Hey. I did some 2 min and 10 min sketches. For a few of them, I gave them an additional 10 mins because I was curious where they would go.

10-20 min structure drawings. Some of these I got caught up on detail, others I think I very successful. I sometimes tried to create a through line of gesture, structure, and moving into a more developed drawing when I felt like it was going good. But that did lead to some of them being a too unstructured, or demonstrating structure in my opinion. I'd like to do one of the portraits later.

I wanted to spend the day locking in gains from previous lessons, and experiment a little on trying to "paint" or "chisel" more with graphite. Also trying to figure out what a "finished" drawing looks like to me now. Did have fun and found more areas needing improvement and some new ideas to try.

I am looking at these afterword to assess them for stuff I'm doing wrong. This one was bothering me a lot and I couldn't see why. I realized I didn't model the lips at all. It didn't fix everything but it improved it a lot.

Various 3 min and and a 5 min study. I did feel like some of the gestural lessons from yesterday were helpful from becoming too stiff.

I did a variety 90 sec, 3 min, and 5 min gestures. Never felt like I became fluid enough. Also tried drawing figures in different sizes to see if it would loosen my hand up. I did notice my vision start to shift to rhythms first, but I think I will have to start doing gesture on a regular bases to "get it" better. There's some nice shapes here and there throughout though.

I can't recall the last time I ever drew armor. I was/ am attempting an ink one. If it turns out alright, I'll post it up.

A really challenging day. These were all 10 mins that I took further to 20, 30 and 60 mins prospectively after I struggled so much with the back pose. Interior details need remeasured and values need some better organization. I took some notes for later. I enjoyed today none-the-less. Hope everyone else is doin' good.

Did 4, 5 min poses. Then I wanted to know what a 5 min portrait would look like, and try to stay away from detail like yesterday. Then a 10 min portrait that I took to 1 hour. Tried to keep the interesting detail to the slight diagonal of the front of the model's face. Found making choices within an hour hard at times.

One more. The structure of the eyes are wobbly, the cranium is slightly too small, but there's some energy to it I suppose. In all the portraits I really had to fight going into too much detail. I appreciated the time constraint revealing that.

Marshall hands. I wanted to make a page of hands that additionally focus on the whole page's composition to correct for the mistake I made with placing things yesterday. The middle and lower four are 10 mins, the upper right is 5 mins, and the thumbs up hand in the upper left is 25 mins. I erased and redrew it 4 times. I just wasn't getting it for some reason so I slowed down and kept started over.
