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 😂

I'm trying out different paper, and this one is super smooth. Unfortunately, I don't really know what it's called 🙂 We have it at the studio for free ^^; However, I can't figure out if I like the smoothness. I feel like it leaves less room for erasing as even willow charcoal just wants to … Continue reading Two-pose male figure, charcoal drawing
More gestures of the same model. I wonder if I should re-draw the ones I like and try to develop them more 🤔
