A few of my landmark drawings. Enjoyed this one and definitely got more in the swing of things the more drawings I did (posted here from oldest to most recent). I definitely found the landmarks of the back the hardest to visualize. I would draw the PSIS, the delt and then being like "uhh ok, hard to see from here." Though I tried.

Submitting some of my beans. Some I tried to do pretty quickly. Some I tried to take my time with and thing of "as a finished piece" like Stan said in one of his critiques. Overall, pretty happy with these. Fun to do as warm-ups. Apologies, switched sketchbooks halfway through, so the last two are on gray paper.
Hello! Would greatly appreciate a critique. Attached some of my better ones here. Honestly feeling quite down on myself about these. Believe it or not, I would say I’m actually quite good at portrait drawing where i spend hours taking careful measurements and proportions, so these timed figures are kind of kicking my butt. To critique myself first: I feel like my proportions are just bad. Like i said, don’t do much figure work (hence the course), so I feel like my mental model of how long any given limb or section should be is totally off. I know that’s not the point of these drawings, but I feel like it’s dragging down the gesture of everything, specifically in the limbs. I feel like they’re constantly either too thin or too wide. I also feel like my lines are too hesitant and I suffer from going over the same line multiple times. Some of my better two minute poses were when I committed myself to only doing one line and just taking what I get (such as my ones in pen here). Very hard to strike the balance of proportion and fluidity on such a tight timetable. Would love to hear a critique. Hoping that my sense of proportion will get better as I move on with the course, thus increasing my sense of gesture. But as of now, feeling a bit deflated.
