Some quickies...

These are all between 30 seconds and 1 minutes.

What do you guys do when you're in a drawing rut? I've found myself in a little of a rut myself with life drawing and from time to time can get pretty frustrated when things aren't looking the way I think I can usually make them.

How do you guys deal with this, and how do you overcome it? I know it happens to even the best of us, so I figure some of you can answer this one!

I deal with it by returning to whatever length I'm good at (usually the gesture poses). If THOSE become crappy, I take the gesture and really exaggerate it or apply it to a character I've got going on. Sometimes it gets me weird looks from the models but fuck what they think.

That's what I do anyway. ^_^ In your case maybe you could turn the pose into a layout?

Also, the World-Changing Scallywags now have a blog up too. Our link is

I try to get myself back into drawing by taking up a different medium I haven't done in a while. Charcoal usually helps because it's so loose and easy to work with (in my opinion).

I also think that drawing while listening to music helps.
