    Hi,

    Foxtrot Wolfwhistle's signature viewable at http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=177670

    contains many good anatomy tutorials and references.

    It's obviously at a very early stage but I can't make out where the left shoulder (on right hand side of pic) is supposed to be.

    Using reference that is in no way close to the pose you're trying to get isn't helpful at all. It's much harder for someone starting out to try to force one image's features into a different perspective, colour scheme, etc. You basically have to already be able to construct the figure, which would negate the need for reference. I would recommend taking a picture (or having someone else take a picture) of yourself in that pose. There's really not much advice we can give except, get some reference and use it.

    Edit: Ah yeah. Trying to use a diffrent pose for your piece is a bit bad. But if you were willing to use it as a study or redoing your pic, it's a great reference.

    oh the lady is for starting a new picture, not the one i am working on (hence the word "offtopic")
    it would be insane if i tried to pull that off on my picture LOL

    the reference for my WIP image was me except the bathrobe.. which is why i had problems with fabric..? i am sure there's a way to pull the fabric off without needing a ref but i have to know how it works first

    see, i don't have a robe or anything, now what
    or maybe i should just get a piece of clothe, fold it and put it in a foreshortened perspective and work from there idk
    that works too right?

    a-ok updated new picture
    now what
    i am still fucking up with the cloth because i don't have bathrobe but screw it

    idk if it should be guy or girl
    if guy i'll make it square
    if girl i'll add breasts and make her less muscular LOL

    i have problem with the leg (the one left to the screen)
    i mean i want it covered in the shadows yet at the same time it looks "flat"
