And sorry if I sounded technical.

    very nice, i find the pencil/charcole technique very hard to do, as the graphite pencil resist the charcole, making it hard to apply charcole to a graphite-loaded area of the paper. how ddi you achive this?

    great reflective light in these, awsome skillz!

    Wow! Very Impressive.

    I've actually never mixed Charcoal and Pencil.
    Could you give a little advice on how to start?

    They do look like close to photos. You are a highly skilled draftsman.

    Magnet head he says in the post he drew from the sculptures.

    Anyway the first one of Leda and the Swan, I really like the way you drew the feathers, and the last two are amazing.

    Yeah, these drawings were done by looking at actual sculptures without any photo aid, all from observation. Leda and the Swan and Satyr Children are actual sculptures from The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NY. And yes, I drew these two while in the museum's collection.
