    f1x Thank you. I LOVE Liepke's work. Colors are so lush, brushwork is so juicy. I'm familiar with L Freud. Also employs strong brushwork. Currently looking at
    marowak Thank you! It is consistency. A certain dedication WILL get you there. But, it's all a process. Once learned, whichever approach you start with, you practice and refine.
    GEB Thank you for visiting!
    BludHund Why thank you!
    finndahl GLad you enjoyed looking thru!
    Artimatum Appreciate your checking these pages out.

    Concentrating on design as I refine my skills in quick-sketch. Have always loved the freshness of short poses. There is pressure because of little time, but, you're also allowed to focus on one concept, one area, with no penalty because you didn't "finish". Not expected to.
    Actually, It's pretty freeing!
    I continue to study value in the context of composition.
    Mean-time, trying to resolve several issues in my digital skills, while maintaining my quick sketch ones. :]

    These are 3 - 10 minutes sets.

    Beautiful as always. How about some pastels? Don't let the learning curve
    of digital distract from the process of learning color and the painterly approach.

    Hi Bludhund,
    Funny, I was just thinkin' where did I stash my box of Rembrandts and Giraults.
    It will require turning new gears when I get to play with them, sometime.


    Some 5 minutes or so....

    Hey AztcFireFlower, may I ask you a quick question:

    Work like this is so accurate, but it was only 10 mins which is hardly any time to observe http://img651.imageshack.us/img651/3...l10mincopy.jpg

    .. were you able to get to this level by practising your accuracy and speed came with time or were you doing lots of fast drawings and accuracy came in time?

    DefiledVisions Thank you!
    GEB Thank you!
    Yefim Kool stuff on your blog. Thanks for dropping in!

    Hey Whirly,

    I posted this in your thread, but will repeat here. Everyone has a start somewhere. Persistence and consistence is key to acquiring any skill. Mastery is the application of the concepts you learned - what's called mileage.
    Don't knock your work. Each one provides a lesson, good or bad. I don't know if you've heard this one before - There are no failures, just experiences. I see design kernels in your doodles. As you absorb more, you're understanding increases and your drawings will change. Part of your study process is analysis, which I see you are making an effort at. Think: What is it that you like about this drawing/sketch?
    Trying to reproduce that in your own forces you to deconstruct a bit which is the basis of understanding an approach or even style.

    My suggestion and to answer your question: Understand construction, learn proportions of the body, memorize them. When you are faced with a live model, part of your battle will be won. Accuracy stems from knowing the parameters of the figure. Some of the ideas and approaches are abstract as well as observational. They both contribute in very important ways and are synergistic together.
    Speed is secondary. Understanding the basics and working out your drawing issues is priority.

    Thumbs up

    Ma'am, that last post looks like a foot. A foot that kicks backsides.

    Thank you for the reminders/motivation! (And the great fig drawings too)

    Aye, them be true words.

    "Funny, I was just thinkin' where did I stash my box of Rembrandts and Giraults.
    It will require turning new gears when I get to play with them, sometime."

    so...the some time is now! Oil up those gears and shake off the rust

    I love this:



    Glorious!

    Your latest set of 5 - 10 mins gestures are a joy to look at. As are your portraits

    Lovely light observation.

    Thanks Whirly :]
    Dayle, Thank you. Many people don't like drawing the back, may because there are less landmarks on the surface. Me, I prefer it to the front.
    Chompi'n Thank you. I use several pencil grades, all charcoal, tho.
    Without having seen your work, I'd say, learn basic proportions of the human figure and head. NO matter how well one can depict the muscle, render beautiful lighting, it falls apart as a final if one's proportions AND basic (I mean super, really basic - but still important) perspective are off. Learn these foundations well and they'll become a strong jumping off point to play with.

    This is one study in Steve Huston's workshop this week. One of my favorite teachers.
    Taking time to analyze how forms lay in front of each other was a good exercise. One key: Take your time to get it, whatever you're learning. Rushing to place all details and finish the whole figure is counter-productive. Rarely looks good and your goal becomes to finish the figure rather than study the figure in the end. Do what you can even if you don't finish. But, make what you do put down a strong study. :]

    Haven't posted in awhile, so will start with a few quick-sketches. My life situation has given me a small breather to direct my energy back to my studies and art advancement.
    I will answer questions in next post but wanted to start the year with a few newer images. Have more to post in next coming weeks. LOVE the batch uploader!!!!!!!

    your drawings and mr.orbik's really made me change into that direction. now i'm looking at your thread every time before i go life drawing, thanks so much. i should really print them out into a mini aztechfireflower bible.

    really like the little punch lines your have (short, dark, powerful resolutors/initiators). this is very vague, but do you add them in at the end, or work them in along with the rest of the drawing?

    bill618, wutangclam, bharat, soufedj, ezekrialase Thank you. :]
    guanto Thank you. I'm always needing to keep the hand and brain in practice. I will slip if I get lazy.
    As I analyze the model I put down the gesture and mass lay-in, then fill it out with value pattern and last is accents, light or dark.
    Yefim, Thank you. I teach at Kline Academy in West Los Angeles. The workshops are 4 week sessions with a couple of weeks break. Here's the current announcement:
