2mins handdrawing to reduce stiffness and getvclearer lines

Say, Naima! Nice job on your range of action and gesture, spaces, and forms of your hands poses, but I'm not totally getting enough of the exaggeration of the loose lines, yet how would you like to free up your hands, elbows, and shoulders with 4 hours of 20 second quick loose sketches of hands? (3600 x 4/20= 14,400/20=720 scribbles of hands and claws, but with 3 10 minutes of breaks sprinkled thru-out)

The reason why you could and should take a chance on this critique is because it can, shall, and in the future, will have helped out but supported your current goal. The more faster your scribbles you grind out, the myelins will be the most spontaneous, lively and vital. Hope these have been totally, definitely, absolutely, and furthermore positively beneficial.

Superb linework there!! great work on these hands, Naima. I've little suggestions for improvements as i feel this is nearly perfect, but next time might i suggest trying to capture some of the values aswell? my only criticism is that i suggest a more lighter job on the linework in the skin creases along the knuckles may help with the hand coming out more realistic, and as always, try to add more value in general when you have the time with sketches! it''ll help you establish a better understanding of their form. keep it up!!


yThank you for the percise critique on the knuckles, I will try to improve. Adding value seems to be a hard thing; because I always feel I'n cheating the pure lines. Means I am not advanced enough to add shading.
