Thanks Penny Bird for pointing out perspective issues. I looked at it again got a critique. And one of the objectives of that class is to improve on that piece. So I'll redraw it. Since marker is unforgivable.
Thanks Jackpot anjr90 I'm starting to get the hang of the studies. They don't seem tedious anymore.
Thanks Jamesy for the encouraging words
I've been looking at Robert Beverly Hale and his figure drawing books are awesome. and some leg studies. And I realized that I am awesomely bad at feet, which I will start avoiding and start studying.
Nice studies! I'd say watch those lines...try to define form with more shadow and less lines...and when you render make sure to follow the form.
Good start to your digital WIP. What I would do is make the character look less flat by rendering her out. It looks like you went into detail pretty quickly...try rendering before you go into the small details.
good that u posted i understand it can be a little daunting ur first time .
anyway, this might sound like 'anti advice' but anatomy studies are kind of futile as far as what u should be learning.
by far the most crucial elements of a convincing character are gesture and weight. anatomy is a lot less important than a lot of people around here would have u believe. copying muscle after muscle from a bridgeman or hogarth book wont really help u unless ur ready for it. what i would suggest is a hell of a lot of figure drawing, from life and from reference, most importantly trying to capture the weight and the gesture of the subject
So far so good! Yeppersz! I do think that, when you draw in manga style you tend to loose a lot of proportions from the studies you've done, seemed flat. You should perhaps, draw the forms and definitons or trace the character designs you're going to draw on top of the studies you've done, 'til you get the hang of it. Life drawing would help a lot too! On buses, subway, figure drawings etc...
Keep it up with the studies! You're doing great! I think drawing from looking at yourself in the mirror and photos would be good also I hope this helps.
Nice work! I came across a site that might really help...I'm gonna start using it as well. http://fineart.sk/index.php?cat=0
