You know, I just found out that it wasn't your sketch that I critiqued. Nevertheless, it was specifically your correction I was referring to. But I seem to notice my own sketch just had a crit with no accompanying text. Was this some sort of retaliation? Did you find anything rude about my remark? Seriously, Zzaga. Just helping out, dude. I hope there is no problem. Please let me know your intention.

No, no, not at all!
I'did't meen anything by posting the picture! I just figgured you wanted ppl. to comment and help you along. I am so sorry if I offended you by posting it.
I'm kinda new here, so I'm sorry if I missunderstood the intentions of the thread.
(Oh, and sorry for the bad spelling, that's why I don't comment that much).
that's good thenOriginally Posted by patdzon
anyconstructive crit is welcome.
I am currently using Loomis and Tiner's books to get to grips with figure drawing without a model..
one self crit i'll have is to draw bigger ! i cant fit small details on those...
Cheers,Originally Posted by patdzon
are my proportions that much off ? i have been working on the 8 head model for some time now, so i thought i had it worked out..but maybe not ! Could you point where the proportion is going wrong ?

THe 2nd one looks like he has a big tummy. Use that same mannikin, and draw that figure over it. The errors should present itself to you.
Same with the last one. The head is placed a bit high, the buttocks should be lower, the thighs should be wider, and align her waistline.

That's looking good.
I think my problems comes with the hips on my females.. i cant "flesh" them up properly.
something to work on then..
Just always remember to keep em wide. and the width of the thighs are wider than the ribcage when seen from the front. For the male, it's opposite. For me women are fun to draw more than men hehe. Gotta love those curves.Originally Posted by stefd
Some walks..any crit welcome..
Remember that's a male mannikin so make the ribcage wider. Right now he looks like a weak, fragile dummy. You have to make the backside of the ribcage lean more to the back and connect to the back of the neck. And make those discs( pelvic discs) bigger.
How come there's soooooo many Loomis interpreters?
Thanks for your input patdzon, i am trying to take it all in...i think i have the hip worked out now. How's this ?
I dont particularly feel like a loomis interpreter. The body is the same way (more or less) whereever you look. Loomis just makes a very good description of it in his first chapters. Ok, the rest of the book is a little more about his own style, but we are not following that, are we ? and in fact, my manequins are more of a cross betweem Loomis's and Tiner's.
Maybe you are following a book where the body is described with the help of pastas shells ?
just a quick sketch
Look everyone, it's the legendary Gay Demon Of Love!
Pose based on intuition. No construction at all (unfortunatly).
Various studies (the girl was drawn with no ref)
hey pesmerga, good to see you studying.
I did some overpainting, hope you don´t mind.
I think your biggest flaws are seeing the big masses of the figure, in proportion and position. also your anatomy is really vague, study study study
what helped me tremendously was looking at KChens stuff, he is awsome. simplification and construction at it´s best. Good luck
Hey thanks a lot lol. I knew her head was too big but I was too lazy to correct it I always draw some dream boobs, it's a bad habbit of mine...
...I'm so lonely
thanks again for the torso thing. Yeah you're right. Kchen rocks!
