Soooo, here it is...
(the sketch, that is)
and here's the link to the original photo
I'd like your critique on the anatomy, please!
I've already noticed some things...
-Her right arm is not visible, yes I know... I got lazy and didn't do it
-The attempted shading on the torso is weird... does anybody know how I can better accomplish trying to show the lines of the ribcage and ab muscles and stuff?
-I think her boobs are off... I haven't drawn boobs before...
-Her waist is too small?
-She's kind of slightly leaning back... so subtle, I had difficulty drawing that.
Ehehehe, any comments and crits would be good, as well as letting me know what I'm doing well. Thank you very much!
The soul has reasons that reason cannot fathom.
Anyway I am by noooooo means good at drawing realistic people, but a few things I noticed with my untrained eyes: The head is too small, her left arm is too big, her breasts are too high (?). Anyway, wish I could help more but there are some great illustrators on this site who hopefully chime in.
LOl I still remember a friend at high school who planned to take an education in art who liked my upper arms and asked to use them as models for drawing practice.
That would in addition to anatomy studies give you lots of practice. If you want more of a study of the muscles ask a person that train a lot because that person will have more clearly defined muscles.
Me, I liked yout sketch for it simplicity in the lines and think you have chosen an interesting photo to use as reference. I think the hip/thigh area is slightly too wide compared to the reference photo. Nothing wrong with that in itself but that makes YOUR lady very pearshaped. Nothing wrong with that shape but a more similar width between shoulders and hips (timeglass) gives a better image balance. All in all I think it is a very good sketch for a person trying out a new topic. LOL wouldn't it be horrible if we got everything perfect the first time we tried it - we then would have nothing left to explore. The very best wishes on your journey exploring female anatomy. Come back and show us your next sketch. I'll be looking out for it
Trine (who can not even draw nice matchstick females)
It was a little bit hard to draw her coz she's at a very angle and leaning back very slightly... yea, so it kinda looks like the portions are distorted upright when she wasn't really upright anyway =\
@hamlet: I can only go so far eyeballing things, skeletal systems included. Would you recommend tracing, or will that do no good?
Window, I know you are working on anatomy, and getting the proportions realistic, but I find the irregularities of the proportions in your drawing make a very interesting and dynamic figure. I really like the drawing and I wouldn't change it!!
The best way to learn to draw figures with realistic proportions is to take a class. That way you have immediate feedback. You also gain a sense of the human form as three dimensional, rather than a flat shape.
Also, a good life drawing class will change the way you draw everything...for the better!
