"American Psycho" Stephan Bonnar Ufc Fighter body in motion drawing

approx. 6 x 8 inches pastel and panpastel on Canson paper
Before I head out to my martial arts class tonight I'm posting this new drawing, I should point out that my experience in this field really helps with this type of drawing, my understanding of the body movement, structure, anatomy, positioning etc really grew over the years and I think its become more apparent in my drawings and sketches, any extra knowledge behind a specific subject like this is always helpful.

Your figure drawings are very good. They show life and movement, while so many people at my figure drawing group don't show that same quality in their work. I am still using graphite pencil at the sessions, but I'm getting frustrated with the slowness, and I want to shade in shadows and contours more quickly, but I still want to be able to erase them and tweak them. Should I start using charcoal pencil? charcoal sticks? why do you use white chalk instead of white charcoal? Thanks for your advice!

Thanks Katherine, I advice all my students that only use graphite to try out vine charcoal, its very easy to erase so its very flexible, I use a variety of tools when drawing, I'll try to be more specific in my next posting and maybe show the actual tools that I'm using, I use both white chalk (for larger mases) and white charcoal pencil.


so great picture!!!
