    wow, i love those studies. You got some really clean shadow planes and some light that really works well. I may ask what pencil(s) you use?

    These are all very nice drawings. One thing I think you can work on in your sketches from life, which is actually is talked about in the Bridgman drawings you copied, is the idea of active and inactive sides of the body or stretch and pinch. Basically as an area of the body compresses or flexes the contour of that side of the body becomes very active(from bulging muscles and sometimes folding skin) conversely the opposing side of the body becomes elongated and smooth. By emphasizing this, especially in quick sketches, you can get a much better feel of activity as well as underlying structure.

    These are really nice figure studies. The line work is very clean and precise. I can see progress from the first set of figure to the next. I can see that your lines became more clean and less angular making the woman more feminine. I even noticed more facial features in the figure work. Keep up the good work.

    Wow I'm really impressed by the improvement you've shown over the course of your practice. Out of curiosity how long have you been drawing (and especially how long have you been drawing from life). I have only just got into the idea of concept art and was wondering if this Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life is useful or not? Keep up the good work!

    im drawing since 2000 maybe.. I started drawing from live two mounth ago. In this tread my first works from live. I found that simple coping Bridgmen book realy helps to feel the masses and flowing of lines of the human body. You need to try to understand will it help to you or not )

    Like other arts, there are many different skills that need to come together before we are able to really draw the figure. You've tackled, with success, a number of them. I would suggest that you add to this technical knowledge by following the course of study in Nicolaides "The Natural Way To Draw." You need to be more fully engaged- with all your senses- with the model. Let yourself draw from the inside out. Do running line gestures, just feeling the
    flow of energy through the body. I'm not going to give detailed instruction here: you'll find it in the book. Great drawing is really a combination of many different abilities. Being able to feel the pose in your own body, fully empathy with what you are drawing, leads the artist to emphasize some things more than other things- its what we can do that the camera cannot do.
