My recent quick sketch. I try to draw as few strokes as possible.
Most of them are 1~2 minutes poses.
The second one is 5 minutes
Hope you like it~
Thanks for viewing.
Man I'm glad I found this thread. This is some really great figure work. I love how you've got such a variety of times periods for your sketches. It's great to see how the pieces are developed under different contraints, really inspirational. My favourite stuff is the quick 1-3 minutes drawings most recently. It's something I don't do enough so its great to see it being executed so well. I hope I'm as good in 2 years time (just started life drawing).
Your oil painting is very good, only your third?! Wow, great stuff. My only crit would be what has been said already about the fleshtones. There's a lot of different colours in skin that is dependant on different situations the body is in. But I'm sure you've sorted that out already! Great stuff, and good luck to you, keep it up!
Pencils before Pixels....in theory..
savii - the sketchbook
every gesture in here is gold. i love 'em.
2 minutes and 10~20 minutes
Try to learn shading...
those gesttures just keep getting better and better.. keep it up
It is fun to see what you end up posting at the end of a session. I enjoyed your drawings of the dancers.
How about posting that 20 minute drawing of Leah, the one I pinned up on the crit board and wept over.
Not bad for two years drawing. Now there is an understatement!
See you next quarter in the life drawing sessions, and drag the rest of those AIS grads from work. It's been a while since they've dropped in.
Nice to meet you here.
How is everything?
I didn't take picture of that 20 minutes pose.
When I get chance to do it, I will post that one.
I will try to gather people here and
go back to do life drawing next quarter.

your figure drawing style is really different and refreshing.. i really love your quick gestures. what school do you go to?
Great! The open life drawing sessions are on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday this quarter. We have several new models that Faye brought in, and the UW dancers will be back as well, hopefully bringing some male dancers also.
We will have several costumed sessions this quarter as well. I'll get a notice out to as many grads as I can find.
You have the gestures down pretty tight, I agree, work on the longer poses more, and especially do more value studies.
See at the sessions,
*choking on excitement*
UGH...SO...FAST! Yet...SO...GOOD! You must have had a lot of practice with this type of gestural drawing. My 30 second gests don't look that beautiful!
Damn I just cant get over how little strokes you use. What's your trick for making the elbow/slash upper arm line? I always have to divide that one because it ends up beeing a little too exaggerated. Looks like you kinda draw the shoulder in with the torso a little sometimes, I'm gonna try that
25 minutes for each one

These are all wonderful...very inspiring! I love the energy in your quick sketches. Makes me want to pick up some charcoal again!!
wow! nice! I really like how loose you are with your figures. I would say study more faces, and anatomy. Wonderful work, I really enjoyed looking at your drawings
Jason, where are you man?! Need to see some new work, going through withdrawals here.
I catch a cold.
Still suffering......haeadache, running nose, cough.
You will not want to see me.
I am spreading virus everywhere.
But I do have couple new drawings I will post them when I get chance to scan.

I find your first one to be extremly strong, (March 17th post)
And I love your last one on your most recent post the composition is very strong, and I really love the mood as well as that pose.
I hope you get well soon, I've been holding a bacterial infection for 2.5 weeks now.
Man you have some vary confidant lines, some really good studys here. I really like the 4th picture of the last post you did, has a lot of feeling and it seems alive.
Cant wait to see some more, and of couse get well soon!
awesome drawings..i like the zoo sketches a lot..im yet to go to the zoo..hmm..but i will ..keep us updated..
Hey everyone! I know this guy personally! I used to hang out with him! If you give him a drawing you did, he'll tell what's good about, what's bad about it, what makes it good/bad, and will even fix it. Jason's da man!
Nice to see you here!
How is your new life in LA?
Send me E-mail and tell me about your new life.
Recently I got new painting and drawings.
I will try to post them as soon as possible.

dude i am love'n your life drawings.... i need to get the guesture stroke thing you have going there...
I love the head. I would have probably sharpened the edge of his neck under his head as well as the lit up shoulder, the rest i think is fine to remain fuzzy
Thnaks. I was thinking the same way.Originally Posted by PolinaH
In fact I do sharpened the edge of his neck, but I blur that after I sharpened
it. I even blur the chin. I think I already over done some of the area but I also feel I didn't finish it. Strange~~
3 hours session,
Actual working hour: 2 hour and 10 minutes
Excellent figure studies :::: paintings coming alone as well :::: do not tighten up to much :::: more time should not translate into more detail :::: value is more important than color :::: don't lose your value structure when you work on a piece for a longer period <> this is very easy to do 8888 also try to very your color temperature more <> up planes cooler <> sides planes and down planes warmer <> having cool planes and warm planes meet will add a great deal of life to your works...
