Practice Sketch 5© 2022 Neurofarm
This was a 5-minute sketch in the practice round. I think I was trying too hard to get the form down, and not hard enough to actually grab the motion, which feels like an "S" to me.
There's a hint of the nude in this, from the original which was a nude.
Showing off skill isn't why I'm here--I'm a beginner who hasn't done hand sketching in 30 years. I mean, if you can recognize it, that's important, yeah. But I'm mostly looking for ideas about how to improve technique, so if you comment or critique this, that's what I'm after. If you can give me some ideas about what I might look for, that's exactly what I'm after: cultivating an artistic eye.
I'll consider the feedback as a whole, and if I can apply it constructively, I will.
Thanks in advance for your input!
