20mins pose - A3. A favourite I think. The acrylic paper had a nice canvas texture, I got lucky with the angle and I like that my attempts at the ribs didn't make her look like she got savaged by a beast. Plus I'm tres happy with the way the foot turned out.

20mins pose - A3. I'm not so happy with the face (why do I draw them so angry?) but the hands turned out better than I'd hoped.

1min poses - A2. very quick sketches, nice to practice focus on tension & angles. Focusing on where the weight falls helps me to pick which lines to draw.

2mins poses - A2. great for developing the discipline to mark the most informative lines.

10 mins pose - A2. I really struggled with the bigger size. A different model, she wasn't as able to sit as still as the previous model. I really enjoyed her bangs, it gave great depth & shadows to her face.

10 mins pose - A2. I'm not sure if I struggle with the bigger size due to a lack of practice, or the inability to see the whole picture at that scale. this is not a favourite. It's educational to see the bad with the good I guess.

A3. I went back to the more familiar smaller size. foreshortening is a hard beast. I swear her foot looked that small compared to her thighs.

20 mins pose - A3. note: don't spend too much time being hung up on one or two areas, and forget the bigger picture. Like making sure you've captured the composition you wanted, and that your proportions are accurate."

20mins pose - A3. Not a good one - an example of bad composition, which didn't give it the framing & space. This meant proportions didn't turn out right because of subconscious cramming. Plus all the time spent on proportions meant the face became flat due to neglect.
