My next class doesn't start until April 6, so I have a nice little break. I'll be busy moving everything to the downstairs, and painting and cleaning to make the upstairs rentable. Hopefully I will be able to get some fun things in, and I'll post them here. Ciao!

This is another 9x12 pencil and charcoal drawing. I tried to get a sense of movement with the body. The feet were the hardest part to do, the left foot is cut off from the scanner, but it didn't look that good so I'm glad you can't see it, lol. Any suggestions for another god to do?

The worship of Neptune, as the Roman version of Poseidon, is another example of cross-cultural assimilation in the ancient world where a great deal of dialogue and syncretism among different civilizations took place—not merely strife and warfare.
This is a 9x12 drawing done with pencil and charcoal I finished today. I have always liked Neptune, and the entire mythology of those ancient gods. I took a nude dra ing class my sophomore year in college. Since then I haven't really drawn any nudes, since obviously I don't have access to a bunch of naked people. But drawing the human body is very hard, and I don't want to forget everything I have learned.
