Inktober Day 18

by Jman3, October 19th 2018 © 2018 Jman3

Done as part of a 30 minute class. My current goal is: Better understand human anatomy, so I can render imagined poses I will use Inktober as a way to getting better at drawing human figure and try to get a more consistent drawing schedule by gaining some skill and therefore more pleasure to continue bettering my artistic abilities.

I missed a 30 minute drawing session yesterday but I spent the time reading some comments I had on previous days. Some of the drawing formats seen should be different compared to days prior, hopefully I can stay consistent with it and build off it. I will draw for a longer period today to make up for missing the day before and do a detailed drawing to make up for the one I should have done on the 15th tomorrow.

I started today with a skull study and torso/leg proportion study per a comment I received. I think the proportion study was quite helpful and made a noticeable difference in todays session. I also made the drawings larger overall instead of trying to keep them smaller. The last three I tried to use my bold pen to get the form of the figure with only a few lines then add some details with my fine ballpoint pen. That technique is still a long way to go for me, definitely need to practice drawing from the shoulder and making long dynamic lines.

Critique is open this time I am curious to see what others think.

Notes for the final drawing:

This time around wasn't as bad as I expected by the silhouette of the torso is not so good. I should have added more curve to the hips instead of keeping the spinal curve so mild. I tried to do some lighter shading to help it pop out a little more but that did not help (last time I tried a darker shading).
