All right I followed Rebecca's advise and put a chalk paper on top of my drawing and started comparing my drawing with the ref.
I found out that having the right proportions on the torso is extremely important if you want the other body parts to be scaled correctly. What I'm trying to say is that due to the torso I first drew being too narrow, I drew the subjects left upper leg too short. Because I estimated the size of the left lower leg using the upper leg as a indication, this too was too small, etc
Same for the arms (biceps of right arm too short, right lower arm too narrow and too short ) and the head (too narrow).

Conclusion: I'll focus more on getting the torso proportions right in my future studies for this challenge... Thanks Rebecca

Here's the revised version of my first study, which is getting in the right direction



paolodelarosa nice lines!

DiM for a quicky that's really nice. His right leg seems a bit short though

Frejasphere charcoal? actually my girlfriend came home with a charcoal stick today and i'd like to try it out for a couple of torso's, so if you got any tips on using that (never did before, eg does it matter on what paper you use it? do I sharpen it like a pencil? etc) I'd be happy to hear from you

ytresu man you are fast

YMS I love your first!

Great work peepz, excuse me now, gotta do one more

My personal anatomy thread is still bugged because my server is still down, will fix that ASAP.

Hi and my best wishes to everyone, I see everybody around did a nice start and it's going to be really nice to learn more with such great artists around !

It's nice to see everyone's participation so far. Thanks everyone for the kind comments - this should be a great Workshop.

Here's a first one from me. Now that I look at it, the right shoulder needs a lot of work.

RUBENS, Pieter Pauwel
Cupid Making His Bow

Oil on canvas, 142 x 108 cm

I've redone this piece here.

I might revisit this.

JvdZ,

Welcome to CGTalk and to the Anatomy Forum. Nice sensitive touch to your drawing. I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Cheers,

-Rebeccak

Hey Maidith wow, only prob you have with this one is like I have with mine... a bit of highlights would spice things up
 
Old 09 September 2006   #60
Wow!!! 1'st day and so many posts already!

I just have 1 question. Do we have to use the provided reference, or may we find our own, or use no ref.?

Either way you can count me in. Thanks RebeccaK.
