Done as part of a 30 minute class.

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

Nice to meet you. I'm participating from Japan. I would be very happy if you could give me a critique. I'm not very good at English, so I'm using translation software to write this text.

I may not be able to write a good reply, but if you give me a critique, I would like to refer to it.

Great energy and flow but try to press lighter and let your hand naturally arc to create nicer curves.

Try to keep your LOA in one motion. Rather redo it a few times than try to fix one that is done but is not right.

Great Job and keep it up.

Thank you!

I'll try it!


These hand drawings are excellent especially for a beginner. Hands and feet can be a traumatizing experience to draw so I love how you have challenged yourself to try lots of different poses. I love how you have included the gesture drawing below as that certainly helps a beginner.

My critique is too just let go. You could add more flow into the hands to try and limit the stiffness of the fingers and maybe even try in your next class a exciting composition to have a great experience and experiment with new things

Overall an AWESOME piece!!


Thank you!

I'll try it!
