    Hey there!
    Thanks for your comment Turbosnail,I am anxious to make that drawing table myself!
    So,I could scan today's work in my school,I hope that I can do that more often.
    I was studying the female form,and to my surprise,it is actually a bit easier than the male form,maybe it is because the less defined muscles.The crappy ones at the side were done while watchin Riven Phoenix,the rest of it is from imagination,experimenting with forms(which works and which doesn't).This experimentation takes quite a long time because the quess work,but when you find the ideal shape,you never forget it.The top one is done by drawing the gesture from posemaniacs then drawing the rest of it from memory.
    The digital one is a sketch from 2 days ago I think,it is just a basic design I am thinking about(sort of a cyborg femme fatale).
    So,that's it for today,sorry for my long absence,I hope that I can finally update at least every two days!

    Cheers!

    That woman in armour is looking FAB!! You seem to be getting more and more definition in your sketches. Just remember, when doing development sketches it pays to be a bit less busy with the line work ... especially with the final image that you lay over. I tend to get busy myself, but in so doing I cover a lot of the important line work that relates to the actual form of the image. You are really improving so keep up the great progress!

    Thanks for your advice Shambok,and thanks for being so active in my thread!
    Doing posemaniacs now,mostly female form,I will post it tonight because MY SCANNER HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!

    As I've done a lot of anatomy studies while I didn't have a scanner,I will post one or two of them up daily to keep the thread alive.

    Cheers!

    Okay,this "updating daily" thing won't work,but at least one update per 2 days would be good...
    So here are some more female body studies,I wonder why doing these is much more fun and rewarding than drawing male bodies...
    I entered a contest,the theme of my drawing can be ANYTHING,so I will tell the name of the painting I will do,and you will see WIP stuff soon.
    So,the name is:"The Creation of the Machine"(based on Michelangelo's "Creation of Adam")

    Cheers!

    hello!

    hello DSmith.

    yup I use the color_erase pencils, old animation habit. Overall I don't like to sketch in graphite or charcoal, I find them too messy and smudgy. I also use the black color erase ones instead of pencils because it can go to black, or black prismacolors.

    I see you are attacking the female form , good luck

    a few notes to remember. now these are generalities but are a good place to start.

    Females have narrower shoulders than males so be careful you don't make them too large, the broader you make a females shoulders the more manly she will feel.

    Female hips are wider than males. So if you draw the hips too narrow the female form starts to turn more boyish and won't have the feeling of a woman, so draw your hips a little wider.

    What lesson are you on in the Riven dvds? When watching his vids try not to draw other stuff while listening to him, just pay close attention to what he's going over and draw the stuff he is. Then after try drawing it from memory if you have any sports that are unclear go back to the previous lesson, wash rinse repeat.

    What other books are you studying from?

    hehe parents... OK just explain to them that you aren't drawing skeletons and bones because you are worshiping Satan and let them know as an artist you need to know the bones and all this sort of information to be able to create your own images convincingly. Same with the ladies, just try to use non offensive pics.


    also watch the necks of your figures:women tend to have more slender necks, make the neck too thick or too short and you loose those feminine qualities.

    annnnd one final note: be careful when using posemaniacs. While useful for pose ideas, its figures have no sense of weight or life, so use them for reference but not for copying.
