Hello Irshad! I can't tell you enough how Drawabox has helped and is helping me improve my drawing skills, and I'm very thankful for all the great work you have being putting out for these past years. Now here's my question: I have interest in drawing webcomics, but I'm still a beginner, how can I tell when my skills are developt enough to the point where I can draw a comic that doesn't look awful.

Marshall I remember when you were talking about studying some aspect in nature so much that it could be applied to a composition almost subconsciously (like the wedding dress designed like a waterfall). How can I recognize some aspect in nature that would make my compositions better and more unique? Is it just to decide what I think it's cool and start studying it? Or should I give a more well thought analysis about which stage my art is right now and where do I want to take it? By the way, thank you for the podcast and for taking the time to answer it.

These are very clean! Your line work is neat. Tho I kinda miss the spheres that should serve as the structure for the beans, some of these, like the bottom right one on the 4th page, gets a little flatten and confusing. Try to maintain the spheres (and even cross counter lines if needed) to have more solidity. Great work!

15 beans, 1 minute each! I think I can capture the movement of the torso well actually, but I struggle when it requires perspective. Also my lines are pretty messy in most of these, sorry about that.

Round 2 of my Quicksketchs exercises! I think I can feel more of the flow of particular forms, but I still struggle with proportion and even with the readability of the pose sometimes.

Hello! here are some of my 30 second, 1 minute and 2 minute figure drawings. I feel like there is some sort of secret sauce missing in my drawings but I can't figure out what it is. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated! 😀

These are very fun! I particularly like the 30 sec ones. I think you are holding yourself to much on the outlines of the poses, this is not the focus of the exercise, but it's to instigate your feeling of a pose, action and character. Don't hold yourself to the solidity of the body, but embrace the fluidity of movement. To help this, I think you could warm up a little before starting actually drawing, just by scribling. And I always recomend trying to find one single main line, I feel like this helps alot when trying to sellout a dynamic pose. Great work!

Wow you got some really expressive poses! Though you might try to loosen up the way you treat form in general. Some of them are still kinda robotic and uncanny, try to FEEL the form. Also try to capture one single main line of action, this makes the pose more solid and vivid.

Hello everyone, these are 2-minute gesture drawings I've done for the past couple of days. I feel like they're a bit on the cartoony side and not that realistic/proportional. The way I drew these was by starting with the robo bean and then attaching the limbs.  Do I need to learn anatomy in conjunction with figure drawing to make my drawings look more realistic/proportional? Or should I just focus on figure drawing for now and worry about anatomy further down the line?

You seem to grasp very well the concept of the bean, but I feel like the way you're using it doesn't help very much when drawing gesture. Maybe try to find one main line on the figure first and after that you can add the adjacent lines for limbs (trying to keep the flow of the pose on them) and after that you can try to add the bean. About studying anatomy while studying figure drawing, you sure can do that, but Figure Drawing is the core basis in drawing human figures. If youre worried about structure you can give a go on the Mannequinization and proportions videos the course has to offer.

I've been drawing quicksketchs focusing on gesture for a while now, but I can't really grasp where have been failing on. I can tell when a pose is stiff or weird but I don't know why.

I feel really anxious when sketching in digital. Like I can't grasp the tridimentionality in the digital media like on paper, my drawings/ paintings end up looking really flat. How can I change it and FEEL the 3D on my computer screen?
