Defensive pose

Done as the 10-minute final in a 30 minute class.

My current goal is: Reduce stiffness and make my drawings feel more dynamic, energetic, fluid.

First time posting. Please be gentle.

Hello and good evening, Robertncook. Nicest work on fluidity and rhythm in your figure drawing. Please keep on working hardest. Thank you and good night.




Thank you for pointing out the way that the balance is carried in the shoulders: I had consciously struggled with that element, which is part of why the arms have more detail than the legs. I can also see from my strokes that I placed the emphasis on the overlap of the muscles of the arms, but focused more on the volume (space / dimension) of the legs, which explains some of that incongruity. I will keep this in mind as I continue to practice, and I greatly appreciate your advice.
