Done as part of a 1 hour class.

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

Hello, this is my first upload for the 1 hour figure drawing class. I honestly dunno what I'm doing other than this is just an exercise and a stepping stone to a completed drawing. So how did I do?


First of all, I think the painting is good, and the general proportions of the human body are quite accurate, but there are some subtleties (not details) that require more practice.

Secondly, what I admire most is your courage. Painting is a game for the brave, and courage is definitely the undisputed first step in painting and the prerequisite for improvement.

Finally, I suggest putting more energy into training within "2 minutes" or "

Thanks for the words of encouragement KLFJ! Yeah the subtleties of the human body does elude me. Hard to capture for a beginner. What sucks is I can see it, but my hand just can't replicate what I see.

I'll post the 2 minutes ones later since the sketchbook I used to do this exercise is too small and I'm on my phone right now and uploading through my phone is kind of a pain.
