Yet again I am awed by your handling of the figure. Would you say that the best way to learn to draw the figure is hours of work from direct observation? (dumb question I know, but I just want to hear you say it.)
You mentioned using geometric shapes to set up the figure when working from reference. Are you saying that initally look at it as flat, then develop the perspective when you have the pose correct?
A little crit, that may be wrong as I didn't can't see the reference, but...
For the first of the two-hour poses, her head looks a bit to large compared with the rest of her body.
Wow that's the first time I've ever seen you make a proportional mistake, and it might not even be a mistake. Thats pretty darn amazing. It's a shame you don't post more often, you inspire us all.
Stunning - great work - LOVE YOUR MUSCLE Shading (even on the basic form quick sketches - it's almost spooky!)
You have some great talent here - You make me want to stay up all night and draw to get better - Awesome!
Haven't been able to go to quick sketch lately... how are you doing? i finished taking some classes at gnomon--sculpture, character design, etc.
i just got permission to take 2 months off of work to do some independent study/portfolio develpoment with mike butkis, and i'll be taking nathan's class at laafa starting in july. been over to watkiss' house once too. adi is back from italy, and i met up with her and jackie not too long ago.
a few people i know might be getting together on the weekends to draw occasionally, and i've heard of a few underground-type things during the week. anyway, keep up the good work and drop me a line at my gmail account sometime.
Very nice quick sketches. Unlike a lot of people you approach quick sketches with the proper mindset: What specific information am I going to record from the model in the limited time I have? I know myself if I don't approach it this way my results will be haphazard and tentative. I also tend to get caught up in minutia with any poses less than 5 minutes, when I don't have a plan in mind
You are an inspiration. Thank you for that
Your drawings are really one of the things that made me start going to life drawing sessions. Also they are a standard to strive to achieve.
Keep having fun and showing us good stuff
