    Short-hand 13 lines technique

    Hey I was wondering. I'm constantly finding ways to improve my life-drawing skills to the next level. I want to practice the shorthand technique for a while just to gain a better sense of what lines I am laying down are necessary or not. Mainly, this is to help myself improve in gesture drawing 15 seconds to 1 minute.

    I would like to ask you knowledgeable people out there for some tips. For this technique. What areas of the body are the best to outline/imply the form of the pose? I know it really depends on the specific pose the model is performing, but in general, is it best to make a mark for shadowed areas? Body parts where the most tension is being held (such as cabs?).

    I am sorry if I was not clear enough in explaining what I am looking for, but hopefully someone got the point.

    Any advice would be appreciated. Thank you.

    heyyy JJH, i've seen u post on lettie's DA alot, are u jeff? then i saw u when i was with peter when i was visiting sheridian! i've been trying to draw the figure in very little lines for a while. Anyways, I'm guessing u know Peter too so ask him to introduce u to Herbert. He draws the entire figure in 5-10 lines. Or... u can ask peter to ask arn, or j00... they taught herbert everything.

    Oh Hey Druie. Yes I'm Jeff. Hmm.. Yea I'll ask Peter about them. Actually I'm going to get a tutor so I think that would help a lot.
