Done as part of a 30 minute class.

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

Nice to meet you. I'm participating from Japan. I would be very happy if you could give me a critique. I'm not very good at English, so I'm using translation software to write this text.

I may not be able to write a good reply, but if you give me a critique, I would like to refer to it.

Hi Akikoma.

I'm a student too, from Brazil, so i'm gonna give just a different opinion from my point of view.

If your objective is improve in the proportions of the human form, try to attempt more to the length of the members, legs and arms. I think you torso it's awesome, so just focus on the other parts!

I hope my opinion helps you in something.

Your choice of where to put your main lines is great!

the body shapes have a good contour although they seem a bit flat - you might want to try drawing very simple indications of the shading to help the viewer interpret the volume of the body. For example the torso looks quite well but maybe if you showed the way the chest protrudes forward it could look better.

Good luck with your practice! :)
