Figure Practice June 6, 2014 by RoninDude Figure Practice June 6, 2014 by RoninDude
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. :)

Thanks for your comment!

:) It is helpful. I'm not quite a beginner, but not the greatest either. Truth be told, I just don't like necked (or half so) people......

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.

Away with you, troll! You have no power here!

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. :P

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.

i don't understand your argument, are you saying your art isn't shit and don't need to relearn the basics?

Ah, I see. Your not trying to be helpful, your just trying to be rude. That's fine, if it makes you feel better. I hope you have a better day.

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.

So far, it seems that "plenty" of people are pretty happy with my work.
I am not interested in allowing every stranger with something to say to dictate how I should pursue my passion. If a random stranger tried to convince you to change a part of your life, would you listen? I doubt it. At least, I hope you wouldn't take them seriously. You've got to be confident and fallow your own path. Looking at your profile, I would assume you understand what I mean about the importance of being confident in your chosen path. Please afford me the same respect in my artistic journey. It is, after all, my decision.

And tons of people are okay with Tom Preston's, or Humon's, or tons of other stagnant mediocre artists overcome by mild internet popularity. Just because people like your stuff doesn't mean you can't be better, you've been doing the same shit for almost a decade! Try a different approach it'll be good for you.

And yeah, you should listen to random strangers, since it's random strangers buying your art! And no i don't think people should always be confident in their chosen path, i think people should be wary, and careful about what they choose, as those choices may come back to bite them!

Your saying your view on what I should do is more valuable than all the rest of the people who back me, including my own. That's pretentious.
The people who buy my art are the ones who enjoy it. That's not you, so what you say doesn't make sense.
It's ok if there are people out there with different interests. Try to appreciate the diversity instead of putting them down for being different.

Of course not! I never want to have that wall that tends to appear between creators and appreciators. That's why I like to do my live streams and reply when I can. I'm just another weirdo that can draw, and I always think its odd when popular artists or musicians suddenly reach a point where they are "unreachable" to the people who show them support. I never want to be like that.

Yeah, I doubt you will reach that mentality. Some of my favorite artists from a while back went through that phase. Many changed, some did not.

Keep up the good work and good things will happen.

Wow! Just... wow. I think I died and went to pin-up heaven. It was great to see some of these take shape. Next time I stop by I need to do two things. First, allow more time to hang out. Second, not show up when I'm hungry. All that talking about crab and sushi was killing me! :)

Yup! Or untying. She probably got the tie snagged as she was climbing and created the problem. XD
