Blind contour study in graphite, focus on proportion and gesture.

Great job on your blind contour study, ysolla, way to go so far, so good.

Well, I feel and think that some of the outlines (contours) are the teensiest bit too rigidest, or stiffest for my taste. Would you please work slowly, yet quickly, yet funniest with a 5 minute blind contour of any figure study?

The reason why you would and could do this suggestion is because, your observation will become the most gestural, and the most caricatured in your contour sketches.

My hat's off to you, and I hope you'll find this completely and totally informative.

Thanks so much for the advice.

I really loosened up while drawing tonight and was really happy with what I produced. Much more expressive.
