Done as part of a practice session with poses of 10 minutes in length.

My current goal is: Improve my shading and rendering of light

Joshua Chronstedt

Nice proportions and lighting. I think this one would be even better if you use long, flowing, confident lines and accentuate the lines closest to the viewer. Try drawing the shadows lightly as basic shapes before darkening them. Look into "bouce light".

That rendering of tones and lights on a nude figure was absolutely extraordinary and phenominal, AuntHerbert! Sensational. Sensationally great job!!

I have one smaller, tinier and little issue or problem with this sketch. I love most of the brushstrokes, but some of those brush lines are a bit farther too wigglier and more nervous, though it may be a bit intentional. Would you kindly loosen up your hands with 30 more minutes of 5 second pose warm-ups??? (all found on our custom timer on our drawing tools, such as figure studies)

As a result of this critique and request for improvement, then your lines will become the most cleanest, clearest, boldest, confident, longest and largest in every brushstroke of your brushpens and brushes. Besides, this 5 second warm-up would be quite useful, so the more you improve your myelin, then you'll be able to make your realistic sketches the most masterful and second nature.

Good luck to you, your goal, and I hope this advices helped you out the most.
