Kybao, great work on your display of promise and potential of those nudes here. Well, if I could suggest a critique, it would be that some of the lines are a bit too itchy-scratchy to my tastes. Would you suggest yourself an interactive drawing tutorial here on this website? Here's a link:Tutorial
The reason why you could do this is because, the first one would and could be able to help and allow you to draw stronger C-curves for your lines of action, especially your 5-30 second quick studies.
Take care, and get healthy and safe.May 17, 2021 10:03pm #27125
Great job on your 30 1 minute poses, Stefan. Way to go!!
Again, I'm not feeling enough freedom and confidence in the lines of action and their flow. Would you please be more broader and wider, with 60 more 29 second sketches of all figure studies? (all horizontal and/or vertical)
The reason why you would do this idea is because of two reasons:
1) To get into the perception of edges, the right-side of the brain, all in quick sketches
2) To help you have some fun with the lines of rhythm of the spines and limbs.
For some more inspiration, please check out and download this image here:

My hat's off to you, and I hope you'll find these completely and totally practical to your goal.1May 17, 2021 9:39pm #27124
Great job on your Deltoids, Legacy!
I have a great idea for a criticism. I love how much range of expression you've got on your deltoid muscles, but I'm not getting enough range of cartooning and caricature of your observations on the deltoid studies. Would you please kindly free up and express yourself even far more, with 60 minutes of 29 second drawings of quick muscles? (3600 seconds/29=124 deltoid scribbles)
The reasons why:
1) To help your muscles less stiffer and undertured, and more caricatured and exaggerated and cartoony.
2) To aid and abet (if you pardon my language) to make your muslces less rigid, and more animated, vital, and energetic.
Here are some influential images:

So, good luck to you.May 15, 2021 4:25pm #27111
Good job on all of your pages, AuntHerbert. Atta-girl! Way to go!
Say, if you could suggest you to your own mini-goals, then it would be that the lying pose in drop-dead phenominal, it has one issue, the line-weights are a teensy-weensy bit too rigid. (the weights of them are consistently bold and dimensional) Would you please work with your elbow while you work with your brush, ink, and brush pen? With 2 hours of 30 second quick bodies, all flipped horizontally and/or vertically, and/or grayscale?? And while you're at it, check out this image below:
But, wait. There's more!!! Check out this link here, for your M. Busch sketches and final illustrations for you to bookmark, reading list, and download images from.https://andreasdeja.blogspot.com/2012/08/wilhem-m-busch-1979.html But that's not all, download those images too, for you to grayscale, flip, and/or rotate for your drawing exercises.
The reason why is because, piggybacking to your 3rd objective: In order to be more disciplined with that, would you please time yourself with the Timer+ app, or the Timer section of your Clock app on your iPhone or iPad Pro, or iPod Touch? Because, it could help you do a lot of bad drawings, and bad scribbles with no pressure, even if you're gonna tear holes into your papers. I hope you've found these advices totally and absolutely useful.May 14, 2021 9:58pm #27108
Well, well, Sonnemaker, I must admire your 30 second-1 minute quick sketches, cause they're on the right track in terms of action and acting.
In the meantime, my critique is that your forms are a bit too wobbly and loose, despite the forces are a bit more bolder and broader, and overplaid. Would you kindly construct out the lines and spaces with 30 minutes of 2 minute quick attitude drawings? (15 of 'em)
The reason is as a result, you'd be able to improve your understanding of your body constructions and silhouettes, and lines of action. Good luck to you, and I hope you've found these completely and defintely beneficial.May 14, 2021 9:47pm #27107
Well, well, well, Htlaps, I must say that your quick drawings and sketches of faces and expressions are on the right track, as facial anatomy goes.
So, if I could provide you something, like a critique, for instance, that I'm not getting enough holistic animation in those faces and facial expressions. Would you please broaden and widen up your quick sketching with 45 minutes of 30 second sketches of our website's facial features and expressions, and images from this link here?: https://johnkstuff.blogspot.com/2009/07/cartoony-disney.html All flipped horizontally and/or vertically, and all downloaded from this link?? (45 x 60/30, 2700/30=90 quick cartoonies of different faces)
The testament why you would do this thing is because, though it could be a really great remedy for your same-face, it can support you in completely cutting loose and expressive in your quick animated gestures and slightly cartoonier expressions and emotions. Cheers, and I hope you've found these completely and totally insightful.May 12, 2021 8:38pm #27097
N2l, I think you're doing great on your 110 second sketches, and I really feel that you're on the right track in the quick sketches, when it comes to the figure drawings. I must say, in order to critique your work, I totally think your poses are a bit much too stiffer. Would you please loosen up your broad strokes from the head to the toes, with 30 minutes of 90 second quick poses? (1800/90=20 poses)
The reason why you would and could do this idea is as a result, your spines will become the less the stiffer, and all the dynamic, energetic, and vital gestures in the cartoon figures.
Good luck to you, and cheers.May 8, 2021 9:00pm #27086
Well, well, well, WEREWOKE, I must do say that your quick sketches; the 30 seconds, especially; are definitely on the right track.
