Awesome and excellent job on your portrait done in mechanical pencil, txWilliep. Love how much you took your time on all your forms and attention to details.

So, if I could provide you with a completely and totally honest appraisal, it that I think that your pose is definitely, positively and absolutely on the right track. I feel like that your gesture could use just a little bit most work. Would you please kindly be able to loosen up your hands with a 10 minute pose????

The reason why you should and would do this suggestion is because, if your goal is to make your human anatomy the least stiffest, and the most dynamic, energetic and fluid, then I suggest you go ahead and be defintely, completely, totally and absolutely on board with it.

My hat's off to you, good luck and cheers to you and your goals, and I hope these links are helpful, encouraging and informative.

Thank you again for critiquing my drawing. The lead in the pencil was HB, 2B & a little 4B. The work was done on only the front of the page. The back was clean. The portrait group was 9 people. The model was posed and was not changed during the session. The session lasted from 10 AM to 1 PM with the procedure being 20 min pose and then 6 min break. There was not any 10 min poses. Once set that was what it was for the duration. The models frequently forgot how their hands were placed and feet were placed. We were doing a portrait of the individual. Yes, I did do a lot of detail in the portrait. I have a whole sketchbook full of portraits.

The links you provided did not work for me. L-o-A said they could not find the pages.
