    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

    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.

    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

    one suggestion

    hi antquin,

    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.

    I've got to be honest, I didn't find one woman in here sexy. I know it's partly in the eye of the beholder, but as commercial artists or aspiring commercial artists we have to be aware of what's universally regarded as appealing. This will sound harsh but I'm a guy who appreciates a good looking woman, so here are some gripes: Some of the women at the beginning look like men(first post in particular), and some of them look over 50(post #7 and 23). Trim down the waists a lot. I'm currently doing some "studies" of Rachael Leigh Cook, and I think every guy can agree: Rachael Leigh Cook = hot, Star Jones = not hot.

    I'll admit, I was pretty scared when I saw your name on my sketchbook, you could have easily criticized the hell outta me, but you didn't. I respect that. I see what you're saying. I actually kinda dig your loose style. I just brought up Rachael cuz she had a cameo on VH1's 80's 3d(made me take notice). I can appreciate a "bigger" woman too(you know what I mean), Lorna Morgan for instance. Keep up the good work.

    Great work, the expression on he-mans face is priceless! I also really like the conte drawing of two girls kissing.

    Your linework is solid! Are the models from life drawing? Is that Heman in one of the pics, the one sitting down with his sword? He sure rocked hard!!

    Thx for popping by my SB.

    the one in the red pencil of the two people kissing is superb. heads and shoulders above the rest. you've actually got a ryhythm to their form. as well as mary marvel is pretty good. what i would recommend is drawing more awkward or odd poses...you won't have symbols stored for these as well images of upside down or falling people could be very helpful.

    keep posting
