Done as part of a 30 minute class.

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


Jaybobdoodles, you are on the right track with your drawings !
I noticed that your poses are a bit rigid and static. To improve them, I recommend exaggerating the curves and not hesitating to extend your lines. Additionally, by adding construction lines to your drawings, you'll have a solid foundation for your compositions.

A trick for working on proportions is to divide the vertical line representing the overall height into several parts, using the rule of "one body = 8 heads". By practicing this method, you'll be able to find your own landmarks and deconstruct images to represent them in simple, measurable shapes.

-Draw a vertical line that represents the overall height of your character.
-Divide this line in half, with the upper part representing the torso and the lower part representing the legs.
-Divide the torso once again, the upper half representing the chest or the bottom of the breasts.
-Finally, divide the upper segment once more, and you'll get the height of your head.

In conclusion, I'm sure that if you continue to persevere and use these tips, you'll see a significant improvement in your drawings. Good luck !
