Hi, I'm a digital artist who's getting a studio arts degree in drawing. Maybe someday I can get a job with that skill.

Forgot to post these after working on them. I think these were a few weeks ago. I had made some minor adjustments after watching Stan's critique video. Took me until I pretty much finished this to begin to understand the shapes of the bones haha. For some reason, the many different angles they can make throw me off. Some draw-overs on these or some notes would be highly appreciated >>

There's an inherent irony in the way at about 32:10, Stan gets done telling someone that effective studying for short periods of time, are much more important than longer studies that don't focus on what's going on beneath it, then flipping to a single submitted high detail render.

I've really been enjoying learning about the back muscles. I've been going through and half studying this course, and half going back and studying figure drawing again and knowing where different muscles are and how the body is constructed makes it a lot easier to draw looser forms more dynamically. Pls give critique if available, doesn't matter if you've completed the course or not, still valuable.

I needed significantly more time to study Stan's instruction of shading from the figure drawing course to properly show the muscles and forms. Instead I tried to warm up to the idea of doing quick paint sketches since it gave me a few more values to work with. You can sort of progressively see me warm up to the concept. Am I missing something with them? Still feels like I'm missing an important idea with the Latissumus Dorsi and the way that it connects and flexes. Either way I'll keep reviewing. All critique is very much appreciated. @Jesper Axelsson if you have time to take a look at this that would be awesome, otherwise no worries.

Started with using the skelly app for poses and perspective, moved onto the assigned model images, then did some from imagination.

weird how the views on an extremely helpful tool like this only has a recorded 375 views at the time of writing while the 'how to draw' for this section has over 100k.

things definitely feel rough on the first pass. Will wait a couple of days for feedback before checking the critique and demos and doing a second pass.

Quick sketch robo-beans. I was looking to get these roughed in quickly, so a little sketchy…

Some really good robo-beans. Only thing I can add is that your shapes appear to be changing between drawings in the sense that it fluctuates between the chest having a larger top half, or having a larger bottom half. There are proportional differences between men and women but those changes tend to be with the female ribcage being a little tighter, but still larger towards the bottom, and the hips being proportionally larger. I don't remember if Stan touches on it during said lesson, but in the future with ribcages he notes that they get larger towards the lower 1/3rd as the ribcage expands. Obviously this is just nitpicking since your perspective and forms are pretty strong. You'll have a pretty easy time grasping how to draw the ribcage as well as the obliques in the future if this is any indication.

Doing these reminded me that I really struggle with the proportions of the body haha. Need to allocate more practice to that. I didn't want to do shading as I would've gotten distracted and after deciding on a form, would be hesitant towards erasing any of it to fix/modify. I hope the lines are satisfactory enough to see the forms for now. I can see that I still don't have a firm grasp on the forms of the abs so any advise/critique would be much appreciated. I'm going to go back and draw them again in a couple of days after reviewing the critique and demo videos.

these are awesome. You should take pride in the fact that you can lay down a unique composition and color flats in such a short time period. That being said, I would definitely recommend studying the form of the skull and structure of the face more. I know that probably isn't the most helpful thing to hear but it's what's most apparent in these. The one's that have specifically helped me the most are Stan's videos on the Loomis head, praise be Loomi, and Marc Brunet's various videos on faces that he uploads to Youtube. Thanks for sharing these!

Skelly had too much coffee before filming this

Will be going back in a day or two after reviewing the critique video and Stan's demos for drawing each image. Any critique given will be implemented when re-drawing. Thanks!

this was a really helpful exercise. First couple, I really had no idea how they connected. Thanks in advance for the critique!

Glad I decided to do all of them. Helped me break though some of the rigidness of the earlier drawings and help me see proportions better. It would be awesome if someone could draw over a couple of them and do some corrections. Thanks!

man I was way off with this one. Personally it looks like his rib cage is lifted more, allowing for more foreshortening. As well as the arch of his ribcage looks more spread like you described on more canonically masculine depictions.

Didn't realize that I used the same example as shown in the video. Kind of helpful though as I was able to double check against it. I guess the spine is still confusing me.

First three are from reference, last 3 are from imagination, though I will concede that I had to use the model to figure out exactly how the bucket would look for the last one, as I was breaking my brain trying to understand the perspective of the iliac crest haha. Wanted to do a sideview but I kept throwing them on the sides facing the viewer. Thanks for any critique in advance!

Hey Guys! How would you guys help students who have an obsessive compulsive mentality to draw where it becomes unhealthy (staying up late and less exercise) and students who have the Dunning-Kruger syndrome where they ignore your advice and argue? Thanks a lot.

I hope they pick this question as that would be really interesting to hear them speak on.
