I've been trying to be quicker with these lately. One of my rules is to not spend more than 20 minutes. Almost like gesture sketching. I'm just trying to get the essence of the pose as fast as possible. I've noticed I'm going a lot faster this week (10-15 minutes per pose tops) but that might be because I'm anxious to work on my current shot. Today i think i should've spent a little longer on the pose.... It's close enough, but i see some weight issues that could've been fixed pretty quick if I'd just slowed down a little. oh well.. practice is just that!
