    Fifty sketches, at two minutes each (except for a few by the bottom). Phew!

    And if you look to this post you see a fine example of what happens when you slack off for a couple of weeks.
    Sorry about posting it past the deadline but the net is bad at my home so I had to wait to get to work to post it.
    Digital stuff time varied from 30secs to 10mins. Stuff from my sketchbook was untimed. Shame I didn't do any tonal stuff, will make up for it next week

    Thanks Anthis, those are some awesome suggestions. I'll be more aware of transitions bases on underlying anatomy. I guess these first few I am trying to find a groove in how to approach these, once that becomes a habbit it will be easier to focus on depicting it more accurately.
    PS: Anthis, do you have a blog or a gallery with your work? I am curious to see your work.
    Eliza: I like these, you seem to have a confident way of drawing. Your female figures look better though then your males.
    Animare: I know what you're daying about the slacking off, these kind of studies need to be part of a daily rythm. It's really hard sometimes to keep that up after a while. You did do 2 tonals though, the lighting is done well even though they are very quick. You need skill to simplify it down like that.

    ElizaWy; Great sketches! Your approach seems very similar to mine. I believe your figures are noticeably better when you've drawn the feet and the poses are consciously grounded. For instance, 10 (number missing, its the standing woman), the disc thrower (27 I think), 37 and 45 lack the strong feet of your other poses, resulting in gestures of less solidity. At least, that's my impression

    Animare; Ah, stuff like that happens. Nice approach, with varying degrees of construction. Works pretty well with the foreshortening. The ones from your sketchbook are interesting too, are they from life? The construction appears to be working less well here as you're losing some of the proportions. When drawing from observation, it can be liberating to draw freely, just observing the forms and reproducing them. For instance, the portrait without construction is stronger than the ones with.

    Hamorhage; Yea I think it's incredibly tough. Value and its transitions can tell you what the form is like directly. A slight change can actually mean a great deal. Gotta do this more often as well.
    As for me- I don't have a gallery or blog at the moment, just my CA sketchbook. Would like to, though. Currently I'm working hard on getting a portfolio together so that I can try freelancing. No experience on that, so I have little idea where to start .

    Either way, new round is up! I'll be further editing it tomorrow, adding refs and such.

    Hi everybody!

    @Anthis: this is a wonderful thread, very useful thanks for managing it!

    Here are my figure studies: 30 sec each from posemaniacs, not so much tonal i admit...

    an other cool site for this kind of things you maybe already know about is http://lovecastle.org/draw/ very useful!

    CountBlackula and Andrea Tarroni; A new round starts every week, this is an old one. Sometimes an old round is at the 'top of the page' because spammers tend to visit these threads. Just check the numbers, we're currently on round #242!
