Figure drawing practice

by Loligo, May 19th 2022 © 2022 Loligo

Practicing figure drawing atm. Any pointers are great! I'm a bit rusty so if you have any reading/study material please point me into that direction! :


I would make the legs longer, they look quite small compared to the rest of the body.


That would be a good start indeed, thanks!


Hi loligo, you are clearly prioritising the line of action and proportion - if you're feeling rusty that's exactly the right thing to do and you can see that it's working.
You could also use the same 'line of action' principle with the limbs, hands and feet rather than initially drawing shapes, then (when you add shapes) look for shapes of light and dark, negative shapes and shadow rather than what you know about the limbs or body.
