some of this week's figure drawings

I've been working a lot with an online figure drawing reference called Croquis Cafe, which is a fantastic way to practice figure drawing at home.  Most of the videos are paced to do several one-minute poses, several two-minute poses, and then one longer five-minute pose.  I'll admit that I find the very short poses to be frustrating, but they are actually very useful in practicing different ways of approaching the figure, and in trying to get at the gesture of a pose.  The ones pictured about were each done over five to ten minutes, though.  (The beauty of an online resource is that it has a pause button!)
