    proportions and stuff...

    Following the advice I got many times here on these forums I signed up for life drawing classes, and here are the results... Last time I posted here about my portrait practice I got a lot of helpful tips, so...

    The prof at the class told me that my lines look like drawn with an axe .-. Do they?
    Outside the class I use Loomis's figure drawing book (though I don't know if I'm doing it right xD).

    Well, that was a graceless way of putting it, but your lines are a bit choppy.

    Honestly, I wouldn't worry about that right now. Too many people don't understand the difference between trying to make a beautiful drawing and doing studies to better understand a subject. For now, concentrate on getting your anatomy and proportion down.
    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).

    Thanks for commenting, Stoat! ^^
    Hmm, it's probably because previously I was told that they're stiff, so I tried making them more "fluid"…
    Yet it came out choppy :< I'll try and tame it a bit xD
    I'm making my way thru some anatomy books and while all the muscles and stuff don't confuse me much, proportions do… And Loomis's way of drawing the figure in perspective ._. It's magic xD
    //am I the only one not seeing my stuff posted before the server migration thing?

    I think the proportions in this one are a lil bit better (correct me if not xD), I redrew so many parts so many times lol… xD I also tried to be less "choppy" with my lines, I don't know if you can see it. I got confused on the anatomy part, as the lady was a little plump and I didn't really know how can I use my (veeery slowly growing xD) knowledge on anatomy and stuff, when the muscles are well, pretty much concealed. It was easier with the skinny, muscular male model that posed for me before ._.

    Definitely getting better.

    Don't try too hard to find the anatomy under the chub. Draw the chub. I prefer skinny or muscular men, too, for the same reason, but you'll find most nude models have less than perfect bodies. Fat is interesting, too.

    It's all good. There's so much to learn. About your lines, don't worry. Concentrate on seeing and describing form and volume, and the lines will eventually sort themselves.
