figure #6

A recent figure drawing, Nupastel on white 18"x24" drawing paper. I can't figure out how to get a good digital representation of the drawings yet.
I sat next to the great Adam Ford, you can see his superior version here. Adam is a master of shadow and lost edges. And this one has some beautiful form work, and his mid-tone shadows are unbelievable.

Thanks for the links to so many great artists, some of them are new to me, so, its a nice day.
Your figure#6 is impressive too, the technique in the nose and mouth is incredible.

absolutly amazing life drawing ^_^

i'm an art student from toronto and i feel that we don't get enough class time to make a complete drawing like this. out of curiosity, how much time did you spend on this drawing?

Thanks guys,
Samantha-Thanks, this is a 2 hour piece. I would actually prefer 3 hours at least for anything decent.

Great drawing David! I think that the shadows are very goods.
