Here are another set from lesson 9. This time the focus is on fluid poses.
Towards the end I was experimenting by holding the pencil in a different way to not go into pressing down so hard at first. It was working for me, things felt more fluid that way.
I also got a kneaded eraser. I never really liked kneaded erasers but at least there are no crumbs to clean up. Also with it I can wipe the whole drawing and retain some faint lines to build back up on after. Preston Blair mentions doing that it in his book.
Also, I was looking at some other people’s blogs who John has referenced on his site. They are great:
