I went to my first life-drawing studio last night, this was a 30 second sketch ...

I understand it's a quicky, but still - got to point out that you've done way too much of her torso as chest (or, breast)
Her hip shouldn't cover her pubic hair so much - should be more to the left.
I think you did something I'm sure a lot of people do in these sketches - paying too much attention to the breasts, detracting from other areas.

I love the way you have retained your style under pressure.... and I like the simple clean lines of her face...

30 seconds goes by very, very quickly!! You did a great job here. Your lines are very sure and proportion is good. I think you really caught what you wanted to, and got a lot of information in.
In 30 seconds I'm lucky if I get anything drawn at all!
I'd like to see what you did in the long poses, like 3 minutes...LOL!
I'm not really joking, I really would like to see what you did in the longer poses...I bet they're great!

it's simple and definitely catches the essence of this particular subject...so many of my super short poses would not really be recognizable as a particular person...the lines look confident and the only question i have is what is the dark area at the top...?:clap:

if you mean the dark area by her shoulder, it is her arm bent and holding her neck.
This was actually my last drawing of the night. She had been holding this as a 30 minute pose, but I had extra time, so after I did the big drawing, I went back to my sketchbook and did 5-6 30 secs. It helped having paid attention to the same details for the last few drawings.
I wish I could post my 18 x 24 drawings! They are much better! no camera :(
always a pleasure! thanks for looking!
at the start of my studio (it was my first) I noticed an overconcentration on the breasts- so it's funny you mentioned that. The rest of my work from that night I tried to get the whole body in. I felt that with this pose, the breasts were 'the thing' though. *shrug*
thanks for the crit! you're right about the hip line- I would've fixed it had I used more time.
thanks for takin' the time to speak your mind, all!
