I like this graphite.....it has more than a passing resemblance to a figure study I did in a recent Life session.....same angle..same expressive strokes....but not only did you get the whole figure on paper....but you also did a much better job at rendering it.
Thanks for posting this I hope you post more!!

Very nicely done, it shows a good understanding of how to draw the figure... and fit it onto the paper! I like the expressive use of the pencil, what time pose was this?

Tom...this and your other two posts are an excellent way to introduce yourself.
It's very expressive, great line and you've tackled the technical difficulties of the pose very well.
Welcome to the figure forum and I hope we see much more of your work.

WOW! real old school. The best kind of drawing that Da Vinci or one of those guys would have posted had they had the internet.

Where did you learn or are you still learning?

Hi Bill, is there a way to post my pictures larger ?. Tom

Yes Tom, when you go to the reply to thread window go to the quick links menu above right, then go all the way down to the bottom Image Uploader use that, remember to make your pics no larger than 500 x 600 pixels
keep yelling until you get it :D
