Thank you, good advice. Currently working on the everchanging bean idea along with Stan. I keep filling sheets with them. It will be a while before I can draw them out in one swoosh though.

I like the overall drawing and detail you've shown and (muscle callouts). She looks like she is lifting the weight. Is the drawing from a reference photo, I ask because the throat looks to be a bit farther out in the larynx area. What do you think?

Hello! I'm pretty new to drawing. This set is from today -- the first 2 images are 30s and the last 3 are 2m. I've been struggling to get the 2m ones done in time. Feedback would be appreciated!

Great start, are these pencil or ? Beginning drawing is all about practice and getting instuctions from Stan. I'd start with the Figure Drawing Fundamentals course by @Proko worth every penny spent. Draw every day is the best advice.

I think you are in the process of learning to see. It takes a while to get it. Try looking at your drawings you made with the idea of seeing the bits of action that look okay. That's progress a bit at a time. Keep drawing when you can, watch Stan's videos and practice along with him.

Here is my attempt to twist the figure like the photo. The photo was reduced more to shapes. The drawing in the middle was 40 minutes and the outside practice frames 2 minutes. Suggestions welcomed.

Right now, I'm looking at a melody of art videos including Stan's Figure drawing course, Force Drawing gestures and others. They all have their benefit for the beginning artist (me) with positive thoughts on what I do wrong now, encouraging correction and then what is possible with practice and determination. @Joseph Osley is correct about Proko's Figure Drawing Fundamentals course. I signed up during Christmas 12-day sale and now determined to watch and draw a lesson a day. Of course, the truth is like anything else, today's video done, next day done, then back a day because I missed something and watch again. It revolves around what @Gannon Beck had mentioned, (daily drawing).

Lots of practice and doing your fundamentals are key to finding out if drawing is right for you. It's never a deal breaker to have fun and that's what art making is all about. Take time to view and follow Stan's instructions! In time you will have your beautiful pictures to be proud of.

I liked this challenge, this being the last day of 12 Days of Proko. I want to thank the folks at PROKO for their excellent resources and livestreams. I'm encouraged to continue. Charcoal on newsprint.

This was a great challenge. Okay (Me), remember cylinders, boxes, Loomis head and execute in perspective in 10 minutes per photo. I left the eraser marks on because I wanted to see what was wrong and correct the direction to go. These are Charcoal on newsprint. Stan's videos on the mannequin construction were very helpful giving me clear instructions on what to look for when drawing. More practice is definitely warranted.

I like the portrait, would encourage you to finish out the upper and lower part of the shoulder and upper chest area. My eye wants to finish it, but maybe that's you intended make it.

I didn't get to draw as much as I wanted yesterday but I did do this. Used these colored alcohol markers for the first time in a while, and used this vellum Bristol paper for the first time. This took around 45 minutes but sadly I didn't finish all that I wanted to in that time frame, oh well.

The witch of Endor called a spirit up. This is charcoal on newsprint plus photoshop brush work on the right side. I need more practice, just had to get it down and out of my head.

Here's my facial expression from "Dark Melody of Madness" pulp magazine. I decided to go out of my comfort zone and use color markers on newsprint about 45 minutes. This again was great and I truly enjoyed the experience.

The challenge for me was getting the forms of each picture as I saw them, as you can see, I will keep practicing. I set up the timer for 20 min each, these are pen on newsprint.

Charcoal on newsprint, 10 min each. More practice will help here, it was fun though. The timer is great for not getting distracted.
