Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Bayushi Kachiko WIP (some light Nudity)

First sketch of Kachiko (well not actually the first, I wentthrough several different poses and gesture drawings) is meant to look at the overall pose. Pencil work is obviously going to be quite rough because it's more like thinking on paper than proper drawing. I think this looks more like Catwoman than Kachiko at the moment. I'm looking to slim down the figure a little at the moment to make it more petite or maybe size up the head some. I'm going for sassy but commanding. Obviously haven't worked out hair or clothes yet

C&C appreciated.



EDIT: Also, my experience drawing breasts without a model is a little lacking. I'd like to hear from the ladies as to whether or not they seem okay.

Ok, I'm not much help with nudity, however it looks ok to me, nice side to side spread and good weight on them. However since you are wanting Kachiko I'm thinking smaller and more trim, that is the physical type right?

Re: Bayushi Kachiko WIP (some light Nudity)

The breasts are good though the rib cage seems a little bulky, it may be the stance she's in.

Nice sense of movement throughout the sketches.

Looking forward to seeing more.

Re: Bayushi Kachiko WIP (some light Nudity)

Agree wholeheartedly that the rib cage is too thick. Even a male would have less. Rest of it looks fine

Re: Bayushi Kachiko WIP (some light Nudity)

Updates!

Second Sketch: Thinned down the torso but now the figure is way tall. You can see, though that I have some guides for the next drawing as to wher eI want to move different pieces.


Third Sketch(es): Some hand studies to figure out posing from an otherwise very awkward set of hands. The second one is actually stolen hands from daVinci's Lady with an Ermine.



Fourth Sketches: Working more on posing and some 3-D...ness. Happier with the height and width of the figure and the openness of the pose but once I got the shadows in I realized I didn't like the part where the fan is almost kissing the leg, the length of the necklace, or the flatness of the arm. I would like to see more depth to her right/ viewer's left arm. Also, probably going to forego the leg below the knee because it presents weird perspectiv eissues I don't want ot deal with on a personal piece.



Next round: The first of these two came along pretty fast, but the second had about a three week delay as I worked on other pieces and dadding. We're working more on the clothing now since most of the pose seems to be pretty stable. The lots of robes significantly cuts down of the efficacy of a sexy pose but there's still some work to do there,I think. Also, you can see on the first one that I haven't done anything about the arm with the fan yet. Also, Bayushi Kachiko is supposed to be super young and hot, right? You know what will totally make a person older looking and less sexy in a drawing? A Mask, and put up hair. Blech.



Current Sketch: I was focusing her emostly on the face, because it turns out that it's SUPER HARD to draw an Asian face without making it totally racist. I still don't think I've pulled it off completely, here, but there are probably a few tweaks I could make to help. The nose in particular was a super challenge that I had to draw again, and Again, and AGAIN! The angle for it is also kind of weird. Also on this latest sketch I feel her right/ viewer's left eye is kinda droopy on the outside of the face, and she doesn't look evil enough. She looks like she's kind of helping you up whereas I'm trying more for a temptation into her scorpion's den kind of feel.


Also, need ot layer up some of the robes in the last drawing. C&C, questions, and comments welcome.

Re: Bayushi Kachiko WIP (some light Nudity)

Wow, you are really getting into this. I just tend to sketch hands and feet and erase til they look right. Nice work, so far.

Re: Bayushi Kachiko WIP (some light Nudity)

I normally would (and there has been plenty of sketching and erasing.) However, in this instance I also want to paint a final piece and too much erasing on watercolor paper can screw it up, so designing comes before final layout.

Ah. I don't do watercolors any more (my loss, I know) so I am used to sturdier paper like Strathmore Bristol board. Or canvas. Or birch.

Re: Bayushi Kachiko WIP (some light Nudity)

You did pick a very challenging pose for her but bravo to you for sticking to it.

I think it's her mouth that's giving her a friendlier look. It has a bit of a smile to it that makes her seem friendly. I would show just the tiniest slice of white over her iris, that would make a change of expression.
