    Very beautiful renderings! Nice grasp of weight and light. How long are these?

    nice 8D

    In the third one, one of her breasts is a little to high on the chest, but not much.

    There are some things you could consider:

    Try to make your line weights actually indicate where the weight of the model is or where the stress of the pose is taking place on the model.

    You can use value to cheat. Sometimes you can push pieces of the figure to the front and back using value, even when that particular value isn't really seen. For example just shade a leg that is receeding into the background and it pushes the other forward, the value may not be as seen, but when someone looks at the drawing they aren't always looking at the model are they? Nobody knows you're cheating if it works :-)

    Watch proportions on your arms.

    While your style of shading adds a great mood to the drawings, it also flattens the figure. Use contoured line to create the form, following the shape of the actual nuances of the body will make it appear so much more sculptural and substantial. Hell, try sculpture study of a model sometime.

    Yup, thats my crit. Some of it may be stylistic choice, but those are things just worth mentioning. They look great still. Keep drawing!

    You have an interesting style. The figures have a liquidy feel to them that moves around the negative space. It's fun to look at. Good work. I really miss life drawing sessions.

    its beautiful!

    The curve of the waist is good.
    I think that the line of the waist is the female most beautiful portion.

    By the way, is my English strange?

    great job! the rendering on the skin is my favorite part - maybe add more expressive line weights? Thick and Thin. Although it depends what you are into - When I draw from life I try Not to think of lines at the edge at all and think about the form and surface. great stuff!

    These have a nice feel. It looks like you are avoiding finishing the feet and hands altogether. I know these are tough areas, especially for quick studies, but you might want to focus on working the whole figure more completely in some poses. The rendering is nice, the proportions are a little bit wayward. I know that I have a tough time pulling these areas off together unless I construct the entire figure first THEN shade it. Overall good stuff though.

    Respectability is a cloak for the hypocrite. Inwardly we commit every crime in thought, but outwardly we are irreproachable.

    dude your lines are soo much better then mine!!
    Your lighting is good...your shading is awesome.
    I love it all. You might want to try to play with the line a little bit more. Your lines would look awesome as gestures but these look a little long. So where ever the line hits the body i think it should be lighter. that's my only crit. Other then that these are great. Keep up the good work.

    Although your drawing is very good.It only praises and it is not good that it is.
    There are some weak points in your sketch.

    First, it is completing a sketch.
    And you are drawing previously from the favorite portion.you like the line applied to the waist from the female belly,don't you?
    Even when you are weak, you need to draw firmly to the line of a hand, a face, and a head.It is because it is the shortcut in which it makes progress.

    Thank you very much gentlmen! All your advices have been very helpfull! I know I have a problem finishing up the hands and feet. But the thought that ocuured to me was that I should concentrate on the body during those 20 min poses more than anything else since its rare that a naked woman would pose for you to draw for free :p .
    Thanx again!
