ANtY93: hmm, I'm sure there are so many people out there more qualified to give you technical advice than me. So I'll just give you my own perspective, regardless of the "practicing" part: first of all try to understand what YOU find sexy, or anyway a subject/reference/pose that in someway compels you to draw. I find that there is always something that captures my interest, may be it a certain curve/shape, an angle, a position of a hand, lingerie, a look, the hair that falls in a certain way, the light...look for that, and build on it. What the world doesn't need is the same take on sexuality, or follow the same beaten path, we're all individuals. But you're right, I should one day post a picture with the reference that started it, it might give the idea of how far I go from it. The reference for me is just a starting point, and not viceversa (i.e. my goal is not to reproduce it, but build on it.
I hope it helps.
Mr. Blonde: Well, I take that as a huge compliment (especially coming from a great artist like you). I can't help you in explaining why, but I'm really glad that you appreciate the stuff I do. I think I will continue posting, but probably I'll start over with a new thread, and try to keep it more focused. As soon as I start it I will come back here to redirect.
Edit 6 nov 2012: I suspended this thread at the end of 2011, with the intention of starting a brand new one. In the end I just stopped posting here, and always felt a bit sorry for it. I have a lot to catch up, a lot of new material to share, and probably a lot of useful advice and pointers that I have been missing. So I thought I might as well start from where I finished off.
(so I guess this answers krysjez's and rumpenstiltzkin's question)
I will post a random bulk, from sketches to more finished material. Hopefully more to come.
