Fedodika the Koala
A huge breakthrough I had some weeks ago for studying is to do callouts of what you are drawing, maintaining the design and the pose, but zooming in and fleshing out some element of it a bit more, with more detail and stronger form, maybe even changing the angle a bit, like product designers do

having to draw the same thing twice, but with a different emphasis really pushes your understanding of the design/form of what you are drawing; and yeah, it works exactly the same for drawing human figures from reference and from imagination.

Maybe even add small notes about how angles curve, what overlaps with what etc.

Gliger: thanks for that bro, gave me a reminder when i used to look at ryan langs old stuff on concept art.org. he would draw bridgemans book upside down and sideways, and he got really fuckin good; So ive been turning things on the page here and there trying to twist the shape here and there, also drawing upside down which is tough but not as tough as i thought!

really going hard on these, im really pushing my observation, each page takes a full hour now, for a front and back. im doing the roughs upside down, then correcting with the ref right side up, its like looking at drawings i did maybe 2 years ago. its good drawing things twice, hammers into that intuition on how to make a pose feel right. Also finished up this random chick, i know the outfit is random and stupid, its more an anatomy exercise, ill get to fashion at some point once im satisfied with anatomy, but (why not both)

i feel im definitely circling the bullseye with the proportions i want, getting real close, just gotta be able to do that effortlessly with ballpoint from imagination, theeeeen ill be a beast! and maybe even do inktober for once!

Good stuff as always Fed. Just careful with the last girl - we're seeing a bit too much booty (on our left hand side) for how her torso/hips are twisted.

Also yeeees, join inktober this year! It's a lot of fun to do, especially if you follow prompts to get the imagination going

Congrats with the 100th page of your sketchbook!!! XD
What is the first drawing? Have nothing to add for your poses, cause you know how to study and draw them. And nice personal drawing of action woman.
PS I've tried inktober the last year, managed to do 5 drawings and stopped. Cause the main problem for me is generating non-obvious idea in a quick manner. It took me 2-3 days for one prompt. I'm not sure I even be able to complete inktober ever.

Roanna: 100! yay! hehe.. uuh... well, 100 wow, im gettin old! thx <3 and the first drawing is a bird i drew on a thank you card, im gonna do that from now on if someone sends me money so itll make me look forward to doing thank you cards and not just writing thanks over and over in slightly different way

chubby: you know i see why you think its wrong, and you certainly wouldnt be irrational for saying that; ive just been copying this book and thats just how he does a booty in a pose like that... I think its wrong too, but like, ive had instances where ill draw a thing in painter from the book and go to add form and im like oh thats right actually, so its 50/50. I hope ill be ready for inktober, at this rate its possible!


moar power leveling... need to draw more dudes

270/300 pages through masters of anatomy book 1, might even finish by the end of the month! the digi ones are from imagination, im only spending like 30 mins on them, so i bet i could really make something cool given a ton of time
