Anatomy Thread of agou - 2D/3D

Here I am! I eventually begin my anatomy thread !!! Yeaaah! I have some oldies, some "nude" sketches, but they were done 2-3 years ago, so I don't think I'll show them at first time. But now, I begin to practice more anatomy, taking reference from photos and from master copies. I need to improve my skills, and I think it works, soooo... I think that's the good moment to begin my own thread, because thanks to your (future) comments, it will help me a lot.

Here are my two 15 minutes sketches, to begin with:





and a new one, thx to photo ref


See ya!

Not a bad start! For the line drawing you may want to draw lighter and draw the forms more. I would draw them as cylinders than shade them that way. This should help with foreshortening. Also I would check the heaviness of your line. If you ever draw teeth this way, your going to run into a problem. The teeth will look like they are diseased. Notice on the the photo, not everything has an outline on it. Some areas can be suggested with shadow. The outline tends to flatten the depth of the image. Its great for animation though.


You may want to do some shadow studies and volumetric studies. One type of study that I find pretty usefull is when you form the shapes via selective scribbling. The denser areas areas of scribble are where the shadow is deeper. Its almost like a sculpture style of drawing since your describing form and mass more.

My favorite sketch of yours is the third one. I also really like the gestural quality of the first.

agou,

It's great to see you start your Anatomy Thread! I particularly like the linework you have in your second piece, and hope to see many more studies! I really recommend Life Studies as well as Master Studies. Do you have access to life drawing classes in your area?

I encourage people to do Master Copies ~ see this useful thread with links to Master Copy Resources:

Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi Sophie!
I really like the top sketch - very nice movement and well captured I think. Also, as Rebecca the second have very nice linework.

Looking forward to see more!

I'm glad to see so much people in my thread! Come in, come in, that's great to have some comments!
Womball> great advices, really. I'll follow them. The exercise about shadows and volumes seems to be a good advice too; in fact I used to do some, when I studied in college, but as I said, I didn't practice traditional art (and anatomy) for a couple of years. So now I need to train a little bit.

Rebeccak> hey, thanks for your kind words! in fact, there are some life studies classes in my city, I used to attend some of them, but they stop during summer (until october i think). So I guess I'll train thanks to master copy and life observation, and thanks to cgtalk too!

Gunilla> it's nice of you to come in my little thread, welcome!

Zapan> aaaaaaaah, je l'attendais celui-lą! Here you are! Hehe, I planned for a long time to create my ooown anatomy thread, I dreamed about it for many many times, and also I hoped that you would spam in it. I'm sooo happy now! Come to spam whenever you want Stef, anatomy spamming is welcome here.
And about 3D? Yep, why not? I have more time now, and still a lot of things to improve in 3D, that's an idea.

Cheers people!

agou,

Looking forward to your OFDW participation then! OFDW 018 begins tomorrow night!

By the way, I love your drawings / paintings on your website, they have such a sense of charm and a certain kind of whimsy ~ really nice work!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hi people, I'm back.
In fact, I didn't really know what I may add to this thread, for the moment I don't really have time to make life drawings. I 'll be on vacation next week, and then, I'll be moving, so I don't think I'll have time to make a break and do some sketches.
However, I began a master copy (from a Waterhouse painting), and I'm planning to do seriously some exercises to improve anatomy in my sketches. Meanwhile, I made some character designs, for fun, and I can't help showing them. I took care to proportions and to posing, I spent more time than usual on them (usually, that's no more than 15-20 minutes) and... well... I think it's worth it.

(and yeah, she has big thighs)






voilą... crits are welcome...and spam a little bit too...
See you!

Hey, have fun on vacation!

Ah, very much looking forward to the Master Copy. With the first character sketch, her arms seem a bit small ~ it's hard to crit at such an early stage, it would be great to see these further developed.

Cheers,

Here is my participation to the "Head challenge", I did my first sketches in Photoshop, all in greyscale to study volume and lights.

I began with my friend Richelieu, then the pretty lady, done this morning...





Oh et Rebecca, thx for supporting this poor little thread, hope you like it!

agou,

Great to see you in this! Lovely studies, these look effortless. Only comment would be that perhaps a bit more contrast would bring out the features even more. Looking forward to lots of studies!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Yeah, Steph is here! Hehe, I don't think I will draw on the beach (too much sand and too much water), but when I said I would be on vacation, that meant really little vacations, because I will have to help my sister to move, and I will have to move myself.
But really I can't help doing this challenge, vacations or not; it's too great.



And you're right Rebecca about contrast in my studies. I realize they're too palish...

See you'!

agou,

One thing I would recommend is to take these a little further, and to give more of a range of value to the grayscale pieces, and more saturation to the color pieces. Don't go sheerly for quantity, but try to push each piece until it 'works', at whatever level of finish that is. A piece can work quite nicely even or sometimes especially at a rough stage, such as your previous grayscale pieces. Try to push yourself to create pieces that are simple, yet read as form. This is the tough part of the exercise, more so than the number.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak
