Hi John! I just have one observation, since you emphasized gesture. The model's chest is pushing upwards, which makes it look like it's continuing the angle of the legs. The drawing has her chest and back dropping towards the ground. Perhaps this was a deliberate choice? Overall it looks pretty good! I like how you solved the visible shoulder and face.

Hey I've been trying to add foreshortening to my mannequins but it's just not working out the way I want it too I have been studying perspective for the past few months and I understand that the closer something is to you the larger it seems and that the further it is the smal.er it gets and I understand that forms overlap when foreshortened yet whenever I try it I can't get it right Should I just stop trying and go back once I learn more about other fundamentals or is there something I'm missing if there any videos sites or anything to help learning this easier I would greatly appreciate any and all help

Foreshortening is prolly the hardest, or one of the hardest skills you will master as an artist. Take courage, we all struggle with it. The process of going back and re-learning fundamentals after you learn new stuff is key in your progress. You may feel frustrated, just don't give up.

Hi @Josh mcgrath, Placing what you´re trying to draw in a box, or framed by a rectangle can be a huge help in getting proportions and foreshortening right. Kim Jung Gi has done this a lot https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ehz-lF3UwqQ (17:00) If you want to be meticulous Scott Robertson's book "How to Draw" shows you how to draw a 3D object with full control of proportion (p. 85). In short the process goes like this: Draw the object (let´s say a car) in profile. Place a grid of squares over it Note how the profile intersect the squares A grid of squares can be transfered into perspective accurately with the help of ellipses ( p.57) Find the same intersection points on the perspective grid Connect the dots The profile is now correctly transfered into perspective Project it outwards to give the car width MY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE WITH IMAGINATIVE DRAWING I don't think you have to be this technical every time you draw something, but it's good to know the techniques. They are great for solving problems that arise, but as I sketch I like to let my brain and intution do most of the job. In January, I attended Marshall Vandruff's perpesctive webinar. As my final project I drew a car flying over rooftops. I wanted to be really precise and used the approach above, having the square grid inform a lot of detail. It was labor intensive! As I showed my final project to Marshall he suggested me to be looser with my perspective, as I moved on. To eyeball more... Nowadays, when I start a sketch, I start by visualizing, imagining, that I´m in the world I want to draw. I imagine touching the things in it as I draw them. And if I´m thorough with touching, the perspective usually ends up good. It's amazing how much our brains know, and feel, about three dimensionality intutively, once you start digging. This visualization bussiness is something I'm thinking about a lot and I'm still experimenting with it, so take my words with a grain of salt. But I have a hunch that playing around with imagination is a key to become intuitive in perspective drawing; Have you ever tried thinking of your car and imagined looking at it from different angles (Imagining touching the object can help clarify the mental image) spinning it around in your head. If I'm not wrong Kim Jung Gi, AKA the master of imaginative drawing (XD), talks about this. I think it's great exercise. I hope this was helpful :)

Hi Josh. I hope you forgive me, but it is difficult to try to help out without any examples, so I took this screen grab from your album. If you're studying perspective, then you are getting a really good tool for mannequinization (I've found it really useful as well), but perhaps you're letting the idea of "correct proportion" get in the way of foreshortening. For example, when I drew this same pose, I found that the model's left arm and leg are very close to the camera, so they should be quite large in comparison with the right ones. With these types of references I find it easy to try and "fix" them without really meaning to, which might be what you're dealing with as well. I recommend you draw this pose again –or whichever one you found wasn't working out– and focus only on the perspective and relative size of the individual body parts, and see how it goes.

what I most like about your poses: they are dynamic and not stiff.

Hi all! I'll be grateful for critique. I attempt the poses before watching the examples, and try to figure out the mannequinazation for myself first. I think the limited knowledge of anatomy holds me back: in examples, Stan often draws muscles of the torso and I always feel a bit lost when he does that since witholut knowledge about muscles it's really hard to identify and simplify them. But maybe I'm missing something> Also I'd be grateful for assessment of my proportions - I know sometimes it's hard to see proportional flaws in your own drawings. And any advice is very welcome ;)

Overall, You are in the right track. I Especially like the 3rd drawing on the first row, and i think you nailed it in terms of the perception of 3d form and proper shapes you used. if you're having trouble with anatomy i suggest you revisit prokos video on landmarks and make notes and drawings on musculature. Then have these notes/drawings right beside you when you're making mannequinzation sketches. this method has really helped me a lot and i highly recommend it

Josh mcgrath
Tried the assignments and I feel I got them wrong I keep getting the angles of the forms wrong (mainly the pelvis ) and I don't know why I check the landmarks yet any time I look at prokos I'm always off is that normal will it affect how my drawings in the anatomy/shading stage much or am I overthinking? This has been bothering me for a while so any and all criticism or advice would be greatly appreciated

Hey Josh, it's quite difficult to see in your drawings. Maybe use the flash on your camera next time. It terms of landmarks don't be afraid being a little off as long as you identify the the protruding bone is the asis of the pelvis etc. You'll be fine. Everyone's drawing a different.

Hey! Great start, Marco! As this is your first post, so it is mine! I wanted it to try this. So, why don't I start with quick feedback! I love what Stan and you guys are doing here, so I'm really flattered to be part of it. So without any further to announce, let see if I can help you with that. You are doing great! Try to get more clarity on your volumes. Basically, what you need to use here are cylinders, boxes, and of course, some overlaps. So my advice for you would be, take your time to get those volumes clear. Are they coming towards us? Are they going away? What's in front and what's in the back? If you translate those 3D volumes to the 2D surfaces correctly, this mannequin you are doing will look more convincing. I hope this helps a little bit. :) <3

These are gesture drawings I did in the last 3 or 4 days from the AARON and CHANON model packs. I'm really enjoying the new models

Asked for help
I found it difficult to focus on gesture and structure, to find the balance between be loose and gestural and more accurate proportions with construction. as @Liandro Roger mentioned i focused on cleaner lines. What do you guys think? where I have to focus most? Are I'm prepared to continue with the course?

@James Mayr I just commented on your other post and I think this set of drawings looks even better. Forms look good, the proportions are fine and I don't find any issues with gesture. I think any other improvements regarding what you've studied so far should come naturally over time as you progress. I'd say you're just about right for this mannequinization lesson and you should certainly move on with the course if you feel you're ready.
