    Sounds good to me! I'm excited!

    I would suggest starting a new thread today for the challenge, and then after the deadline putting up a 'finals' thread with a poll- the same format as the...

    I agree with your choices. I'm not too keen on the combination idea - these "random idea generator" style topics tend to be too limiting. I'd be cool with doing the John Doe alien first, and then...

    Hi Ray! There's no sculpting challenge set up here, but I asked if sculpture was acceptable in Character of the Week competitions and was told yes (and then, being a bum, I didn't finish an entry). ...

    Art: It's hard to tell without a picture of the whole...

    It's hard to tell without a picture of the whole sculpt, but she seems very short-waisted, like there's no room between her hips and ribcage. I think you may need to adjust her proportions before...

    Proko has a whole series of videos on drawing the head that should be very helpful for you. They're geared for drawing from life, but the...

    You may be right. But, I think part of it, too, is the distinction between hyper-real and photo-real. Photos have their own inherent distortions, and translating those into a painting just gives...

    How about the four humors: blood, bile, black bile, and phlegm? Each humor (body fluid) is connected to a personality type, physical attributes, and the four elements- lots of opportunities for...

    I think it may help you to have a "straight" anatomy atlas as well; I like the classic Paul Richer book. This will make more clear what the actual structure is that Bridgman is schematizing/...

    Great stuff! I especially like your pen-and-ink drawings from Banff. This thread makes me want to draw some landscapes.

    To add to that: you can't just read the book straight through and expect to get much out of it. Read a section and do the exercises until you feel like you have some understanding before you move...

    My dad worked at a garage, and they would sometimes get parts with big sheets of paper crumpled around them as packing. I would carefully smooth those out and happily cover them in dinosaurs.

    I can see how you'd be irritated, and I admit I may have overstated the case. I haven't really thought about this topic much before and I may have gotten carried away by my own train of thought.

    On the contrary, you unnecessarily delimit pornography. Nudity is not pornography and pornography is not nudity, but those images are designed primarily to titillate - admittedly in a more subtle,...

    So, I did a quick Google search of Zhaoming Wu. Porn all the way. Beautiful, subtle porn, but still porn. Lots of images of women lolling in their sunlit boudoirs, stretching languidly and idly...

    If you read old National Geographic articles you'll find lots of information (and photos) of women working their asses off. Even into the twentieth century in the Balkans and Near East, it was...

    One thing I think that people are leaving out - the expectation of passivity is an upper class one. Poor women work, rich women loll. So, for a man, being able to support a woman who doesn't have...

    The muscle you are talking about - the frontal belly of the epicranial or occipitofrontal muscle- is difficult to expose in that kind of dissection. Unlike most muscles, its insertion is not on...

    Modeling and Sculpting the Human Figure by Edouard Lanteri has a brief but helpful section on drapery- he describes both how to set up drapery for life studies, and explanations of the kinds and...

    Just taking a break now and again to focus on something far away is a big help. Look out the window, or at least across the room. Let your ciliary muscles relax a while.

    To add to that: I strongly recommend against diving into theory first. It won't make any sense until you apply it. At the same time, just learning how to construct perspective by rote, without the...

    Horned helmets are known from pre-Viking Scandinavia, but they were probably ceremonial, not something warriors actually wore in battle.
