Deadline: Submit by 1/15/2024 for a chance to be in the critique video! ??? I love time travel, but I'm not very good at it.

I’m taking a break from critiques Hey, everyone! Many of you know me from critiquing student work here in the Proko community. Now, I need to tell you that I’ll be taking a long break from the “critiquer” job. It’s for a good reason: I was recently approved on a PhD program, which will be a very important next step in my career, and this new endeavor should require a lot of focus, time and energy from me over the coming years. I’ve been collaborating with Proko since 2018 and it’s always been a blast. I’ve always been proud to be a part of this worldly renowned hub for art lessons, and I’ve also always felt extremely valued and professionally respected by everyone on the team. I’m glad to see that the Proko website has grown beautifully to become a self-sustaining community and I’m truly grateful and honored for having been one of the people entrusted with the opportunity of contributing with it over the past few years. For all that, my deepest thanks to Stan, Sean, Kimberly, everyone else in the Proko team, and, of course, to each and everyone of you, students/artists whom I shared insights, feedback and guidance with. I bet I learned much more than I could teach. For all of you, as you keep learning and unraveling your unique artistic journeys, I wish you all the best of luck and a bright future with all the cool ideas, true excitement and youthful fun that great art is made of. Whenever possible, I’ll still check in once in a while to say Hi. Warmest hugs. ~Liandro

2024/1/1. Hi everybody. This illustration was a part of a work I made a week ago more or less. I beg your pardon for posting it here since is not exactly a figure drawing. I hope you don't mind too much. Thanks.

I spent 20 min for each, maybe I drew a bit too many details 😅. But it was fun!

I did a few more. These are exercises I do on a semi-regular basis. You can never be too good at boxes and cylinders.

Back to basics - rewatched some of prokos videos on the figure on YT. It’s been a while since I’ve done these exercises. 1min beans, 2mins robo beans, and 5mins and 10mins adding a bit of structure. It’s a bit messy so I’ll need to practice these concepts again. Especially need to practice getting clean lines and starting with the gesture even for the longer pose. Still, it was good to get into it again. Charcoal pencil on paper.

I went through and did some quick gestures to figure out the poses a bit first...then went back to the ones I found most interesting to solidify the structure with blocks and cylinders... I haven't done this for a while and some of the poses had some tricky spots...I think that I need to do this more often.

Ah structure - finally all of my boxes are paying off! Had a bunch of fun with this session - about 15m per piece. Looking forward to seeing everyone's work!

I tried to start with some force lines and find some rhythms, then put cubes and boxes over that. Even tried the pelvis structure- that thing hurts my brain. I would like to do more but I’m already up way past my bedtime. 12,17 minutes.

I was desperate today:C.. I set the timer for 30 minutes and kept going for another 5 -15 minutes for Robo Bean and figure. This assignment is very complex but also absolutely necessary in order to understand the forms and perspectives, I really need to study, especially the joints- I was totally lost with those…and avoided them not very elegantly ;) (charcoal pencil on paper)
