    Savin' Lois. (Took an extra 10 minutes, less half-assed rendering. . .)

    Nice studies so far! I would also suggest switching to blank paper, even though you say nice paper would make you want to draw something more "pretty".. I'm sure there are crappy blank paper pads out there.. you could always try printer paper, that's a devil to draw on. Or letter paper! XD
    Apart from that, keep up the practice, maybe go for more detail in some places!
    Insanity is the key!
    Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.

    Hi there Aila!

    Nope! Gonna stick with the lined notebook and torture all my viewers! (At least until this notebook runs out. . .)

    Detail's tough with the quick rough sketch mode. For me, it takes about a half-hour to produce a reasonably good "figure" without any real background: about 15 minutes of drawing and restating/correcting, then about 15 minutes of rendering and tweaking values. (Given an hour and a half of focus, I can start to produce things that start to take on a professional gloss).

    Here, I'm trying to set multiple figures into some sort of composition (usually) and rough in some sort of indication of an "environment" within about 20 minutes-- detail kinda falls by the wayside!

    Part of my evil plan: by overloading my brain with these 10 to 20 minute dailys, I hope to get faster in "life drawing," where, for my source, the poses generally only last 20 or 25 minutes at the longest.

    Hey Aila, thanks for stopping back!

    Progress, I think, will be slow! To the extent that most of these will be multiple figures anchored in some sort of environment, I'll probably get a little tighter, a little more detailed, over the next couple months of (near) daily sketches.

    The leg study harkens back to a lot of the more detailed anatomy stuff I was doing over on Michael Mentler's tsofa.com. It's really the type of thing I'm trying to get away from to force myself to think about "making pictures"-- complete works of art, as opposed to just drawing a figure or item that's floating in a vacuum.

    But, anyway, you should check out Mentler's site http://tsofa.com --it's a somewhat different vibe than CA!

    Readers in Starbucks. (My victims left 8 minutes into this, just spent a few more minutes doing some of the usual "rendering-lite.")
