I need tips for necks and arms haha.
I love the face haha
I think you have the general shape of the torso layed down correctly, the shoulders could be slightly less broad but it's nice.
The muscles are starting strong, however I think you could work on understanding them and where they are placed, as well as how they interact with each other!
All in all, I think you're doing great!:)
Nice work on the muscular human pose, GiftW, very good job on making it sculptural and expressive, just a tad bit expressive.
To give you some tips on the neck and arms, I'd suggest looking up the Frank Netter and Eliot Goldfinger Human Anatomy books, and really, really use them for quick sketch and gesture drawing exercises, all rotated in a bunch of different ways, and flipped up against a mirror, with a physical book, that you could and should be able to find at your local bookstore. (if they still have them)
The reason why you could and should do this trick and exercise is, as a result, your neck and arm drawings will become the least stiffest and the most dynamic, vital, and energetic.
If you could learn how to draw sketch the necks and arms, then you would probably sketch out anything and everthing.
And to make your drawings more looser and organic, then I could recommend you that you loosen yourself up with 10 minutes of 30 second sketches and quick doodles, from model and/or memory.
The other reason is because, it could and should be able to help you out on drawing from your imagined images and your observation.
Good luck from me to you, and have fun learning to draw.
I can't make sketches for 30 seconds, that's too short time.
That's okay, it's OK if you can't really complete a sketch in 30 seconds, Gift.
Because, it could and would help you out on your next goal on making your sketches of body parts, such as necks, less stiff and more fluider, although it's just a part of the process, it's because it will be quite useful for breaking out of your comfort zone.
I hope that what I've responded all made sense. Good luck.
Hey Gift W, it's likely you have the wrong expectations for what you should be drawing/learning in 30 second windows. I strongly recommend you take the tutorial here: https://line-of-action.com/learn-to-draw
Most confusing tips. I lost motivation to this there's no point
I'm really sorry to hear that!
It was the tips umotovating me. 30 seconds is too short. Fromcharactersto Pose practice. The tips should at least be moredetailed. It feels like I'm wasting money on this.
Did you go through the tutorial or just look at the article?
Hey, this isn't exactly motivating. I tried already. I see no improvement. The characters thing doesn't work either.
