MyFigureCollection has lots of pictures. A lot of the user uploads aren't useful as references, but some of them take a million angles of their figures. Most figures will have the promotional images too which have a bunch of angles. I guess find a character you like and see if they have anything useful.

Alternatively you could just look through figure shops like AmiAmi and use the promotional pictures.

That's a good idea! Would you happen to have any good resources/catalogs for anime figures with multiple angles?

I started using anime figures for references, but I’m not sure that’s what you’re looking for. Maybe unpainted ones.

Understanding your preferences for productivity is definitely a big factor in your ability to improve. Honestly, I wish I could really get in the zone and not consciously think about time, since I think that's when you're truly enjoying what you're doing, but I suppose chipping away at things keeps the mind active. Everyone's different so figuring out what works for you is a process you slowly discover over months and years
Well thanks! There's not really much competing with the old master sculptors, but I need to find some resources for modern figure sculptures. They're great practice for shading since it's all one tone but there's only so many of them that have survived, and their condition varies. I guess I could just look up some quality 3D models though...

Ah I see. I’m not good at tracking my drawing time yet. I have sort of the reverse problem, where it’s hard to start but if I can get into the ~flow~ I get lost in it and lose track of time. So if I’m using pomodoro or something, when the interval is up I get pulled out of the flow.
Also I know it’s David! I was trying to say you did a good job getting the statue look down.

It's Michelangelo's The David, so statue was what I was going for. Learn your pop culture, seieki!
I, uh, forgot to crop this cause I was a bit distracted. But yeah, the tally marks are just an alternative way of keeping track of time. Every tick is 5 minutes, with every set of ticks + circle being 30 minutes. My attention span is pretty bad, so I got into the habit of making myself draw in 5/10 minute intervals using a timer. Keep track of how you spend your time if you don't already. It's a valuable resource?

Nice nice shading, very statue-y. Also what are you tallying at the bottom?
