    Thanks Paul.  I think the hundred day challenge is a great way to get daily practice.  My drawing teacher in college always insisted we complete a 100 page sketchbook every semester so that stuck with me.  I must say sometimes I absolutely hate it, other days it’s effortless.  I love how Bridgman’s figures fit together.  Thanks for commenting on my work!  I hope you have a fast and complete recovery.

    Hi Jaylene, so nice that you have the discipline to be already in your 2nd challenge! I just forfeited my 1st one on day 70 cause I couldn’t keep up. But will be restarting fron day 1 today

    Anyways I love the movement you bring to the hips of your figures, that’s something I don’t see that often, and I don’t see at all in my own figures. Will definitely keep an eye in your progress for more inspiration

    Thank you! I appreciate your kind comments.  To be perfectly honest I miss a day here and there.  Sometimes its hard to keep going especially when it feels like my figures are getting worse instead of better.  I saw a you tube video recently that  made me aware of the natural tendency to straighten out a figure as you are drawing it.  Some kind of brain bias or something.  Anyway it helped me to better understand Mr. Vilpu’s insistence to not copy the model.  I try to mark the line of the shoulders in relation to the line of the hips and then draw draw the structure in relation to those two angles.  My proportions still need a lot of work and I don’t think I got a grasp on the rotation of the figure. It is what it is.  If you are interested here is the video I mentioned:  Top 5 Gesture Drawing Mistakes & How to Fix Them! – YouTube  Good luck and your 100 Day Challenge 🙂

    It ended up being the day after tomorrow.  To wrap up this challenge I tried a master study after Ilia Repin.  I’m glad this challenge is over.
