Well. I'm just gonna dump some stuff in this post.
I know there's a lot of crap there, but whatever. I'm still trying to get a hang on anatomy. I drew the ninja girl naked (i.e. with details), but censored it - I don't want to get flag for objectionable content. Her bosom is probably a bit on the large side with regards to how young she looks, and that boy looks a bit young for his body too. It doesn't really matter, though. I'm just trying stuff out.
I did some figure sketches this morning to practice more on anatomy. I should get into the habit of doing this every day.
It’s been awhile since I actually drew on paper, and I have this bad habit of drawing way too small. The first sketch, top left, is barely six centimetres high. I used a photo of Rachel Bilson to reference the pose on it, but kept my traditional 1:5 head body ratio.
(I usually draw the head to body ratio somewhere between 1:3 and 1:6, cause I think it fits my cartoony style and… well, I just like it. I want focus on the heads and the emotions).
The sketch to the right is just a male… thing. No references, 1:5 ratio (which is why he might look a bit stumpy). I need to learn more about muscles.
The third, big one, is at 1:8 ratio – attractive proportioning. I wanted to do a more realistic body. The pose was referenced from one of my artsy books I’ve got lying around.
I'm really trying hard to learn anatomy, and I've come to learn that drawing nude people is the best way. Clothes just get in the way. In all fairness, I tried to cover her up as much as possible, but her arm wasn't enough. At least I had the decency to give her some socks.
