Done as part of a practice session with poses of 2 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

Polyvios Animations

Welcome to Line of Action, Alitd, and I'm Polyvios; Polyvios Animations; and how are you doing tonight, but great work on your first gesture drawing of your nude figure, but it doesn't look loose or seem loose enough to me. How would you like to loosen up your lines of the nudes with 5 minutes of 1 minute scribble poses? (60 seconds)

The reason why you could and should and would loosen up your nude body's lines of action and rhythm is because your basics of rendering figure studies will become less undertured and the most caricatured, yet what undertured is is like an underture, which is a drawing is less appealing or exaggerated than real people, places, or things. You know where I'd learned that term? I read it in John K.'s blog many years ago. Here is a link: Undertures, see?

Good luck to you and your marches of self-improvement
