Second attempt at the pear after watching Proko's instructions. Pencils were 2H HB 2B 4B.

Tried the pear. I think the simplification went well. Not so sure on the shading, I was working with 2H HB 2B and 4B pencils but I think it came out flat and lacks the roundedness the pear shows in the reference images.

Sorry for the poor quality, image and paper lol. I feel fairly confident in my understanding of 30 second poses, but the 2 minute ones have me stumped.

Back when I was first starting to learn gesture I had the same issue with two minute poses. Thing is as you further study the other lessons you'll begin to intergrate what you've learned into your gesture. :) What you have here are expressive and fairly readable. Good work.

My studies into balance. Some went well I think and some others I think need more work. I think no.5, no. 6, no. 7 and no. 10 need a do over.

Studying the legs for the first time. So far focusing on just the bones and I think these three are the first decent versions at an attempt of simplification. I haven't yet looked at Proko's assignement examples yet. Wanted to try before looking at them. If anyone has any comments I'd appreciate it. :)

Drawing the ribcage. My aim was to try and draw it rotated getting more dramatic with each row down. The final row at the bottom is imo dicey and not sure it all works. Though what I took from it was the thorciac arch looks like an upside down heart to me from below.

I hope you'll be publishing a course on Proko. ๐Ÿ™‚

Another set of Mannequinization studies. As the studies go along I begin to focus more on the shoulders as I struggle with drawing the shoulders. :)

Went to some Life Drawing classes last month. Being honest didn't do too great, I think I was nervous. The classes have ended for the time being but I will be going back when they're open. I did also do some pratice from photos using the same time limit at the class. Images 1 and 2 are 20 mins Images 3 4 5 6 are 50 mins to 1 hr. Images 1 2 3 are from the life drawing class. Images 4 5 and 6 are at home. Any critisms are welcomed. :P

Various studies on drawing the Loomis head. 1st image focuses on the turning of the head. 2nd image focuses on changing the proportions of the Loomis head. 3rd and 4th a focus on drawing the skull using my skull in the office. 5th and 6th is still a focus on the Loomis head at extreme angles. Any comments and feedback is appreciated. :)

Various studies into manniquinization. Image 3 was the first set of figures I did. I then focused on sections such as the arms and legs and torso. Image 1 was me using my own arm and a marker to mark out how I wanted to mannaquinize the arm, sort of going around the humerus bone. The legs are more simplfied cylinders. Torso needs more work in places but I'm happy with it so far. ๐Ÿ™‚ Any thoughts are welcome.

For some context I didn't do these enough on my first pass of anatomy and I think I'm paying for it now. These took me way longer to do than I expected trying to remember all those bumps. Mainly used Strength training anatomy book as a guide to figure out where the muscles went and a little of Proko when truly lost. I'm gonna do more of these with varying body types in the next set.

I think you're running when you should be trying to walk. What I mean by this is your lines are too quick and you're committing too soon and not considering the forms of the rib-cage and hip. You also seem to be also struggling with perspective. I'd suggest going over the bean again and practice drawing more boxes in perspective. I've included below an edit of your image to help. I'll just go over that now. The bean as drawn in green is how I like to approach the bean, I like to find the vertical and horizontal lines that help show it in 3D object in space, this makes it a lot easier to then make a box out of it because you've done a lot of work. . I hope this is helpful. ๐Ÿ˜‹

Robo bean practice. The oblique section is always tricky for me. ๐Ÿ˜…

Put this in the wrong section originally. Let's try again. ๐Ÿคฃ I like to start my day usually by doing gesture warm up. I have a program on my computer and it is set to an hour session usually. 30s x 21, 45s x 10, 1m x 7, 2m x 5, 5m x 3, 10m x 1.

Another set of arm tracings, a couple of my own arm and four of models. I'm trying to understand the placement and perspective. Any criticisms are welcomed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey David, first time seeing you live and also discovering your work! I'm quickly becoming a fan. ๐Ÿ˜‹ My question is when you draw do you sometimes have to think and figure it out? For example having to write it down or do multiple sketches of a particular scene. Like a camera in your head seeing it from many different angles.
