5 minute sketches

by Sharklotte, July 7th 2022 © 2022 Sharklotte

I haven't been drawing lately and want to get back to doing it regularly. I started today with some 5 minute full body poses. I'm still practicing overall proportions. Today I wanted to make sure there was room for necks! And I thought more about form. My legs tend to be too short, too so I'll work on that in the future.

For #5, I took a different approach and started with more of a gesture drawing, then emphasized energy lines and the figure filled out naturally. I'm really happy with it actually. Proportions are off but I'm pleased with the energy and form

Good morning, Sharklotte, and welcome back to LOA, how do you do? Great work on the speed and skill of your long gesture drawings of life figures. Keep working faster with your attitudes and action sketches, please.


I like the sixth drawing quite a bit. Very expressive.
