Done as part of a 30 minute class.

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

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.

Hey there, and good day, akikoma, I love how your figures have turned out. Those figures really look like real nude, or half-nude, because they really look like so. That's a very awesome job.

Well, if I could give you some advice or two, then it would be this: Love how solid and realized your edges, spaces, and relationships turned out, but I really don't see a stong enough unity in your drawings of figures. Would you please like to do 30 minutes of 10 minute drawings. And furthermore, I feel that some of the foot proportions are off, for there is not enough weight in them. Why don't you please get more, more, more, and more elegance, energy, and appeal in the feet, as I pushed you further?

The reason why you'd do this drawing unity trick is because, it would and could help you out on drawing well-understood human anatomy, as a result of it helping you rendered memorized poses.

But wait, there's more!! The reason why you could work on the feet more is because, no hard feelings on the believablity on drawing them, just part of the process of learning how to draw and sketch anything. As a result, your poses of feet and hands will become even more, more, and more caricature and funny drawing of them.

Draw verbs, not nouns.

Good luck from me to you, and I hope you've found these completely and absolutely calculated to produce.
