    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. 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.


    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.


    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?: 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.


    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.


    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.


    Bravo, Htlaps.

    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.


    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:

    So, good luck, and I hope you'll find these and you've found those completely and totally useful.


    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.


    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:

    Good luck to you, and I hope you've found these definitely useful and helpful.


    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.


    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.


    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.

    Cheers, Majav!!


    Nice work on your quicker 30-90 second poses, that's the way to go.

    Again, I feel a little bit of rigidity in some of the LOA (Line of Action) quick gestures. Why don't you please work on giving your lines and forces more than enough freedom of organic lines and shapes, thru 60 minutes of 60 second poses??? (60 drawings)

    The reason why is because, it can help you out on not only your drawing quality, but on the overall speed, and inherent output, you know?

    If you wanna and need to see more of this, look at that link: It has an important exercise on one, that's extremely useful to your creativity and artistry.

    So I say, good luck, and cheers to you.


    Say, these quick sketches, 30 second, are totally striking, starwave. That's very spontaneous. (Even the 1 minute poses)

    I've got one idea of improvement: I love how much freedom of lines in your half-a-minute sketches, but if you're new here on this site, they have a little bit of rigidity in the perception of edges. Why don't you please loosen up your hands, with Crayola crayons, on notebook paper, with 35 minutes of 30 second drawings?? (2100 seconds/30 secs=70 quick sketches of bodies, all with your whole shoulder, instead of your wrist)

    The reason is because, it can and shall aid you in making visual communications, with the bold strokes, done very lightly first, and to spend less time of the details.

    For more vital details, be sure to look at this drawing tutorial from Youtube.

    This has some related info that's applicable to anything and everything.

    My hat's off to you.


    Nice work on your Lv. 1 study, indeed. I love how much you've used blocky forms to make the pelvis and ribcage perfectly read.

    However, I've got one little idea: I am getting a little bit too much rigidity in the blocky spaces. Why don't you make these forms positively organic and natural in your next warm-ups, though 34 minutes of 30 second quick drawings, from Marc Brunet's video as reference. (2040/30=68 loose and scribbly sketches for anatomy)

    The reason why is because, you'd be able to make your form drawings less undertured and more cartoony in your next round. I have don't have lots of time to tell you what underture is, but here is this link to help you get the big picture.

    So, good luck, and cheers to your next studes.
