Shading and Design Tips for Figure Drawing – Calf Critiques

January 9, 20202 Comments

I give my thoughts on a couple calf assignment drawings submitted to the Anatomy for Artists course. I’ll give you two tricks for shading and one for shape design of muscles vs tendons. The first is a way to simplify shading. An easy template to use as a starting point. My second tip has to do with looking at the shading subtleties that a couple pro artists use and incorporating that within your work. Huge shoutout and thanks to Loish and Max Grecke.

This is only a small snippet, but you can watch the entire critique in the premium anatomy course.

    Mr Prokopenko
    I don’t know how to reach you, so I am trying this way.
    I bought a set of Yoni photos today, 15$ US , paid for lt by Visa but didn’t receive the product. Could your staff check that please?
    Thank you.
    All the best to you and all those you love.
