Re: Its my friend!! WIPs

Nice your still drawing , Im guessing this is charcoal , not sure as you dont mention what it is your using ... really push those values, have you tried working from Life , it really helps us to learn to see with much more scope ..

Oops! I forgot to mention the details.
You are right lovin art!!

The reference is from a picture.
The sketch is of charcoal and the size is 24 in x 28 in.
Thanks for giving the thought of starting with life..

One thing is, I really am slow in sketching. So I am unsure how far I can go in one Life session... My friend gave her photo so that I can practise still drawing.
If these comes out well, then I end up framing it and displaying in the walls of my home!!

I am planning to start life drawing with my own fingers and toes so that time is really not a constraint (An idea I got from WC friends!!).

Good WIP, Vinayak. A good pose and you are doing well with developing the personality of the model. With charcoal be aware of the darks. Too much contrast can sometimes flatten the forms and make the surfaces look flat. Just something to keep in the back of the mind.

Good job so far. I particularly like the highlights in her hair.

Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Re: Its my friend!! WIPs

Vinayak, your figure is great. My eyes, however, keep popping back and forth from her face to the background. You may want to make the lines in the background less crisp so that the focus is clearly on the beautifully drawn face. Just an idea.
