    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.

    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...

    shoebill,

    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...

    Four feet might be a bit close for capturing the full figure. In a class you could easily be two or three times that distance, depending on how much room there is. It may also be...
