In January I joined "Do 50 figure sketches in 90 days" challenge and fulfilled it! 4500 quick and not so quick sketches are now please me and fill with pride. I can not say I became an expert. But I feel much more confident about the subject, human proportions, muscles and forshortening.
Now it is time to get into face study, so difficult and so interesting subject.
Here I was trying to sketch my mother while she was on the phone with my aunt. About 20 minutes. "At least now it looks like a human face", - was mom's reaction.
