4 Simple Tweaks to Transform Beginner Drawings

Before throwing my old life drawings away, I took a marker pen and saw if I could fix them quickly. It was a lot easier than I thought it would be! I was so much closer to good figure drawings than I thought I was, and maybe you are too. Some of the adjustments required were to push the angles of the pose a little bit. Often this means finding the squash and stretch in the torso and emphasising it. Sometimes, it was just a small adjustment in the proportions of the figure that made all the difference. But some I could just trace the old drawings, and just by using more confident marks and leaving some things out, the drawings improved tenfold!
