    Sorry but I have to respectfully disagree with this one. Some of the best draftsmen that ever walked the earth worked very 'cleanly' if you will. None of them suffered from looking 'less organic', and I can't say that any of Mr Nethus's work looks that way, either. Browse through the plates on this page for some examples of very clean work - http://www.gutenberg.org/files/14264...-h/14264-h.htm

    (btw Nethus, your work reminds me very much of some of these. I really like your latest portrait! Keep it up.)

    Fantastic studies. I especially like the beautiful figure drawing of the woman's back. Excellent cross hatching...and while there's an intense amount of detail in those pencil drawings, I can't help but think it'd be neat to see it with more range of tonal value. Are you limited to just using HB pencils with these, or something?

    sketcheth: thanks man.. Increasing my tonal range is something I'm going to try and work on.. Not limited to HB's as such, but it is recommended.

    New term.. wew.. I've started a life drawing class that is just quick poses all day and it's good fun.

    The scan absolutely rooted this but I'll show it anyway.. It seems to have scanned all the pics pretty badly actually.. sigh
    I'll probably spend another day on this pic too. two and a bit days on this so far

    Thanks newbs.


    I really need to learn how to let go and work from imagination...

    Some more quick figures- I realise I should have grounded the hand more on the one in the bottom right, with some shadow or something .. looks like it's on a different plane..

    This is a copy of a drawing done by Paul Delprat, the JA principal.. copied from the original.. was a great exercise.

    I really enjoyed your sketchbook and the attention you devote to the human figure. Are they done from a live model, or photographic reference?
