Gerak - this looks like a relatively quick sketch-(I can see your construction lines near the hat). Would be fun to see your reference example. You've got some nice line variation going!
(I might be going out on a limb here, but I may be having some of my drawing instruction tips and examples posted in the "Art School on Line" area of Wetcanvas before long. This area appears to be accessed on the Wetcanvas main page.) Again, I might be announcing this prematurely (SCOTT??????..hope this is ok????), but I'm hoping that some of my examples (along with commentary) will be helpful for those interested in figure drawing. Not exactly sure when the pages will appear, Scott has been EXTREMELY!! busy. There are many ways to approach figure drawing..step by step. Some methods work better for some, and not for others. I would like to pass along some things I've learned that were eye-openers while I was in school.
I know you enjoy drawing and sketching Gerak..just stay with it.

It was a video capture from the movie,a small jpeg file. Sorry, I lost it somewhere.
My other way to find 'models' is my TV card.
I can make videocaptures from interesting broadcasts.

I can't find it in the drawing section.

Wow...it will be interesting I think!

Michael Thanks for your support.

Hi Gerak - Looks like the first lesson is up.
It is fun for me also! I taught a drawing class for children here in Fort Collins one summer (It was part of a program for children that included dance and their involvement in plays, theatrical arts.)
I approached drawing from a cartooning angle, basic cartoon shapes, and had each of them come up with their own "Super-hero"..an each child gave their "heros" their own set of unique abilities (And UNIQUE they were!! lol)
Was great fun and a wonderful experience for me...the thing I'll always remember is when (at the conclusing of the class) many of them came over to me and hugged me (well at least my knees!!!!), as only one or two of them were over the age of 3-4!!! They seemed genuinely disappointed that the class would not be continued (funding). It meant a lot to me. (Gerak, thanks for your support also!!)
