Some of those toes are downright interesting. Hobbit feet. Nobody here’s a Hobbit, right? It’s why I’m practicing these. Still stuff to learn. The aspects are just complicated.

STFVIT, grafik and nkirill. Thanks! Glad you think so. I grumble about my drawing, but…

Learning feet is good, as…

I always draw legs from the top down and they tend to end up in a directionless and perplexed conundrum. Sooner I get a road map, the better.

When I see all those studies… I realize how terrible I am at anatomy and that I should study a lot more !
Thank you for sharing your work, it is really inspiring.



It’s for a purpose.

But, talking to other people here, I’m starting to wonder what really works.

If it’s really necessary to do these studies.

I might be old school, where you learn things from textbooks that have line drawings. So I think I should.

With the net, now there are all sorts of poses and life models to copy and art methods to emulate.

I’m starting to think doing those instead is enough.

If we recognize people personally by appearance or attitude or voice, without really knowing their bone structure, or psychoanalysing or voice box, why wouldn’t a capable drawing of a given subject be just as valid without all the textbook anatomy?

It’s a new question to me, so I don’t have an answer.

The idea is, to draw a given character, gender, role, get poses, examples, character models and learn what they look like.

Without the technical study.

I don’t know.

This is probably bad form or even backhanded, though I can’t analyze why, but-

To be quite blunt, I’m doing all these to be able to do what you’re doing.


I don’t have one image in my thread that’s similar.

All I said above may sound critical of your method, but if you’ve indicated that you haven’t gone to all the trouble with anatomy, then again quite frankly, your drawings/images still work great.

So what I’m doing here just might be preoccupied scribbling when I should just be making my next image.

I’m not sure.

Working to follow all the details and forms, my style has seemed to tighten a bit. Let the blood flow.](


Cool sketches. Love the lines.


Very nice and dynamic sketch!


Hi Beatrix.

You think so? I like to think the chin angles don’t go off so much. But, I don’t know. Some sketches veer off sometimes.

They really are from photos. I think the aquamarine girl is the better one.

Hmm. Well, I have the day off. So, I’ll be working on them today.

You don’t have an Instagram, do you? You have a Facebook… I think. I’ll need to look.

Later on.


I can’t believe I forgot downward vertical converging perspective.

Just bonked on the whole concept, looking right at the thing.

I use that all the time.

No wonder things weren’t adding up.

How could I forget that?



[#DrawCember #MadeWithWacom

Still a work in progress. A little altered already.


Oohh! How wonderful!:eek:
