Back To Some Basics
Actually It Is Always
About The Basics
Focusing On Features For
A Couple Of Weeks
To Bone Up On
The Finer Points Of
Form & Structure
Have Been Looking At
Vanderpoel And Have
Gotten Some Good Stuff
From His Little Book.
Read The Copy As It
Relates Very Well To
The Little Drawings
Next To It.
As You Can See I Put Most
Of The Studies In Heads
Instead Of Treating Them
As Individual Objects.
I Think That It Is
To Relate The Parts
To The Whole As
Much And As Often
It Seems To Me That
Vanderpoel Was Well
Understood By Bridgman
As His Book And Hatton's
Were The Main Sources
Available At The Time.

Pure awesomeness. The chalk gesture drawings blow my mind. Also your increasingly elegant stylization of hands.
For the human figure, is it sufficient to do several hours of gesture drawing every day? Will that alone get a person passable?

Thanks for the dedication mentler. Great work. I enjoyed listening to you at the workshop.
love your stuff man, very inspiring!
^ Love this.
Wow, ur studies, style, and work, everything here is beauty, lol I can't believe my eyes. U probably have answered this already. But is there a way i can get ur notes or studies or something? They look very precise and educational. Stop by my sketchbook if u want, thanks so much
Went through the first 20 pages or something, and you sir are amazing. This thread was
soo much inspiration!! Did a whole bunch of studies of your works, feels like I learned a lot.
Thank you so much for being around and sharing your art =)

Would he walk upon the water If he couldn’t walk away?
And would you, Would you carry the torch for me?
I like your work.
It is well.
Beautiful. The human body sure is interesting hehe. So far I have only looked at some random pages, but I will make sure to look through your thread closer eventually. A lot of times this kind of anatomic studies becomes dull, at least mine, but damn yours have a great feel to them.
Wow, just wow, excellent structure and use of line. Makes me want to bust out my art table and do some traditional stuff.

I have read through this and your book of bones thread twice in the last two days, amazingly interesting and inspiring. You made me look at capturing the figure in a whole different way, thank you Sir!
Been some time since I posted.
Getting ready to start teaching again and doing a little
review of Vanderpoel, Bridgman and Hale.
As always I try to take it to the next level and work
a great deal from imagination.
I am always searching for new things to teach and
new ways to teach them.
