10 min

Done as part of a practice session with poses of 10 minutes in length.

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

Hi, welcome! I'm so glad you're trying to learn to draw! It's the best! You did great with some of the perpective angles on this pose, but it looks a little stiff, and I can tell that you're paying a lot of attention to the outside shape of the pose, instead of the internal anatomy. You're on the right website for that, though! I highly recommend you check out the tutorial. It's only fifteen minutes long and teaches you a really great way to start practicing that has helped me a LOT. I also recommend you shorten your pose length, and do lots of poses in the 30 seconds to 2 minutes range, rather than spending ten minutes on one drawing. You'll get better practice, and you'll be able to get the overall shape of the pose down a lot better.


thanks for your feedback but which tutorial you talk about .????

it will help me cos i dont know much about the website is there is tutorial here some where ??

If you go to the opening page of the website (click the Line of Action Logo at the top right of the screen), there's a little turquoise rectangle that says "New here? Learn how to make use of these tools..." Then it goes to a simplified version of the drawing tool, which is the beginning of the tutorial. It's fifteen minutes long and excellent.

Definitely start with shorter timed drawings to get used to drawing the basic components of the human body. Although you did a pretty good job at capturing the overall proportions of the body.



First off: congratulations on beginning your art journey! It can be really daunting to start into any hobby, especially a creative one that takes so much perseverance to hone. Good luck with it :)!!

Secondly, I think a decent beginning point might be helpful for where you are. The human form is complicated, and can take a while to really get down, and that's made even more difficult when you're flying blind and aren't aware/employing fundamentals. So, I'd recommend you to check out some stuff on fundamentals in addition to any figure study you're doing!

This is a pretty good article that sums it up well in my opinion.

And here are some videos about form, as I find it particularly useful to keep in mind when doing figure studies: video 1 ,

Thank you for your time, I hope this is of any use to you :)!
