Beautiful work. I like how the hair kind of looks like it's blowing away and the clarity of the core shadow running down his back.

Beautiful design; the kind of whimsical feeling it has with the different panels and the chimney makes it look like it came out of an old children's book. Have you seen the illustrations by swedish artist and author Sven Nordqvist? If not, you might find his work interesting :)

Hey everyone, I've been practicing my graphite shading / rendering some more, and I really wanted to try making a shaded graphite drawing of the pose attached :) All critique/feedback welcome.

Nice work; the different values for the different areas (clothes, hair, skin) read well even from a distance and I think the contrast looks nice. I would keep working on the subjects you mention in the description, but also on your technique. Right now some of the lines look a bit "hairy" (like on her shoulder for example). A great video here at Proko that talks some about lines is from FORCE series by Mike Mattesi. I would recommend looking at that and I am including a video here in the comment. The whole series is really good in my opinion. Also, It might also be good to look up warm-up exercises do before you start your project (if you don't already) :) Video by Mike Mattersi: https://www.proko.com/lesson/improving-line-quality-and-rhythm-force-series-part-1/discussions

2021/9/28. Hi all. An experiment more than a real mannequinization study. Very fast and rough but I wanted to play with contour lines without using any shading just to see the general effect. Thanks and have a good day.

Nice work Marco. Overall, I think you've managed to show a lot of structure and I particularly like the left leg (not picture-wise) because I can feel some movement in it. The left forearm (also not picture-wise) though, I think misses the same structural attention as the rest of the figure (even though it is a fast drawing), and I also think the same area would've also popped out a little more if you added some contour lines around it too :) Lastly, I think the line used to show a change of planes on his right pectoralis (not picture-wise) wants to point towards the sharp, lower edge of it. Hope this helps Marco! :)

I haven't read the books myself, but I like the illustrations themselves and the dramatic rock formations in them. Great job :)

A house-move later and I’m finally starting to get in place and can get working again in my new home. Even though it has been just a couple of weeks, I feel somewhat rusty. Maybe I’m overthinking it. Anyway, robo beans. Sometimes I think it’s difficult to discern what planes should be visible and not. When I’m not really feeling it and can’t grasp why, I’m often showing the wrong planes, and switch afterwards. I think I got it right at least.

These are great-looking drawings, Mathias and I keep finding your fluid strokes and gestures impressive. Personally I think drawing #1, 4 and 5 (drawing 1 in your reply) are the strongest in proportions, structure and angle of the 2 regions. My critique would be for drawing #2. Drawing 2: I personally think it looks great when you bend the boxes a little for the sake of movement, but, in this drawing I feel like you may have bent it a bit too much and missed the angle/placement of the ribcage in the pose. Also, remember that the shoulders can move a bit independantly from the ribcage. Hope this helps :)

Here's a pair of drawings for the shading assignment. I worked mostly with very light midtones and darker cast / occlusion shadows in places along with a lot of dark in the hair. The second one was a bit looser than the first and the expressions on both came out a little different from the model l but I really liked them :) On the first drawing, I added in some extra shadow / lost edges digitally around the genitalia to try and make it a bit more modest. I would be great it if a moderator or instructor would give me some pointers for how to treat complete nudity like this when posting here at Proko for future reference :) All criticism welcome.

2021/9/18. Hi all. Here' s my weekly mannequinization exercise. I'm not really sure I completed the task properly. I don't feel like I drew a "real" mannequin. It's a kind of hybrid between, mannequin, landmarks drawing, gesture, measuring exercise and shading. In some way the lateral plan of the right leg (as well as other area like the breast) looks too flat to me maybe because I used straight line for shading. Next time I'll try curves to see the difference in the final result. The left breast profile and the overlapping deltoids are confused a little bit. Thanks for any advice or suggestion. Have a good week end.

Nice work Marco! I think your overall linework is getting cleaner, If that's the direction you want to keep moving in. As for the shading strokes going in only one direction, I personally think it comes down a bit to what expression you're after, even though variating the angle more would create more contrast. I would personally prefer to do this by either crosshatching, changing the direction overall, or following the form of the figure. Following the form of the figure with more curved strokes can (in my personal opinion) create more movement and also help show the forms more. The biggest thing I notice right away with the drawing is that the cross contour of the chest (right below her breasts) conflicts with indication of her thoracic arch. To me, the cross contour feels more dominant, making the ribcage look off. The angle of the ribcage itself also feels a bit off, even without the cross contour. I'm including a quick drawing with red lines to show my point. I hope this helps, and keep up the good work! :)

Here are a few more tv doodles- this time it's Vincent Price from the movie "The House on Haunted Hill." I tried to slow myself down and make more careful measurement observations, but they turned out a bit stiff as a result. The doodle on the left was an attempt at a caricature of Mr. Price. Hmmm- more study is needed :-)

I like these and and I agree that they get a very classical feeling from how you use clear lines show value changes.

