the fluency is improving, but i feel that it needs more variety, some critique? thanks in advance
edit: oh, i forgot, they are 30 secFebruary 24, 2022 3:31pm #28200
Howdy, ViciousPony! Good afternoon, I'm Polyvios, how are you?! Sorry if I was a little too excited in my tone. Anyways, great job on your fluency and organicness of the lines and shapes. Way to go. I've got one small recommendation: I love how much freedom with a softer pencil, but I'm not getting enough of the rounded cartooniness in the poses. Would you please free yourself up with a wax crayon, like Crayola, with a 15 minute session of 29 second quick attitudes? (900 seconds/29 seconds=about 31 quick sketches) The reason why you could go ahead with this suggestion is because it can make your fluency more funky and looser in your sketching and your hands. For more details, be sure to look at this link right here: https://www.deviantart.com/damaimikaz/art/Sketchdump-February-2017-Dynamic-poses-665493616
Good luck, and I hope this link helps you out more.March 2, 2022 10:58am #28210
Hello Polyvios Animations, i sincerely appreciate that you have answered me.
I see, so i was missing that, i will apply it soon!March 3, 2022 6:22pm #28214
the fluidity in these are really nice !! the poses are very clear and energetic, i think the lack of variety you mentioned could be partly because of the torso and shoulder area? all of the poses you sampled are very static in that part, and maybe some extra exaggeration or definition in the form could help you achieve that goal. a youtube video that helped me with that personally was a video by Love Life Drawing, and another by Drawfee extra (i'll link both below) they talk a bit about how to simplify the pose into easier to comprehend 3D forms. i think 60 second studies might be helpful for practicing shorthands for these as well :)
what you have is already really good and i wish you well with your studies !!
