Practice dump

  1. Just out of curiosity, how much time to do spend on each figure here?

    1. It's on a spectrum between 10 and 20 minutes. Nudes are quicker, costumed ones take a bit more to process (heh, hence decades of body-painted superhero costumes I suppose)

    2. I wondered because I've gotten into the habit of warm up practices like this, but mine are five minutes each at most as are nowhere near this clean and polished.

    3. For sure, I do still do quicker ones like that as well. With these medium length ones I'm usually trying to purposefully jam some information into my head (mostly mechanical, like how do the hips work, etc..) Basically they're more about the knowledge than the aesthetics or drawing itself, if that makes sense.

  2. Do you use a photo reference - or any kind of visual reference? Or are these strictly out of your head?

    1. These are all drawn from photo reference. Ive found that strictly drawing out of my own head for too long leads to stagnation.
