    Thank you for the inspiration man, really. That's made me pushing myself more, especially when I saw how quickly you've modeled the shapes and blocked in all proportions. What for you takes minutes for me takes hours. Keep going. Wish best of everything for you :-).

    WOW!!

    I was wondering though, if you get to that stage do you get over it and do conceptart or do you get kinda stuck drawing beutifull anatomy forever?

    hemP- Looking forward to having you, when do you get in town?

    MurdokX- If I understand the question, yes. In case I don't I first look for the long simple flowing gesture lines (line of action, movement between forms, etc) then I map in any substantial structure and foreshortening (mannequinizing) then I block in shadows, thinking in terms of simple planes. Lastly I reinforce the contour where I feel it is good to do so.

    hemP- We will have to set up a BBQ or sketch night so you can meet some of the folks. I don't know anyone at the moment, but there are a few new people moving in to town that might be good.

    'ej- I have done both before, but most often with the lines of the body. Perhaps I will have to put together a little tutorial.

    These are great studies, i loved how you used the different shading tones. the 5min ones were expecially good.
