Rebecca, you've done it again! I've grown used to frequent figure studies in your 'Figuratively Speaking' workshop; starting this thread's probably the best way to keep it up.
I'll mostly post some of my pieces from the workshop for the next two or so weeks, but once my schedule clears up I'll hopefully be posting additional studies, life drawing pieces, concept characters.... whatever floats my boat.
I hope you enjoy what I have to offer in this thread, and c&c is always welcome!

It was such a pleasure to have you in the Workshop, and a huge thrill to see your work showcased all at once ~ this is quite an impressive sight! :)

You really worked hard and your efforts have clearly paid off. It was quite cool to see your experimentation and development throughout the course, and it was always a pleasure to see your work.

It's great to see your, Woody, and Irina's threads up, and I hope to see more Anatomy Threads as well from your fellow participants. :) Looking forward to seeing much more work here!

By the way, you should really consider creating a CGPortfolio, since it is free to all CGTalk members. This thread will give you the most useful information regarding the CGPortfolio, which is a wonderful feature and addition to CGTalk. It's pretty cool! :)

EDIT: Also, your Anatomy Thread has been added to the master list, here ( :)

Cheers, :)

Thanks for the kind comments! I've been working on the same study for way too long now, bogged down by computer issues. I'll make it this weekend's goal, so expect something within a few days hopefully. Should that fail, I'll post a few recent bizarre pencil sketches.

Here's some WIP for a long overdue project. Ref by Hong Ly (

Lack of productivity has definitely left me sluggish... The head and face in particular I'm having trouble with in this piece. Let me know what you think, any and all input is greatly appreciated. Sorry about the incomplete (ahem missing) clothing.... but I really can't work on this anymore tonight :)

Heya Malek,

Good to see more of your work! :)

I think one thing you should always try to do when working from a clothed model is to focus on drawing the lay~in first. Right now I think the main problem you're having is that you've shortened the figure a bit, which makes things look off ~ clothes mask the problem, so it's always best to draw the figure as though the clothes were not there.

The lay~in is perfect for this:

Hope this helps! :)
