I’ve been setting aside time every day over these past few weeks to sketch soccer players. The focus has been on keeping things quick (20 minutes or less) with a focus on capturing the essence of each player. I have gotten notably faster every day since I started. My first few passes were far more tentative, worrying about the exact placement of lines and such, and took the full 20. By the last few, however, I felt much more confident and took roughly ten. It just goes to show how quickly you can start to improve if you make sure to have specific goals to hit!
Here are a few of my favorites:
