    Nice studies! When sketching think about the hierarchy of importance when laying in your contours. Some areas you draw are darker and thicker than others for no reason. Be conscious of the weight of your lines and you'll get some stellar results. Now...UPDATE!

    Shmaba - I actually know all about those proportions so im surprised you'd make that remark? xD I'll look into it tho, i did recuont and it seemed i was missing one head at most, not 2? will have to recheck ^^

    MarkWinters - invaluable advice as always ._. and spot on too. i have no clue how to control lineweight ;-; so yeah... im gonna have to keep trying

    a few pages off my small ideas book!
    sketches off the big A3 practice book (studies) will come later, i need my cam for that as its too big to scan ><


    the random preggor women have the IRC to be blamed. they inspired the last sketch which im thinking of turning into a fully fledged piece... thoughts?

    Nov - you can have all of my smoothness, I'll trade it for your skill!

    Here's a tiny update, to see where I'm at when i draw without ref after doing studies for a while now... not sure I've improved but here goes nothing! First the offspring of an IRC TD "Parasite Fungi", I really need to lay those skull preggors down to paper properly or they'll never get out of my head... then a little OC doodle test, and lastly a little schooling in OC by Slash, as you might notice the topic was drawing boobs properly. xD how appropriate! altho very enlightening. red outline is me, black is him correcting/schooling. OC is fun, should do it more often!

    Hey babes, I'm gonna sound cliched here.
    I'd love to see more studies of folks in various poses. A lot of your chars are in very similar stances, sometimes fairly stiff. And don't be afraid of feet. Except my feet, they smell quite ripe.

    What an enjoyable SB. Love the characters.

    If you want to get rid of that white outline on your animated gif, you need to make a transparent background for it.

    Sure, blame the scanner you could try to ajust levels in photoshop.

    some crits;

    2nd pic - legs are different length
    3rd pic - Mens legs seem short to me (but that might also be because cookie indoctrinated me with 'miget legs' )

    For the rest everying looks fine to me maybe change the right arm (left for us) on the Chow character, it hangs kinda awkward.

    moar updatez pls

    good job!

    Maybeh thinking is the *problem* just draw, even gives you more time to draw more. they look pretty fine to me though. There is one thing about the chubby woman; because you let the clothes fold at the knee like that, it looks like its twisted very awkwardly.

    One more think about the last pic in post 42+ post 43: Dont forget the feetz!

    ps. you didnt forget to reply twas in the chat ^^.

    Dave is right about the knee fold. that whole thigh looks like its viewed directly from the side because of it. Its quite possible that the cloth fold was similar to that in real life, but sometimes what we see won't work as well on paper, so you need to "enhance" reality a little.

    You didn't fail at the thumbnailing! In fact, thats exactly what thumbnails are for, roughing out ideas for poses, composition and angles.. It helps you narrow down what you're looking for, and it will give the more refined sketches more direction. I'd like to see you pick the thumbnail you're most satisfied with, and make five thumbnails based on that, before beginning the more refined sketches. Also we need to get you started on digital painting, your chow will be an excellent guinea pig for that.

    this sleeping lady is really good, your lines show a lot more confidence than with a pencil. I'd like to see you do more of these with pen, it will help you put more of a though process into your lines, and it will keep you from second guessing your lines as well.

    Good job.




    //Edit: ROFL, now i wanna draw your "tetas" too. (HEY, IT MEANS GRANDMOTHERS, RIGHT?! T__T )

    Hi petite, sorry about not replying for so long. You've been very busy!

    Post #32: I like the kid concepts here; remind me of Betty Boop and for some reason Ed Grimley in places. That pregnant painting would make for a cool illustration, you have any thoughts about fleshing it out more?

    Post #34: Always good to draw without reference to see where you are at. I don't do it enough myself. Try to keep your lines as clean as you can - go ahead and erase out the ones that didn't work for the sake of readability.

    Post #37: Don't stress about 1 minute poses. They're always really tough. With such an extreme time limit, place most of your emphasis on gesture and don't be afraid to really exaggerate the motion lines. When you begin popping forms and construction on top, your figures will naturally start tightening up. However, since you started with such a heightened sense of attitude in your poses, they'll retain most of the life from the initial gesture.

    Post #48: Last couple of posemaniacs pages are looking good! Keep it up!

    Good you started with figure studies.
    You can always just draw plain stick figure before u add "volume" to the figure, to make positioning much easier!

    Good job, keep it up!

    Its great to see you're keeping up the gesture studies! Also you can never study enough anatomy! Like we've been focusing on lately, the shoulder area is easier to construct if you can clearly visualize the underlying bone structure and muscles. Also drawing from life is a great exercise, take all the chances you get to do that! If your subjects have the patience, try spending more time on your lifedrawings, making sure all the features and proportions are correct before starting the rendering, cuz on that chick her shoulders don't align, and her eyes are kinda looking in two different directions.

    Good work!

    Great start on these CHOW WIPs. Scheherazade has a pleasant flow to its composition. As far as The Little Mermaid, I would try to tone down the brightness of the bioluminescent light as well as the lighter areas in the fins ; save your whites as much as possible for your highlights in your focal area. Once you start putting color on top of this, you can probably get away with using warms and cool relationships instead of value to suggest light; that way, again, you can conserve pure white for tiny areas you really want to pop.

    Regarding Mr. Craig, great start!. I would add some harder lines around his chin (since there's bone there) and on the right side of his face (our left) to emphasize his skull structure and give him a more rugged appearance. Group his hair into clumps as much as you can and try to introduce varying line weights (e.g. thick, thin, sharp, pointed tapers, soft taper, etc.) to give it a more organic feel. I'd also overall darken the areas around his eyes a bit because they shouldn't be receiving that much light. Finally, be careful about putting such sharp transitions in firmer/softer areas such as the cheeks; it should be a little more subdued and softer, even in men. Keep going!

    Hi Petite!
    Your mermaid design is really original, I like the lantern idea! And your funny characters are nice too, but you have to draw mooooore!!! They have a nice feeling, I like the creepy / cute association in them. When your technique will be better they'll rule the world!
