Two Value Figure Study

Recently completed my first round on Proko’s Figure Drawing Course. Continuing to practice. This is a two value study I just completed. Image from the gesture lesson. Let me know what you think. Thanks!

Hey Vincent! Really nice drawing, the proportion and gesture are really solid. The even tones in the shadows are quite impressive as well, that's a hard thing to do! A couple things I'd say are to focus on the shadow shapes, and how to use them to help the form read. I've included some studies @Erik Gist did while I was taking classes with him. In his drawings you can see that he wraps the rib cage to emphasize the torso going forward in space. In your drawing, the upper back, the ribcage, and hips are all reading as the same form. If you were to push those fundamental bean shapes, I think it'd do a lot for your drawing. Good luck and great job!

Thanks! Yes the shadow shapes are what I’m working on. I love how the teachers at the watts school design their shadow shapes. Something I’m aspiring to. Following most of them on Instagram. One day I’ll get there. Really appreciate the feedback.

Hey Vincent, Nice job on your drawing, the pose and gesture looks good. I wish you had posted the reference, it would make it easier to critique your drawing. I did do a drawing to show you how I think the shadow pattern might look. I also adjusted some proportional problems and fixed that foot. This is all guess work, but my experience tells me what It probably should look like. I hope this is helpful, and keep on drawing :)

Hey Steve! Thanks for the review. Yes the foot! Lol 😆. I will be doing some anatomy lessons here shortly. Still deciding between that and the portrait course as my head needs some work as well. I started the first lesson the beginning of this year. Thanks for the feedback and overdraw. I did not post the image because it’s just apart of the lesson and not sure what the rules are since I don’t own the image. Next time I’ll do one from a photo pack I own. However as Proko normally says … if it looks wrong it’s wrong … even if you’ve measured correctly ☺️ So whether or not it matches the reference completely your response is valuable to me and I will use it. Thanks!

It's great! The only that pops to my attention is that erector spinae is too protruding. They should look softer. Keep the middle line, and try to erase the two lines above the PSIS (Venus's dimple).

Thanks @Vincentius Sesarius I think that is good advice. I’ll keep on practicing.
