Done as part of a 30 minute class. My current goal is: Develop my own signature drawing style (advanced)


First of all, mad respect man, shit looks pretty good!

I don't really know if you want tips on developing your style or general critique on what you could improve, so I'll first give you some tips. Wether you read my critique is up to you!

If you want to develope a style, you could look at some of your Artworks you really like and what you about them you like. Maybe also create a moodboard. A second really helpful step is to look at artists you like and what about them you like. Also put your favorite artworks of them in the moodboard, should give you a better understanding of what you want your style to be.

(This is the critique for your poses)

Your Anatomy is pretty much spot on, nice, clean and readable shapes all flowing together, you have good understanding of the line of action and the flow of your poses. One thing you could improve, is your proportions, the dancers right leg looks a bit like it's squished into the floor. To improve on that I would recommend to instead of drawing a few poses in half an hour draw as many as you can, helps getting a better grasp. That's it, other than that your poses look great, you can definitely be proud of yourself :)

Polyvios Animations

Hello again, dinaodess, and welcome back. How are you doing tonight? Say, I love how much understanding of tones on something as more complex as the human figures. I think that you can and will have the greater chance, but I feel that the gestures are still needing some more work. Would you like to please go for 45 minutes of 5 minute attitudes, all done underhandedly? (9 drawings)

The reason why is because, your signature style will be quickly done less stiffer but more dynamic, uniquer, and expressive. For more details, please look into Vol. 1 of Drawn to Life right here??

Good luck from me to you.
