Since I spend way too much time creating art and animation on the computer, it is important to maintain my traditional skills by drawing the figure from life. The goal is to loosen up my style, and the short time that the model holds the pose helps to meet that objective. These were created at various workshops in the Los Angeles area such as The Drawing Club, Kline Academy, and Dr. Sketchy's LA, averaging about 10 minutes each. A few "long pose" paintings from life are also included. Click on any thumbnail image for a larger view.
