The line of her torso/hip and the inside contour of her arm are fantastic, Michael. There's real energy and observation in this drawing!

I like all of them :D I used a pen for mine and like the dots that the spreading ink created as I was going slowly but it obviously wasnt slow enough :D

In woman II there is a nice observation of the gentle slope between the neck and the model's right shoulder. I also enjoy the streched out right arm which is a little giacometti. Looks like fun.

These are really amazing. I don't know when was the last time I did blind contour drawings like that. It's great to see new stuff on your blog! :)

I love all your blind contours, they are so full of life! I think BCs often come out more interesting than "regular" drawings, and they are fun to keep working on too, do some shading or maybe make a painting of. Lovely work!

Hey, these are great - there's so much conveyed by so few lines. Diane X

Michael -- since you haven't been taken yet, consider YOURSELF tagged (and you can choose to be either my #6 or #7... whichever number suits you best)!
;-) You can go to my blog to see what to do. I imagine there are seven interesting or odd things you could tell us about yourself...

Michael, your contour drawings as charming! Fresh, delightful. Would love to see you do them in black ink.
