    Please help me with these figure sketches?

    Hi,

    I made several figure sketches from a life drawing session.
    However, they are very undefined, and I can't find references that are the same poses.
    I want to improve the anatomy, pose, & details of these sketches. (add hands, feet, facial features) I'm at a standstill now.

    Any suggestions? Redlines/drawovers for correcting mistakes would be amaaazing.

    Hi there!

    I considered doing draw-overs, but sort or realized that I would simply draw a different person over the top - that would definitely not help you :-) The thing is that the anatomy on these figures is lovely, good definition for main shapes, solid outline. The problem is with proportions (maybe even partly due to camera angle). Here is what the main problem (I think) looks like [below]. Please don't look at it too closely :-)

    Also, I thought that maybe the person is falling a little to her right, and the abdomen/bib cage area may be too short, both both of these are largely irrelevant.


    Warmest wishes,

    Ana

    Thanks Ana

    There's a few things in the proportion that definitely need fixing, Thank you for the corrections! The camera angle was off a little (whoops), but I think despite that the actual drawing is still incorrect. I'll check out the rib cage length as well!

    I recommend uploading many more of these if you can. Sometimes it's tough to find out what kinds of issues your having by only a couple examples of your art. The difference between seeing if there is just one simple mistake, or if there are the same problems with all drawings, if you know what I mean.

    It looks like you're off to a good start though, proportions are tougher to tell when lifedrawing because it's hard for anyone else to know exactly what they were like from your point of view. But forms and anatomy are looking good. Keep up the good work!

    Studies are looking good, keep it up with those! I'd stick with pencil/charcoal for now and hold off on photoshop, you'll get more use out of doing multiple studies than tweaking old ones digitally. Don't shy away from measuring with your pencil to check proportions .

    I agree - would like to see more pencils. On a side note though, the face on that digital picture is gorgeously done already.
