Very nice stuff Dangerous. I'm interested in the class - I'm already signed up for Nathan's mon night class, so it would be a nice compliment.
Here's my stuff :
hey, Brendan, not bad! have you studied with Glenn Vilppu before? Your figures are reminiscent of his.
mmm... I guess they still haven't updated the supply list so I'll post it here:
1)Drawing board (large enough for 18 x 24 drawing pad)
2)18 x 24 sketch paper (Canson Biggie Sketch pad or similar)
3)Pencils- may use any from list:
- Derwent Drawing Pencil (ivory black 6700 or Terracotta 6400 or Venetian Red 6300)
- Faber-Castell Polychromos (Schwartz, Black 9201-199)
- Koh-I-Noor Hardtmuth GIOCONDA pencil (Red Chalk 8802 or Negro 8815/1)
- General pencil co. Kimberly pencil 525 9XXB
4)Single-edged razor blades
6)Sketchbook (for taking notes and sketching)
If you have conte and smooth newsprint that's ok to use in place of the bond paper and pencils I've listed.
INCREDIBLE work! I love how smoothly and gracefully you can render. This inspires me to want to bust out the grey paper and prismacolors...
Dangerous - yep, I'm studying with Glenn now.
Stunning work, really beautiful.. the confidence and energy in your line work is amazing. This thread is a favourite
nice drawings..they have volume,line, anatomy, ..but one thing they lack..strong form and sensitivity to value..i think a goo visit to the museum will help ,a deeper study for the softness of light can only be learnt from those white greek or academic sculptures..that will put a lot more refinement to your already strong drawings..
i just wish i was in LA so i could mooch some learning out of you... (nuts)
post more though, at least right now I can save your art and refer back to it when i think MY stuff looks like crap (which it does. my stuff does look like crap. crappy crappy crap.)

Well, my last class got canceled due to low enrollment... but I will be teaching again this coming term at LAAFA!
As before, the class will be a figure drawing quick sketch class, and will cost $420. If you are interested, the class will run for 10 weeks every Wednesday starting July 30th. There is more information here [link]
If anyone is in the la area and interested then you can check out the site or email me for more info.
LAAFA will also be hosting an open house on July 19th 11-4pm (Free food and workshop!)
and here are some more drawings:
I really love your work
it is really great inspiration to me
thanks for posting and making my eyes fresh again!!!
I can't help thinking your class was cancelled!
if I were in LA I'd be joining the class for sure
if you have time for some C&C I'd be honored
here is my stuff
your figure drawings are superb! Very inspiring!
Nice work! Did you by any chance study with Karl Gnass and Glenn Vilppu?
Good God I love your drawings!
There is a quality of line - eve in the hatching - that i have not been able to figure out. loosenes and still control over the line width and placement.
I am impressed.
I live way down south in Alabama and I have been saving up for my next big art workshop adventure,
LA huh... LAAFA...
Do y'all do any more condensed workshops, I don't think my job would let me loose for 10 weeks.
If you get a moment, please have a look/crit at my sketchbook
