Glad to find a place for ink lovers. This is just anatomy study based on Stan's tips of trying to maintain gesture, but also an attempt to be less dependent on hatching. Done with brush an ink ( though I did use the computer to make the paper completely white).

Great Exercise! I often do masterstudies in this approach, understanding the form concept of the artists. This one if from Titian, a quick study but valuable one. I learned perspective through Drawabox too and helped me a lot in the matter of form.

Jack Faragasso has a Reilly book but it is very complicated, I know Dough Higgins also has a few books on it but have not picked it up. I recommend following Watts' teachers on Instagram, such as Erik Gist and Brian Knox they drop tidbits of Reilly Abstraction. You could also audit 1 or 2 streaming classes ($49 to audit, $210 to participate). You can also base your study schedule on the online program without actually taking it, since the online program is in phases, and the preview, it shows what you learn in those phases. Ex. in Head Phase 1 you start off by studying head layins (loomis head), then skull in 3 views, simple Asaro head 3 views, Reilly Abstraction 3 views, finally Asaro Head in 3 views.

Muneem, you rock bro! Faragasso’s book is AMAZING. Now I have a bibliography to rely upon, thank you for your comment. 🙏

There is really a yin and a yang to all this. The answer for me is that you're never really done studying the fundamentals, but that shouldn't stop you from making the best art you can. Andrew Loomis talked about setting aside one day for study, and I know Norman Rockwell took classes all his life. I think they recognized that mastery is illusive, and there is always a deeper understanding one can achieve. That said, I think there can be a tendency to put off tackling big art projects because we don't feel ready. That's paralysis of analysis. People who do nothing but exercises, but no finished art fall into this trap. Sure, it might not be perfect, but so what? Dive in. If it doesn't turn out great, then it was just a draft. Furthermore, great art can survive mistakes. We're living in a media culture largely built on the shoulders of Jack Kirby comics with all of their made up anatomy. Art doesn't have to be perfect to be good.

Hi Allan, I like your use of coloured inks, and I love the third one with the man in shadow (is it done in ballpoint pen?). I've posted some of my Inktober drawings from this year. I love drawing in ink, but my go-to medium is pencil.

I like your different shading methods in your drawings :) Nice touch with the darker areas around the skulls, gives them some punch. I'm new here, just registered today, so I'm still getting the hang of the site. I have not even set up my profile yet ;) But I guess I could manage to post an image, so here it goes. A portrait, done with fountain pens, technical pens and fineliners (for the lightest parts).

These look great - that shading in the skull must have taken you forever! I applaud your precision. I actually need to do more in ink, I find ink drawings soooo beautiful, but I am lazy and they get sloppy quickly.

Thank you, Smithies! I made that shading in 2 hours or so, the drawing is kinda small. Do you have some ink drawings to show?

It would be super nice if we had an category just for chats on Pen and Ink related stuff.

Hello, I recently got a book called Figure Drawing For Concept Artists by Kan Muftic and there’s a bit about Reilly rhythms in there. It’s not very in-depth or but thought I’d point it out. It’s a beautiful book. As others have mentioned, Watts Atelier is probably the best place to learn about Reilly rhythms.

Hey Allan, I found the watts atelier teaches the reilly rhythms the best. Unfortunately though it is behind a pay wall

Watts is expensive for me right now, I also saw that New Masters Academy teaches it too and I’m looking forward to be a member in the future

Imo just watch the Tim Gula vids on the channel. They should be on youtube but he explains the bibliography very well. Something to keep in mind is how most of the time the road to mastery is the road to the fundamentals. Look at his drawings analyze them and hear what he says. You'll get a strong bibliography. For example one his rhythms seem to follow the main direction of what he fells it's going. Most highlighted by the rhythms of his arms and torsos. There're more but I think it's easy for you to find them. Just remember learning doesn't have to come from books. Study you subjects you want to learn and analyze how it feels.

Allan! Hello from Argentina! I love books, and I am also looking for a book with the Reilly method. But, the only thing I found is a long article by Ron Lemen in an ImageFX magazine. The title of the entire magazine is "How to draw and paint anatomy." The article by Ron is entitled "Human anatomy, a complete workshop on bringing your body drawing to life." It seems very good, but I did not study it in detail yet.

Hi Demetrio, saludos hermano! Mi madre es de Argentina, I’m currently reading these ImagineFx magazines but unfortunately it doesn’t cover much on Reilly method, just a scratch (but it was helpful though).
