I did also a page of rib cage/pelvis cubes on the tram.

Second attempt at week 2 homework, with a page where I show the 4 steps (gestures, masses, landmarks, perspective). At this stage it make the problem more tractable I think.
Failed the legs completely but I think it's an improvement. On the drill front, tetromino, cylinders and wrapping drills:

First attempt at week 2 homework. Gestures + shapes + connections + landmarks + torso/arms/legs perspective. It doesn't look very good. Will need to do 25 of this before friday. This is going to be challenging. With this first attempt, I have at least a benchmark to measure progress.

Did more gestures today than usual. 17 left to do to complete week 1 homework. Pentel Brush Pen is definitely helping me using less line to do my gestures. This is an improvement. Still a lot of failed gestures but here are the one I am happy with:
What I feel I could improve is the gestures flow, the transition between line is a bit to abrupt. And I still unsure how to gesture the legs properly.

Continuing week 1 homework with 10 gestures at the Plaster collection. I need 2-5 minutes per gesture, still a bit too slow. Will have to speed up if I want to reach 100 before saturday.
This actually a kid strangling a goose !
As for the drill, only one page of tetromino.

Still struggling with the gesture homework. I did this after watching the lecture video. Not very happy about today's gestures. Too many lines. I did 10 today from the Plaster Cast collection. Here is the best I could do
Two pages of drills. Tetromino rotation and sphere extrudition. ;)

Did 10 gestures from characterdesigns.com. More difficult to do than from the plaster cast collection. I kept messing the head/body proportions.
Did two pages of drills, one tetromino rotation page (very challenging for me) and one page of arcs.

Did two very short thumbnails of a spring flower from the field in front of where I live. Didnt spend enough time on it but I am fascinated by their construction. Very geometrical and mechanical.
I spent too much time on the drill page today. Not enough time for the sketch.

30 minutes at the Succulent collection. Still unsure about creating a good value scale and using white gel properly.
Sphere studies as drill. I have a tendency to draw circle that are a bit flat. When I draw them they look fine but If I turn the page upside down, they look like potatoes. I hope I can correct this.
