    Thank you all so much for your feedback and tips!

    @Salma66 Setting myself a shorter timer makes me think I get nervous and even more overwhelmed but I'll definitely try it and see if it helps me focus as well. I guess a lot is training as you said and leaving the comfort zone.

    @Polyvios Animations Are there any specific tutorial you would recommend? I know Proko on YouTube though I haven’t watched their videos in a while… Cartoony and expressive is exactly want I want to achieve.

    @Ai Neander That’s a great idea, I’ll definitely try that. Yeah, sometimes I listen to meditation music when I practice and after a few minutes it really becomes a calming and meditating state. It’s also much more fun that way. But it’s a really good advice to constantly check my awareness and keep assessing the drawing as a whole :)


    Hello, I’m new to this website and this is my first time posting.

    I just started deliberately practicing and study on a daily basis to get more flow and dynamic into my drawings. I wanna make sure I’m going in the right direction and actually improve? So here are some figure drawings I would love some feedback on.

    What I noticed is I always try to “feel” the pose and focus on the line of action, but the moment I start drawing I seem to get overwhelmed by details and find it hard to keep the body as a whole in mind…

    Also I get bigger the further I get and end up with a tiny head on massive legs :D

    Do you have any feedback or tips? Anything else I haven’t noticed yet?

    Thanks a lot!
