Gesture - digital 1

Done as part of a 30 minute class.

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


Hey, Amurphy your proportions seem to be going well. A whole figure would make it easier to critique, also I can't help but notice you attatch the thighs to the whole sides of the pelvis. They're actually attached further down. The bones of the thighs or hips start at the same height as the pubic arch or in laymans terms the base of whatever organ you have down there haha. Otherwise keep on grinding :-)


Thank you, i never noticed that! :)

Will remember your critique in future


Hey, I think you did a good job. Good luck on your goal (I struggle with proportions too haha), I'd also like to suggest doing a simple line of action and not to limit yourself with straight lines and circles. You might want to consider curvier lines, but you can keep the circles if you want. Overal, I think you captured your image in a 2D way, which is ok as long as you understand how things are pieced together in a 3D way. Great attempt! Remember to find good parts of your work as well as things to improve on, don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone- you'll learn quicklier.
