Some of the better sketches to come out of my life drawing classes this year at LASALLE College of the Arts. Six straight hours of drawing from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on a Saturday. Exhausting but fun work.

As others have said, you have astonishingly bold lines. Your style seems so stable through this, what do you feel you're learning? Is it the postures?

I'm confused as to what you mean? For me I treat life drawing classes as an opportunity to draw the human figure, in all it's nuances and proportions. Posing, particularly with things like foreshortening, are a challenge I try to attempt as well. And sometimes if I'm feeling comfortable with the subject already, I'll try a different medium.

Those are awesome, really. I really should do some of these myself once I get some free time. And somehow, I can sort of recognize your style even in these life drawing nudes :)

See I took a class to be able to DO stuff like this but my teacher was a grad and was so terrible that it was a complete waste of time. Now I have to learn this stuff all on my own. ): Jealous.

Not many naked people in real life as I would hope. ): Cloths cover up a lot of body curves that I would like to practice with.

The nearest beach is like 3 hours away. ^^; Don't get me wrong, I'm still going to practice and snoop for relatively undressed people *shifty eyes*. I just had a great opportunity and it kind of got . . . less great . . . with the wrong teacher.

I am extremely jealous of your life drawing. This is the kind of life drawing I aspire to achieve. As I was looking though and spotted Louis, I couldn't help but laugh. Somehow it feels like it would be him to join in the nude activities. xD

The community college I went to didn't even have figure drawing until *literally* the semester after I graduated.

Darn, that sucks. I actually found out about LASALLE because they collaborated with my high school and offered life drawing classes, so I've been attending them on-and-off for a few years.

If I can get the money together I plan on trying to find an Illustration/Animation school.

but for now, I'm still trying to learn and grow on my own.

My favorites of this is when the female model is sitting. Six hours? Dang, but the hours pay off in your work.

Pfff, that French girl line. Gawd.

Six hours of standing around modeling, we had to give the poor woman a chance to rest. But she did have a tendency to fall asleep ...
