    Suburban housewife's quiet mid-life crisis

    Hi, I'm trying to draw again after about 10 years of pretty much never picking up a pencil.

    I am not very good!! I'd be very grateful for criticism

    OK, not an excellent start on this "every day" thing, but here. It's from a pretty silly picture of a woman in latex-habit "nun" gear who I thought was pretty good at brandishing. If I tried to finish this I'd probably just make her an actual nun

    Hey crumbs, you've made a great start here!
    You seem to have a pretty good grip on anatomy and perspective, especially for someone who hasn't picked up a pencil in 10 years.
    The gesture studies and sketch of the gun-wielding lady show that your lines need some work though.
    Try to be more decisive, and make one line to describe the form, instead of lots of short sketchy ones. (this is the same thing I'm trying to work on at the moment)

    Yeah, my hands think that they can get away with scribbling and erasing until some ugly thing resembling a single line emerges. Thanks, I'll work on that!

    Some 5-minute faces. Not sure how to go about improving my linework, hoping stuff like this helps
