(except the first 10)
First 100 suck as expected but bear with me
a bit better? nah
I like those studies! I think they are good, so NOT bad!
How long did you work on each pose?
Great goal to work towards. I would suggest that in-between posemaniacs studies you do some figurative sketches without a reference. That will give you some insight into the areas that you have particular trouble with and need to pay more attention to when you're doing your referenced sketches.
90 secs posemaniacs
@Eiki Thanks bro. 90 seconds
@dierat Thanks for advice, will do. My first goal was to improve my eye-hand coordination and learn to simplify. I see some improvement after each 100 poses.

The adventure continues
I think it's getting better
Very impressive! There is a huge improvement between number 1 and number 338 hahaha awesome work. Like someone said above, I would try to work from no references in between these monster uploads, try to get it down in your head. Amazing work though, very inspiring.
@Osau Thank you, very encouraging. For now only doing these as you can see helps improving a lot. I'll try some after these 1000.
@Loathsome Thanks. Photoshop + wacom.
Awesome dude! Love the silhouettes
Thank you guys!
Great start keep it up yourll improve tones
longlive posemaniacs I would've screwed up the proportions badly before
tired but cant sleep
hrmm ive been inspired starting tomorrow im doing 20 figures every day thanks
doing them is good but dont forget to set more goals
i think working on the flow of the figure would be good, the lines are looking a little stiff
keep it coming !

Looks like there are some explanations needed: this is just my first goal in a long series. Purpose? To put me on track, to start drawing what I see not what I think I see, to learn to simplify (not get stuck in useless details), to see the big shape and therefore draw the proportions right, also get the silhouette right.
As you will see below only at half of it the improvement is visible. What I'm looking for at the end of this? To be able to draw from observation decently, relaxed not being afraid I'll fuck up the proportions and draw a monster instead of the beautiful woman in front of me And, why not, being able to draw from life in a coffee shop
I wish you all luck and perseverance in achieving your goals
I hope ur kidding otherwise it's pretty sad
Thanks for advice.
Much respect for your perseverance.
Thank you, you've made my day!
I hope I explained above.
Yes, still long way to go but look below where I'm coming from
I'll pay your SB a visit bit later, on my way out now.
You can see below how my figures looked like when I started..

this is a great idea, does anyone know how to put a thumbnail next to your thread in skecthbook? IM a bit of a noob to this site!!
Tried some pencils for a change (sorry for the shitty camera quality - the scanner was not at hand).
Very cool, I can see this helping with posing a ton. I really need to focus in that area, like a lot. What would you recommend? I have learned to render things out decently but still lack this sort of depth to my images. My figures are always so still or whatever I can pull off from a good reference. I want to do them more naturally.
Do you do these from memory or do you search out references? Thx for what help you can give. I know in the end it takes work and practice and growth.
@Sunny Thanks mate. Just go to posemaniacs.com and choose 90 seconds. Do it daily and it will payoff. Good luck
I'm dizzy today
Good beginning man, the real trick is to feel the pose and see it spatially. try to overlap box studies on some of the 90's.
