OFDWs = Open Figure Drawing Workshops.
OFDWs are Workshop threads in which anyone is invited to draw, paint, sculpt, or model from provided Reference within a given time frame.
OFDWs run every 2 weeks when we are working from Photo Reference, and every 4 weeks when we are working from Master Paintings.
Typically, new OFDWs will be announced on various forums around CGTalk.
OFDW participants may join or leave any Workshop at any time. However, I encourage everyone to participate in the most recent OFDW, as the benefit of working as a group is enormous. It's great to get and give advice and feedback to those working from the same reference.
All OFDW threads can be found linked here:

All OFDWs take place in the Tutorials and Workshops sub~forum here:

Please feel free to join in, even if it is only to give comments and feedback! Some amazing work is produced in these Workshops, and it is possible to improve quickly in them, especially if working digitally. Artists of all levels are welcome to participate.
At the conclusion of each OFDW, I will be posting the best images here in the SPOTLIGHT forum.
