    That's a nice start, but is it just me or dose the neck appear too forward? Or is it just my sleep deprived eyes?

    Hmmmm.... could be. She's sort of thrusting her neck forward a bit, but the pit of the neck might be off center - nice catch. I shall ponder on it. Meanwhile..

    Today;s gestures. I switched from 60s to 30, and the panic came back briefly (which is probably a good thing actually).

    Yes, many anatomy books. My favorites, the ones that I think helped me the most, are Hogarth's Dynamic series and Robert Beverly Hale's Master series. Right now I'm starting to work through Proko's figure drawing stuff on his website - some amazing stuff!! Having a hard time with gestures, but they're starting to get better, and I;m sure with time they'll improve my work immensely. I had skipped right over quick sketches and gestures before and gone straight into anatomy, and now I'm still trying to put too much anatomy into my gestures.

    It took me a long time to realize I was making her arms a lot thicker than they really are. In fact I've done this with all the MMA girls so far. Must make brain realize women don't bulk up like men do (unless they take growth hormone or something lol!)

    Realized yesterday people seeing my gestures might think they're really terrible attempts at anatomical sketches. Wanted to demonstrate that I CAN do more complete sketches (not really good at it yet though). First attempt at using Conte pencil on newsprint (done after watching Vilppu's demo on Proko - great inspiration!!):

    Rather than do 20 speed gestures from Quickposes today, I did 5 'slow gestures', trying to learn the proper form for drawing them. Probably spent 3 to 5 mins on each. Getting better..

    (Ok, so I did 6 - one didn't come out so good so I tried it again)

    Switched up from untimed to 1 min for these and drew big on newsprint. Sorry for the awful photo quality - need to work out a better lighting setup for it.

    Ok, well I've largely solved the lighting issue now - example:
