I thought id make a thead again.

Obviously hes not done yet but as i was lining him (scaned from original drawn trad but lining in Mangastudios. Allso its crap quality cuz its a screeny. allso cut off his toes a bit by accident) i noticed that the legs just aent going to come out as believable as id like them to.
So perspective or foreshortening problems i guess would sum it up?
What to do folks? Do i drop the legs down so the feet come closer to the viewer?
Do i shorten the boots and drop the knees down so the hands are right on them?
Is the head to big (i have issues in that area im told >>)?
How bad are the proportions?
Any other problems i should be working on?

Her hat would look better if you added more volume. Right now it looks so flat and deflated that it subtracts from the overall look of the image rather than add to it.

Her shoulders - one shoulder looks thicker than the other. If you add or thin out one of the shoulders' width, I think it'll be much better. The perspective of the hands are off; the part that is coming from the elbow and forward to the hands to be exact. At the angle that you have the rest of the body in, you shouldn't be able to see the part of her arm that is from the elbow to the wrist - or at least very little of it.

Last, I think her butt should be curvier. Not where it meets the floor but the part just above it to the side.

*bows* ty rio sama (to weebo?).

I hope this updated version is better.
Things i did: brought the hands up and layered them a bit more so to foreshortin and make them seem more natural (hopefully). Lowerd the eyes a bit because his eyes seemed a bit to high to me (i can never tell >>). Finished lining it all. Filled out the hat a bit more (plans to make that hat IRL have been made).

Shes naked for now (not forever tho @@!) because shes only a sketch but i wana know if its looking ok so far?
C&C welcome.

03-16-2011, 07:29 PM
It looks fine but you might want the shin to be the same length of the thigh if you're foreshortening.

03-16-2011, 07:41 PM
ooh good tip thank you.

03-17-2011, 01:45 AM
to me the face looks like its in the wrong place, not sure if it should be higher or lower.... hmmm...

03-23-2011, 05:36 PM

Hows this one so far?
allso hats in the spoiler.

I just got nose blood all over my keyboard. I do hope you're happy :C

Your work looks fantastic <3 <3 <3

04-14-2011, 08:35 PM

Ok so its still not a done deal with this one because i think she needs more clothes but thats just me. Please C&C anything you see wrong or that can be improved upon.

Oh yeah dont mind the scroll bar and the blue bar at the bottom that was . . . that was an accident that i was to lazy to fix . . . yeah.

Ah, you do the same thing with feet as I do. Toes are difficult objects! I'd recommend you look at the knees. They don't taper into a sharp point like that transitioning between the calves and the thighs. Knees are pretty round (http://health.usnews.com/usnews/images/health/photos/070703knee.jpg).

That is some rad hair, by the way. Like DBZ, but with less men on steroids and more women in swimsuits.

04-15-2011, 10:29 AM
Very nice job on the last one. I like the super clean lines and the simple tone scheme. My main issue is with her bikini top. The way the cloth wrinkles makes her boobs look a little oddly shaped. My suggestion would be to see how it looks with the underside of the bikini wrinkle free.

05-02-2011, 07:01 PM
Awesome thank you both *bows* and i shall keep the knees thing in mind next time.

This is suposed to be real quick cuz im kinda late for work.


I drew Adele! Realism is what im missin. i just had to draw her she so perty :D! C&C welcome.

06-20-2011, 03:55 PM
Practice. I have nothing to up the contrast so look at it from a lower angle on your monitor 8D

06-20-2011, 04:09 PM
Lol, Psy. x} Download GIMP?

This is really neat. Did you just randomly decide to try it or was it some kind of exercise from a book or something?

06-20-2011, 04:35 PM
I FINALLY decided to take a looky at some tuts and came across andrew loomis-Drawing the face and hands and i was like ":I WANA BE ABLE TO DO THAT!!!" so i did. <3

Edit: ive tried using gimp before and it was all wonky to me. did not like. but i may just have to OTZ. ty tay.

06-21-2011, 03:40 PM
If you're just going to use birghtness/contrast of levels, then maybe you can try this out: Fotograpfix (http://lmadhavan.com/software/fotografix/). It's a free photo editing software.

07-18-2011, 03:15 PM
Ty rio i will have to check it out.


Ink (diluted ink) and Conte crayon painting like thing. the paper i used is for pencil drawing so it warped quite a bit (oops) and i had an accident with her arm/bra strap area. I guess the way i did it its like water colour? So should i be using water colour paper? i tried card stock that i had and that just bubbled and my lines were all vainy. reference was used and im fairly sure its Heidi Klum.

07-19-2011, 09:56 PM
Ooooh, I really like that last one! I don't know a lot about paper though.. it looks alright to me besides the tear.

07-20-2011, 10:40 PM
hey Psy! :}
mhhmm, nice drawing *u* , illustration board is nice and sturdy! , and I doubt you'll have any warping issues especially since you're using dry media. I don't think you'll have tearing problems either o:
afjkdlj Iwannaseemore:c

08-01-2011, 10:17 PM
Ty both!
@E: Ty I got some water colour paper but i havent tried it yet.


ok this is not done but i want any mistakes pointed out before i attempt (or ruin >>) to paint it with ink. Anything you see helps OTZ.

