    Some quick life sketches

    Here are a bunch of life sketches. These are some drawings from a class I took about a year ago at the Mass College of art...a bit of refresher. The instructor had a radically different approach to figure drawing than I had been exposed to. He had a "structual diagram" for the body and would lay it in first to get the proper reference points and "connections". the Jill and Tim drawings are representative.

    ...The Peg drawings are from Pre-Class...They use negative/positive space and show my method of scribbling to acheive benchmarks and gesture, then establishing more assertive lines over the "layouts".

    It was good to get a different perspective! criticism is always welcome, and pictures speak louder...

    I like the style of your sketches - can you post more information on the "structural diagram" your instructor teached?

    i love peg2, i think some of the legs are a bit thin in some, might be something you want to watch in the future.

    I'll see if I can dig out the diagram I redrew from his live demo.

    Sure...his diagram was based on basic structure, which is comprised of muscles, tendons and skeleton.

    looks good Dave, the rendered ones are very nice. i agree about the skinny legs tho.
    other than that i can see you have a good sence of form.
