Rhythm drawings

I wanted to start doing some rhythm drawings in my spare time. I want to start to get better at quick sketching and I would like some tips to improve. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi @gimmiki , nice drawings! The structure is clear, and there is a nice sense of balance as you angle the hips and shoulders, creating nice rhythms. I'll do my best to help you further 😎👍 - How would you like your quicksketches to look? Knowing this might help me guide you in a direction that's relevant for you. What qualities would you like them to have? Do you have any work by another artist in mind? A drawing could be approached differently depending on what your goal with it is. It is likely that your drawing will go through stages. Animators for example, might start with a drawing focusing on the gesture (the acting; what the character is doing), then tie it down in another pass, to make sure that it's on model. Like Glen Keane does here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JA7Naf0RF4M&t=7s . Or to mention another process: maybe you start with the structure of the figure (the placement of the parts), then clarify the rhythm between when you add the wrinkles of the clothing. The point is: you probably won't do everything at the same time. If you want the figure to be drawn with a certain style of line, you'll probably add this first after having done a solid drawing. So; trying to have a clear mind, not trying to do everything at the same time. - While waiting for my reply on your reply of my question, maybe you could try this: I would study Dr. Paul Richer's canon of proportions (Human Proportions – Average Figure ). Take one of your drawings, and with the head you've drawn as reference for measurment, count heads and adjust your figures to match the canon. Remember that as things move in and out of space the proportions are distorted, so for many poses you can't measure the graphic lenght of the head on the paper and use that measurement. In those cases you could imagine what the measurment would be if you tilted it in space. I hope this helps :)

I guess what I'm looking for is to get my proportions correct. I feel as if when I go through my quick sketches they become more disproportioned and wonky. I try to use the head as a measuring tool but I feel as if the measurements are off when I try to transfer it to the page. I also want to make them cleaner and not have as many lines.
