Done as part of a practice session with poses of 5 minutes in length.

My current goal is: Improve at correctly capturing the overall proportions of the human form


Again. Very nice. I can see your reference lines but they don't dominate the image. Not more scribbly than it has to be. Again very efficient use of line.

Again, very nicest job you've got there, Jel, but I've got one tiner, smallest, and littlest request: I totally like how you've got vitality and energy in the tones and spaces and edges and relationships, so why don't you please do it really "blindly" in 1-29 seconds and 2x30 second mugs??

The reason is, as a result, you'd be even more in tune with your right hemisphere in drawing what you completely see in front of you, even a computer photograph.

Hope you find that completely and totally constructive and useful.


The expression is very well captured, however, as you mentioned you are working for better proportions so:

The eyes are not correct, the figure's right eye (our left) is farther so as per perspective it should be smaller but you have made it bigger than the left one.

Try to capture the laugh line area with a single line next time, or if you are willing to create the face planes let it follow the curvature of face muscles.

good work! it takes 5 minutes? or one of drawing in 5 minutes session?

anyway I love that facial expression. and it seems that your goal, capturing overall proportion, is chieved somewhat. but the eyes are a little bit big. I feel you gave deforme in it a little.

anyway, keep it up.
