Really bad focus day. If I don't look at the reference and match it more closely then this whole exercise is a waste of time.
I will take a break tomorrow and try harder.

It amazes me that you can do so much in so little time, AND make it look really good and neat >.<

Yuu, if you ever look at the works of really good action animators they can do way better quality, a lot faster, and without reference.
I'm still stuck in garbage tier. Maybe by the time i reach 10,000 figures hopefully I'll be in noob tier. My goal is to make this exercise my "bread and butter" just draw out 50 figures of higher quality in less than an hour every day.
set 16 + hand and arms

Wow! Those studies are fantastic! If you don't mind me asking where do you look for reference?

Some are from deviantart, search stock pose photos or look for random cosplay photos
Others were from videos- Rhythmic gymnastics, stretching/yoga videos, TKD/tricking videos
I find the exercise videos most helpful in understanding the figure better.

I really love your hand studies.
Your figures have more structure now. I'm glad you've found your own way of studying anatomy.

I was gonna not post for a while since I felt like I had some good direction and just needed to grind it out, but the focus studies slipped... So here I am again for accountability reasons.
-For those who want stock photo references, first visit this guy's page
>>>> http://gutsandeffort.blogspot.com <<<<
and then scroll down one or two posts, and he has a ton of links. Also check out his deviantart because he is damn good and has worked on stuff like space dandy, black dynamite, motor city.

Disciple your poses are awesome as always About your hands I think there are some problems with the relationship between the measurements of the palm, thumb and fingers (e.g. sometimes all fingers seem to be equally long) besides that, I love the drawing of your room Keep it up!

Thanks for pointing that out Kuroro, it becomes really obvious when someone else highlights the mistakes. With that in mind I tried to take more care in what you mentioned.
Set #25 dedicated to having fun while drawing

#26/50 with focus on everything above waist
Since I'm over half way there now, going to take a quick break and reflect on what is working and what isn't before proceeding.

Whoa, you have an impressive anatomy gallery. Your perspective, and foreshortening are improving.
August 18th, 2014 #80
thnx mrs-thanatos, I still need to improve both of those things but hopefully things are more structured now.
Time to get back to work. I'll post some of my thoughts from the past few days.
Thing to work on:
1. I Keep drawing detached bodies because I'm placing the lower half of the torso too low
2. Limbs are a bit too wide
3. I underestimate the angles of limbs
4. I undersell foreshortening
-drawing things from life is a lot more helpful than just photographs. I will continue doing hand warm ups from life as I do not have access to life drawing sessions at the moment, but it is something I will pursue in the future.
-I must continue to do more focused studies to exercise patience.

Those faces look great About your poses in some of them the legs look weird, the way they bend just doesn't seem right (I get that a lot too ) sometimes even at the ankle and that makes the feet look wrong as well. Studying the skeletal structure of the lower body is probably going to help you with that The foreshortened ones may not be as correct as the others but they look a lot cooler
Also in the future could you upload the images in a higher resolution? I don't know what your screen resolution is, but on my iMac your poses look really tiny.
By the way what software did you use to make that animation on post #77? I just love it
August 18th, 2014 #82
The figure studies are looking great!
lots of 3dimensionality.
Keep going! you are improving a lot.
August 20th, 2014 #83
@Kuroro I will try to find some anatomical references and pay more attention to the legs. I'm going to stick with the waist up focus until the end of the week.
Also, sorry, should have clarified that it's not my animation. I just liked the choreography, even though its drawn so simply. It helps cheer me on to keep going. if you want to experiment with animation I don't have a software recommendation, anything will work.
@Voodoo_Mama Thanks I will keep going with these. I realized the problem that I had with finishing was because a lack of structural understanding so these are helping a lot.
the next one will be better.
