Hi everyone! Looking for critique. The first image is just me trying to clearly identify the landmarks on a photo. Second is me trying to use the landmarks in my figure drawing practice as suggested. Third is me following along with Stan's examples. I think the information is starting to sink in! I'd like someone to point out if I'm repeating any major mistakes, though.

Hi @Scott Flanders and fellow students, here is my current line-up. I updated the characters from the development stage with the exploration for the focal points. After the last feedback video (focal points), I did some more sketches and finally I merged two weaker characters (the leader and the tinker) into a new one. I had way more fun with the farmer and reduced the samurai theme to a point where I think it is acceptable.. Even though I preferred 5 characters in the line-up in terms of odd numbers, I had to admit that the material was not good enough. I scanned them and did some digital corrections. The blocked color in the background helps me to identify the shapes a bit better with the sketches. For the upcoming shapecarving I would like to change some details along the way. Some proportions, some gesture... this is really hard for me with the pencil. I am so used to flipping canvas and doing cmd-Z, especially when it comes to making final decisions. The Pumpkin Brigade is my thrown together mercenary troop, which gets the job done for the right amount of coin. Best wishes from my desk to all, Andre

Some Mannequinization sketches I did yesterday. Would love some feedback. I wanted to try some extreme poses this time around and I think I got better as a went through each pose.

I have many, I will build an art studio where I would be able to publish comics that I have drawn myself. I also want to employ other artists who want us to help them with their dreams.

18 30 sec gestures and 2 2 min gestures. I'm trying to practice before work, so hopefully I can keep it up! I had a lot of fun doing my first attempts after watching the assignment examples, but after watching the critiques I realized what I had been drawing before had lots of extra lines. This was my first attempt again trying to pick my lines first and then draw them. I think I've gotten too in my own head, and am focusing on single parts of the body and my drawing too much to visualize the whole thing. I'd appreciate any feedback :)

I really liked your 2 min sketches they looked amazing, the flow and the pose all make sense and go together. But in your 30s poses it feels rigid, it seems to be a reaccuring issue as from the fourth picture to the 7th I don't see the center line, and all of them looked like you only focused on the contour. also i see some chicken scratches (some places where you use small lines instead of one long fluid line). to fix the rigidness I think you should rewatch the videos (it helps a lot) and make your lines consist of C S I lines. increase the time to 1min since you might be struggling with the the 30s time frame. with more practice you will be able to go back to the 30s soon. lastly, its amazing how you balance your work and your desire to draw. its really hard to balance things so props to you! I bet you will do amazing.

Day 02 - Today the time was shorter. I focused on the Bean, instead of the timed gestures, which I'll probably get back to tomorrow, while still doing more Bean studies.

Day 01 - Rewatching Proko's Figure Drawing Fundamentals series, and doing timed gesture sessions. Looks like Croquis Cafe is now paid, what a bummer.(I mean, they should totally charge, their work is amazing, but I don't have the money right now). Anyone know a good alternative with timed sessions? Anyway, here are the photos of today's studies.

Hey guys, this was day 2 of gesture drawing practice. I think I'm getting better with the 2 minute practice, but I can't say the same about my 30 sec practice. I think it might be because I'm worried about getting as much right as possible with such little time, and I think worrying about the time constraint in general is my biggest problem, along with excessive focus on accuracy and proportions. Constructive critique and advice is appreciated! Also, any thoughts on erasing parts of a gesture drawing for housekeeping purposes would be great.

hey, i think you are doing a lot of chicken scratching, what it means you are drawing with small lines rather than a long confiednt lines, and i see you focusing more on the contours rather than the line of action. what you should do is, try to capture the form in as little lines possible. like using a single line from the shoulders to the base of the feet , and they shouldn't be that straight too. don't worry about structure yet as we are still in gesture watch more of proko's example to undertsand what should be done. and don't be shy to watch the videos more than once to assure your understanding of the concept. I actually did gesture drawing wayy before like mid to late 2020 watching his youtube videos and i did the same as you but more people told me to stop with the chicken lines and focus on the line of action and what im feeling. i took tooo much of a break and now im trying to do gesture again. it's important to reinforce what you learned again and again. good luck on your art journey .

Heyo it’s my first time posting! I’m not sure if there are any unspoken rules for this but here I go. This is a combination of my proko gestures and gestures I found on the line of action website. I’ll post more soon!

So I am going on a trip soon it’s going to take sometime until I reach my destination. I thought I could just download the lessons since it is written as a feature on the course overview. yes I did buy the courses I want to download but how?
