welcome to CA!
not bad. i think your line quality and control is pretty good, though i would suggest changing up your line value, make some of them lighter and some darker to suggest different things (weignt, edges, light and darkness, etc.). my main example is the 2nd picture, the woman's right breast looks kinda weird, and i think thats mainly due to the hard line you use to outline it with. the lower pictures are good, i like the flat shading you use in them; it fits the style. thats all at this point. keep hosting and posting dude; g'luck.
Hey, thanks for stopping by my sketchbook, wanted to return the favor. I like what I see so far, so keep it up. Seems like the hands are covered up on a majority of your pictures. I don't know if this is intentional or just happens to be the poses they are in, but I think it would be nice to see more detailed anatomy(hands and feet detailed out). I'll definitely be stopping back to see what you come up with.
Thanks, and i do value your opinion, the main reason for my doing bone studies is to understand the uman bodie from the ground up and to understand proportions, also i think its good practice for creating form but to each his own, i like your work, especially the latest post but i would say you need to work on creating more three-dimensional shapes. Some of your pieces do a good job but try and create it across the board. Other than that good job and keep posting
I used to have a deep and meaningfull quote here but that got a lil tiresome
please crtic my sketchbook
hey, not bad. i think scale should be worked on, such as the head to the rest of the bodies more noticable features (shoulders, breasts, arms, etc.) id say depth, if your going to continue using the environments for your subjects, should be worked on as well; aside from the first peice, the rest of them seemed far too flat, and the appeal of the figure was ultimately lost with the lines you used for the environment.
i recommend that you study more female's (perhaps feild work) and practice on the nude more than the clothed. there you can get a better grip on the body and its shapes than you will practicing with clothed subjects.
keep on. it looks as though your work is progressing qute rapidly. look forward to seeing more.
I really like what I see here. Your pencil strokes are excellent, especially the rendering of the dress in post #5. Some of your drawings look a bit flat, but it keeps getting better and better.
I´ll look forward to see more.
very nice ladies... especially the conte pieces.
I wish I could offer criticism, but as you have seen, females are not my specialty. it seems the life drawing lessons are paying off though.
btw, thanks for checking out my sketchbook
oooh, i especially like the 3rd one you added in your last post.
It seems like you are progressing well here.
i have a suggestion for the conte crayon works. it seems like the outlines in some of the illustrations / studies are a little bit on the thick side. if you go over an already thick line a second time or third time, it really gets a little too strong in relation to the form that it's trying to portray; it becomes visually distracting. You can probably see how on the kiss illustration it isn't as big of an issue because the forms are bigger in relation to the page. although it is very important to keep yr lines accurate, try to ensure that they stay very light and graceful until the time at the rendering point is appropriate to darken them–most of the time it won't be necessary and you could simply darken the background or surrounding area to indicate the delineation. doing so will make your studies much more accurate. make sense? hope this helps friend.
where abouts are you? i used to go to figure drawing on wednesday nights but then i moved to the figure drawing wasteland. good work. i like the steady progression. keep drawing... these studies are looking nice!
maybe try and use a really sharpened tool to draw these and then add the .
Hello, antquin, I like how your control proportions in your work. The most appealing in my opinion are the first figure from September the 3th, the Big Tease (it's very funny too ), all from September 9th and the last drawing. I especially like the first drawing from the first post because the lines in it thinner and they are different in width, lengths and in pressure applies, So it makes the drawing more interesting and lighter.
back to life drawing!
thanks, fatkid. i'm trying to be aware of my line weights. plus a lot of other things discussed on this board. you know how it goes.
i have an artsy name for this one:
