    Ahh the days of the wooden horse, you, your sketch pad, a piece of charcoal, and a naked person to stare at for hours on end. Well man all I have to say is that you are really fortunate cause our models sucked ass and we were hard pressed to get a decent pose out of them. Where do you go for class? Look forward to seeing more of your work.

    Amazing work.

    What size paper are you working on, is it quite fine or porus(sp)?

    What type of charcoal are you using, it appears very smooth and light.

    Lukias: Thanks! See details on my materials up above, though these are done on newsprint. It started seeming expensive to do 40 30-second poses on sketch paper.

    I'm starting to get anxious to start painting some of these portraits. But I love the short stuff:

    Wow these are great. I love gesture drawings because they have so much life in their spontaneity. Great linework and in your 2nd to last post with the fellow, you capture a great sense of mood. keep going.

    For my own sake, a few recent drawings and one of my first gouache paintings from portraiture class. Anybody know a good gouache tutorial?

    I just love figure drawings and I really love ones that are well done. So need less to say you have made me happy.
    What is lacking in structure is more than made up for in exspressiveness. With a little more concideration for form your drawings will be taken to the next level.

    Keep up the great work. I can't wait to see some more.

    Thanks for the comment and advice, Koryh. Construction is my big issue these days. I'm working on it!

    Most of my drawings use some gesture, contour and tone. They may look blind, but only because they are done quickly (30 seconds for many) and because of my somewhat poor construction.

    Thanks for the comments. I showed up for portraiture class today but there was no class on account of Veteran's Day (in the US).
