Everyone,

Also please note that these same poses are posted on the I5 Minute Sketchathon (see post #382) and that everyone is encouraged to try both short (15 minute) sketches of these poses on that thread, and to continue to refine their work on this thread.

Post your 15 Minute Sketches on the I5 Minute Sketchathon thread, and post your more finished studies here.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Dark3D,

Nice! Very nice loose linework, and I like the ruddiness of the hands. I think these are some great poses.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

David,

Beautiful work on the arm! The honeyed tones in this image are beautiful ~ I've actually drawn live from this model, she's really a pro.

Actually, if you look up jeremyengelman's posts on this forum, he has done some interesting 3D models from this pose ~ I think in ZBrush, if I'm not mistaken. It's kind of amazing, because he did the 3D sculpts in about the same time as anyone else would do a drawing of the pose. Pretty cool, check it out!

Great work so far ~ I really love this pose, and hope to be participating in this OFDW.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Dark3D,

The upper torso is beautiful on this piece ~ it's great to see you tackling more rendered paintings! The main thing I notice is that the area of her waist, where her upper torso twists against her lower torso / pelvis, is wrong ~ I think that she needs a bit more of a waist, and a less aggressive line to describe the twist. But I love the greenish cast to the arms and the capturing of the feel of this pose ~ that's really quite nice.

I'm going to try to hop into this Workshop later this week ~ at last! It will be fun to work along with you guys.

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

eggsrgood,

Welcome to the Anatomy Forum, and to the OFDWs, it's great to have you aboard! Nice sketch you have here, I really like the loose, gestural quality of line you have! One thing I would ask on this thread is that posts be no more than 800 pixels width x appropriate pixel length. No biggie, it just makes browsing easier.

With respect to shading / painting, check out the following demos / tutorials:

TUTORIAL - Digital Figurative Painting from OFDW - by Rebeccak

Black and white digital painting

TUTORIAL - Digital Figure Painting - by Samanthie
Color digital painting

Jealousy - Step by Step

Stahlberg's b/w & color blending mode technique digital painting tutorial

I always recommend that beginning digital (and traditional) painters start out creating grayscale paintings. Value, I deeply believe, is far more important than color. Not that you are necessarily a beginner ~ I don't know that.

What is your background and training? I am always intersested to know.

PS, your signature cracks me up!

Cheers,

~Rebeccak

Hey thanks for the links RebeccaK, shall look at those in depth. Sorry about the size, i'll fix that for ya.

I'm a newbie in the sense that I haven't picked up a pencil since high school. We had the pleasure of working from a live model there. That is definitely the most enjoyable way to sketch. Really get a sense of the form.

I've been doing 3d for a little, hence my silly signature, but really wanting to get back into 2d. Got to say, I love your style of drawing. Do you always use digital? Some of the ones you post have the analog feel to it that digital just hasn't got yet. Thanks for making me feel welcome.
