Continuing my search for my Tiny Dancer. This is one of the A-o-L figures.
That's a might swell job you've done here on your "Tiny Dancer," txWilliep. Sweller job on your range of motion and anatomy.
So if I was to completely and totally provide you with some very, very, very sincere critique is that I think your anatomical motion is definitely and absolutely on the right track, but, I really feel that most of the graphic shapes or the lines are getting to be a bit too rigidest and timidest. Would you please loosen yourself up and draw the largest and longest with 30 minutes of 119 second (1 minute, 59 second) poses of the nudes and clothed poses? (custom timer) (1800/119=15 quick poses) with some of the Proko free course on YouTube?? Here:
The reason why you could and would do this suggestion for improvement is because, to can and will be able to help you out in your goal,(if you knew what that is from the start) and to help make your drawings and line quality to be the least solidest, and the most dynamic, loosest, liveliest, lightest, longest, largest, energetic and fluid.
Cheers and good luck to you and your goal.
Thank you for critiquing my drawing. Are you back from vacation? If so, I hope you had a great time. If not, I hope you are continuing to have a great time.
My L-o-A goal:
Drawing the figure in many different positions and, if necessary apply distortion because of foreshortening and/or perspective. (my goal has not changed & I am harassed about that.)
If you look at the figure carefully, you will see very lite guidelines I put in, to begin with. Remember I am using a pen & permanent ink which you can not change. If you make a mistake, to bad, oh well move on. For life drawing sessions, I do the same but there is a 2 min, 3 min, 5 min, or a 10 min or so time limit. I am also the timekeeper.
In the final watercolor, I will redraw the figure( so I need as much detail as I can get) plus the surrounding environment- trees, sand, etc. I am planning only one figure in the work,
I like your lines. They have character. The neck doesn't look like it belongs to the dancer. It helps me to measure the shapes with my pencil.
Thank you for critiquing my drawing. Remember I am using a pen & permanent ink to draw. So if I make an error then oh well, too bad, move on. I agree with you the upper left shoulder is not right & should be corrected, but I can not. Yes, I do measure with my pen, pencil, or a large tongue depressor.
