Here is the new lesson, I hope you will all give it a go. Feel free to ask questions, and be sure and post your drawings for all of us to see. Have fun!---Michael
Ah..(guess I should trust Scott) he has provided the "Start a Conversation" link at the bottom of this lesson. I jumped the gun, and created another thread for those who want to post their work so we can all benefit by seeing it. So..I'll be checking both threads, but here (again!) is the link to Lesson #3: http://www.wetcanvas.com/ArtSchool/Drawing/DrawingRoom/Figure/Lesson3/

Michael - this is my quick outline drawing for the lesson. Tomorrow I will be on holiday, but I want a quick try, without the need of precision, just for fun. I really liked her figure, but the furniture was disturbing, because I didn't saw the whole thing. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

Gerak - First, let me apologize for not getting back until now to review your drawing... I'm happy that we caught up with each other in the Cafe today!! (a bit embarrassed here http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/frown.gif
I think your original drawing maintains your "style" of extreme simplicity of line. This drawing (your original) looks almost too brief-(as compaired to the line drawings you are doing based on the artists YOU prefer--that you've been posting.
I like your second version because you've added more definition..the addition of the fabric lines on both the chair and blouse..add interest in my opinion. I would say that the hand nearest her face is more in proportion than the other hand or her feet, as these seem a little too small in relation to the rest of the figure..especially her right foot. Again, attention to proportional accuracy may not have been your intention..there is a pleasing delicacy to her left hand..but the other looks angular. (I'm afraid I wasn't happy with my version of this hand nearest her face.. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/frown.gif
Gerak, I think you are developing a good eye for drapery on the figure..I especially like your copies of master paintings in this forum. I am curious how your drawing style will evolve..will you stay with primarily line..or will you begin to use more shadows..and values????? (should be interesting). An area that was difficult for me in some of my life-drawing classes..was the head/neck/shoulder relationship. You have handled this area quite well. I found that if the collarbone (clavicle) is readible..it helps with the proportions of that whole area. I would be interested to know YOUR sequence in developing your modified version. ie: how did you begin the drawing..and what areas did you develope as your were working on it..in sequence?
I am looking foreward to seeing more of you work.
