When you have more time on your hands (20 min), you have to approach the drawing in the same mindset: big relationships and measuring first. This is actually a very simple drawing; it just has a bit of rendering on it made possible by drawing bigger. This is a boon but also a danger. It can be easy to get lost inside those big shapes.
With more time, I can begin considering more parts in relation to the center mass of the torso. It’s all the relationships that constitute the gesture, and the torso is like my baseline upon which I can compare. These are still quick - here 2 minutes each.
