The two profile skulls: the bottom of the cranium should be lower and rounder. the buggers have n great facial bones, but not much room for a brain...
The anterior view is good except the cheekbones are too thick, make the eye sockets larger and the bottom of the cheekbones highr, esp. on the left.
Also, in the second profile, the mandibles are not parallel in the ref., and the cheekbone is too thick. Try to look where features are in relation to other both in the ref and on the drawing, I find that really helps me in anatomy studies. Overall I think you've got the detail really well, but the overall shape and proportion needs looking at. Sit back and take in the overall shape in both the ref and your pic and compare. I find you see alot more inconsistancies with the ref next to the image on your 'puter screen than you can physically.
Holy cow...I'm finished, but will anyone read me? :eek:
*runs away to draw*
great studies! the speedpaint looks pretty good too :chug:
Hey man good sketchbook
I love your studies, those show the most improvement. The cast, the arm studies etc.
In your imaginative sketches, I see an area you may want to pay attention to is the waist area. A lot of them are lacking the waist and go straight to the pelvis. The waist is the most important part of the body I think, you move with it. First your waist then your feet .
Good stuff, just keep going!
endregan - that advice has helped me soooo much thank you!! It is really an obvious mistake i made for ages and did not see
waronmars - thanks very much for the feedback and support. your thread inspires me with your continuing continual improvement
yina - thank you I am definitely going to do more painting traditional and wacom
those rib studies are the best thing so far imo. keep it up your stuff from ref is a million times stronger than your others. keep drawing!
Long stuff...! Really inspiring some of them.
I haven't stopped just been busy working
(glad to be off the rocknroll)
plus my scanner is getting repaired
I have been drawing heaps trying to work from imagination, will be posting when my scanner is back.
Still in awe of the artists here and glad CA keeps me sane in the quieter moments at work.
This first one I did a while back. Oil 60 x 100
Did this on the weekend (Always liked this one), will probably do more on it
Great progress. Nice work. I especially love the arm that mogando25 posted again and this last batch of studies. I'd like to see more stuff from your imagination!
Pichuerca - Thanks for the kind comments.
adevejian - Thank you. I am working on my anatomy in order that my imaginative work packs more punch and gets closer to my life studies.
Icey - I am glad you like them. I actually got the rib reference from an anatomy thread here that had a link to another site. Can't remember where the thread was though. If you really need and can't find a decent ref, pm me and I will email it to you.
Here are my recent surface anatomy studies from Civardi.
