My initial 2-minute sketches, I think, are improving a lot. I'm starting to fully take use of the page and control my proportion with height, but I still have trouble getting the thickness of the body.
This was an exercise that had 4 5-minute poses, and it was a gradual animation from crouching to a standing position.
I feel that this is my best drawing from this session, I ignored the actual lighting and decided to use a two-tone and make one half black and the other grey.
This was an experimental piece where we got pieces of paper and ripped it to form the shape of the model, then I used chalk, charcoal and a blue marker to fill in the shading.
