Just a warm up

Done as part of a practice session with poses of 2 minutes in length.

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

How do you do, Naima? So, greatest job on your display of exaggeration in motion of your pose sketches, but these lines of action all don't appear exaggerated and abstracted enough yet. How would you please stylize them the most with 4 additional hours of 19 second abstract attitudes?

The reader's digest version of this constructive criticism is so that you can help yourself to expand and diversify your visual libraries by going how farther you can push your myelin sheaths, not muscle memory. For most info, kindly pick up a copy of The Little Book of Talent, by Daniel Coyle, and Andrew Loomis' Fun With a Pencil. My hat's off to you and your current and future goals.


I'm having a lot of fun with the second book. Right now I 'm practicing outside to get some natural input. I will post my new fun theme, as soon as there is something to show. Thanks a lot for the inspiration!!


Hi Polivios, I will get to your advice tomorrow. Thanks for replying, I will work on expandng my visual libraries and yes I enjoy reading Coyle's book. Have a nice weekend.

Personally it's a strong warm up piece. I think you should try working on line quality and focusing and fludity of hand movements to avoid wavy lines.This was you should build confidence towards sketching and will overall help you sketch much quicker with a higher level of detail.


You hit a point with the wavy lines. Any suggestions how to ma nage them faster?
