While I'm getting things scanned in, here's a quick study I did today from the artist Earl Oliver Hurst, this great illustrator from the 50s. Love his body shapes and the way he draws ladies; ended up drawing a hand from one of his drawings as well as an attempt at this lovely drawing. I drew it pretty quick and I notice a good number of flaws (face is too large among others), will probably take another stab at it at a slower pace when I can.
Also, I found that artist on Today's Inspiration, a blog that goes over a large number of illustrators from the 40's and 50's. Really good study and inspiration material!
