Eric UNSL,

Thank you for posting this lovely drawing! I like your linework a lot, and think that the upper portion of the face is particularly well-done.

NOT that this thread is in any way primarily about my opinion (it is about EVERYONE'S contribution), but my two-cent crit would be that angle of the lips is a bit off relative to the angle of the eyes and nose.

Looking forward to seeing more of your posts!

AmirP,

Thank you for posting your work! I particularly like the first drawing, as I believe it demonstrates a strong understanding of form, particularly around the upper torso.

I think you would greatly benefit from copying ANATOMICAL PLATES from books ~ as this can only strengthen and deepen your understanding of form.

Stay tuned for upcoming LESSON threads, as we will be addressing these topics then.

Thanks for your post!

Anyone should feel free to offer comments and critique

Really think I will benefit from this new forum, thanks rebecca! Here's two i've done. Did these after about a year away from doing any life drawing, were both timed for 20 minutes in a class a few months ago.

yAdam,

Thank you for posting these! Ah, I do love backs, as they offer myriad interesting shadow shapes, particularly if there is good light source and the torso is slightly turned.

Continue to draw DAILY if you can! Please post more of your work as you are able.

Thank you!

No problem! You are welcome!

Looks like a great book ~ I think you should ABSOLUTELY draw from books like that. The best method for learning how to draw is to draw from LIFE and from Anatomy books AT THE SAME TIME.

Thank you for your posts!

I did this piece for my second life drawing class I took two years ago. It took me...maybe an hour and a half, I can't recall exactly how long. The medium are pencils and paper. Good ol'pencils and paper.

I just used the model in the class. The white part underneath him, which was a cloth on a chair, was a bit hard to get because the light wasn't hitting it just right, so it may look like that he's floating or something. I should've exaggerated the shading there.

I did these for a drawing class last summer. Can someone help me weed one of these 6 drawings out?

30 min



45 min? (I think :P )



45 min



2 hours? My teacher said this was my weakest drawing:



Probably an hour and a half - I'm thinking of tossing this one out:



The following 2 were actually done on a giant sheet of paper for my final. I couldn't get a good enough quality picture, so I had to split them up. Originally done in blue color pencil, but that didn't turn out well:

These are some figure drawings that I did while completing a drawing minor at school. I usually enjoy style of the French Academy. These all started as life drawings however some of them ended up pulling from photograph's. Hope you enjoy, and critiques are always welcome.

Sorry about that. Just read the original post. The first two ended up using some photo reference, but the last was life. See if I can find some more...Oh yeah and bye the way...I think that this forum is a great idea and I plan to frequent it often.
