    I'm going to try to start drawing more (on top of everything else I'm doing lately).

    Last commission to go (that I've heard back from), Tempie.

    I actually love the way that's started of the two sisters.

    Here's some pics from my figure drawing classes. (6 hours a week!)

    I can't remember how long these drawings took. I think the max is 20 minutes or so.

    ETA: This one, I don't think I ever showed but it was a long while ago. Done when I was stranded with just a computer.

    You've got such a fabulous eye for structure and dimension.
    (I really want to see that one of the 2 Paps finished!)

    Thanks! I LOVE anatomy type drawings. Even if I draw a fantasy creature I want it to move the right way and all that. It's fascinating to me.

    I'm really hoping this next year I can work on drawing humans mostly as they're so much harder than dogs or any other animal. I'm getting better but I still have a long ways to go. I can draw dogs pretty much without thinking and from memory and they generally look okay but humans take so much concentration from me. I do the figure drawing in three hour chunks and by the time it's done I'm pooped.

    You keep getting better and better.

    One of these days you're going to realize that you don't need a regular job anymore . . . just your art ;)

    Eh, I've discovered that I don't enjoy commissions too much and that they seriously stress me out. Now if there was a way to paint whatever I want and then just sell it... ;)

    Do me a favour. Draw, from YOUR mind, Peeta from Hunger Games. Your drawings of figures capture emotion and I have tried over and over to picture him. I would love to see how you see him.

    I really really like the weight of this figure. You captured it well, especially considering he's sitting in the air at the moment.

    These are great! Figure drawing (at least for me) triggered some serious forward motion in the rest of my work (not that I have half your talent)...I LOVE the very structured way that you see your figures and you have a fabulous grasp of anatomy!!!

    I hope we will be seeing more soon? =)

    Wow those are awesome. I really like some of them. The computer pap is really crisp and professional looking.

    Figure drawing is about the best thing you can do I think to improve your skills. My first figure class I saw a ton of improvement and I still think it's helping a ton. Can never do too much figure drawing.

    Thanks Dekka! I wish I had that program (Corel Draw) on my computer or I'd try more. I have Adobe Illustrator which I think once I figure it out it will be just as nice but I find it much harder to get crisp lines.
