Quick sketch #1

Charcoal pencil on smooth newsprint
Quick sketch is definitely one of my favorite things to do. My schedule these days doesn't really allow me to attend live figure drawing classes, so whenever I can, I use these great figure drawing resources from New Masters Academy's YouTube channel. There is also another great channel called Croquis Cafe.
I'm still not very fast at quick sketching. I often just pause the video and try to work on the pose longer than 5 or 10 minutes, just so I can focus more on understanding the anatomy and form. But since this is supposed to be quick sketching, I never go over 30 minutes for a single pose.
I'm still pretty slow though, and I might never be as fast as others, but hey, I want to enjoy the process. That, I feel, is the most important thing about drawing or painting.
