    Well, it may just be me, but it seems like you're hiding some of your struggles with anatomy by heavily draped clothing and grotesque manipulation. In order to consistantly manipulate the figure believably, you need to be good at drawing it in its normal form (the same rule applies to anime, etc.). I'd like to see you do some figures.

    good you remind me of that point, i should have an eye on this while drawing. but those shown are not the best instances for that point, since they dont intent to show a "perfect naked human body", but that grotesque stuff you "mentioned" . the first one was meant to be covered heavily with clothes, but thank you very much for your post, since i got something more precise to work on now. its just gruesome if you know somethings wrong, but not exactly what it is and how to change it.

    I probably could have chosen my words better. I didn't mean "groady to the max", but rather that it is just extreme in the use of characterizing the insides of the body on the outside of the body.

    well here is another sketch. its not quite that, what you said dogfood ( "figures"), but while testing around with body-armour stuff i quickly realized, that a good anatomic "feeling" is needed for drawing them correctly, so this can be seen as a "try for a figure". but please remember: its only a sketch
    => quickly done...and i only had a "damn, how could a cool knight's body-armor look like?" in my mind.
    (and its baaaad quality )
    i know the right hand is bigger than the left ....but please list all the mistakes i made and that you see in the pic. (and also what detail-stuff etc could be added to the armor.)
    blablabla heres the pic

    if you want to improve i guess some life studies would be appropriate.. try to draw basic things first (cubes, balls) and be more precise with your strokes..
    hope i could help

    When you draw figures, do you draw the figure first (unclothed) and then add the costume, armor, props etc.? This is essential to get things right. If you draw the figure naked first, then you can get the costume in the right place. Also you should watch your elipses. When you draw a figure, you should pick a horizon line (even if you don't plan to draw an environment), and then make all the elipses on your figure consistent with it. Check out this thread where I explained this before:

    thank you again!
    @inspector Lee
    hmm, while looking at this thread i dont really get this "ellipse&horizon-line" thing because the older pics eigam posted and which you referred to when talking about the ellipses etc have been removed! this way i cannot learn from it. (ill post it in eigam's thread again, maybe he can change this bakc to "normal").

    That's really strange. When I go to Eigam's thread (via the link above), all the images show up and look fine???

    Nope, just followed the link on my wife's laptop and the images are all there. The problem's definitely on your end. Maybe his hosting site is somehow being blocked by your ISP?
    In any case, if you can see my paintover, the one with all the red elipses, (which should appear, I still have it on my host server) and read my posts, it should be pretty clear.

    ...phuuuu i dont know, ill just try it until it works

    well, in order to improve my knowledge and understanding of human anatomy i thought of the "draw from life" which is so important for this . i took some photos and tried to get the people into simple forms and then see what to be done to make it look like more..."human" . well there are some more on paper...2 examples...i think i got the proportions quite ok in those.
