5 min female

Done as part of a 30 minute class.

My current goal is: Develop my own signature drawing style (advanced)

Love the movement in the hips. This piece has a lot of feeling. Really like the lines in the left arm and fingers. Great job. Keep working on that style.


The arm should be a bit shorter and skinnier to become proportionate to the body size

Me encantó, la manera en la que expresas tus lineas en el cuerpo y en la ropa es increible.

this good it looks like a female and I actually can see what I'm drawing


Cool ink style! I would note the length of her arm in comparison to the length of her leg. Her arm looks too long to me. This can happen when one part of the body is of more interest to you than the rest. We tend to draw bigger what we're focused on. Keep up the good work!

Great job on your ink brush work, AuntHerbert. Way to go on your stronger stylization of the posing and drawing.

Again, I feel that your brush work is a teensy bit timid and not enough gutsiness in these lineworks. Would you please work more quickly, by timing yourself with 2 more hours of 30 second quick scribble pose drawings to warm and loosen yourself up? (all flipped horizontally and/or vertically, and with/without grayscales, for values, or lights and shadows.) (120 x 60/30/5, 7200/30 seconds/5, 240 drawings/5 days=48 sketches a day)

As as result, your signature pose drawing style will become the least stiff and rigid, and the most dynamic, vital, energetic, fluid, lively, spontaneous and alive in your lines of action and rhythm.

Good luck, and stay happy and safe.
