The first work turned in by Sam that didn't get critiqued was so beautiful 💞

Hi.  Really fun exercise and help me to understand so much better whats under each figure, I still need to try some reference from the back. Any critique is apreciated.

Here are some of my landmark attempts. I had a lot of trouble with scapulas on the second one in particular.

Nice try on these. I can definitely say the the left scapular is incorrect for for your first image. When the arm is up like that, the scapular is very flared out. see below (reference, proko)

I really had fun in Landmarks lesson, since I thought at first that I won't be able to do this because it now requires a real human body to use as a reference that has alot of bumps, curves etc that some of it I don't understand, which made me search alot of reference online (Pinterest) and some trial and errors before I could draw some of my assignments XD

Compiling all my landmarks from reference, they should be in the order in which I worked, I'm pretty happy with the last two, but I'm sure I'm not quite hitting the mark on some of the angles of the landmarks or their underlying forms, I find the areas around the hips particularly challenging. Also while not part of the goal of this lesson, my line quality is a little shoddy at the moment.

Here are my studies of today. Adding structure and landmarks ain't that easy. Critique would be appreciated.

Hey Ari, first of all thanks. I use the References from Proko. I think i got them part of a sale. And when I get bored/used to the models I go to quickposes.com

They look really cool. I don't know what to tell you to improve! (one question, where do you get the references from?)

Hi, this is my first comment on this course and I would appreciate a lot if I get some feedback. I did some gesture drawings too based on the previous lessons, but they turned to be very lightly and don't see well. Anyway, I do practice a lot if someone wonders.

Here are the assignments for landmarks. Last image is my own attempt from fresh references. Not sure if they're entirely correct, so I'd love some feedback.

Hi there, good work on these! In the last two poses, there are a few things I’d like to focus on. 1st pose (last page): the scapula should be rotating upwards rather than sitting in the neutral position. You can see the endpoints where the muscles dip into the skin outlining the trapezius muscle. It’s a little harder to see the bottom end of the scapula because of the teres major that’s covering it, but since the scapula is rotating upward, the bottom end of each scapula should end up closer to the outside of the body. 2nd pose (last page): the gesture in this one is a little stiff. You’ll want to make sure the gesture of the front of the body is arcing a little bit outward rather than collapsing into itself.

It seems people rarely get feedback here in the comments, but I'm still gonna post my results. Hope someone will point out more mistakes. I enjoyed this part of the course the most so far. Though I haven't yet taken the anatomy one, so I didn't indicate that many muscles, especially in the back. I also struggled with the shape of the gluteus in most of these figures, just couldn't really see that "donut". Thanks in advance for any critique, I really hope I get it.

These are great! One thing I did notice is the lower legs seem to all to be a bit too long compared to the photos.

@onegogol There is a red “asked for help” tag you can mark your post, which may get more feedback from other students/ community members. As for some feedback from an initial gut reaction, these look really really good. As i don’t know your process, i’m not clear if the process was freehand or like digital anatomical tracing exercises from Anatomy course. If it was using any digital tracing overlays, then maybe next challenge could be drawing invented poses freehand using the landmarks you’ve identified so well. Appears you are more than ready to try challenge of taking a few of these same models and draw inventing a variation like what happens with that same character next in a scene. If i had to give one area to focus on Anatomy landmark wise i notice the calf muscles - gastrocnemius and soleus don’t appear to be well defined, and the graceful gesture of the front of lower leg of the c curve landmark that dominates front of tibia feels like it could be more present… almost like lower leg is bit too oversimplified/ too skinny. Overall, Very good landmark studies! I hope that helps.

I apologize for the poor quality. #1-4 are drawing alongside Stan. #5 is my own study. I notice now some errors such as the left (viewer's right) breast being too high compared to the other. I also don't believe I captured the clavicles correctly. I only have one drawing because I have to go to sleep soon. I will do more landmark studies tomorrow to solidify my knowledge better. Anyways, is the patella on the left leg in position 1 or 2? Or some other position? Critiques are super appreciated. Thanks.

Landmark practice. Still trying to grasp the idea and figuring out all the parts of anatomy and body parts. I am not sure if I have identified the landmarks correctly… critiques are hugely welcomed.

I have enjoyed this lesson the most so far. I like the fluidity. I see movement in form and this lesson spoke to me in that way.

This lesson has been the most fun so far. Combining a little bit of anatomy with exaggerated poses really helps the drawing come to life. I find studying the model and then seeing them come to life on the page gives a really satisfactory feeling.
