Two Back Studies

Two recent life studies from school. They don't seem perfect but they are not bad either.
This semester, for the first time, it was not mandatory for us to draw (I mean life drawing), but I enrolled in a life drawing class so that I won't "forget" how to draw. I don't need to tell that I didn't bother to attend up till 3 weeks ago when I realized I had a lot to catch up on, so I went crazy and started drawing 3 or 4 times a week. There was one day when I made some 20 or 30 drawings (mostly croquis though). At first I really thought I had forgotten how to draw, but to my great surprise, I hadn't. Maybe my mind kept on drawing while my hands took a rest from work.
Sanguine plus pastel pencil on A3-size paper and graphite stick plus graphite pencil on A3-size paper.
