    Nice shaping up anatomy study .You will learn a lot from this kind of training even if it shows result a little late.But little by little you will understand the body better.
    Keep working

    It looked a lot nicer in the sb.

    The reference I used was this. I wanted to focus on portaits. I dont think I chose a good one..cause there wasnt alot of light source. Especially when I changed it to greyscale : /


    Please feel free to give any advice on how I can upgrade this. I do have questions about the shading in regards to pencils..

    This was the reference I used

    Going through the bridgeman book and studying about twisting figures.
    I dont know why I seem not to understand it. Its just two boxes going in different directions and you just have to draw the lines which connect the two. and the mass between the two represents the abdomen.

    It feels so unnatural. This is worse than doing really hard coding or recoursion. i get it but dont get it.

    nice studies/sketches.
    i think your understanding of anatomy could benefit greatly from going to life drawing classes... also studying how the bones of the body look and interact with the muscles to attain certain shapes. i found that as soon as i understood the muscles and bone structure underneath the skin, it was much easier to imagine the figure in 3 dimensions... and understand how the figure works in different positions.
    other than that just practice, practice and more practice.

    as for shading, it becomes easier if you think of the body as geometric shapes/volume.

    anyways keep on practicing those drawing muscles.

    Thank You Kleewyck, I did take a couple of life drawing classes last year for about a good year or so. Unfortunately I am unable to to take more due to economic reasons but. I am keep in mind on how the bones and muscles interact with the body. Thank you for reminding on how to step it up on my next sketches in regards to shading and posing.. I realize I need to do it more often to grasp and absorb the knowledge from the studies that I am doing.



    Another Addition, I'll add more later on.
