Daily dozen figures from
imagination and exaggeration.







Bridgman Unabridged.
This is just an expansion of
the mouldings section from
Bridgman's "Life Drawing"




Three from imagination and
a Bridgman adaptation.

Lovely. I feel the passion. I dig the first page most, simply because the poses are so dynamic and the exaggeration is just fine as it it there. Kudos.

Very nice work, I will study these.

The style reminds me of my teacher Steve Hampton, the guy is a genius at figure drawing.

Please know you are appreciated.

Wow, these arent bad for coffee stains, Mentler! Very Happy
In fact, they are bloody gorgeous! You got a Da Vinci touch!
And yes, your handwriting is awesome, too!
Is this your actual everyday handwriting or just stylized for your artwork descriptions...?

They have such a beautiful classical vibe! You are a true master, and I see snippets of Bridgman there Smile

I've been looking for the DVDs and couldn't find them in the SOFA site. I'd absolutely love to attend the real courses, but I'm afraid I can't afford moving to the US at the moment. It is some kind of atelier, right?
