Hello there! Here's my drawing which I very much enjoyed doing :). The rendering is not as good as I would like it to be, but for me the focus was on gesture and form, especially the torso and the pelvis area. @Patrick Jones, do you always draw on newsprint paper? I draw on standard printing paper, and I find the rendering not as smooth as in your drawing. I used Conté Pierre noire pencil. Cheers, Romain

Hi Romain, lovely work. Yes newsprint, mostly for mileage as we get lots of drawings done that way as there’s no worry about the surface dragging. The closest I’ve got to a white paper version that is acid free is bleed-proof marker paper. Good luck!

Relaxing drawing session, felt comfortable most of the time other than some times where my pencil control was off. Heavy critiquing appreciated

Fantastic demonstration and drawing process! I'm loving the commentary and explanations that accompany these lessons. This is just the type of course I needed to jump back into drawing in this manner and shake some of that rust off. As someone who hasn't drawn like this since July of 2020, I was expecting a horror show but I was pleasantly surprised by the results I've got by taking things slowly, drawing alongside the video as you went through the various stages of the drawing. With still much to learn, I'm looking forward to what the rest of the course has to offer, here are the results of what I was able to achieve. Cheers for this Patrick! I'll be sure to look at the other courses you've created in the near future.

Thank you @Patrick Jones I could definitely see my progression throughout the workshop. I was using pencil at first because I was afraid of the charcoal but this last one I went all or nothing and what a difference it made. I took the risk as you said.

Following along in this first video. It usually takes me more time to understand/construct a full figure, but here I feel I’m going faster and I’m quite happy with that. Can’t wait to move forward in this course. Thanks @Patrick Jones 😊!

It's such a wonderful demonstration, thank you! I learned gesture drawings from Proko, and also love Glenn Vilppu's messier gestures, but have trouble understanding his thinking. Your gestures are a perfect bridge between the two worlds, and now I understand Vilppu's gesture drawings too.

Hi @Patrick Jones 😀! I hope this finds you well. I have just started watching the first workshop in this course - I can’t wait to get cracking! I was simply wondering whether the reference images you use are available for download. No worries if they aren’t. Thank you! Romain ps: may I send you a private message via Instagram with regards to your Anatomy of Style online workshop?

Hi Romain, the deal with the models is no photos beyond what's on screen. a screenshot is the best workaround. I didn't see your dm as a lot are filtered out, but all details of the workshop are at this link: https://www.pjartworks.com/online-workshops

And so I've come to the end of the line, what a journey it's been. I'm stoked with the results I've gotten from these workshops, so glad I decided to take this course and that I was able to finish it. The overall video runtime might be 14hrs, but it took me considerably more to complete this in its entirety. Taking things slowly (or moving as fast as you're able without sacrificing quality or diligence) pays out in the end, as there's lots to unpack here throughout these lessons and all of it helps going forwards. All in all, great course here, thoroughly enjoyed it! I'm looking forward to hopefully taking the male counterpart to this if/when you ever get round to it. I'm very happy with finish on this drawing and glad I could end this series on a high note.

Thanks Charlie, due to the (Model) contract I could only show the photos on screen , so a screenshot might be the best solution . Good luck with your drawing 🧑‍🎨🙏☘️

Hi Patrick, do you incorporate (or have you in the past) feedback in your art process? Do you have any advice for receiving and seeking feedback for someone learning art outside of a structured environment (asking as someone starting their art journey after university)? The Proko site and posting pieces seems like a good place to start soliciting feedback, but was wondering if ya had any thoughts, thanks!

Hi Rollart, thanks for this question it was answered in the livestream I remember. I hope it helped.

Hi Patrick! Do you think there is "too much" fantasy art being made today? What could you say to anyone aspiring to be an artist of this magnificent genre, thinking that it might be a "saturated market"? Thank you!

Hi Octavio, I think if you always follow your heart your work will stand out even in a crowded market. It sounds a bit fluffy, but it's a universal truth. Wishing you luck with your art journey.
