Done as part of a 30 minute class.

My current goal is: Improve at correctly capturing the overall proportions of the human form


Hi Jmanu!

It looks like you have made a great start on your proportions studies and have even been trying out foreshortening on the second page! It's great that you aren't shying away from the tougher angles and it is bound to help you.

I notice that one or two of your figures are maybe a little more stocky than they need to be. It's something that I also struggle with so I can empathise. You may find it helpful to plan out your proportions in the under drawing. For example, measure and mark how many heads tall the chest, legs, or arms are. You can do that for width too.

I love the muscle definition in your final piece. Using the inside contour really adds a sense of mass the figure, and helps it to jump out of the page.

You are doing great! Keep it up!


Hi Pochik, thanks for your advice and comments! :)
