    Figure Drawing From Virtuo Pose And Visual Ref Books

    Hi, these are a bunch of drawings I did for practice back around March 2007, I believe... from Virtuo Pose CD my friend let me have as well as a visual reference book for facial expressions... It took a while to scan and just recently found them and was hoping to get feedback on them even thought they're older, I'm hoping to post some slightly newerwork soon if I can get a chance. C&C is encouraged, thanks!

    I think this stuff is great!!

    Obviously great practice. I like your figures, specifically the set of the woman sitting with her feet propped up by a stool. Not the easiest pose in the world and you handled it very well from a variety of angles.

    The face studies look good too. I think you lose the correct placement of the features at times and make some relationship mistakes, especially when trying to convey an expression (The size of the eyes and width of the mouth tend to get out of proportion.)

    It seems to me your trying to create the expressions too much with the feature itself instead of using the whole face. For example, when your mad, your eyes appear to narrow. But you can't just make the eyes narrow and get the right effect, more is going on.
    Your eye brows drop down, you get that furrow between them and on your nose. The skin over your eyes but under your brow folds over and creates an angle.
    I would suggest doing more studies of the individual features and their surrounding areas to really understand how they effect each other. Don't just look at the eye, look at the whole upper third of the head. Don't just study the lips, but the whole muzzle of the mouth from the bottom of the nose to the the chin. That sort of stuff.

    Hope thats helpful. Awsome stuff, Thx for sharing!!

    Thanks Mute and Paul, I appreciate the genoousity.

    Mute, I realy appreciate the feedback and crit, it's finally good to hear an outside opinion bout this stuff and what's working and what's not so i know what subtle stuff to be aware of and what i'm missing... these are a lil old now so hopefully i've improved since then, but no doubt that is definitley useful and something i will make sure to pay close attention to in the future.
