Hello! These are my first 20 (1 minute) poses. I found it very hard to simplify as you can see. At the end I was enjoying this approach so I also did 2, 5 minute poses. Feedback welcome.

It's so hard in the beginning, but the best results only come with practice, tons of practice! So, don't give up, just practice, you are on your way!

Congratulations to the winners! This ended up being one of my favorite challenges so far. We definitely need to do this prompt again once we launch to the public. Every submission was really good and choosing winners was difficult. Here they are: 1st - @Tarek Khazendar 2nd - @Steffen Anzivino 3rd - @fyll Community Choice - @Joe Watson Team Choice - @Mathieu Dufour Science Award - @Side Shave Laura Gingrich

Hi! In my anatomy course the video "How to Draw Breasts - Form & Motion" is censored. I attach the screenshot (in Italian, but I'm in France). I thought it was a Youtube issue in France, but on Youtube the same non-premium video is accessible. I've checked other videos, it seems like it's just a problem for this one. Thank you!

Here is my Tigger submission. Hope you all find it amusing at least.

This was really fun and really interesting to do - makes you realise how tricky this stuff is ... anyway, a blast from the past - Snoopy!

This scene from Hergé's Adventures of Tintin - Destination Moon came to mind when I saw this challenge. The Thom(p)son twins are spooked after seeing each other through an X-ray screen... This was a real challenge. It was only once I'd started that I realised how hard it would be. I had to go back through the Proko videos and lesson notes for a crash course on bones and muscles and ended up going down the rabbit hole. The Skelly app was really useful for setting up the pose and taking the guesswork out of how a bone looks from an unusual angle. I have an old graphics tablet but it's a bit awkward and not easy for getting any kind of flow, especially for the initial sketch. So I started with pencil or fineliner pens on tracing paper, scanned in, then cleaned up and corrected (or redrew completely) in digital. This was fun, but I need a lie down. Here are the pics with some process shots...

Hi everyone! Here is my Pink Challenge! It took me some time. My goals were to have fun and learn, to present something complete (even if not perfect) in a composition that I liked. Here is the procedure that I followed: 1. I drew many Pink Panthers from the old cartoons (with my son) to become familiar with the character - and have fun 2. I studied the character from the anatomical point of view - I used these resources: - Proko Anatomy Course - Anatomy books - Web resources - Introduction to Animal Anatomy by Marshall Vandruff 3. I drew several preparatory sketches - as I have not yet studied anatomy in depth, I preferred to focus on the skeleton - the muscular representation is only sketched, more difficult    4. I combined everything together in a composition that I liked (actually I started from the very beginning thinking about the composition, drawing many thumbnails, and changing my mind several times) Thank you @Stan Prokopenko for choosing me as a beta tester, I never thanked you before for this

Geeze you guys! Drive us crazy indeed! 😉 ‘Carried Horizon’? A straightforward Google search got me nowhere. You’ve convinced me in other podcasts and the Proko Anatomy course that I need to learn perspective, so I started Marshall’s course just over a week ago. (It rocks!) Looking forward to Marshall’s Magnum Opus on Proko 🥰. To figure out what the ‘carried horizon’ was about took an extra listen, plus taking notes, attempting to draw what I thought you were saying, putting a pencil in the middle of my pencil box and roll it around, checking notes and comments on the YouTube site, and another fishing expedition on Google. At one point I thought I had it from Marshall’s explanation about right angles in relation to the Y axis, but then Stan said something about THREE(?!) horizon lines (35:19). I really want to try the 20 cubes spinning around exercise finding the ‘carried horizon’ (though how to proceed if you’re not sure what it is you’re trying to find?). I found an excerpt from google books online of Watson’s [Creative Perspective…], “…carry out the converging lines…to their respective vanishing points…” and luckily for me there was a diagram. I think I understand now and maybe have a starting point for the exercise (but in general I’m never certain of anything 😅). Is it fair to say that the ‘carried horizon’ is the straight line between two vanishing points, and that’s why in 3 point perspective there are three of them? Thank you ☺️!

@Teresa Bolen @Nanna Skytte Hi Teresa and Nanna! Did you find an answer about the three horizon lines? I think that Marshall and Stan were talking about the Horizon Line (horizontal) + the two Vanishing Trace (vertical, perpendicular to the H.L. and passing through the two vanishing points in Two Point Perspective). You find this topic in Lesson 9 (Inclined Planes) and chapter IX of Watson's book "The house of the 7 vanishing points". I see that you have worked so hard on Perspective!

Here are my beans :-) sometimes it's difficult for me to understand which part is closer and should go above the other

Here are also some 30 seconds poses, it's such a short time, but It helps so much to capture the essential!

Hi everybody, here are some of the 2 minutes assignment, I try to do 10 poses each day (from a few months), I think I improve but I probably should work on the line quality, any suggestions?
