First I've actually done and completed. Hoping to make this a habit and get better.

Done as part of a 30 minute class.

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

Polyvios Animations

Amazing work! Skylit, that first post shows some of the more amazing promise so far in my book. Great job on your proportions and angles, and their perceptions. Way to go!!

So, if I was to suggest a little nitpick for you, or two of 'em, they would be that: 1) Some of the lines in the longer 10 minute pose is a teensy bit too itchiest and scratchiest. 2) Some of the hand proportions are a bit too off, except for the hand spaces and edges.

Now let's move on to suggestions: 1) Would you please be looser and boldest with your line quality with the 10, 5, 2 and 1 minute, and 30 second poses? 2) Would you kindly be the loosest and lightest with the hand and foot drawings with 30 minutes of 30 second quick hands and feet?? (1800/30=60 sketches)

The two logic reasonings why are because: First of all, to make your lines the least itchiest and scratchiest, and the most cleanest, quickest and smoothest. And second of all, to help you improve your hand and foot studes for your figure drawings.

Good luck to you and your goal.


Thank you so much for this comment! I really appreciate this imformative reply. This is my first time receiving any type of critique and I found this helpful! I always knew I could improve dramatically in areas, but this has been so helpful as to where I can start focusing!

Again thank you very much for this!
