Late Sunday drawing and I used the same format as our Saturday life drawing sessions.
I started with some 2 minute gestures then went into a 40 minute longer drawing. Either I’m moving to fast or I just don’t know how to use these charcoal pencils well because I’m finding it very hard right now to get subtle values throughout the figure. The pencils are great for line work, but when it comes to putting down value I think they kinda suck. Or it could just be me…

Maybe this could help
I don’t know what it is exactly, but I find these poses more interesting and accurate than those from real life. Maybe you spend as much time as you want on these drawings? I know you want to get even better, but I think these drawings from your program are pretty amazing.
