Copying Poses with Oval Shapes

This is an exercise that you can try out. Find pose photos and start copying the pose (eyeball it). Then draw on top of the oval shapes.

I consider myself a perfectionist, and sometimes that can be a bad thing in art when using photo references. This is how I train myself to let go, and be loose. The goal isn’t to copy the photo exactly, even when it’s just a pose that I’m after.
