    The first picture looks cool, it looks like it's intended to be such impresionalistic, just the leg is mabe too small.

    the girl in the midle "The Official - Draw From "What Does Everyone Look Like?" Thread" is very very very pretty. But it's maybe more about he model than about
    drawing

    thanks asiJa didn't quite get the foreshortening on the leg quite right on the first picture, but then I was more worried about getting it to look human

    "The Official - Draw From "What Does Everyone Look Like?" Thread" is a great place to practice some portraiture and see what everyone looks like.

    Nice sketches and paintings, keep it up! That girls looks like a male because the proportions are a bit off, nose to mouth distance, large chin.

    It has been a long time since I did any figurative sketches and finally did a quick female torso study. Done with soft pastel on recycled 8 x 6 mounted Wallis, sketching this small with thick sticks of pastels really makes it difficult to land the marks correctly which resulted in multiple corrections (still not sure if some of those marks are correct or not)

    This is a great comeback, you’ve started this sketchbook three years ago,
    then you disappeared, we got worried, but now you are back with a big
    statement. I like great comebacks, cause your traditional paintings and
    pencil drawings are great, very inspiring. I love to see Ronda Rousey,
    and I like to see her sweat. Hard. You got her likeness very well,
    and this is just a fantastic job. Hope to see you stay more active
    and post more often in the future. Cheers.
