...was initially for pieces done on a computer, but has since become a free-for-all. Here you'll find process work (digital and otherwise), sketch pages and studies, sometimes with commentary.

pose exploration

Killin' time on the couch with my clipboard, letting the space on the page influence (dictate?) the next pose...like a puzzle...a sexy, sexy puzzle.



I need to foreshorten my legs more. I have apprehension when it comes to foreshortening arms, legs, trunks, feet, hands...foreshortening in general. Putting that on my to-do list, along with "make heads smaller" and "stop breaking necks."

The thing that's hardest about drawing girls is obscuring stuff. You feel like it's all good enough to be on display, but showing too much actually hurts the pose. Gets stiff and/or inplausible. Plus, even with a nude, something ought to be left to the imagination. Gotta be choosy and let your audience fill in the gaps.

SA-WEET, Richards!

Reminds me of the Vargas chicks that ended up as nose-art on WWII aircraft.

Totally dig'em!

I think white sport socks would leave enough to the imagination...or a choker...
