Love that Olga pose, that is groundbreaking and definitely influential.

If I could recommend you on something, it would be to warm-up more olga poses and more poses, in 28 minutes, and all in 30-second poses, pretty please????????? The reason is because, your acting and posing will become the most caricatured and distorted in poses.

Hope it's been completely and totally commodious.

Thank you for your critique. At this time, there are only 4 photos of Olga. I do not time my work. It is what it is. I go back to the local life drawing sessions which are timed 1 min, 2 min, 5 min, and a longer pose say 10 plus min. The sessions last a total of 2 hrs with a 15 min break. I have been doing this for over 6 yrs. The 1 min poses are the warmup. I have 30 volumes of these sessions (avg of 175 drawings per volume). I have become better over time and am able to draw the pose very quickly (practice makes better). The shorter the pose the less detail can be rendered. Please explain to me what I would get out of doing the shorter length poses. I will certainly listen to what you have to say and seriously consider what you have to say.

Looks like you're doing well so far, but the pose comes off as stiff. I think you can work on capturing the curves of the body and making longer strokes to help with this. Good job!

Look at the original photo. It is stiff. I will try to do better.
