Time management when drawing

I have noticed a pattern in the way I draw. I always start with the line of action, etc. Once I start fleshing up the pose, I always seem to work my way up from the legs/feet to the top... and I need to manage my time better because I always miss time to focus on hands and face! First three drawings are 3 mins poses, last three are 5 mins.


  1. I think it is a challenge for everyone to draw hands and face in less than 5 minutes. I am also working on it

  2. Very nice. Strong bold lines. Too me life drawing has been about getting a confident line, and you definitely have that.

    1. Zee! thanks for this!

      I think it helps that in gesture drawing you just go, focus intensely for a couple of mins and then move on to the next one... I tend to think way too much and doubt myself... I find that gesture drawing helps to try putting that aside and let it all out...!
