Done as part of a practice session with poses of 30sec, 2min ,5 min in length.

My current goal is: Improve at correctly capturing the overall proportions of the human form

Marvelous job on your sketches of bodies,JBLEE, however, I've got one small inquiry, why don't you loosen up your lines and shapes in another 61 1 minute sketches, pretty, pretty, pretty please, please, please??? The song and dance why is because, your line quality will have the most vitality, the most motion, and the most energy. Have faith and trust that it'll even more than bring off.

Looks pretty good, and very tight.

Which is exactly what I would critique. You are acurate to the contours; I don't see modeling (mass drawing/ shading) influencing the sketches.

I think drawing "through" the figure/ trying to draw "inside to outside" would help. Also, so would playing around with exageration.

You are good enough to be very careful and reproduce well. That's why I would say loosen up and "reproduce" less.

Long term it actually ups realism to mess around.


The top left and bottom right have great proportions. The main thing that stands out to me is that in the others the heads are somewhat small. In particular I think that the size of the heads + hair are about the size that the heads should be without the hair. The top right figure also looks somewhat warped - I think the perspective of the legs may have made it difficult to capture the proportions, so a little more attention to rendering the foreshortened left leg would help, and the upper torse also looks unbalanced. I would say that that figure in particular would benefit from more holistic development with more of a rough drawing underneath, as it can be difficult to keep proportions balanced when drawing different body parts in detail sequentially.
