My First Ever Figure Drawing

Isn't it great?

The following are my second and third figure drawings, respectively. I've been taking a beginning Figure Drawing class at the Y this summer, and it's been really great. I know the shading and proportions need a little work (and I need a bigger scanner I guess), but I'll get better. Let me know what you think (especially if you're an artist yourself -- constructive criticism please!).


It's been a month, and the wait is over. I've finally gotten my lazy derrier out of my chair-ier to post something.

This is an extremely rough character design for another personal project of mine that's been in the works for a few years now, actually (although it's only now starting to make its way to paper). Her name is Joss; she's an apprentice to a wizard of sorts (and she has a very big hat). Anyway, I'm still just a beginner on so many fronts (proportions, line quality, different styles, etc etc etc), but I'm sure I'll improve with time (oh, yeah, and hard work too). Let me know what you think!
