Figure drawing and anatomy is one of my favorite things to draw. Drawings allow me to indulge in whatever subjects I like without to much time and art materials. In this way I can experiment too. Often if the drawing is successful (and is kind of sexy too, I'll use the drawing as a plan or "study" to make an oil painting or a watercolor later on.
Other things I like to explore in my drawings are making marks and shading. I like for the marks to be the same as my brushwork. The marks are designed to emphasize the directions of the planes and emphasize the volumes.
Sometimes I think that if I didn't like painting and drawing the figure so much I might have become an abstract or non-representational artist focusing on repeating patterns like this fleur des lis in the background.
I draw with lithographic crayons which are time tested for stability and permanence. They are also much sturdier than drawing with charcoal because they will not smudge or smear while being handled or mailed. The paper that this is painted on is called Rives BFK, which is a type of heavy cotton printmaking paper that won't degrade over time and should hold the color really well for at least fifty to one hundred years without fading, especially if this is framed behind glass.

The size is a standard US frame size and can be framed inexpensively. Try buying a frame on the net.
