    AztcFireflower's Figures 'n' Stuff

    Hello CA folks,

    This is my first thread here on CA. Welcome to these pages and thanks for taking the time to stop in. Comments and constructive crits are always welcome, so please, feel free to post.

    Have needed a motivation to keep up my studies. The first few posts will be of older figure work as I will try and create a history of my work and progress. Because concept art is my destination, particularly creature/character design, I will begin to add my explorations as I improve my handling of oil as well as digital painting. Last thing I wish to do is bore the heck outta anyone that comes to visit my SB. I will try and remain considerate of your sensibilities, and post only my better work.

    Thanks again for visiting.

    These figures are each about 20 to 45 min.

    This 1st one's so I can change the thumbnail occasionally.

    Thanks Olle Werme, Wakkawa for your very nice comments.
    Truy appreciate you taking a look at my sketches.

    The first is a longer study, about 10 hours.
    The rest are 2-5 hour studies.

    Hi Jzeltman

    Thank's for stopping by,

    Actually I use charcoal pencils. I use many types and kinds, Ritmo's Art Alternatives, Primos, Generals, but I'm used to charcoal pencils with a relatively sharp point. Don't use graphite much for value studies because I can't get the depth of tone possible with charcoal.

    Great stuff - both the quick 5 minute ones and the long poses are great...makes me long for the days when I had figure drawing class...

    Keep up the good work!

    maddhatter106 Thank you. This is one reason for the thread. This point in life I need motivation to be consistent with my studies. Being part of a larger community is also a nice thing.
    Q-Caddlewick Thank you for the welcome. I definately plan on keeping this thread alive.

    These are incredible. Your shading is exquisite and a love the flow of your figures. Makes me feel the need to do some more figure drawing myself, It's been awhile. Keep up the great work, I'll be checkign back again!

    More Portraits

    Here's a couple more head studies.
    The first was done in Mark Westermoes Associates in Arts school.
    The second at LAAFA in one of my favorite teacher's drawing class; Sean Cheetham.
