There were originally 3 attempts, I didn’t include the first one but because I haven’t done the gesture course proper it suffered from no gesture syndrome. I went in the opposite direction and really tried to push the gesture while containing the anatomy, after receiving some criticism on Facebook the third attempt is basically re-pushing the anatomy and some reinterpretations from what I was seeing. I thought I was seeing the tibialis anterior despite what proko showcased but upon further attempts to decipher the image I decided to go with the consensus and remove it lol. Watching proko’s video around design and gesture as a means to both stylize and contain the anatomy through the most useful phrase ever, “is it anatomically possible?, mentions the boringness of symmetry juxtaposed to the tastefulness of asymmetry, I feel like asymmetrical design is still something I need to work on, does this seem boring?

Some from this lesson, definitely a few mistakes for each but it was a lot of fun and very informative!

Gonna work on mapping more, How does this look? I think the gastrocnemius might be too small.

Hello all first time posting work here, I’m working my way through the figure fundamentals course and I’ve just finished one half of the exercise on balanced poses lesson. I’ve also been focusing on mannequinization as well as balance. I’ve found mannequinization a real challenge and here is where I am at currently in my practice. I would really appreciate feed back as I want to make sure I’m making the right progress, my long term goal is to be able to drawing the figure from imagination confidently. look forward to hearing from you all.

This is done beautifully! Do you have underdrawing? or simply build on top of previous drawn shapes?

its basically layers stacked on each other ,some combining of under layers and lowering opacities etc.

Pretty easy but I tried to lay in shadow and couldn’t so 🤷🏻‍♂️ CC welcomed!

First non-trace, definitly need to learn how to properly shade, I can’t core shadow 😥

They look great! But I guess you got confused on his right leg (our left). I've drawn over the model to show you how I would build the legs in that particular angle and model. Leg is such a pain to draw, you know! Because they're intricate and they change a lot as the angle changes,

The TFL might be a bit long, seems like you’re grouping the TFL and IT band?

More studies of the leg, how are the origin and insertions? I don’t practice core shadows enough and it shows 😅

Proko only has an answer mapping for the first one which is how I realized the semi membranosis was small toward the medial side. Looking at the second one, I’m pretty sure I messed up on the sartorious aswell on the right side, CC welcomed!

Thought stan was incorrect so I did this tracing. But in the end I realisezed that he was correct. Maybe my tracing can be of help to anyone who get´s stuck. It´s messy, but hopefully readable enough

Hi @Mathew Patterson! Again really awesome drawing! I noticed some things that might help: - The lateral condyle is longer front to back, making it stick higher up in a position like this - These tibia crosscontours are better then in the previous drawings, but could be improved. To help you with getting the right tilt, you might want to try what Kim Jung Gi does; imagining the bone in a box or a cylinder. When it´s hard to visualize the box around the bone, it has helped me to imagine touching the box with my hands! I hope this helps :)

Hi @Mathew Patterson, I´m in awe! What an awesome drawing. I´m not at your level, so I´m not sure about this critique XD, but I noticed some things about the basic structure and anatomy. - In the right leg what I believe is the tibial tuberosity, you indicated as the corner of the shaft of the tibia - I´m not sure about the crosscontour for the body of the tibia, I can´t feel the simple triangular crosscontour which Stan demonstrates. When I made the judgment in my paintover with yellow lines I imagined touching the skeleton with my hands. That helps me a lot when figuring out the direction of a plane I hope this is of some help :)

Second pose for the legs and bucket, I know some of the angles might be off but I’m not sure if it works lol, all CC welcomed!

Finally moving on. I’ve actively avoided pelvises the moment I finished that part of the course and it’s been a couple years now and it’s finally at my front door lol so while I’m studying the leg bones I’m practicing the bucket and pelvis together 🤪 Do y’all think this is too complex or does it look readable; I noticed the fibula’s are a bit bowed, does that take too much away or too incorrect?

Hey Mathew, this drawing is really nice. I get what your saying about perspective, its a real challenge. One of the problems with focusing so much on anatomy, is that we tend to "normalize" the pose so that our anatomy looks "right". That's why I always work out the perspective first, then add my anatomy on top. That's why knowing how movement affects the anatomy is so important. Having shapes overlap shapes is the best way. You clearly draw very well, so I hope my suggestions are helpful, keep drawing :)