08-02-2011, 11:48 AM
I don't see anything wrong with the pic. I guess the mouth could be moved JUST AN EENSY TINY SMIDGE to the left, but even then, it looks completely fine where it is. Also her left (our right) arm looks a bit bent outward, but I think that's only an illusion from the baggy sleeves. Overall I think you could ink it right now and it'll look awesome!

08-02-2011, 05:14 PM
Loving the design, I agree with the mouth moving. It seems like she has a major overbite and they're just being pushed outwards. Everything else looks great.

08-02-2011, 05:50 PM
Ty both. I took your advice and moved it back a bit (hoping it was far enough>>)
allso fixed the arm (i think @@)

So here she is now
Scanning it washed the colour out a bit. now that i look at it i should have darkened in the mouth.

09-08-2011, 09:59 AM
Damn Adele looks GOOD!

12-18-2011, 05:11 PM
Surprised this didnt get deleted i was gone so long.

I wanted to see if the anatomy is ok so its here to be critiqued. Done traditional cuz my scanner died months ago and im a cheap ass who wont (or cant) pony up the cash to get a new one.

allso my crafts in the spoiler
Links are the same pics but you can zoom in and see better details that way.

12-18-2011, 06:15 PM
1.) her breasts sit too low on her chest. you can fix this easily be just making them really huge and hiking the cleavage up higher.
2.) In perspective, her thighs should not be entirely visible off the sides of her body like that. They are too far apart, as far as how wide her hips are. Considering you can see the curve of the ass on the left thigh, you'd have to imagine her donk would be incredibly wide to accommodate that spread.

12-18-2011, 07:02 PM
I really dig that black and white bag, that's just awesome.

12-20-2011, 05:53 PM
What Cype said and it seems the hands are a bit too small. Also the right (her left) calf looks much fatter then the left one. Still i quite like it :D

01-28-2012, 02:38 PM
Oh thank you three. I cant really fix anything because no tablet and no mouse to draw with digitally and i inked most of that picture so it would be easier to see. When i get a new tablet im going to get crackin and fix it.

Put it in a spoiler because its super elongated (i was in the mood to do that). Anatomy proportions pose practice thing i guess you could say. Downloaded the pose maniac app and been doing these everynow and then but these are from like the last 2 days.problems you see?

01-28-2012, 03:32 PM
These are actually really great. The proportions are correct, and they don't look stiff. I think the only thing I'd say is about the last one, the one all the way on the right. His hips look a little thin, but really, other than that, these are great. I gotta start doing this. @_@

05-11-2012, 06:14 PM
Aww shucks thank you Jai.

Ive been drawing off and on in my sketchbook so heres the first four pages (as in ive only drawn on the first four pages >>;; )


All drawings are referenced using the free "RandomPose" app which I do believe is the Pose maniac.com official app. also one of the chicks in the second image got her foot cut of in the scanning process and I am far to lazy to fix it but its ok because she is sitting down.
I was wondering if the images from posemaniac are reliable and proportioned right? They LOOK right to my eyes but I can be and usually am wrong so hmm.
Ok questions comments crits all welcome.

05-11-2012, 10:55 PM
Lookin good man.. great practice. Some of your males seem to have elongated bodies though.. not all of them.. so keep an eye our for that.. it's just proportions.. but a slight alignment when you're building you're gesture :)

05-20-2012, 09:58 PM
Ok cool thank you I was wondering about that but i am bad at seeing things like that.

Traditional drawing id like some crit on. Reff was used and i plan to do some water+ink painting/inking to it (im sure its going to warp it and be horrid but still what i wana do).

anything look proportionally off? i dont own that image btw and idk who she even is (i thought jennifer Aniston but idk). i dont want to move forward until im sure ive got everything in place.

05-21-2012, 05:18 AM
i'd say this is about bang-on, but her chest and her left (our right) arm appear to be slightly thicker in proportion to everythig else then in the original drawing. other then that, it's great!

05-22-2012, 12:45 PM
Thank you for taking a look. I fixed her arm, i think D8, and I also tried to do her hands so they were more exact but i could have failed. I scanned the changes i made but that was after i had ereased all the dark areas so i figured ah screw it lets just paint.

So here she is all done up. Painted with diluted ink and highlighted and lowlighted with white and black conte crayon respectively. Also picture taken with iPhone camera because im sure im going to mess up the conte if i scan it with my portable scanner (may try anyhow idk).


anything anyone see wrong that i should watch out for next time? comments and critiques allways welcome.

05-22-2012, 02:45 PM
Hmm, that's looking good. The ink/conte crayon combo gives it a really nice texture. My only suggestions at this stage would be to darken up her eyelids a little (she has a fair bit of eye makeup in the photo) and plump up her bottom lip slightly too - it'll help make the features pop that bit more.
