haha yeah, human bodies are hard work but you get used to it when you draw more. I remember the time when I took drawing class and drew people on the buses and trains. But also remember that perfecting the proportions of the real human anatomy is not the only route you can take but you can adjust the proportion to fit your own. Good examples would be Justice League or Gears of War where their proportions are either more extremified or bulky. There is no right or wrong in art but rather whether you, the artist, feels that you have achieved your goal to convey it in the way you wanted it to be.

 

Other than that, keep up the good work. wink.gif

yOU SAID YOU GOT A FIGURE DRAWING BOOK YOU DIDN'T MENTION IT WAS THE LOOMIS ONE

 

That book is so good. I've looked over it in ebook form before they started reprinting them, but now that they are available again I'm looking to get for my birthday the figure drawing one and perhaps either Fun With a Pencil or Creative Illustration *crosses fingers*

 

ZC is right -- proportions can be modified by style! Though it helps to have a grasp of the "ideal" proportions even though in real life, there's barely anyone in the world who has perfect proportions; personally, I find it just as useful to look at alignment i.e. the relationship between body parts. For figure and gesture drawing, it's nice to go out and sketch people while they are moving or doing daily things so you can capture the essence of the form quickly and effectively (drawing classes have periods of 30 second/1 minute/5 minute/10 minute poses to train that, and you've probably done that in art class in school).

 

For the actual, technical drawing aspect, don't be afraid with your lines when you're inking. I've noticed that a lot of your anime drawings have "fuzzy" lines. Even in sketches, try not to make your lines choppy but stroke them with one fluid motion (when drawing digitally, feel free to draw it slowly and spam Undo). Instead of going over an area multiple times to emphasize it, do that by varying line weight. Whether you overall use thinner or thicker lines is up to personal preference.

 

The other technical thing is: don't be afraid to have more contrast in your shading. (I still struggle with this too.) You have the liberty to make your darks darker to make a more visually appealing whole. If you put your drawing in greyscale, does it still look as good? Not too related, but

is the video that made the shading concept click for me.

 

Coincidentally, these are points 1 and 2 of Figure Drawing For All Its Worth, page 24.

wha what they sell them at T&T why did no one ever tell me this i thought you had to import the thing (but then again I just recently discovered that T&T carried Ramune so maybe i'm super out of the loop or my local asian supermarket is super small compared to the likes of Toronto or Vancover)

omfg im in tears same mage i just found it and i was like !!!!!

 

omg YES i bought ramune too but i haven't tried it yet ufff drinking too much soy milk like #lactose intolerant life, yes thank u

omg uffff big asian supermarkets are the best tho i feel so much my asian store is tiny so we just drive to vancouver : ' D or surrey pfftt

 

hello friends i have very exciting news that's probably more exciting to me than it is to you but hecka yea i am finished summer school so now i will have more time to draw!!! zoom zoom snap snap gets right on that art challenge so fast

ufff so i'm going to revise my to-do list at the beginning of my art thread and try to get as much drawing as i can done in this time period i have between freedom and school (as long as work doesn't pick up bc if it does i'll cry)

in the meantime

have some poetry i found

uff i wrote this stuff at the beginning of the year so : ' D excuse my mistakes

also it's kinda dark but i don't think there are ??? any triggers???? if so pls tell me and i will put warnings but otherwise yes hello greek gods @zeus don't be mad at me

 

idk what to name this so

fata's poem

 

Dionysus sips wine from a goblet

plentiful and red and sour

wonders why no food tastes ever as great

as wine fulled by drunken rage

makes the world a theater

and he is the leading fool.

 

Hermes travels between borders

stows away a pretty penny every time he walks

he steals and gambles and ends up in jail

to make sure they will not forget his name

he sings his children to sleep with police sirens

and they have long forgotten his laugh.

 

Hephaestus adopts a child weak from birth

knows well enough to endure the jests

he loves his children endlessly

for he knows the scorn of a mother that never was

still with his limp he does not stop working

and no one is to blame when he slips from the skies.

 

Aphrodite is a cloud in the night

beautiful and elegant and monstrous

refuses to let her children grow beautiful

she leaves in the night without a word

dances on silk wrapped around bare ankles

a maelstrom that only comes once.

 

Ares orders his soldiers better than his children

spends his nights off drinking with Aphrodite

his first instinct is action rather than words

and the badges on his uniform sparkle red

having the police chief for a father

does not mean justice is always served.

 

Artemis shoots high and falls low

spends her days in crisp uniforms

she keeps her fingers ringless

and her posture high and proud

she remembers Zeus, Tityus, Python

men never keep their promises.

 

Apollo wakes on silk bedsheets

beautiful and golden and loved

he does not tell of causing Leto pain

Or murdering Niobe's children

Still he cannot find how to love

But he's been lying his entire life.

 

 

Athena is the stuff of history books

defines the modern woman

a better officer than Ares can ever dream

she keeps sharp tabs on her birds and work

yet she never arrives at the doorstep

she looks better as an eleven foot statue.

 

Poseidon was a surfer

all the girls love a sun-tanned boy

yet he still desires what he cannot have

watches Medusa with a careful seeker's eye

traps her in a back alleyway

with beer and seawater on his breath.

 

Hera's face appears everywhere on the news

left at home with newborns and a cripple

solitude only drives one to madness

and Hera has been alone since Zeus wed her

there is no excuse for trying to kill a child

but no one will hear her story.

 

Zeus breaks teeth with his gold rings

Clenches men between his fingers

and laughs at the world

he knows only power and nothing else

the god of the world is emotionless

he cannot care for anything but himself.
