I think I should have added a nudity warning on the topic of the thread Sorry can you help moderators??? I apologize for anyone I offended, I really did not take into consideration that my newbie doodles should have that warning:crazy::shy:

Hmm, since you are doing anatomical studies I wonder what level of realism you are going for... Right now you seem to have some cool cartoon forms and proportions ;), which is cool. BUt if you are going for realism you might want to consider the softness of human forms.. There aren't really any sharp angles.
Cheers and keep up the good work :)!

Hello Everyone :D here is the new updates , actually I am following a really talented member here AGONIST and I am trying to learn from his human anatomy thread so here is what I have got so far. The plan is to do as much of these as I can so familiarize myself with the lines of the human body :hmm: hopefully my hand learns fast:P
hulahuga:. Thanks:D for the comments, and actually I do not know what real style I m going for but I m learning this to go into sculpting so I guess the answer should be real human figures and I agree about the rough sharp edges will try to minimize that in future studies ( if you call what I do is anatomy study thanks:) I am really flattered)
M_Cederstrom:. Thanks:D I heard that before so I ll try really hard to concentrate more maybe look at silhouettes first then inner lines and forms

Proportions are really important before you go on to the details, think of that.

Ohhh I see so I should work on forms and the volumes of muscles before I actually look at references of their constitution and lines?? Is that what you mean Hulahuga??? so far I just google some pictures of anatomy and draw it in photoshop with a tablet while looking at the picture next to my drawing. So I d like to know if i m doing things the right way or not too thanks for the support and time to answer my questions:D

There are probably a LOT of different theories out there, but I'd say that forms are more important that doing the lines of the muscles correctly, that comes with the forms.

i agree with hulahuga.

you need to develop a way of loosening your strokes up and defining form with deliberate, positive marks - everything so far seems nervous.
a tablet does not encourage this sort of thing so I suggest using pencils or charcoal and paper.
if you must work digitally, get a copy of artrage and use that for your sketching (its free) - it's much more immediate than photoshop
google up some examples of fashion illustration and automotive design - the better designers can conjure up a form with nothing more than a few lines

updates :D I m trying to improve and plan ahead my strokes rather than stroking and stressing on the right ones:P but guys to be honest I have been tracing (only those though the rest i submitted before are drawing while looking at reference):( but I think its a way to learn and my hand are getting in smoother longer strokes now, if anyone think its a bad idea please advice :)

Guys I m losing my mind with face proportions I cant define the real ratio between everything where is halfway from where and three thirds :( :(:( its so confusing I ve read so far 3 different books and they r all confusing as the text is describing totally different things from the figures :S :S :S anyway here is my first try doing things with ratios. And the really confusing part is I dont know where to put my first landmarks is it the eyes the nose the mouth where to start and to end is very ambiguous Please advise

Looks better with the longer strokes... But you don't have to do long strokes to make it look good :P. Just don't make it to busy. Looking good now :).
Left pic seems pretty correct...
At 1/2 pupils. 1/2 between eyes and top of the head lies the chakra.
1/2 between the chin and eyes lies the tip of the nose
1/2 between tip of nose and chin lies the mouth.
The corner of the mouth should lie underneath each pupil...
This is what I've gathered as basic proportions..

If your power is line, use da line to get da form. (Personal opinion)
Keep da work up, use your eyes, use ref, be critical, and you will only grow up!

on the side pic the ear is to are form the eye and the jaw is too long. :D keep it up.

Nice start - there isn't easy especially to fix the body proportiones. But you're on a good way :)
