I'm always amazed at the infinite variety and interest you get in your head designs.

Cloth folds are looking incredible! Are you just working from imagination most of the time or do you hit the books on occasion?

I'm currently working through some Preston Blair, trying to improve my poor construction. What's your opinion on his book?

Keep it up dude!

Thanks a lot Shoki!

The folds are mostly from imagination. Sometimes I'll see something on tv and try to get it down real quick. I should be doing some studies though. I'm really lacking in the draping/hanging department.

Haven't seen the book but definitely know his work. His shapes and construction are rock solid. Tons of life and weight in just a few lines. I should be doing what you're doing. Thanks for the heads up, I'll have to get that soon!

Really impressed those folds are from imagination, they have the have the look and feel of real cloth.

I don't think you need the book since you display those principals he teaches so well! I assumed you might have looked at his work since your art is so impeccably constructed.

I've uploaded a first edition(?) of his book here if you want to take a look: http://www.mediafire.com/?umleqxy2mkd54cc

Thanks dude!

Some timeless knowledge in there for sure. I know I've seen a few of those pages floating around the interwebs before. Good stuff, thanks again!

These are really awesome dude. Your characterization is top notch. I'm really enjoying going back through all your pages of doodles, so creative.

Keep up the good work and thanks for dropping by my blog.
