After many years in the theatrical/costuming career, I am commited to improving my figure drawing skills. To train myself I'm looking towards the traditional European masters, Greek and Roman sculpture. I am also using a multitude of drawing books for anatomy reference and proportion, as well as magazine ads. My goal is to have my drawing of characters recognizable from piece to piece, and more professionally executed with a style of my own. Most of my art is drawn from characters that I have roleplayed over the years. I've never gone public with any of my art before. I'm looking forward to having my debut here on Elfwood. I enjoy the variety and level of professionalism that I have observed in the galleries, and I expect this to be a great learning experience for me. I appreciate all pointers, comments, encouragement, and constructive critisism.
