Done as part of a 6 hour class.

My current goal is: Improve my justification of caricature of the overall proportions of the human form

Well, everybody, what do you think?

This very much lacks clarity, I like the messy style but it's hard to see what's going on, I would recommend working on creating more defined silhouettes. From what I can tell, the torso looks a little extruded compared to the legs, which look very wide and squat. I'm not sure of the model's proportions of course but it doesn't look correct for most humans. Make sure to draw the underlying structures and make sure the proportions are correct before you start on the silhouette. I'd recommend using your pencil or fingers to compare the distances between things to ensure that your drawing is as accurate as it can be.

Try focusing on form and building up the figure whilst also limiting your colohr palette. As the colourd can seem cluttered and at a glance seem like a large blob of mix-matched colours. Working through form and limiting your pallete will help develop shading and a better intuition of colour placement to construct form.

Yup, Frozen Cog, sounds or seems practical but useful, but it'll be worth a try.
