This was definitely a challenge, especially incorporating all the anatomy. I initially followed along with Stan, but now am starting to do my own from reference. Still a bit off with measurement and have a ton to learn about anatomy, but I'm excited to keep going!

hi, if anyone could give me hand here, I am struggling connecting the shoulder to the arms. And the part of the knee to the calves, I believe Stand says, we can choose what to do when doing the gesture part, i tried oval shape for upper part but for some reason I always ended up going with robobeans, I think thats why they look too square shape on the shoulder part, i can not draw an oval even if my life depended on it. So I always start gesture sort of robo-bean, but they look to square to me, if anyone can give me some advice, thank you

For the most part I'll do my own from the reference, then watch how Stan's process works. I think overall my proportions in the torso are wrong, amongst some anatomy issues.

I wrapped the last of the references, did a little cross referencing after I finished but overall really liked my progression. Still have issues with the chest for both genders. I will say, and maybe it comes across, that I was really feeling example 11, outside of maybe the leg that is bent backwards, and the ribcage simplicity, I feel like I mostly nailed it.

feels like gesture but with extra steps. I'm following along and i really appreciate how similar it is to gesture. seems like its just adding more plane changes and anatomy.

It definitely is a build on gesture and the robo bean, I've been thinking about it as, robo as the core area to start and building limbs/details out from there

Did the initial 4 references without following. The biggest things I'm noticing is that: a. I'm still having trouble understanding how the shoulders should be, for example looking at example 6, I'm now just seeing that because her arms are at pushed back, that would mean that her shoulders would align to the the direction of her bicep. b. Line quality speaks to a lack of confidence in drawing the shape, and that I'm likely using my lines to search out the shape, meaning I think I'll have to better plan before putting my drawing implementation down. c. The robo bean really helped me understand how things could come together. How angles would work at the middle, how arching or leaning could change the angle of the midsection,.

Here’s a few examples. I few weeks ago, I wouldn’t have thought I could do this. I’m a hobbyist practicing after work and after my kids go to bed. This course really propelled my barely existent skills. I look forward to seeing where this can take me a year or two from now.

This is really great. I feel like the feet on the right picture could have a bit more geometric structure. But the overall pose seems good to me as im not so far in the course like you atthe moment.

Here are some of my attempts at Mannequinization. Its kind hard tbh. Critique is appreciated. has anyone tips for not getting the lines too dark/thick too early? I have the feeling my drawings are hard to read.

I think they look great. You can use less pressure or maybe a different colour pencil then go over it.

@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.
