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...

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:

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! :)
