    As I see many people pointing out your proportions in your figures are off here and there but that's something that you'll improve with with repetition. What I want to see is some personality in those figures. What does their pose tell us about their personality, how about their expression? I know it's just like "well they're a model and they're standing in front of me naked". But do they look tired? Worn out? Are they sleeping? Are they fidgeting? Are they day dreaming? Are they trying to seduce one of your fellow classmates (lol)?

    You're working hard to improve and that's wonderful to see. No doubt you'll get better through time. Just remember to have fun with stuff. Stay creative. ;D

    NeonDuck : thank you for your comment, "drawing more 3d"...the most difficult thing I try to do :-/, In fact i think maybe i'm to slow to draw and don't have many time to draw shadows ....:-/

    "do you erase your construction lines" I try to have a single line, you're certainly right, i'll try to draw more construction lines.


    Dana_T : thank you for your comment to. "What does their pose tell us about their personality" a lot of work waits me for this, don't you think so?

    one more time, I drew this yesterday evening...I draw line of shoulders first then I draw the head and face( I hope it will help me to have better proportions for the entire body ), maybe is it a better way due to the importance of the face....what do you think of it?

    really nice pencils you have here! I have nothing to crit other than to just keep doing what you're doing. Perhaps a little more pencil work on subjects other than the human body. It is such a difficult thing to breakdown into lessons about light and form. If you have time, try and do some more simple still life's (like objects around the house) to help you develop your knowledge of how light works.

    Also, if you haven't read "Colour and Light" by James Gurney, then this book will help you in understanding light and using it in your drawings:

    Good luck!

    dana T : ...I don't speak english very well, so I'm the one who must say " sorry "....I wasn't a very good student during english lesson.... :-p, I said I must work a lot to be able to give some "personnality" to characters i draw.:-/, So you are right, I must be creativ....

    Smael : petit MP pour une explication de liens....j'ai peut etre oublié un detail sous la case "quick reply" il y a une petite case a cocher " show your signature " c'est peut etre celle là qui te pose probleme :-p

    Elophant : thank for your comment, you're absolutely right, i must work colours, the problem is that I've got neither place for this nor model :-/, I hope i will be able to solve this problem quickly.

    ThomasM : thank you to spend time and let a comment on my sketchbook, thank you a lot for this link, it seems to be an interesting books. You're right about drawing more still life...I'll try to have more time for this....

    mafeng, surus : thank you for your comments. Surus, are you a pencil lover? ;-)

    Smael : de bons exos pour l'anatomie????? ben hormis du dessin d'après nature encore et toujours et puis se pencher sur des livres d'anatomie pour comprendre les principes, il y a aussi les bouquins de loomis et le site de kevin chen, la dedans il y a bcp d'explications des volumes simplifiés , ça aide enormement... voila sinon l'étude des vides pour placer tes elements, puis mise en place des volumes simples à la longue ça entre.

    dans la rue ou ailleurs, des seances de nues ou habillés, le meilleurs moyen de connaitre le corps humain pour le representer c'est deja de le copier et de le recopier pour apprendre comment il est.

    les volumes sont inévitables, il faudra tot ou tard en tenir compte.

    matte dans ma signature, j'ai essayé de faire un point sur ce que j'ai appris...et j'ai mis des liens vers des planches de kevin chen, andrew loomis et autres.

    ps : il n'y a pas d'url dans ta signature a premiere vue [ url = ton adresse ] smael [ / url ] sans espaces

    Nice lifedrawings!

    I find that constructing things with volumes help you understand the form better, this also makes it easier to draw things from imagination because you have a better understanding of what you are drawing and how it works in 3d space.

    keep rocking the pencil ^^

    Help wanted

    Eraiasu : I agree with you about volumes, my probleme is that I construct with outlines a lot, I keep volumes in mind and try to have good volumes with lines only, certainly because I'm too slow and I've got a lake of knowledge about anatomy so I need more time to draw...In fact I need to learn more about anatomy.....

    salut ! Pour ton wip, je trouve que la différence de taille entre les 2 persos est vraiment grande, rien qu'en comparant les 2 tetes ca se remarque ! la différence de taille en pers est assez faible, vu que les 2 persos sont quand meme assez proches l'un de l'autre ! Aussi, par rapport a la femme, je pense qu'elle devrait avoir un leger déhanché, les 2 pieds n'étant pas a la meme hauteur, malgré le fait que le pieds le plus bas soit sur la pointe des pieds ! pour les valeurs je trouve qu'elles sont en général trop claires ! on voit que t'as du faire quelques platres ! essaye de regarder chez les grands maitres comme bouguereau et jean léon gérome les valeurs moyennes pour les persos ! Sinon , bonne continuation, et j'espere que ca t'a aidé ! Je me suis inscrit sur ton forum, j'essayerais de poster ce week end ^^

    thank you all for your comments.

    kiki'ndaface : pour les valeurs je suis totallement d'accord avec toi, meme si souvent je vois des models qui pose avec une peau tres claires, j'aimerais un resultat plus dense en terme de valeurs un peu comme ce que j'ai pu mettre (un tout petit peu ) sur le tibia. Idem pour le déhanché que j'ai meme peut etre fait dans le sens opposé, en revanche pour la taille des persos je m'etais posé la question et j'avais un doute, je m'etais dis qu'après tout le mec c'est un guerrier donc pas un nabot...un kratos d'1m20....mini-kratos ....huhuhu...bref je vais avancer sur le mâle et tenir compte de ton point de vue, mais tu as raison la perspective ne permet pas de generer une enorme difference de taille avec le peu de distance qui les séparent.

    Here is the results of last week's sessions...

    Try to draw with 8b mineplumb, lines seems to be awfull, the first portrait more interesting due to lines which are not drawn in light parts...

    two firsts drawings are 15 minutes long each, other are from 3 to 5 minutes...





















    I need to coonstruct more anatomies, I think... but in short time, I don't know if it's possible...

    Without ref....comments and crits are welcome. I think this drawings are boring...the naked body because some proportions are off...we can't know if it's a man or woman body and the position is stiff...the second one is boring because there are no real actions...maybe is there some problems in technic? more contrast? more fluent lines? volumes are not enough shown?
