This piece took me about 30 minutes, and I wish I had done it on a better paper. I used rough newsprint, and it's not the best paper for longer poses. Still, I'm fairly satisfied with the results, especially considering that I didn't get the best vantage point for this pose.
Once again, there's a certain scene lined up here. I call it "waiting.' For what? That's a secret ^_~
This model did very dynamic poses, and I really enjoyed capturing them. I think, my drawings really lack that dynamic feel in a lot of cases. Something to work on!
The pose on the left looked pretty dynamic to begin with, but then I decided to add that braid! What a difference *_* Really love how the movement got captured in this one.
I always feel like the stool looks out of place in my drawings. Perhaps I need to work in the horizon line or define the flat area on the floor to ground both the figure and the stool? 🤔
This is a 20-minute drawing, and I think I got the shoulders right in here.
I think I really need to work on shoulder girdle, it seems to always turn out way too small. This is a 10-minute drawing, but all of the basic structure mistakes are already set in place 😂

For example, sometimes I can't see the model's feet because the heater or something else is in the way, and it really throws off the whole figure.

Back to the gesture drawings, I really like when drawing sessions start with a series of quick 1-minute standing poses. It' a great warm-up exercise, helps one get into the drawing mood for the rest of the session.
