    Nice ^_^

    Those are great sketches!! I especially like the second one, but everything in general looks great compared to what I did in figure drawing class How the heck do you get the proportions so good without using any guidelines or anything?! I guess that's my biggest problem when it comes to getting down to drawing a figure. Is there any approach you take towards drawing the figure in general that might help a newb like me get more comfortable with it? When dealing with such a short amount of time(1 minute sketches especially) what area do you attack first? Any advice you have on the subject would be most welcome!

    Great questions, Returner.

    When the model first hits his or her pose, first thing I do is get a broad look and take in the entire figure as a whole. That's when I find all the common arcs.

    1 minute, 2 minute, 10 minute poses
    Starting with the head I quickly work my way down noticing where each point - chin, shoulder, waist, leg - all seem to line up. If there is a common arc to follow, then usually the porportions all fall into place. The arcs are there and with practice you'll see them more readily and you get quicker at getting a figure out at each session.

    Hope this helps.

    -Tom

    Thanks! ^_^

    Thanks for the reply. I can honestly say that is the best advice I've had on figure drawing since I've started it at school. It makes so much sense and yet it's never crossed my mind! I've been drawing a few years now but I just started figure drawing a year ago, and it's been kind of frustrating getting started.

    I really appreciate the advice! If you have any more pointers like that for me I'd love to here em. I definitely need develop a fresh approach towards my figure drawing, so every little bit helps. Either way, keep up the great work! I can't wait to see more.