A little personal work (finally I had a couple of days off!), the portrait of the character I use in the test team of the role-playing game Warcall. I tried to apply the directions from the Painting and Skintones Bundle (I actually like the result much better than those obtained in the past using other methods). Obviously I need to practice more because it doesn't come naturally to me yet but I really think that from now on I will always apply this method, which allows to obtain a result much more similar to what I was used to with traditional media.

I like this guy; he feels pretty adventurous and confident but also somewhat casual. My favorite part of it would be the flowing forms you've created in his costume and the feeling of weight it has.

Nice work Marco. You've made the triceps look very clear, and for the purpose of showing that area, it's good study. My feedback is more of a personal opinion and has more to do with the drawing itself, rather than the anatomy, so keep that in mind: I feel that the shift from the rendered muscles to the non-rendered area on the right side of the arm (picture wise) is a little sudden. This has nothing to do with the study, but I think making the transition from rendered to non-rendered could've been a bit more gradual. It's a bit better on the left side of the drawing, all the way down. I hope you find that useful :)

Nice, very creative! I also really like the lower chest area - looks kind of like a maw and an organic jet engine at the same time.

Nice work with these. The anatomy looks good and the presentation of the work is beautiful, especially in the first picture. Also, the overall linework looks clean and confident, so good job :) I have a little bit of critique but it is only my personal opinion: 1. The first illustration looks good and is presented very nicely. From an information standpoint, it's also great how you've used color and contour to isolate the various muscle groups from one another, however; as you are also pointing out the individual muscles, I feel like those could've been slightly more separated too with a bit more contrast, so they pop out as individuals. 2. The shading in the color version of 5.1 feels a bit intense and kind of pulls focus away from the muscle information itself for me a little. Perhaps breaking it up a little with some reflected light or making it very slightly lighter would help - more like how it is on the 2nd drawing in 1.1, which I think works better. Hope this helps, and really good work :)

Nice work Macro! :) I think you're doing well structurally in your work, and, while you should never stop working to improve that part of the process, I think you should also look towards light/color theory for these colored portraits. Overall I agree with the feedback you've gotten so far in this post. One thing I notice (personally) is that your color choices (especially for her face and hair) for both light and shadow feel a bit like you're mostly changing the shade and tint of the local colors to show light and shadow (that is, using your local color and mixing in white to make it lighter or black to make it darker). In reality though color moves a lot more than that due to the intensity and color of the lightsource itself along the color of the surrounding objects the light has hit and bounced off of before hitting your subject. Another thing that will influence the color of your subject are the materials of your subject matter and how light interracts with those materials. For skin, one thing you could look up is subsurface scattering and the material properties of skin and the tissue underneath if you haven't already, I am linking some helpful videos by Marco Bucci, and there's also a course on color here on Proko by the same artist. I haven't joined that course yet myself, so I can't say what's in it, but I know Marco Bucci is excellent with color and the videos in his youtube channel are really good. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gwLQ0cDb4cE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7fLV5ezO64w https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYtGh2xTAlg https://www.proko.com/course/the-color-survival-guide/overview Hope this helps!

Here's my submission for the proportions assignment :) I started with the Richter system I intend to study the other ones too, but I don't know if I'll make that into a submission or not. I hope I'm not breaking any rules with the nipple indications; I've been a little confused about it in the past and went without them, but, for this assignment that seemed a little counterproductive. Any and all criticism is appreciated.

Nice work on these robo beans. The bottom one in the 2nd picture is the strongest one in my opinion and it also has the best stroke width variation, and it looks overall very fluid :) I have a few things I'd like to critique, and I have included some examples where I added red lines for reference. It's up to you whether you think it's helpful or not :) 1. The first bean in the second picture looks nice, but the way you've connected the pelvis and the ribcage made it a bit confusing, and when I first looked at it, I thought the the larger plane of your ribcage was meant to be the side, not the back. I've included an example of which lines I'm talking about. Also, I think we might be seeing a little too much of the top plane of the pelvis. 2. The 2nd drawing in the first picture, I can tell you've tried to exaggerate the twisting, which is good in my opinion, but I think it might be exaggerated a bit too much. In the original pose I think we're actually seeing the side surface of the ribcage on the opposite side of where you've drawn it and I think that might be a pretty long way to twist to the point where we see as much of the other side as you've drawn it. Either way, I am just pointing that out and adding a example. 3. In the first drawing of the 3rd picture, you have tilted the ribcage down a lot and straightened the foreshortening, and, I also feel like you might've distorted the box of the ribcage a little to much in it. This may be an intentional exaggeration, and I think that's alright, but either way, I feel that part of the exercise is also working with landmarks to find the placement of the pelvis and ribcage underneath everything, even though making them a bit bendy and lively is nice. Also remember that the arms and shoulders can move a bit independantly from the ribcage. Either way, It is a difficult pose to figure out, and I'm not completely sure I did it correctly either, but hopefully the example is clear enough to be helpful. Hopefully this feedback helps :)

Heres some of my latest figure drawing practice, I was on a trip so most of these were done on the iPad, its pretty cool, but can be finicky at times. had a great time though. I joined a small daily figure drawing group as well so that's been awesome 👌
