Day 1

Done as part of a 1 hour class.

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

Polyvios Animations

Good afternoon, Des84, allow me to introduce myself. I'm Polyvios, how are you? Great work on your recording of the overall proportions of the human forms. Great use of balance of body parts. However, I think that some of the angles and relationships don't look or seem like they move more strongly enough. Would you please work from your elbow and shoulder with a 30 minute class mode of the figures? (especially with the quick 10 minutes of 30-60 second poses) As a result, your straight v. curves relationships will be pushed even further in your lines of action, balance, and rhythm. Also, your forms and proportions will become more appealing and more pleasurable to look at. Here's this video, for further details, if you really haven't already.https://www.

Good luck, and I hope these tips and hints have supported and helped you out greatly.

I like when people draw the line of action and the shapes to make it easier to undestand the proportions. The note taking helps a lot too. You should try to draw faces, hands and feet new time. Overall it's really good!

I think you did very well with comprehending the poses and general gestures! The fact that you were note-taking and analyzing your own work is also great! One thing that I struggled with a lot (and still do) at the beginning of practicing proportions is the size of the torso. I think paying attention to and really trying to get the correct length of the torso will really help your drawings as it did with mine! Once you get the torso down, it's easier to gauge the length and size of the legs and arms, and it will make your drawings seem less "blocky". I hope this helps! Great job so far!!
