Life Drawing: bloke with a pole

Having a physical, straight line - in this case the pole - manipulated by the life model as they move through poses really helps me see weight and line of action. Here are a couple of 3 minute warm up sketches:


 Trying to keep things loose, I have a habit of labouring on drawings which sucks the life out of them. Defeats the purpose of "life" drawings.


Here's a drawing of a longer pose, about 15 mins. You can see the lines starting to stiffen up a bit, I think I managed to capture proportions relatively well. Must work on keeping the lines fluid....
