You're getting really good at this! These are the best yet Matt, very expressive and you can feel the tension in the poses. Very nice!

Matt these are AMAZING!!! You never fail to impress me!!
I love your fluid and very expressive lines, creating such great character in your gesture drawing!!
So much energy!! You make it look so easy.... im itching to do some life drawing... right now at 1:30am!!
Thanks, so inspiring as usual!!

Hope your keeping well? Im coming back to LA for a couple of months before my opp at the end of the summer.
I'll be working at San Diago comic con and plan to visit the all studios, so maybe see you some time soon?? :)

All the best!!
Big hugs from the UK,

Uli - thanks, regular sessions really help, I plan to do it twice a week now.

Tori-appreciate the support. San Diego should be fun-will you wear a costume?

Rosie said...

Your people have oodles of personality.

I agree with Uli these are really somethin'.
I do wish there was a similar class in London.

Matt J said...

Rosie- I'm constantly trying to get expression in these drawings, so thanks!

K-American models are so much better-they're all natural performers here! I don't miss the wooden, stiff, un-dynamic poses of UK art classes!

I concur with what's already been said, but as the session went on, you've begun to find the caricature in the poses as well. Wonderful, Matt!
