Hey Everyone! here's some gestures I did to warm up and a 20 minute going as far as a could get in that time. Just looking to see if I could get some feedback on how I could get better. Have a good one!

Thats really good! I was wondering, how do you shade so softly?

What do you think could be better?

Is there any way to replicate how you shade traditionally but digitally, or just rendering digitally in general? Does that come down to the brushes or do the techniques change?

I'm really happy how this turned out. To be fair, I took this figure drawing class a while ago, but do these figure drawings to practice shading. Just a couple weeks ago, I was separating lights from darks, and now I know I'm improving. Just some extra notes: I turned the sharpness and warmth in post for the first picture, so it may be wonky. The last picture was when I initially finished, but noticed something was off. Feel free to give criticism! - Dwight

2022/7/5. Good morning everybody. Here’s my warming up exercise to start the practice day. I really have to fix this bad habit to stretch vertically the figure. Thanks for any comment or advice.

Yea I have the stretching habit too, especially with torsos. How long do you warm up before you start a drawing?

This drawing went into a totally different direction as I thought. Struggling to get proportions and movement right I did let go of precision and it turned out into a more wild version.

I like that a lot, is it digital or traditional?

What topics should I focus on that would improve this? I found the picture on that sketch daily site and I think I spent about an hour on this just to check my progress and see where I'm at.

I'm still learning portraits, coming from the figure fundamentals course. With these I'm trying to learn values and practice drawing portraits. Any feedback is welcome!

Somehow these measured studies get way more off than my usual ones. question: how do you go about finding the side points (farthest points left and right) better after establishing the height line with the center? This is where I still have the most trouble.

Good question, I don't have a good answer other than some guesses I could, make but your angles arnt far off, they all look very good!

After working on the skeletal section I've been trying to combine them all together. Two of these I drew on top of a reference and tried to imagine the structure. The other three I drew next to the reference and used the 3d models to help visualize the perspective. It's still a bit rough but I'd love to hear any feedback for how these could be better.

@Luigi Manese, @Liandro, and @Jesper Axelsson! Hey everyone back again after having some fun doing some more structure mannequins. so added a few extra sketches just because I thought they would be fun to show. The ones that I thought put everything together best were the ones from 6/1 and 6/2. The other two I just included for fun even though there might be issues. There are more that I was tempted to include as well but didn’t want to overwhelm with too many photos. So feel free to comment on the fun ones as well if you wish.

This is my progress about a week into mannequinization. Its slow going and Im working on trying to get less scratchy and visualizing 3d shapes from a reference, its a lot harder than they make it look! This is definitely the hardest part of the course so far. Any feedback for improvements would be appreciated!
