Nic's sketchbook-NUDITY (and other naughty things)
I'm looking for constructive crits because I'm always looking to improve. Thanks to anyone who takes the time to look and comment.
I'm new at CA but I think it's a great site with a lot to offer!
I don't want to post too much stuff at once but these are all done in the past few months.

I didn't catch that my proportions were off. The first drawing especially. I did have a reference for the guy with the stick. He's a few months old but I do seem to remember struggling with the pose... That's why his one foot got cut off the page.
Here's a few more:

These are the 2 I posted in the "Draw from what everyone looks like thread". I've noticed that taking pictures of my drawings makes them look a lot sloppier than they do on paper. I'm wondering if it's an issue with my technique. I've never really been able to notice a difference when using different leads and generally I use a soft lead and blending stick (or my finger) but honestly I don't pay much attention to whether I pick up a 9B or 4B. Or maybe it's something else? Any advice???

The upper torso needs to be more defined, the right shoulder looks rather bad, and the left side of her face is a bit misshapen. However, you did a good job on the values.

Hi FightingSeraph! Thanks for the crit! I'll actually have to start over and redraw from scratch because I applied fixative (I thought I might have to but it was better than overworking it).
The torso-more definition-I hate to sound stupid but do you mean the overall shape or the detail?
The right shoulder-Too far forward maybe?
Left side of the face-Yeah it's just... bad. I tried to find a reference but I couldn't find anything that was the right angle and I'm not sure I can define exactly what wrong... Is there too much there?
I really tried to fix this stuff first before posting but even though I knew it was somewhat off I couldn't quite pinpoint why. Thanks again for taking he time to leave a comment!!!

So far the main crit I can do to your work is that your figures are lacking a well defined sense of form and structure. I would recommend you studying some Vilppu to improve on that, specially the pages where he teaches how to simplify the human figure using simple volumes (cubes, spheres, etc).

Thanks for the comments everyone!!!
I was in a bit of a slump this week so I didn't get a lot done but I have been trying to finish 50 gestures for the Spartan Camp activity so hopefully I'll have that up tomorrow.
