Face Short Sketches; 30s to 6min

My current goal is: Reduce stiffness and make my drawings feel more dynamic, energetic, fluid


if you want to be more dynamic, here are some exercises.

it's much easier to exaggerate, and then pull it back after rather than to do the opposite

exaggerate bones you see sticking out(darkening the line, add more lines for emphasis

another thing I like to do is, economy of a long line. something you used 2-3 lines to describe, can you combine it into one? i think you'll end up using curvier lines, and nothing describes dynamic more than a really nice curve. uh, yeah! try those and maybe you'll see something change.i enjoy that you're drawing the man's expressive face too. and not just a neutral pose. that is something to exaggerate too, an emotion.


Thank you Liole! I will definitely try your exercise. It sounds interesting! I appreciate you taking the time to critique my work.

What I am seeing I think that you can practice 3D forms and then practice the simple Loomis head and then move on to detailing and then u can prominently and accurately place those details
