TMC (Twenty Minute Challenge) #6

This morning's sketch is of a sweatshirt jacket with the wrong side facing out, hanging on a closet door.  Again, on 5" x 7" watercolor paper using a water soluble graphite pencil.

Last night, I practiced figure drawing a bit without measuring.  I'm determined to show the good and the bad and believe me, these two are way out of proportion.  I used a reference photo from  I am a member and read and try to practice a lot of what is being taught.  I know these sketches/drawings don't do his teaching justice but someday!  There are small areas in each one that I like though.  These were drawn with watersoluble graphite on computer paper. Each of these are 20 minute drawings.

Each one shows more fluid motion though. Am liking the tension you achieved with this one. The proportion will come as you do more. I checked out the drawing tutorial site. That's pretty neat! Is a wonderful thing for us recluses lol

Hi--your 20-minute challenge works are delightful. I've made several attempts but the buzzer sounds before I get much accomplished.

Enjoyed reading your blog.

Hi Ann, looking good! You may not be happy with them but I think the one of the viewer's right has loads of great fluid lines that made very descriptive statements. I really like it!

Micah, being a recluse myself, I find the online instruction websites a big plus lol.

hwfarber, I have visited your blog a couple of times and think you get so much information in within the 20 minutes. Wonderful.

Kyle, thank you!

Deb, thank you too. I enjoy doing the figure sketches/drawings even if the proportions aren't perfect. I keep trying to think of the bones under the skin and how the muscle wraps around. I don't know a lot about the bones and muscle but it is fun to search and find out more then try to apply the information.
