    Great update dude.
    Nice lines as usual.
    Just a question, for the life drawing, is it experience or do you do (or have done) a particular exercice to have the proportions accurate ?
    Keep pushing !!

    Gnoll: Thanks. Yeah the head part bothers everyone. I actually liked it, but talked to the director of the the Industrial Design department at my school, and he was kind enough to tell me the head doesn't share the same design language. I gave me a draw over, so I'll fix it in a week or so. For the rendering, I have to practice more.

    DanielC. Thanks man. For life drawing, for longer poses, when I'm paying attention to proportion more than gesture, I use shadow shapes and the relationships of shapes to get the proportions. It's alot of practice, but that's why I draw in straight lines alot. It's easier to gauge a shape's size and relation to another shape when it's form is distinct (at least for me). It's mostly direct drawing, so no under drawing, forcing me to look at positive and negative shapes. I have a dialouge going in my head when I draw from life "what's that shape? How far and where does it line up to another shape? What's the shape of the negative space between the two?" Use a pen, or hide your eraser, and it makes you really analyze something before you put it down.

    This will probably help too. This man basically taught me how to draw. Henry Yan is one of the most amazing artists I have seen, and had the honor to have been taught by. He doesn't know it, but he's my mentor and one of my biggest influences and inspirations. He still teases me about the fact that I draw monsters and "ugly" things in my sketchbook, but then turns around to tell me I don't have enough guts dripping out of some monster. I highly encourage you to check out his book, which basically outlines his figure drawing class.

    http://www.amazon.com/Henry-Yans-Fig...3164943&sr=8-1

    Here's some life drawings from the past week (maybe I should have posted these in the life studies section?). The first two were quickstudies, 1 and 5 minutes (? I just draw and wait for the model's timer to beep) and the rest are 10's and 20's. I'm practicing drawing overhand (hard when I'm so used to drawing with a pen) and on a large pad (also harder to get proportions). The last two were my favorites. Thanks for stopping by.

    Really nice works.... brilliant.
    One thing interests me that is about Henry Yan and his book you mentioned. I was curious for quite a long time about how you shade your sketches in overlay strokes skill so tidily. Maybe was that come from your teacher? or it just came out from your genuine talent, I don't know. Yet one thing I know that is having been taught by a master is always a honor, and so that will always create another great artist as you are.

    Keep updating!!
    It should always be bore in one's mind that he must be responsible for his life........

    love your latest life drawing, especially the rendering on the latter ones...hope im not getting you to repeat yourself, but what medium are you using for your mark making? the shade quality your getting in there is really delicate - is it just simple coloured chalk?

    yeah word on the softer looking figures. i think changing medium can be really refreshing. especially when going back to the 'usual' stuff again. so yeah great to see you mixing it up while keeping that sweet solid/looseness mix.

    Gorgeous work here! I am so jealous. That Henry Yan book is great. I bought it directly from him when I was in SF for the last Insomania workshop. I should have had him sign it for me. You guys are soo lucky to have such a high concentration of awesome artists around you. I really am jealous
