    Whats your favorite shape?

    not really a square or whatever, but more you're favorite area on a body, like the back or the neck, stomach line perhaps?
    Whats the part of the body you enjoy looking at or drawing?
    For me I love the back, it always looks so interesting in photos and paintings.

    Rectangular and green with a large denomination printed in the corners.

    Oh wait, you meant favorite shape in the body, not favorite shape in general... Whoops!

    The curves of the upper lip.

    The interaction/angles between the nose and the lips when a face is in profile.

    The way the lower back curves into the butt on a female.

    The outline of a cheek in 3/4 profile.


    I didn't think it was possible to be called an artist when you have nothing to say. It's like being a writer who publishes individual words as books and expects to be praised for it.

    When someone has a bit of a belly pouch and it curves past the opposite hipbone in a 3/4 view. Hard to describe but I love drawing it.
    Also, nice angles of the wrist. Beaaaaautiful.

    The outline of a girl's posterior from the side, particularly the sharp angle/curve from the lower back to the butt, when the back is arched (by puffing out the chest).

    The nape of the neck, where the hair thins to a stop. That, and that round shape at the back of the ear.

    Happily for me, they're right next to each other!

    I was once on the receiving end of a critique so savagely nasty, I marched straight out of class to the office and changed my major (sketchbook).

    The fold at the bottom of the butt (gluteal fold?). Can look very nice and says a lot about the stance/position of a figure.

    Thumbs up

    The shape of the quads when it's flexed. Very sexy shape.

    Triangles of course.
    I love the shapes of a woman's neck attaching to the clavicle, especially the shapes created when flexed and/or twisting/tilting.

    I love trying to capture shapes of muscles on the far side from the viewer. There's something about the foreshortening involved that creates so much dynamism in my head.

    Sharp corners of the face (especially with lighting from different angles) and neck muscles + collar bone.

    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    Triangles are awful, one of the most stable structures in AngryBirds.
    I don't have a particular part of the body that I prefer, what I love the most is when I studies a particular muscle (like my beloved Brachioradialis) and everytime I see one I'm like:
