Working title- "The Ritual Cleansing"

Crayon on paper.

An hour and a half challenge to compose and draw a figure in a setting.

I think the cartoon turned out well, but the composition still needs work. Any help with the narrative and other thoughts would be most appreciated.

Good evening, Jcmlfineart, and how are you doing? Greater work on your greater expression of color and mark-making and stylization on your nude figure drawing.

However, I'm not getting enough of the directness of the mark making. Please broaden up your line sketching with 90 more minutes of 30 second thumbnail practice poses, all flipped horizontally, then flipped vertically, later horizontally and vertically.

Because if you do this romp of quick sketching to gutsify your lines and graphic marks, then your stylization of curves vs. straights and variety of shapes or lines will get to be push farther to the max in your figures and hands and feet and faces and expressions. (even if you'll eventually result in a bunch of more abstract scribbles)

Hope this has been totally helpful and sweet dreams.
