Grace H-25 min

by Gehenderson, April 6th 2020 © 2020 Gehenderson

Done as part of a 1 hour class.

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


The overall form and gesture look solid although there seem to be some issues with your understanding of how the legs turn in 3D space. I suggest you focus on looking at the position of the thighs, knees and calves.

Personally, I am quite impressed with how well you got the shape of the ribcage, hips and neck. It should be more important to continue capturing the gesture as you have done rather than jump straight into shading. For example, those under the foot and behind look scribbled in and does not add to the quality of your work.

I don't know much about using charcoal but I seriously suggest using a thinner line to demonstrate confidence and know exactly where the position of the body lies.

Hope that helps; keep going :3

Nice job on your 25 min sketch, on your 1 hour class mode, gehenderson. Great work on it. Yet I've got one small idea: Why don't you do another 30 minute class mode on your figure studies, pretty please, please, please??? The reason why is because, your overall human proportions will be more and more solid, more and more fluid, and livelier at that round. Hope you'll find it essential in your next try.
