DaVinci used grids. And on one hand, I sort of admire your idealistic purity and pet peeve vs grids, but...on the other hand, you can bite me.

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

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

Jeff 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!
