I find conté tu be especially unforgiving on white paper. Very inspiring stuff Gist!
Masterful, gestural, delish! Thank you for sharing your skills! These are a real treat to behold.

Hey-Im adding this page to my favorites-im going to come back later and study after on these-if you dont mind. its absolutly amazing stuff! Im too young and live in too small of a community to have a good life drawing class. and my g/f mom wouldnt be happy if i ever got caught drawing her daughter! ha! just wanted to tell you-that this work is very inspiring!
thanks for sharing

Idiot Apathy- Thank you very much, the piece I got in is the cover for "To Sleep With Evil"
Torgovix- Very flattering, but I doubt that
DecktillDawn- Jeremy right? I was checking out your thread, very impressive stuff!
drd- More or less that is true, I will also use the "blade" of the pencil for line work. To clarify for broad strokes I use it like I am spreading butter on toast, for line work more like I am cutting a steak, and for details more like pushing a sowing needle through cloth. For all three I hold it underhand, more like a sword than a tradition pencil
patdzon- always great to hear from you
Pencilator- Thanks and for those that care this is the piece that got into spectrum
Erik, this stuff looks awesome. Bold, punchy, strong. I love it man. Definitely less "Jeff" and more "you." Awesome. Glad I randomly logged on here, lol. -kyle
i have to agree with torgovix
that's the greatest way i've ever heard anybody describe underhand drawing. great for kids imaginations :More or less that is true, I will also use the "blade" of the pencil for line work.

when drawing this way, i always have trouble on the core shadow. specially like on your anatomy studies what type of strokes do you use for it?
Always a treat to see your stuff E.M.Gist ! Awesome as usual! Thanks for sharing this and congrats on S14! Cheers.
