    Nice sketches :) Try to work on varying the faces, expressions and body types a little bit more. Right now most of them look very similar like they are all basically the same person. And I guess if...

    Here are the issues that stand out for me. Hope this helps you make a decision:

    ShaniWard,

    I think the composition and perspective have gotten derailed in this latest variation.

    In the first sketch, if I understood it correctly—and it did take some time as you had neither...

    I am not sure how much this applies to you Ten, so apologies if I'm being presumptuous, but I think it's important to know and I do see you are focusing quite a bit on figure drawing at what appears...

    Farbstrom,

    Drawing what you like is certainly important, so glad to see you are mixing it up :)

    Istmin52,

    The rhythms in your gestures are fluid and dynamic, which is very nice. However, it’s not quite carrying over to the more fleshed out drawings, especially those from imagination. This is...

    Farbstrom,

    Don’t get too frustrated, it will take time, and it’s great to see some kind of work, whatever it is.

    It would help to try and work on certain skills individually instead of trying...

    Mrtdark1,

    I can see some of the exercises showing through. It’s quite early still, so the challenge will be to keep at it and see just how focused you can get those lines to be. It’s alright if...

    Hi Farbstrom,

    It’s pretty impressive the difference between those two model sketches, so great job on progressing this far in such a short time.

    Hey Mrtdark1,

    As far as practice goes, based on what you’ve posted so far I would recommend starting with line exercises. I would not worry about practicing anything else just yet, though by all...

    Nah, it's not bad. That's a decent study, as are the ones above it. In this 40 min one, the top of the cup is a fairly decent ellipse, so is the top of the egg cup. The bottom of the egg cup is a bit...

    Ah, well done for posting that. Could you also post a more detailed closeup photo of the plug? Doesn't have to be in the same position, though might help a bit if it was close.

    You do not need to get each stroke done in one go. In fact, you shouldn't, it's a totally unnecessary habit. Instead, just start very very lightly. Even draw with red or grey conte to...
