Hey everybody! I've discovered the "50 heads in one month" proposal 2 days ago.. so i don't think i can make the 26 july deadline.. but i'll try to do as much as i can.. even if i make them until 11 august :) it's very challenging though...

heads 001-004

Lovely new work. :) It reminds me that I have wanted to do some charcoal work myself. :)

Looking forward to seeing more!

thank you very much Rebecca.. it's nice to see u here:) i didn't used charcoal for the last one, it's drawn in pencil, but when you've mentioned "charcoal" it gave me the desire to use one.. so here's the result:)

Lovely work! I think the leg studies have some very nice qualities.

Someone whose thread you would enjoy is razz:

Anatomy Thread of razz (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=352287)

He has done some great Vilppu studies in his thread. Have you heard of Glenn Vilppu?


He has a book (The Drawing Manual) and several DVDs that are worth taking a look at. :)

Wow, these are gorgeous - I adore the linework on the leg studies, and I love the contrast of the blue against the orange-y tone of the paper in your head study #005 (but then I've always been a sucker for stuff done on toned paper...:)) Overall your work seems really strong - both in linework and the overall ability to convey a sense of vitality in an image...great stuff! :thumbsup:

Rebbeca.. you are very helpful..:) i will check out razz's thread when i have a little bit of time..(i'm busy at school this period) and yes.. i know Glenn Villpu.. he's a great teacher.. really like the renaissance style of his drawings.. and i hope to get 2-3 free days to study him.. thank you again for checking this thread.. really makes me draw more:)

Prisca.. thank you very much :)

You're most welcome! :) Lovely update here, and I'm glad to hear you're familiar with Vilppu. I've just been made aware of another apparent drawing master, John Watkiss (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=383866). The middle portrait is lovely, hope to see more work like this here! :)



07-28-2006, 08:11 PM
@sabrina: you're very kind.. thank you:)

@rebecca: thanks again... you really motivate me to draw more:) didn't know about Watkiss.. but i see some very nice anatomy drawings of his.. worth checking out.. thank you for stopping by:deal:
