The most developed one took an hour and a half . . . . would prefer to be faster. I'd really appreciate your C&C.

Good sense of weight and movement in the third group of studies.

The feet of the first figure are too small.

Re: Recent life drawings

These look good Felix. How large, roughly are the figures. If I have 1.5 hour I will draw the figure on one page of 18x 14 ..

The shapes look very good. Now I think - sorting out your form shadows (/core/terminators) and your cast shadows is next. Often, however the light at drawing workshops is not single-source or very good so that may be a bit of a challenge but - developing the drawing based on shadow shapes will create a better final work ( vs a more contour-oriented line drawing).


ps If you are using charcoal pencils, keep the much sharper than they appear here - the tip is for key edges and some minor details, the side is for form, and the block-in and construction..

Re: Recent life drawings

I think you did a good job of orienting all the body parts and the shorter drawings show the forms and thrust of the figure very well.

The feet need some work, but the left hand in the first drawing looks very good. Your rendering technique is nice to look at. I like your approach to the gesture drawings...you're able to convey a lot about the poses.

Re: Recent life drawings

I think these look very nice - they're very believeable figures. I can't give better advice than above, but I'd say you should not be worried about speed or the time it takes at all.
