Default Iconostential's Sketchbook

New year, new sketchbook.

I came up with an exercise I think will force me to draw more, and draw quickly. I'm taking magazines (typically fashion mags for lots of poses) and drawing at least one person from every page. All of these will be in pen, and I'm trying to work as quickly as possible, with few lines. It's absolute murder, but I hope it will be great practice.

Default Here comes some help

I've noticed that some of your pictures look distorted. The greatest way to improve is not only practice, but by reading books on the topic you want to br good at. Some books that may help you are: figure drawing for what its worth, drawing the head and feet, and any anatomy book.

For the light shadow exercise you did, it might be more beneficial to forgo any hard lines at all and try to get the subject to show purely through values. I feel like the lines you're putting down are affecting the way you see the light/shadow values and thus you're getting somewhat influenced by them instead of relying purely on observing the value shifts.
