For this exercise, I needed to draw a figure using a wedge in the armature of the rectangle. I wanted to draw something fun, so two athletes came to mind: dancers and gymnasts. I decided on a gymnast and found a reference photo online. Pommel horses are level, but I tilted my drawing for the exercise and to add a little motion to the image.

  1. I like the tension you have achieved in the figure – for me, the lines in the sketch underline the tautness of the gymnast. Though not sure about the implied length of his left arm – perhaps you’re starting the forearm too high.
