10 minute figure drawing

Hey, Rstevie, nice drawing. I really like the folds of the abdomen, breasts and the thigh. The thing I'm going to point out in this drawing is your shading. Do you see how you made the shoulder and arm flat by just filling it in without any concern what's underneath? Same goes for the crease by the beginning of the thigh, it's almost flat because you put the shade down without thinking of the mass underneath. If it's a studio shoot it might hard to draw because there are unnatural light sources and will throw you off. Remember that we invent what we draw, we don't copy what we draw, we re-enterpret what we draw so if it looks strange we have all the freedom in the world to change it in our drawing. Maybe I'm going off on a tangent here, hope it helped. (。・∀・)ノ


Hey, Boop, thanks for the advice I TOTALLY see how my shading left my figure looking flat. I'm still getting use to this time restraint on drawing figures, so I'm kinda preoccupied with just getting the whole figure down on the paper. I love how loose drawings can get when a time limit is thrown into the mix.
