    I think they're looking nice One thing I'd suggest is to use the shading to create shape on the figures. In the first row of drawings, the middle one(girl in a towel) looks like it was just shaded all in one direction, maybe just to put down a tone. If you used the shading to define the form with darks pushing it back, lights bringing it forward, I think that would be a big help! Good luck!

    They're not bad, i suggest goin for the life drawing and studying up the loomis, bridgeman and other classic figure drawing books.

    for pencil technique...what helped me out was just drawing basic shapes...circles..hundreds, thousands of them, trying to draw a perfect circle without using a circle template

    and of course draw everyday...lots of drawing..lots.like riding a bicycle, a good part of pencil technique is just motor skill.

    Thanks for the nice replies. :waves:

    I had many bad drawing days lately ...

    Cashmere: step 4 will come eventually. I tried more than once already.
    Baaad drawing days I tellya.

    To be honest I moved parts of the scanned version around ... the proportions were horrible.



    I think this is the way to go at this stage:
    drawing stuff that doesn't take so long
    (until I can work faster and/or concentrate longer)

    A cheap (as in "not as good as") free Linux Photoshop clone that doesn't support tablets (at least the Windows version doesn't) ...
    but seems to be improving!

    Another SP
    This time I used a photo as reference ... and rushed things.


    DSG:
    in all of them the faces are based on photos.





    I know the quality sucks but these are not studies ... it is just me having fun.
