Looking over my Spectacular, I allmost got shocked when I realized that all my pirates had bad anatomy. Something has to be done, I have to make correct anatomy a semi-automatic prosess, but I've been pushing it since I realized it and it's about time I start!

I'll post something tomorrow. I just making this topic so I really will do something tomorrow and not just push to another day it again

Thank you :)
Been lurking here a long time, but I should deffinitly take a closer look and maybe also post in them. (I think you forgot about urgaffel)
Can we post animals and skelektons too?

Lady Medusa,

This is quite a nice drawing! :) Yep, we have an Animals thread, and pretty much any kind of thread you can think of. :)

I'll post some key links later ~ can't right now while I'm at work ~ but looking forward to seeing more of your work! :)

Lady M,

I think you have some good studies here. :) One thing I notice is that you have a tendency to elongate / lengthen limbs / figures a bit unnaturally. I would try to work on doing a few Master Copies to practice proportion and relative size ~ would you like me to post some Master Drawings here from the web, or would you prefer to post your own? :)

Cheers,

haha, funny, I was just about to draw more legs when you posted ^^

I'll try it, I got quite some paintings in my bookmarks already so you don't have to find :)

I'll post them as I do them :)

Lady M,

Very nice piece ~ I'm impressed! :) Keep going...set a goal to do maybe 2~3~5 of these this week. You'll notice the improvement! :)

Wow Medusa! Those studies are awesome! Love the solid feel of the back head study. Simple, but VERY effective!

Lady M,

I don't think this 'failed' at all...:)...in fact, I think this study turned out quite well. :thumbsup: Keep going though ~ you will definitely learn more on the second try. Looking forward to seeing your new piece! :)

Lady M,

This is a good start. :) The proportions are a bit odd ~ do you plan to work more on this, and push the rendering farther? I think there would be a nice payoff if you did!

Cheers, :)

I have to admit that I'm rather fachinated by skeletons, particularly craniums

This is just continuing on the previous :)
My fingers hurt now x.x

Noticed so much asymetry, hope it look a little more corect.
I just noticed some errors on the front, not sure if I'll fix them or just start another one.

Lady M,

Techincally speaking, the basic painting is coming along quite nicely! :) However, I think you might consider retweaking the proportions quite a bit ~ the skull is a bit too elongated, especially at the top, and too wide / thick at the bottom / jaw area.

What are your thoughts on this? :)

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I like the rendering on the skull a lot. But the proportions seems to be just off. Unless you are going for something more humanoid than human persay. Keep up the good stuff. Loved the nice soft feel of studies on page 1

I think I focused a little too much on what I thought when I saw mr.Turners Skull when I drew it. It appears so long so I exaggerate it whitout acctually knowing it since my brain is thinking, "Man, This guy had a loooong head :S"

Should be doing humans <.<... good exersise anyway I think :)
Had to be speedy since she moves a whole lot even while sleeping.
First one is traditional, second is digital, in case you were wondering about the different line sharpness

Lady M,

I love your second drawing! :) Completely adorable! I have also been following your CollabBattle Challenge thread, and the work you're doing there is just incredible! I really think you should post that here, as well (or to the Creatures Thread). :D :thumbsup:

lol, I was too busy whit the challenge to notice that last comment, Miss Kimmel XD

Shadow study:
Not sure if it fits in here since it's a towel though
http://www.home.no/medusa/klut1.jpg
I'm quite happy whit it :)

And now over to THE Frustration, whit a capital "F"
Foot:
http://www.home.no/medusa/foot1.jpg
Did some other ones too, but they didn't really resemble feet at all :S
I Hate Feet DX. I'm going to do them until I can get them correctly this time.
The pose is close to the one my female fairie has in my "The Journey Begins" entry

Hey, that towel is looking really nice, Lady M! :thumbsup:

LOL about the Challenge :D - I haven't been very good about checking threads recently, but will try to get over later. :)

I think the foot is looking good, but I think it's really tough to do this kind of digital drawing with a hard brush. You might try a charcoal brush or something with just a bit of texture. For some reason, this just makes a straight drawing easier to do. :)

Let's see those foot studies, then!

Cheers, :)

Unfortunatly I forgot to save the other feet studies D:! I was only going to hurry and switch of the machine for a reason I can't remember :'(... oh well, done is done.

I'm doing another project, that should help me learn anatomy, seeing as I tend to remember things a little easier this way.
Unead Warriors and stuff!! (Oh-so-surpisening of me XD. And yes, I will most probably do an ork or some other brute like humanoid creature)
Even if they are 3d, it is ok to post them here right?

First I'm going to make the skeleton, then I'll put muscles on some of them, then skin and then clothes.

So here is my first attemt:
http://www.home.no/medusa/Cranium1.jpg
lol, yeah, nothing impressive (as of yet ;D)... But when I had reached this far I noticed how much detail I had forgotten ^^; (Teeth were supposed to get added afterward)
So next try I'll compose his cranium, part for part and see if it gets better :)
I also noticed how I elongated this one aswell :S, this guy is now shrinked and hopefully at least in proportion ^^

The cranium got so many odd features
No theeth or cracks yet, but its better than my first try :D

I've noticed that on most cranium pictures, one of the parietals appear shorter or just flatter. Wierd and intresting.

This time I'm not sure what is wrong ^^
Not sure If I'll do teeth or mandible next, think I'll do mandible :)

Lady M,

My apologies for missing your last post ~ hey it's very cool to see you working in ZBrush! :)

Do you know about this ongoing Workshop?

3D Workshop: Digital Anatomy Sculpture 1! The human hand - With Simon Roth (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=349973)

In it Simo's showing some ZBrush basics which may help out in your project. I'm sure he wouldnt' mind at all looking at what you are doing. :)

Here's a really good source for Anatomy Reference:

Anatomy Atlases (http://www.anatomyatlases.org/atlasofanatomy/plateindex.shtml)

and here is a page of skulls:

Also, definitely check out this thread for useful Anatomy Resources:
