Kevin Chen's demo drawings for his students, here is the link for the drawings and another link for some of his comments about the drawings. They were initially posted by him for his students from his class demonstrations but some of the images were lost and someone has posted all of them on another website for interested people. The text only gives you some of his ideas so you have to study the drawings to see what he is teaching.

http://conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=1432 some images and text

Kevin Chen has influences from Frank Reilly's teaching method and Glen Villippu among others so he is a very interesting figure instructor. Here is a link to the Frank Reilly Method' from a student of his, Doug Higgins, the Reilly program begins part way down the page.

Worth looking into as the Andrew Loomis books are now offline so its hard to locate them unless you can buy one of his books. Loomis's approach is also structural and very good too.

Now if you are into the long pose from observation then look at this Bargue tutorial.
