(10s is seriously quick!
I'm not sure I even looked at the paper in that time)
I spent most of Saturday at the Northern Film School taking a fascinating workshop on Drawing Figures for Animation. Five solid hours of live drawing, with the longest sitting at 20 minutes - exhausting but exhilarating. And seriously good practice. We did a mixture of contour drawings, gesture drawings and charicatures with charcoal, pencil and marker pens. I came away with about eighty sketches, and a whole lot more confidence in figure drawing.

Sometimes it is worth putting a time limit on your work to focus your attention and really make you look. Then it's up to you whether you stick to the rules, break the rules or abandon the rules altogether!
