Day 8 of Gestures

by Illustratorbiancad, June 2nd 2020 © 2020 Illustratorbiancad

Done as part of a 30 minute class.

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

Excellent work on your man figure, Illustratorbiancad, yet, I've got one little request for you: Would you like to go for 20 minutes of 5 minute male figure studies, pretty, pretty please, please?? And you know why??? It's because you get a lot more than looser with your over human arm proportions and angles (relationships), spaces, edges; and percieving them. Pray and hope that it can, shall, and will work out for you.

Hello Illustratorbiancad,

I really enjoyed your attempt. :) i really saw that the focus was in capturing the overall proportions i can see the hut in the head i can see the left part (infront part) very clear as i saw you made one wrong line thats why you couldnt concentreate in the right part (inside part) where you conect the hand with the thorax (bobie area). if it was more harmonically attouched to the body would be more easier for you to see the inside part of his body. But that didnt stopped me form admiring your 30 min sketch and wanted to encourage you to draw some harmonic lines paralel to the neck area (where is the shoulders) so you can see the body easier. Keep it like this and you would become awsome :)

Looking forward for your art in the future for review :)

Over all the figure looks good. However, the back foot looks odd, like it needs a little bit more of a heel.
