Since I'm on a posting roll I thought I'd post some of my recent figure drawings.
Advice and criticism welcome!

These are beautiful.  I greatly admire them and am envious of your ability to draw the human body so beautifully.  It is one subject that I constantly have trouble with.

Seeing drawings like yours make me wish I could draw the human body well.

Thanks to the both of you!

I don't draw nearly as much as I should but with compliments like these I sure am encouraged to do so more often.

You did very well with the foreshortening on both drawings. Your use of line is very expressive. Personally, I am drawn more to the second one, where the figure is sitting up, but I like them both.

Yeah! Figure Drawing is my favorite! Are these from a class you take? 

Good job with foreshortening (it's a real killer for me...) and use of line to sculpt the body on paper.  nice portraiture as well. 

By lightening up on your contour line, the figure's will fit in space more, and seem less flat.  Just some advice... but seriously.... very nice work and I really hope to see more soon.  Wink
