Nice. It helps me with animals to think about the ribcage, pelvis, hips and knees in a similar manner to a human figure. I under-draw the "beans" the same way. Keep it up!

These are very well done! Kubert is an inspiration to me as well. Great idea.

Did this portrait yesterday, I think it has a decent likeness, there's something wrong with the expression and I can't quite place it, I think the forehead is taller, how can I improve this, or should I leave it alone?

Nice question! I wouldn't mind hearing the answer myself...but I suspect it's quite variable, depending on the nose, brow, and gender.

2021/11/27. Good morning everybody. Here's my second attempt of this section assignment. This time I tried to soften the core shadows and make the planes changes more gradual. Sine I couldn't design the halftones of the carpal area correctly I imitate Stan's solution. The only thing I’m not really convinced about, is the area between the first dorsal interosseous and thumb below. It looks like the muscle shape doesn't pop out correctly. I'd like to hear @Jesper Axelsson's opinion. What do you think Sir? Of course it's not a masterpiece but I think that compared to the first attempt this one represents a dramatic improvement. Thanks to anyone would contribute with suggestions or advices. Have a good day.

Perhaps if you seprarted the values between your half-tones and shadows a bit more, the shapes would emerge? Also, the webbing near the thumb and first finger strikes me as off. Don't mean to sound too negative. It is good progress.

hi, I'm just comfortable drawing individual boxes, how do I go from there to box men? did I jump too soon into this?

I'm no expert, but I recommend just jumping in with both feet. When I struggle with something or hit a wall, that how I know what to research. There's nothing like having a application to bring things into focus. Cheers.

Inspired by this lesson: a Loomis method invented faux-portrait (i.e. no reference). Bauman makes me want to be a better artist!

Perhaps the neck it too thin? Otherwise, very nice!

Here's a figure drawing loosely based on a reference. I know it's a rather liberal interpretation of the original. I was mostly focusing on trying to (flat) shade the shadowed regions and get some value separation...but then I got a little carried a way and put the poor gal under water etc. I'm a just a casual pulp art hack, but I would still sincerely appreciate any tips or critiques. Thank you.

I think your ridge muscle should connect higher and more to the front, compared to the tricep. Hope that helps.

Look what happened when I made sure my "lightest darks are darker than my darkest lights". :) Yeah Proko!

Rich, I am just learning this stuff as well...so take this with a grain of salt. Parallel lines should meet on the horizon, so if you project the side of the boat the meet inside the red circle. You either need to move your horizon up, or adjust you boat-sides. Also, recall the horizon is at your eye-level so it would affect the boat and it's crew, i.e. you'd be "looking down" more. Furthermore, a basic composition "rule of thirds" suggests you place the interesting elements at the red-line intersections. That would imply you should move you lead boat into the upper-left red square, and maybe adjust the chaser ship a little, but it's probably fine. Lastly, I'm not sure were the highlight of the fella with the rifle is coming from. Your light seems to be to up and to the right. Hope that helps. (Nice clouds and water!)

2021/9/21. Hello everyone. This is a personal interpretation of Elsa from the Disney movie, FROZEN. Before presenting the final version to my illustration course teacher, I would like to hear some of your opinions and possibly some advice on how to improve it. In particular I would like to increase the sense of depth of the background and three-dimensionality of Elsa (Elsa has a very fair complexion and I would not want to exaggerate with the shadows since the light of the ballroom is very strong and diffused). Also I would like to add a halo of brightness to the chandeliers. If you have any useful ideas please post them below. I also add some of the reference pics I used. Thanks for your valuable contribution.

Consider placing her in a darker background to make the figure stand out.

More practice. I tried to push and exaggerate the shadows, which was very challenging but I'm happy that I tried :) I also slightly exaggerated the facial expression. Critique and feedback appreciated.

Powerful and wonderfully executed! I love it --- in particular how you let the back leg ans arm melt into the background. I heard in a recent video lesson that allowing elements of your illustration to remain abstract heightens the emotional impact of the piece. The sharp details (and contrast from her dark hair) draws you attention to the wonderfully expressive face. Your best yet, in my opinion.

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.

I love how you got even more definition and contrast in the sketch for the torso than the photo---a perfect example of how art can be even more dramatic than life. Again, you are at the top of the class, but if I were to say anything is "weak" in the drawing it is the lower legs. I don't feel the power in them the way I do the torso. They are accurate to the photo (for the most part), but I think it would be ok if you pushed them like you did the torso. Wonderful job. I am envious of your patience, attention to detail, and skill with charcoal.

A figure study. Please do share critiques. I am trying to learn how to make values without smudging.
