    All of the people are highly recognizeable! I knew which model you were working from immediately with each face. That's quite the achievement, so congrats on that!

    I think playing with line weights might add some additional movement and energy to your drawings, maybe that's something you could try a little more of in a future practice session. :)

    Thanks! I've been mostly out these past two weeks running an event, but I'm back and kicking yet more spammer butt.

    Oh, thanks for the hint on where to look for that! I'll see if I can track it down :)

    Huh, I see the hover has somehow stopped working. I will work on this today :)

    It looks like you're having some good success with identifying the line of action in a short amount of time. I think from here, I would move to class mode (such as the half hour session) and start trying to add some volume to your line skeletons. See what other lengths of time yield you. :)

    Right now, using the 360 degree viewer doesn't record as time practiced.

    I feel like sometimes it should, but on the otherhand, sometimes I'm not really practicing with it, I'm just looking at how the body shapes change as they go around without actually putting pencil to paper (or stylus to tablet.)

    I thought I would throw it to the community: Do you all feel that having the 360 degree viewer open should count toward pratice time? Yes? No? Some of the time? If some of the time, how do we decide when it does and when it doesn't?

    Open to hearing all suggestions and view points on this :)

    Hi there! I'm way behind on adding this, but it's in the development path (along with a general expansion of other class mode tips) for 2022. :) I'm glad you found the tutorial & stuff in class mode for figures useful!

    You can't drag files from your computer into the forums here. You'll need to put it up on an image hosting site like imgur, or put it in your sketchbook: https://line-of-action.com/art/add

    My pleasure. The link lives on the home page, beneath the "scenes and environment drawing" block. It's a big teal rectangle that reads "New here? Learn how to make use of these tools to become a better artist."

    You certainly don't always have to use class mode, of course, and can pick whatever interval makes the most sense for the one particular exercise you DO have time for. :) I know I do.

    I went ahead and made finding the tutorial more "in your face" for users who haven't yet unlocked the "completed tutorial" achievement as well, so hopefully more people find it when they are new. I know for a fact you aren't the only one who missed it initially!

    Hi there! I'd definitely start by going through the tutorial. Just hit the "get drawing" button on this page to be walked through: https://line-of-action.com/learn-to-draw

    It should take you about 15 minutes, and I think you'll find yourself much less panicky when faced with short intervals for warmups. :)

    Hi NORkaky,

    Were you trying to link to images that are stored directly on your own computer?

    Please don't give out passwords to anyone for any reason! It is not safe. I am sure we can figure out how to post without resorting to that :)
