Hi there, I'm making a Sketchbook/Drawing Diary so that I can see my progress this year if I really improve. I will mostly post insects, animals, vehicles and maybe some human anatomy to improve my visual library. I will try my best to post everyday so that I wont procrastinate.

Figure Analysis in Boxes and Cylinders Exercise
I have an exercise I’ve been doing with some friends in a private forum that I thought would be useful here.  It’s a kind of simplified masters study, where we break down the work of our favorite artists into boxes and cylinders.  Check out Drawabox.com to get up to speed on the theory that underpins form. Understanding convergence and how circles work in perspective is very important. On the site, when you get to the 250 box challenge, and 250 cylinder challenge, I would suggest doing at least part of the studies in the form of this figure analysis exercise. Doing so will help you apply the procedural knowledge (the how) you learn there, to the contextual knowledge (the when) you’ll need to incorporate the lessons into your own work. If you struggle with drawing simple forms correctly, this exercise can help. They only take a few minutes to do and are good exercises that can help you get the most out of your other studies that assume this knowledge as a foundation. I’ll post a few to get us started. Post any exercises in the replies. Also, feel free to post your own favorite artists for the rest of us to analyze. Different artists have a variety of proportional approaches to the figure, and it’s worth studying the differences.

Portrait progress
I started the Proko portrait course approximately 2 years ago. I feel I’ve made great progress since then and am still working on it. Here’s my latest. I initially found that drawing heads was very difficult, and the course was helpful in breaking things down in a way I could understand.

Portrait critique
Hi, I’ve recently returned to drawing and have been practicing my portrait lay-ins. I’m completely self taught and have never benefited from the critiques of other artists. I want to move onto rendering some finished pieces but don’t think I have the basics pinned down just yet Any help or advice you guys have would be massively appreciated cheers 😁

My most recent figure drawings!
Hello good friends! I figured (pun intended) I'd share my most recent figure drawing practices as my first post on Proko 2.0! These were all done during the past 6 months, and for the most part are between 2 - 5 minutes. I'd like to hear what you guys think I can improve on and if possible to also see your own! Thanks in advance, and have a great one :)

Razcore's Doodlepad
Hello students and gurus :) I think over the years, my number one problem was an inconsistent timetable. Soooo to keep it short, I'm trying to draw even a tiny little bit every day. To that end, I decided to open this doodlepad in hopes that it keeps me going. Some of these are from imagination, some from references, timed or not. For the references, I made an app a short while ago. If you know line-of-action/quickposes, it's similar to those, but it's a desktop app and uses Pexel's photograph database instead. I have a short presentation of it here https://www.proko.com/community/topics/pexelsqd-a-quick-draw-picture-slideshow-app. You can grab the app from https://github.com/razcore-art/godot-pexelsqd. Hope it helps! If you do get it you'll need to register for an account with Pexels and grab yourself an API-KEY. So here we are, wish me luck! :)

How do I finish this digital portrait?
I started this digital portrait of my boyfriend months ago, but could never figure out how to finish it! Any idea how to stop it looking like a floating head, and make it look more finished? I wasn't working from a photo, so I was making up the angle of the shoulders, which I like, but can't figure out where the shirt should go. Not sure a shirt would add much anyway! Any suggestions, or critiques on the drawing would be appreciated!

Doing it "right" - or doing it a lot?
I've been learning the fundamentals online for about a year now, and there is a ton of information out there to get to grips with - one thing that comes up time and time again is these two conflicting pieces of advice; 1. Do it right - don't worry about speed, that comes with time - just focus on doing whatever you're doing correctly - if you don't do this, you will just develop a lot of bad habits 2. Do it a lot - don't worry about quality, that comes with time - just focus on iterations and failing a lot - if you don't do this, you will get stuck and never progress This drives me crazy! I ping back and forth between these two ideas in my practice - enjoying the quality of my work when I take my time (but getting frustrated at how long it takes), and enjoying the quantity of ouput when working quickly (but getting frustrated at how much of it is terrible) Does anyone else struggle with this?

Some basics from my sketchbook!
Been studying fundamentals slowly but surely! I used to be an artist who only knew how to paint through observation but never touched fundamental stuff!

Portrait In Graphite feels off, Critique/Advice appreciated
Last few portraits I've been drawing feel kind of off and I cant put my finger on why exactly. They have an almost uncanny valley feel to them and my eyes seem to be pushed away from the face. Here's my latest one, would love some pointers on what I should be focusing on.

Gesture practice using basic Reilly rhythms. Feedback appreciated
Hi everyone! This will be first time posting on the Proko forums and I'm excited to be participating. Recently I've started using basic Reilly rhythms in my quicksketch and I just wanted some constructive feedback on how I'm doing. I know I still struggle with proportions (e..g torso too wide, legs too big) but I was wondering if anyone had good advice on how I can improve my work. Thank you in advance and happy drawing!

1-5 minute gesture drawings
Here are a few gesture drawing sessions I've done recently. I have really been trying to practice my line with some simple exercises during warm ups. The 1-2 minute poses in these life drawing videos get a little hectic! Any and all critiques on these are welcome! Thanks for looking!

Perspective Sandbox
@Nanna Skytte and I have decided to take the plunge and start learning perspective, and if possible to play, and make it as much fun as we can. I’m feeling a bit nervous - the reframe for that is ‘excitement’, isn’t it 😅 - so setting this up to invite others to join us, beginners to take the emotional risk of diving in to something new, and those of you more experienced folks to play along and help out, if you feel so inspired. Hopefully the community and accountability will push us all to our next level of awesomeness 🦋.
