@Jesper Axelsson I saw your comment for another student and decided to take on your simple mannequin challenge. What do you think? I really enjoyed doing these because I didn’t have to worry about more complex forms like muscles. I think these look more accurate than the ones I did with muscles, since I don’t fully understand anatomy. I haven’t tried mannequinizing from imagination yet, but I will definitely try after I finish the back view examples.

Hi @faye zhang, awesome job! I don't have much to critique :) You seem to understand gesture and form well and be able to combine the two! - In image 4, you noted that you misplaced the box of the upper arm. Seeing whether a form is aiming toward or away from you is sometimes tricky. If I'm confused it helps me to imagine touching the forms. If I imagine laying my palm against the side of her arm for example I get the feeling that I would be seeing the back of my hand and that my fingers would be aiming away from me --> the form is coming toward me. Hope this helps :) Keep up the good work!

Hi all, I have been on this lesson for awhile and this drawing, I feel, is my best so far, but I do feel like something is off. I feel it is still to flat. May I get a critique and some advice on areas that I can improve. Thank you.

Hi, firstly - good job, you put some work into it, and it shows! I can tell you are thinking about foreshortening - which is very good. There is still room for improvement (which is a good thing!). That picture looks to me like you are trying to draw contours and then make it more manequinee by adding cross contur. Not sure if it is true, but it does look like it for at least two reasons. First - there is shitload of cross couture lines - soo many that it muddy the picture and make it hard to read the forms. Second - you tried to indicate muscles - on arms, on legs, on the belly, you added this mass connecting neck and arms (trapezius muscle?) that is unnecessary and again muddy the picture and hide those forms. Focus on capturing those simple shapes first - cylinders, boxes, and a bit this weird pelvis figure (no idea how to call it) and then play with muscles and other staff. TLDR: Limit the number of cross conture lines to MAX 2 on a mass. Go for shapes not contures. Good luck!

Wonderful! The proportion on all your drawings is great. One thing that I see you struggling with that I always struggle with is hands. Maybe use the mannequinization technique at a smaller scale and just focus on hands. I had to drawing about 100 hands before I felt like I knew them well. Love the Dr Strange drawing also. Great job! Keep going.

The issue im having with this lesson is that Stan's examples change so much in terms of how he approaches mannequinization... in one he'll do all tubes, and then he'll go almost to an anatomy precision level. I wish there was more of a standard on those.

Agree but on the bright side, he giving us more approach than one. I was thinking the same like you but at one point i just go on my own lol, using what i comfort with.

I hope it’s ok if I keep posting here. :D really helps me to keep up my study routine. Well, here are some more mannequins from the video in my own version as well as a Loki haha. Clothing is soooo haaaard. Does anyone know a good course to learn to draw better folds / clothing?

Not sure about courses, but MORPHO Anatomy for Artists series has a good book on "Clothing folds and creases", talking about tension folds and falling folds, the interaction with different body parts, the tension of different fabrics, seams, etc -- I imagine that to be a good place to start understanding the logic behind folds/clothing.

Sooo. „Things got a little bit out of hand“. I continued applying all the stuff I learned so far and training the mannequin thing with Marvel / Doctor Strange Fan Art :D Also, with the second one with the portrait I did a little experiment. I drew it while walking on a walking pad haha and it worked. I am quite happy xD Now drawing clothing and it’s folds seemed to be much harder than drawing the actual figure… this is really something to study on it’s own uh. Nevertheless, this also helped me to spot my week points in anatomy. Gesture / construction is working rather well already I’d say. What do you think?

Did some studies from the video and then I got carried away by inventing my own Mannequin and creating a fan art for doctor strange lol

i totally appreciate people posting what they consider imperfect work, the point is we are all working on it, not just showcasing nice work. I see you are also breaking down the analysis here by tracing; that is a smart intermediate step so you don't have to worry about proportions. Try to think of all the body parts as solid shapes, even the legs and feet.

I've started to do some models on my own and I hope to hear back on how I did. I Think I have a better grasp of the forms than I did a week ago but I also feel like my mannequins are missing some important step in the drawing process. Thank you for reading. :)

These are pretty good! If I was going to suggest anything, it would be 1. Try adding some cross contours, might give you more of a 3D look and 2. Your perspective seems off on one of the legs of the last pose. Just a couple of things that struck me when I looked at your drawings.

There's something I've really started to notice about the drawing process that I think would help you too. I've seen professionals DO this on their sketching videos whether or not it was the focus of the video... but have you noticed the frequent practice of artists putting like... 'Something' down whatsoever and then refining it after the fact? Like if they're doing the shoulder and hips, first you'll see this rough hourglass-y rhythmed shape and THEN they briefly distinguish and polish it into the intended shape. So you and I both, if you're looking for another step... Let's draw A VOLUME... as rough as can be with at least the major shape lines in place. And then give it a better cleaner mannequinization shape of whatever kind. The first stage will always be a rough gesture drawing. By rough I don't mean harsh lines, I just mean lacking major detail.

I struggled a bit with this pose at first, it's pretty messy but I'm rather pleased with the outcome now! Always grateful for feedback 😊

Looks Awesome! Love the addition of the swords. I think this pose came out pretty well, if I were to critique anything I'd say that the lines could feel a bit looser. Show a bit more how each section of the body locks into its corresponding parts.
