Hey, man.
Saw these over on the Drawing Board but didn't have time to comment then.

These look good. I'd guess you're having some trouble with hands (aren't we all?), they're pretty good but seem...

Well, I think that last one is great. Actually much better than the previous two. Could be because there is greater value which adds quite a bit of dimensionality that the previous two are somewhat...

Just a quick reply.

Jigokuen: lack of detail is usually due to lack of time. I find myself with less and less time to draw and tend to focus on the element that to me is the most important, the...

Hey, man.

Well, I can honestly say that you are showing some improvement from the time you started this thread and now. That's a very good sign.

I do agree that the faces still seem a bit flat....

Hey.

So, as I was glancing through the most recent page here the following thoughts occurred to me.

First of all, you have a nice sense of structure and detail, particularly in your faces. Even...

Well, there's a pretty good resemblance, but it's not spot-on. I think Ron Paul's cheeks are a little more hollow than you've drawn them. Not bad for an hour and a half though.

Ha ha. That would have been me. ;)

Anyway, nice sketches. The lines seem a little shakey. Or a little rough. Could just be your penciling style. I like smooth lines (even when they're wrong) which...

Right now the arms are too long. But that's partly due to the fact that the torso is too short.

It looks like you attached her hips at the bottom of her ribcage. Do you have a "proportion" chart...

Angus Young

Christmas present for a friend. I don't have time to do a full-fledged illustration, so he's just getting a sketch.

I didn't really nail the likeness but, what the hell. It's not too bad....

Well, the hand is way too small. Remember hands should usually be large enough to cover the face from chin to eyebrows.

Also the neck and head look out of proportion. Like the head is too small...

The torso is one of those fiddley areas of anatomy that can really bugger you if not done right. As johnway pointed out there are a lot of different ways to approach the problem.

Key points are as...

I like it.

Does seem like the woman's nose and mouth are kind of low. They seem to be okay distance-wise from each other, just too close to the chin.

Otherwise very nice.

Awwww. You're very cute! ;)

Nice job on the pic. I do agree the contrast could be improved a little. Just make the darkest parts a bit darker.

Lovely rendering.
