Older 1m croquis

Hello again, here's my older 1 minute croquis (quick sketch) here. The reason why I'd sketched it out is because, I really needed and really wanted to be the most slickest in my graphic shapes and lines. What do you think of this?


I would work on more defined lines, its a bit to scribbled to make out the form. But it still looks neat, abstract is a way to put it.

The main shapes are exaggerated and dynamic, but they get lost in the scribbles. It's you as the artist, that wants to communicate something. If you produce a bunch of lines and leave the viewer to sort out which ones are those who count, you aren't doing your job, and won't reach many viewers. Hasty lines that aren't clear at all achieve little.

There is also the question of balancing. You dive headlong into exaggeration, but completely leave proportions on the wayside. If you want to improve as an artist, you can't just solely concentrate on what is the easiest for you to produce, you also have to work to improve your weaknesses, or you will stay stuck without ever improving.

If you want to reach people with your drawings, work on proportions and clear lines!
