  1. These are all so well drawn but i like the one from Schiele… Again a drawing with little lines and it’s so clean! I like that people can draw with so little strokes!

    • Hi Lea, excuse the delay of my reply. I always appreciate a comment, and particularly this also serves a good reply on a tray. Because it is an opportunity to remember that the Art is on paper, only is out what motivates to draw or sketch.

      I will not tire of repeating that is a very interesting experience to see a drawing upside down. It is also interesting to see it through a mirror. So, you will value without being so enslaved by their meaning.

      In some parts of the work you have chosen, Egon almost carves
      his drawing. He can use long and sinuous lines for depict thighs and arms, but also sharply lines for neck or pointed lines for the elbow.

      A set of all types can be seen In his hand. The author draws a simple circle for a nipple or a spiral for the penis, because he well knows that the drawing must not to be a practicing of a simple mimesis, but create another reality on a canvas or a paper.

      Thank you very much for your comment so timely for write about my opinion. I guess it is a very generous mind from you. Something so friendly. Thanks a lot! See u soon!

  2. i love the simplicity, the primitive quality of the penck and can appreciate the fine lines and life within the da vinci. perspective and interpretation of what is seen and felt is everything.

    • So true, the Penck’s work brings us to don’t forget our origins, and the Leonardo’s work to develope and refine these. Like as so many scopes in our lifes. But dear Beth, your words are the key: perspective and interpretation of what is seen and felt is everything. Thanks a million for your comment! xo

  3. I really like seeing how all these different artists approached similar sorts of drawing. It’s fascinating 😀

    • Hi Miranda, the greatness of Sketchuniverse are its observers and supporters, because behind this site the only team is one person, and till now during a long day of work I was offline. Please excuse me my delay.
      About the Picasso’s drawing shown here, I know it was made during his first stage teenager.
      I also know that the sketch of Bacon was done with pencil and with strokes by paintbrush on paper, perhaps for this reason appear some stains. The Antonio Lopez studies are always almost endless drawings, in my opinion with little interpretation.
      You’re an expert. I think you’ve hit the bull’s-eye. When more similar is a subject more differences can be seen in the style of each author. Years ago when I drew natural nude studies, lasting one or three minutes, it seemed as every sketcher would been with a different model. As you say you, the human body does not have anything unknown, and therefore for the same boring reason, each artist looks for originality on paper, or through the amaze sensation that could get for example a crease or a spot of light over a area over the skin.
      I am very pleased for your comment, excuse my poor skill in english expression.
      Thank you very much!

  4. Thank you! I had not seen any of these before. The Raphael study for ‘The School of Athens’ is particularly interesting.

    • Oh yes Francesca, this is almost a Dream Team of the Culture, because this work gathers a lot of classic greek philosophers whom we owe a part of our western culture. Raphael didn’t conforms with a mere depiction of a group with wonderful clothes and garments and he wants to study every posture of the protagonists and the best way to do that is to study every part and muscles of their bodies, and that must to do through the male nudes. Thanks a million for this gift: it is your comment. 😉
