"Old Master" gesture

I did a few quick gestures of some "Old-Master" sculpture, these are the 3 I like the most so far. The body of Jesus in the Pieta was and interesting challenge since it appears lifeless.

This is what I selected from..
Here is few from "Old-Master" drawings..

Re-doing last weeks assignment

I decided to re-do the last weeks assignment, since I feel I did not pay attention to what was required. After the feedback I got from Michael I did ~60 more life gestures today, the top 6 being shown here.

This is an effort pay more attention to the story and flow instead of the silhouette and trying to connect all the parts.

 Here is the rest...Lots to learn.

After completing many 1 minute gestures for the Analytical Figure Drawing class, I selected several of the better results to post here.

I enrolled in Michael Hampton's class "Analytical Figure Drawing" starting on April 20th. After several years working in 3D for Game Development, it is refreshing to get back to the basics.

Last Sunday, I visited the Cantor Arts Center in Stanford with my kids. Since they offer drawing materials to visitors, it seemed like a good opportunity to get started. Here is a few of my kids, a exhibit statue and the horse from a exhibit painting.
