I think you have got your form and face studies really down well. You should try more  gestural body angles and foreshortened body shapes ?. Do you prefer caricaturing for interest's sake?

Thank you for your comments!

I'm sorry, but I don't know what you mean by "gestural body angles". Can you give me some examples of what you mean?

With every live figure drawing session, I do draw gesture drawings (quick 1-3 minute poses) to warm up and get a feel for the model, but I don't post most of those, only the more finished drawings. (I could, though, if that is your request!) In most of those finished, longer drawings the models need a more relaxed pose, so it's rare the poses have a lot of dynamic movement to them.  I think my gallery has a few examples of foreshortening (and "body angles"?), but I don't really like to do extreme foreshortening because I don't find a big foot in the foreground or the top of a person's head to be all that attractive, and also most of the poses are short (half hour or less). I prefer to draw more natural poses that show a model's "face and form" as you say , and overall beauty in both. 

I'm also not sure what you mean about "caricaturing for interest's sake". Do you mean as a hobby?  What I post on this site is not my commercial artwork, just the artwork I do for fun and practice. I do draw caricatures professionally for clients (money) as well as portraits, illustrations and some graphic design.

--------  nah its ok ..  please don't quote me too much, i like what you do. I am interested in awkward poses.. extremes too. It challenges the old training. I had a live drawing teacher who gave us 5 second poses... Its not what you think.

haha... yes, I've had teachers who liked to torture students, too.   Quick poses are good for those who need to learn proportions and figure construction. I'm not a big fan of scribbles or stacked shapes.  I like to do quick poses when drawing a new model to learn his/her body type and proportions and to "warm up" my brain and hand.  You can also learn a lot by editing down to the basics with a five or ten minute pose. But after a few quickies, I am ready to get down to business.

That's classical and 'right' I know...... my teacher was a freak...we had no warm ups.... His time was not our time...... we had to bin all that 'pre-trained thinking' (he called it)  for him. With Him It's not eye training but visual ballet....  Seriously.. The ascetic feeling was the focus. If he caught you drawing a spatial edge... grrrr   He wanted the equivalent of the blur (that 'Dash of the incredibles' or 'Flash' made.  Like a blurred photograph. Gesture ... That's all!    That was first consideration.  His point (I could understand as a massage therapist) was that  the body is not devoid of emotion and should not be dep;icted that way as a m,ere shape. Giving an image of a figure feeling, not proportional correctness was the job of the artist.  ... Well for me... well I ... um... err......   I don't know oif the guy is still around... Stephen Wesley Gorton was his name... In Paddington, Sydney, Australia.    I'm not homophobe, but I'm pretty sure he was a ____________ individual .  <-- (insert required modern term)