Well, in the much nearer future, I must advice that your 30 seconds are getting almost enough of forces in the acting, actions, and feelings, but I really need to see more of them. Would you kindly exaggerate your C and S curves in your 150 minutes of 29 second quick drawings of figure studies? (150 x 60/29, 9000/29=310 doodles of figure drawings, all flipped horizontal or vertical)
The reason why you would and should do this little bitty suggestion is because, to reduce the stiffness in your C- and S-curves, and to really make them more dynamic, energetic, fluid, and lively. So, keep up the good job, and we hope you'll get to do some exceptionality.May 6, 2021 4:27pm #27083
Just for future reference, I love all of your animal pictures, but I'm not getting enough vitality and feeling in the edges. Would you please free up your lines to be just a little bit more cartoony and expressive, with 30 minutes of 44 second sketches, through our custom timer in the Animals drawing tool? (1800 seconds/44=41 pictures)
The reason why is as a result, like I said, less stiffer mammals, and more dynamic, energetic, and fluid edges and shapes and spaces of them.
So, good luck, cheers, and farewell.May 4, 2021 8:46pm #27071
I really think your detoid studies are getting on the right track, Legacy55, and I feel like you're getting there.
To answer your question, as far as the moving deltoids go, here is a YouTube video right down here:
Would you please watch and study this video? Oh, furthermore, could you please take screen shots of this one cropped on the video's size, just for reference??
The arguement is as a result, they are totally useful for your quick sketch studies, for 10 minutes of 30 second quick studies, all flipped horizontally and/or vertically, and/or grayscale, on your computer.
The other reason why is because, you'd be able to be more faster and confident in your muscle line quality and control, and consistency.
For some extra credit, should you please be sure to look at this link of Eliot Goldfinger Human Anatomy PDF: https://www.scribd.com/doc/106203113/Eliot-Goldfinger-Human-Anatomy-for-Artists-the-Elements-of-Form
So, good luck, and I hope you'll find these and you've found those completely and totally useful.May 1, 2021 6:04pm #27059
Well, Qbicc, I have to say something about your current work myself. I feel that your proportions are a bit on the stiff side, and think they are getting on the right track. Why don't you please draw out your proportions with loose, light, long, large, and lively lines of action and rhythm, through 147 more minutes of 30 second sketch warm-ups, for 6 days, all flipped vertically, on your drawing tools? (If you can have access) (147 x 60/30/6, 8820/30/6, 294/6=49 a day)
The reason why you could do this suggestion, is because of two things: First of all, to help you out on your observations, and second to aid you on getting your kissing the surface technique, with your charcoal and newsprint, or related things.
If you would be able to incorporate these into your current goal, then I'd allowed and encouraged you to go with these. Good luck, and I hope you've found these practical, encouraging, and concrete.May 1, 2021 4:48pm #27058
Welcome aboard, Wendigo.
Say, I must really love the amount of potential your quick drawings have to offer. Nice job on your stylized drawings.
Well, if I was to suggest you a critique, I must say that though the idea and energy are there, in the Office Space sketch, but the lines and shapes are a bit stiff for my tastes. Why don't you please, take the office space sketch, and practice loosening yourself up with that sketch, plus with 5 minutes of 30 second sketches? (10 practice drawings)
The reason why you would do this is because, of this video here:
This is the video with Chuck Jones, WB Animator, Director, and Designer, on Getting Started. There, he talked about that teacher at Chouinard Art Institute (now Cal Arts) called Francois Murphy. Francois said, "every one of you birds has 100,000 bad drawings in you. The sooner you get rid of 'em, the better it'll be for everybody!"
Another reason why you could do this is as a result, your cartoon drawings will have less stiffness and more dynamism, vitality, and energy. Not to mention the fact that it's perfectly natural that your sketches will be all the more scribbly, but that's OK, you're just here to help yourself improve, innovate, and most importantly, have fun with it.
If you're new on this website, (if you haven't already) look at the link to this online drawing tutorial link here: https://line-of-action.com/learn-to-draw
Good luck to you, and I hope you've found these definitely useful and helpful.April 30, 2021 9:00pm #27056
Nicest job on all your hands, Majavhv, very well observed and felt.
I absolutely adore all of your quick sketches, especially your 30 and 60 second drawings, but if I was to critique them, it would be that a few of these hand poses are a bit too on the rigid side. Why don't you please loosen up the flow and organicness of those sketches, by going thru 145 minutes of 30 second warm-up hands, all on 18x24 newsprint or related pad, all for 5 days? (145 x 60/30/5, 8700/30/5, 290/5=58 scribble hands a day)
The reason is, as mentioned above, you'd be able to draw loosest, lightest. largest. longest, and liveliest lines of action and rhythm for your hands and feet.
Here is the video below.
And here's another, for inspiration:
Cheerio, and I hope you've found these generally useful and practical and detailed.April 25, 2021 8:20pm #27030
Nice try on your post, bugorama, but I really don't see any of your first ever images here on Line of, why don't you please put up all very clickable and downloadable images of what you're currently working on, please with sugar on it?
The reason why is because, the lot of us would and could be able to see what you're showing and telling.
good luck and cheers.April 23, 2021 10:45pm #27026
Majavhv, your quick sketches, 30 secs and 1 min are still amazing. Great work on 'em.
I just wanna say, I really need you to draw more broader and wider strokes in these faces for 60 minutes of 29 second quick sketches of expressions???? (3600 seconds/29 sec=roughly 124 quick studies of facial expressions and features)
The reason why is because, your hands will be able to help you visualize those faces and expressions much better and quickly.
