Just a bit of figure practice. After jotting down some quick figure sketches, I decided to go ahead and detail most of the interesting ones. Thanks to everyone who attended the stream! It was fun to hang out, you guys make me feel so appreciated!
Just gonna say this: could you do a pose chart with modestly dressed gals? It'd be more realistic, and could be good practice with dynamic poses, trying to show what the body is doing without actually seeing the body. It is a challenge.
It really depends on the intention of the practice. This is "figure" practice, meaning I am interesting in studying the figure first. Pose and all that is secondary, and only used to study the human form from various angles. In that regard, nudity is actually preferred, and that's why artists for centuries have done figure practice based on nude reference. When I do clothing practice, it's usually with a specific character, so I can get used to the way their outfit moves, so I don't often do general studies on random outfits unless I am trying to design a new character. This isn't meant as a tutorial, I am simply sharing my own studies, since some people seem to enjoy them. However, if it's useful to anyone, awesome! If not, well, there's lots of other material out there to study.
The smack in the middle pose demonstrates exactly how poor your understanding of anatomy really is. Go back and relearn some basics, and you might be able to get back what you lost from what your originally learned.
RoninDude, thanks for posting your practice sketches like this. I'm gonna straight up copy some of these, try to reverse-engineer the skeletons, and hope some of your skillz rub off on me. I like the amount of nose you draw, too. Little enough to stay anime, but not so little that the viewer is wondering why she doesn't have a nose.
The way you offer critique demonstrates exactly how poor your understanding of communication really is. Go back and relearn some basics, and you might be able to get back what you lost from what your originally learned... If you ever really learned anything at all. ...But seriously, relax, friend. It's just a drawing.
nah, im sorry it's just very frustrating because it's obvious that plenty of people have tried to convince you that you need to change the way you approach art, and im pretty sure you haven't listened to any of them. im sorry i wasted my time.
