    Female Figure and Face Structure Studies..Need another Eye

    Hey all, Watch your kiddos, some brief nudity involved

    This is my first time to post pictures on ConceptArt.org. I was lucky enough to go to Austin last summer for the Workshop, little hot, but damn!!! it was cool. Thoroughly enjoyed it! Here are a few studies from my sketchbook, Female Figures and some Heads. I need another Eye on some of the forms.

    Gracias,

    CHAWDOG

    Really nice work on the female bodies, all of those sketches are tight and well balanced.

    The male heads are getting there, but for all of them, and the two faces you've drawn on the females, it feels like your lacking just a little in upper head space. The craminums are a little small, but just barely.

    Overall the stuff looks pretty good. Some of the figures look like they're missing a few vertebra between the ribcage and pelvis, and you need to work on the anatomy of the neck and shoulders. You're not really understanding it, and it shows.

    Can you give me some more feedback about the neck and shoulder area. How do you approach an area like this?

    Thanks man.

    Roughly, honestly that's not a measurement I've ever thought of. The whole neck in your drawing is a bit long, though. The thing to remember is it is a round form with other forms wrapping around it. It fits inside the jaw at the top and inside the diamond shaped depression formed by the trapezius and collarbones at the bottom. The slope of the shoulders is created by the trapezius, which attaches to the back of the neck.
