Day 27, Actual improvement?

by Starcursedmass, November 9th 2021 © 2021 Starcursedmass

Done as part of a 30 minute class.

Well, it's not great, but it's better than before. Training the eyes for measurement, and roughing out the torso with shapes helps a lot. I'll have to keep practicing these ideas.

My current goal is: I don't know! I am an absolute beginner; I'm here to study the basics of rendering, stay consistant with practice.

I'm impressed, Starcursed. I am in love with your lines of action and line control and quality. Great job on all of those and more.

Again, I feel a little bit too much of the coldness of the edges of the lines of rhythm. Would you kindly be okay with 2 hours of 24 second loa poses of the figure studies, using out custom session or your custom timer? (7200 seconds/24 seconds=300 doodles of figure drawings and bones)

As long as you do this here important custom practice warm-up, your lines of action and rhythm will be able to be the most lightest, most loosest, and the most liveliest than ever before! For more info, be sure to look up the Nancy Beiman Animation book.

Good luck, my hat's off to you, and I hope you've found these completely and absolutely helpful.


You've really captured the pose on the lower right! My art instructor had us focus on hands and feet to give us confidence; you might include practice on these as well as faces preparatory to adding more detail.


If you don't mind me asking, how many hands/feet/faces did your instructor have you draw per session?


It depended on the day/session, but for the week's homework it was usually 3-5 of each (in a dynamic, not stiff pose).

For example, you might try a daily 30min "class" here on LoA plus one really detailed every day or so for a week...

Also, Proko (you can search for his tutorials) has some pretty good ones on hands as I recall.
