Thanks very much for the kind words Dleeg and trickyRaven. Not so sure about the speed part lately, I feel like I ve been really slackin.

Have to admit the use of grids has helped me with proportions and especially with establishing my starting points (I like to start at the eyes and work out).

+ I really got lucky with the texture of the canvas boards lending themselves to human skin. A little cross-hatching, some dots as blemishes- voila! (That totally landed in my lap).

Anyway- trying to stay on the path and improve each time- nothing like a bunch of kick-ass artists pushing you to keep going-

Thanks again guys!

I have just started drawing and find grids really useful to learn perspective and layout of faces and the like.

Great first post finbar. There's nothing like restoring life to four and a half year old thread just to tout the false attributes of a misguided grid system.

Hi Just, love your albums. Regrettably I don't have a shadow of your skills so forgive me for using any crutches I find to get me off the mark.

Most people don't. Using grids will keep you from getting here.
