    WIP - character sketch for painting (partial nude)

    This is a preliminary sketch for a painting. I'm trying to work a little more sketchy in the beginning of the process, be a little looser than my normal stuff. Anywho. Anyone see anything glaring (other than the squint in her eye?)

    I'm surprised no one has replied to this one yet Swan. It looks pretty good. Her legs look a bit long and skinny to me. The shin in the right leg looks like it has a dent in it. I would change the highlighting there. Also take the two curved shadings out under the knee. They make it look like there are three kneecaps. I like the "squint" in her eye. It goes with the set to her mouth. Good work all in all, just a few minor details that need taking care of. Good luck with it.

    Art gives me a life of extreme challenge, frustration, accomplishment and contentment. Nothing less will do!

    Updated the sketch. I see what you mean about the leg (I just knew it wasn't right, but couldn't place my finger on why...)

    Anyway, thanks a bunch. I was starting to worry that no one had replied either. That's always either very good or very bad, and I'm always skeptical of it being the former.

    I like the sketch, particularly the hair. I think there might be something off on the legs still. Should the bent leg be hitting the ground on the same plane as the one bearing the weight? Or maybe it's that her weight-bearing leg needs to be shifted a little the right to keep her balanced. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but something struck me as slightly off.

    Look forward to seeing this finished.

    Hmmm....*ponder*...takes a second look...

    Takes a third look....

    Yeah, you know, I think you're right. If the angle on the bent leg was less severe, that foot would come forward from the weight-bearing foot and look a little better. I'll play with it when I have access to the file again. Away from my normal computer right now.

    Oh, and she _will_ be leaning against a wall, which should take up some of the stress on that weight-bearing leg. So yeah, you're right - she is a bit off-balance. Fortunately that's a planned thing.

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Hi

    I like the pic.

    I´m sorry that I can´t give any good crits.

    Anyway it would be more intresting for me and probably many more, if you posted the updates instead of just upgrading the one pic, so that I could see the progression, so if you have the webspace please keep the old versions and add the new ones later on. Sorry about the bad english, hope you understand what I mean.

    Edit 1;Ps: and it would be easier to see if it´s going the right way both for you and us other.
    Edit 2: Man you reply quick didn´t even had the time to do my edit

    My sketchbook flawed to the max page 5
    Ps:Hope you understand my English.
    Remember my advices taste best with a grain of salt.

    Fair enough. I've been fairly lazy about the matter. I don't HAVE old ones anymore since I haven't been keeping them as seperate files, but I'll be sure to do so from now on.
