Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Drawing Group 1/23/12

I x-posted this in watercolor forum also... I spent a little under an hour I think in total. I had to completely erase my first drawing of the model (this cheap watercolor paper was all I had to paint on). I am trying to force myself to do more watercolor at the drawing group... I didn't really love the pose, but I stayed where I was anyway (the group was a little more crowded than normal, which is great). I'm not sure about it, but would love any input from you figure experts - especially since I think we're doing the same pose tonight, with clothes. Thanks for looking.

The head may be out of proportion to the body a bit. The rest looks good. I'm guessing you'll ground the bent knee as it looks like it and the arm are supportng the weight.

There is something about the head that is off but it looks like an hour well spent!

Without getting too in depth, I grabbed a picture off google images by an artist named Jenny Stout. It shows how to simplify the hands into a shape for the palm, then a line through the larger knuckles, then come in with some lines along the length of the fingers. Like the hand on the top right.

In general try to imagine the skeletal structure as you assemble the figure. Some how the spine feels disconnected as you get to the neck compared to the chest pelvis area.

Here a different artist Sean Taylor draws the spine in his initial gesture.


Good Luck!
