Work is finished, but critues are welcome. We can always get better right?

All the best,

Nicest work on your figure rendering in water-soluble wax crayon, or whatever, in terms of how subtly you've altered the forces of the figure. However, the mark-making still seems a bit far too self-conscious in your execution. How would you like to go for 5.5 hours of 15 second figure sketching warm-ups, all from blind gesture drawings, and with almost half the label peeled off from your crayons to get the more broader strokes? (19,800/15=1,320 scribblier poses) The reason why you could, would and should do this solid good bit of constructive critique is of two different things:

1) To get more density and vitality and energy in your strokes.

2) To help you draw more to what you see, not to some formula.

The more you loosen up even more, the more broader your caricatured poses and portraits can and will become. For even more info, please look into the PDF of the Vilppu Drawing Manual here, and this video on gesture drawing basics right down there.

Good luck, and thanks for your post tonight.
