Some clarification to Naked Tuesday since there seems to be some confusion.
I am not a student. This is not a bona fide class.
I am a professional animator and I do this every Tuesday because
1. I love it.
2. It's good for my portfolio.
3. It's good for me artistically.
4. Many other reasons.
What it IS is a group that meets at an artist's studio every Tuesday night for the purpose of figure studies. We start out with 5 gestures that last five minutes and then the rest of the evening is a long pose.
Any other questions?

Steve: A selection of 5 minute gestures
I like them. I wish I had been able to go a little bit faster so I could have done a better job on his feet and hands but his face actually isn't too bad in most of the drawings. The one in right top corner is actually only a 3 minute drawing.
Steve: One Hour
Well...I have mixed feelings about this one. One the one hand, I think there is a lot that works rather well. On the other it comes out looking a little more cariacatured than I would have liked. It also come out a little more `high contrast' than I had originally anticipated though that does seem to be one of my trademarks.
What do you think sirs?
