HaloAnimator,

'K, here is my review for the child's body:


original drawing


suggested change

I think you're definitely on the right track here ~ the main thing is to lengthen the hands and feet a bit, and to thicken the arms. I would also suggest using curves which are offset (not perfectly parallel, as in your original legs) ~ this helps to give movement and life to your figure.

For an in~depth lesson on Opposing Curves, which I feel is a key Drawing concept, check out my REBECCA KIMMEL'S Anatomy Review 002: OPPOSING CURVES thread ~ I think this will really help you.

Hope this helps! Thanks for being patient.

~Rebeccak

HaloAnimator,

No prob! You're right, you just need to tweak and refine your drawings to get them there. Good luck!

Meet Paula

Hey everyone, here is an update on "Paula" with some hair roughed in. Please do not mind the ears for I am using a photograph in the modeling process to make them, I got the inspiration from a hair style that I saw....

Please feel free to give critique.

HaloAnimator,

I think that these are looking pretty good. The top drawing looks however as though she has a strange indentation where the part of her hair falls...remember that her entire skull must be represented before adding hair.

I am really liking the side view, as there is something of a 'Greek' sculptural look to the roundness of her head...I still think there could be more mass at the back of the skull, but that is up to you.

I think these are looking very good ~ now, to ask you ~ what do you think could be improved?

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

I am really wanting to add more mass to the hair, and that dent was supposed to be a part in the hair, (which was a bitch to draw, as well as the headband). I also want to try and improve the ears a little as well in the future drawings...I will fix the hair a bit, since I have never drawn hair in Ortho.

I am also afraid that she may look too adult in the face area...I mean Paula is 5 years old

Kashif,

Have you thought about joining us in the

BEGINNERS' Drawing Workshop - Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain - With Stipick_S

? Forgive me if you've already joined in and I've forgotten, but I think this would be quite a useful Workshop for you if you have the time...many people of all levels are doing it, and I think are getting quite a lot out of it. I can send you materials if you need time to order the book.

Cheers!

~Rebeccak

Hey rebecca, I will be sure to order the book, I can probably find at my local library. A friend of mine told me that Paula looks like a teenager, do you think she does? ANd if so, what could I possibly change to make her look 5 years old...

Thanks

An Adult Drawing: Amara





Hey fellow Artists.

This is a new drawing that I put together Saturday night, after doing a little bit of study on the female anatomy. This is another chracter that is going to the anatagonist in my short film to the little girl (that I posted here previously). I did make use of the Artist's Female Model just as a source of motivation, and looked at pictures of nude women to get things correct. She will also be used in a separate project all her own.

For her clothing, I am trying to find references of clothing for a Cherokee Indian, and drawing them to the best of my ability. I have never drawn cloth wrinkles so this should be a great exercise. But I don't want to go overboard on the wrinkles since I will using the drawing as a Rotoscope in XSI.

A few notes on the character: I did not want the breasts to be a focus on the character so I decided against them being too big and strayed away the best I could from the clichè "Barbie-doll" physique. At first it was tough to get the basic structure the way I wanted it, so a few attempts were made. I arrived at this one. I chose to make her 7 heads nude, and 7.5 heads in case she wears boots with heels.

I have a few more sketches of her in ortho (still being refined), with different physiques, yes even with a huge breast version to fit the "voluptuousness" of the character (not really an intent of mine, just for fun)

I have now added the back of her...trying to get some musculature in the back as well

Feel free to offer critique and advice.

Thanks

Kashif R.

Hey Rebecca, feels good to be back.

I took some time off from art to continue on other things, but I have kept up the art stuff. I found time to even redraw my little kid's body...looking forward to your advice

Kashif,

You should definitely participate in this thread:

I5 Minute Sketchathon - Thread 2: Sketches
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthr...t=295498&page=1

I5 Minute Sketchathon - Thread 1: Reference
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?t=298699

You use the Reference Images from Thread 1, and post the resulting drawings / paintings in Thread 2.
It's a great way to practice one's drawing / painting skills, and is fast and painless ~ only 15 minutes per drawing is allowed!

I definitely recommend it ~ be warned, it's very addictive!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Amara Cherokee Garb

These are some more drawings of the garb I want her to wear, but it is so hard to find traditional Cherokee clothing that I had to go by what I saw on tv...namely the movie "Last of the Mohicans". In this one, I did not want her to reveal too much cleavage so I kept it minimum. I did have a modified one where it reveals some of her leg through a slip on the dress part, but it did not make the cut but the drawing was so nice that i kept to toy with the idea.

I also want to draw the garb so I can learn how to draw wrinkles and shade the drawing when I want to conclude it... any critique and advice will be very helpful. I will post a Punk-Rocker version when I get to it. Thank you.

kalyse,

Yep, this is the right place. Welcome to the Anatomy Forum!

The first thing I would like to ask you ~ how much figure drawing experience have you had? Can you tell us a bit about your background and training? This helps me a great deal in terms of knowing where people are coming from.

Also, take a look at this thread:

Concept for 3D (woman yes)...Need Pointers I Guess...
http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthr...highlight=Guess

It's an older thread with some nice Ortho drawings as well.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak
