gestures are all 1 minute, otherwise everything is 20-25 minutes
I haven't been in a legit figure drawing class in 2-3 years so this has been a lot of fun
The teacher is pushing me to slow down and focus on line, not proportion, construction or values. He isn't my favorite teacher in the world but I certainly try very hard to work on pursuing the things he encourages in class and I hope I'm making obvious progress with them. Are drawings like these appropriate for a college app portfolio or are they not finished enough?

I'm liking the Michael Hampton book a lot for demonstrating 3 dimensional construction
Did a sketch group thing with a few friends, had a fantastic time and got some great sketches out of it. We took turns posing for each other starting with some shorter poses and working up to a max of 5 minutes. We had a couple fencing sabers and a stool for props and managed to have some fun with the poses just with that. Can't wait to do this again.
