Exceptional figure drawing, txWilliep, but I've got one small recommendation: What is your current goal for tonight?

The reason why is because, you'd get a very specified idea of what you want to work on.

Hope it's been completely and utterly helpful and accessible.

Thank you for the critique. I am not sure what you mean. I have not changed my goal. Nor do I intend to change my goal. Most people do not like large people as models. My point is that they make excellent models with a lot of interest to work with. With the 4 photos of Olga, I wanted to show she is an excellent subject for art. The drawings were done one after the other. I did not time them. I just did them. As I have said, I reserve the right to distort the drawings as I feel they warrant. The left foot & leg is back towards the viewer; therefore, perspective says that it will be bigger.


Good drawing, you have good attention to anatomy. However, the overall pose looks off-balance, like the model is about to fall on her face (or leaning against a wall). It's hard to say why this is without the reference picture but it could be that both legs are (mostly) on the left half of the drawing, placing the foot closer to the viewer more to the right could fix it.

Thank you for taking the time to critique my picture. You might want to check the photo of Olga. If you check the photo, you can draw a vertical line from the head down to the right side of the body through the right leg & through the left foot (closest to the viewer). I do not agree that it is off-balanced.

Good value on the shapes the shadow behind the right calf and the left foot feels tighter than the right hip and lower back.
