Done as part of a 1 hour class.

My current goal is: I don't know! I am an absolute beginner; I'm here to study the basics of rendering

Art Of Rux

well, it's a good place to start. you could try to go more into detail, but as a quick sketch, it seeme alright. i suggest you to learn about measurements and proportions. they may give you a headache, but it'll help you if you use them in each drawing. keep sketching, practice is key! also breaks :)

Hi Sine

My opinion only. Plus I'm from classical atelier painting, so really different field.

You've got a basic foundation capability so all it is now is steady directed practice.

I think you're trying to bite off a lot at one time. Rendering, proportion and timed classes are really difficult. I personally don't understand why beginner and amateur poses are so short - that's really difficult. First get a good reference text/video. Set up a simple still life - non-perishables only - properly lit with stable lighting (look up how to make a shadow box) and work slowly and carefully.

Even if it's only a couple of eggs (you might want to blow them out so they don't rot, but eggs are great studies), it may take you a week or two to get right. That's fine, and yeah, I just about went nuts too. Also, don't start and restart - keeping working on the one drawing until it's perfect.

While I'm typing this I notice a pop-up for Anthony Ryder's Figure Drawing book advertised. If I remember correctly he hired the model for 36 hours for each drawing. And he's professional! I'm a member of a club that hires for 18 hours (6 Fridays, not all at once!). We're wannabe's.

One thing you do need to decide is what type of art you want to do: Study methods differ. I'm moving from classical to Illustration, animation is still more different as is cartooning.

Sorry, I can't get the image insert to work.
