- Draw out with the arm
- Don't get caught in details
- Block out the shapes
- Do measurements for longer drawings - not shorter ones
- Keep drawings thumbnail-sized for 10sec - 1 min drawings
By keeping this in mind, I was able to jump from this 30 second pose...
...to these 30 second poses in just a few hours. These gesture drawings have really helped me to loosen up.
Additionally, I discovered that thumb-nailing poses first for longer drawings too usually gets me better results. During this session, I was having difficulty conveying the pose. I stopped, did a few scratch drawings, tried again, and got a more satisfying result.
Continuing these methods...
Although this is just practice, these drawings are still far from perfect. At the same time, I'm still trying to break old habits...
