    There's no way in hell you made those that fast.

    That's it. I'm going to have to kill all you guys and steal your talent from your souls! MWAHAHAHA

    Seriously though, these are sweet. I'm taking a Life Drawing class myself, and I have neither the control over charcoal, technique, or skill to pump out that kind of stuff that quickly.

    Wow, thanks for posting these, they're really great. Really makes me anxious to take some classes at Watts. I'm planning on moving out there after I finish my BFA in June but I want to go now. I've been waiting long enough. Well thanks for sharing and I look forward to taking classes with you when I get out there.

    Jose-Society of illustrators is like the U.N. its nuetral soil, not technically east coast. No just kidding, I love the east coast, I am just so happy to be teaching at Watts that I can't imagine going anywhere else to teach. Plus my wife hates the cold. Though I am hoping to make a trip out there in the next year to checkout the Met again, and go down to PA to see all the museums down there.
    And as far as being in Art Out Loud, that is very, very flattering

    Jedmo-I look forward to it

    Mat-Those are for my own private use

    tiny-oh, I know whats good for me!!!

    How many models do you have at your disposal? Our college just as a middle aged female <.< we need a male one too I think.

    The 2 hour one, did the guy actually sit there for 2 hours straight?

    If I had to guess I would say 15-20 different models, but we use mainly 10 of them, and no he would sit for 20 and take a 5-7 min break.

    You just poked my eye out with those drawings! Damn...
    The values in those life drawings are great! I'm trying hard to get a good flow like this in my life drawings. I've been so hung up on comics I lost focus on whats important. I will study your drawings if its ok?
    Great stuff. Truly inspiering!

    Ahhh. How much I love charcoal, nothing is better than this medium for me. I just adore those deep, exciting, appetitive shadows it produces. Soft and straightforward to the most in the same time. Such a agreeable and expressive tool.
    Hello, E.M.GIST, the same kind of excitement I went through when I read your advice for me in my thread. Very thoughtful and given in such a clear comprehensible form. I appreciate it very much and very, very grateful. Thank you so much.
    You have very rich style. so many gradations of black and grey. Maybe that's why I like the charcoal drawings so much, they depict life in all its richness. Your drawings are bold and velvety soft in the same time. Sharp, loose manner is balanced with soft shadows. Striking mix. Very straightforward and smoothing in the same time.
    My favorites are

    http://erikgist.com/images/forum/figdemo2.jpg I like the soft play of light in this drawing, how you show sweet friendly nature of the model and all this feeling of current spontaneous moment. Lovely piece.

    http://erikgist.com/images/forum/figdemo3.jpg very interesting in contrast to previous one. the girl was draw in in much lighter gentle manner, the man is much rougher. The first one was playful and lighthearted, this one has pondering mood.

    http://erikgist.com/images/forum/figdemo4.jpg dreamy girl and kind of time stopping effect in this piece, And it's kind of strange considering those fast dynamic strokes.

    http://erikgist.com/images/forum/figdemo4.jpg Wonderful softness and dynamics in this drawing. My eyes just following all these wonderful folds and twists of the fabric. Very soothing too.

    http://erikgist.com/images/forum/fig2.jpg Volume is very enjoyable

    http://erikgist.com/images/forum/headdemo3.jpg I could guess the personality of this person from your drawing. I think she is very patient and calm person. Didn't lose her integrity through all her life. Probably has a very nice, quiet manner to talk and interact with people. Doesn't talk much. Introvert. I might be hugely wrong .
    So thank you so much for sharing your art with me. Hope to see more and more.

    ...absolutely love these, thank you for sharing. I was gonna ask a few questions, but they have already been answered; also, the life drawing demo/tut in the other thread is very informative. Its always good for the brain to read up on methods for life drawing. One day I hope to pop over to Watts and draw with you guys; the technique taught is highly desirable and a beautiful style...(also, I know its nice and warm over there...)
