Hey lightbit! What was your practice goal when working on this? :)

Lightbit

oh, sorry.

to get a better grasp on the human body, of course, and also to practice shading/value. this isn't a proper value study, but i avoid shading often, so i thought i might as well try.

Interesting -- many students jump directly to shading, often way, way too early. What do you think makes you want to avoid it?

Lightbit

ah, just that it makes you know forms and stuff, and i don't have a very good grasp on that kind of stuff. i like gesture and quick sketching, not construction or painting or anything that can't be done quickly.
