Practice Needed…

Returning to life drawing today I have to say my output was distinctly poor; I found myself lagging behind on the quicker poses with very few approaching anything near finished, the one above being the nearest to something complete. Ack.

On the bright side though I’m sure this is good for developing my technique, I feel like a lost touch with observational drawing over Christmas (among other things) so now’s the chance to take it up as regular practice again. Like the class tutor Melodie explained, it’s more important to identify and try to correct mistakes than to make pretty pictures.

I’m getting things wrong, but at least they’re wrong in a productive way…

    I think there is visible improvement compared to the first life drawing you posted. The shapes are softer, it flows better, the pose is really natural, and it’s not an easy one .

      @demontales: In that respect it’s probably part of the reason why quicker poses are helping me improve; I don’t get the chance to indulge in overworked lines… Thanks for the compliments anyhow, I’m not happy with it – but then again, when am I ever? XD
