WOW! Nice figure drawings Mike.

It's funny being in the LA area, the models kinda circulate around at different schools, I wonder if I have ever drawn this model before while I was in school, we had a bunch come through there, she looks kinda familiar. Are you still going to that class at the junior college? I keep wanting to take one up here in SLO but all the classes offered are in the middle of the day.

Thanks Jeremy. I wouldn't be surprised if you had this model in one of your classes -- a lot of the models we get in oc come down from the Long Beach and LA area. She was a great model, exotic features and lots of drapery, although she had her ears wrapped with this big earring thing sticking out the side which ended up looking odd in everyone's drawings.
I'm done with the college class for now, but we're about to start up a set of sessions at the game studio in LA.
