+FEMALE BODY STUDY II+ by jinx-star +FEMALE BODY STUDY II+ by jinx-star
Another practice on female anatomy. Took in considerations from the previous one I did, I'm mindful of the belly button's placement and breasts this time. Overall I think this is fruitful study and I learned something. =)

nowadays, it's really rare to have an artist who is willing to draw body studies. It's time consuming among other things but this artist took the time to do some of them. I've already loved the male study and would use it to improve myself on that sharp field which is anatomy and I'm very grateful that the Artist published it. This would help a lot of people so thank you for that.

About the technique, what can I say? It's very neat, clear enough for people to be able to train their eyes and hands. There are many poses, obviously the most used of them all. Maybe some perspective would be good to add to the studies :) some risky angles like from below or from above. but that doesn't mean it's not already excellent :) thanks a lot again!

The Artist thought this was FAIR
296 out of 299 deviants thought this was fair.

First off, thumbs up for a body study that isn't an excuse to post a few naked men and women.

This is professionally and extremely well made. The lines are concise, the poses are clean, and nothing is muddled. I can clearly tell where one figure ends and another begins.

Some of these poses are refreshing for me to see; the two in the bottom right corner are interesting, and when I do see similar poses done in pieces they tend to be covered by something (clothes, piece of the setting, another figure's limb, etc.), or very blurry and not fleshed out. This provides a clear view to what the body would look like in those poses.

My only criticism is that the figures are not complete. It would be helpful to see the rest of the arms and legs, and how you would place the hands and feet. I'm interested to know. :)

As an artist who regularly uses figure studies, this is a very helpful and succinct study that does it's job well.

These are outstanding, again the subject's form is very well captured. The subtle shading of the ribs and abdominals is spot-on, as well as the collarbone and tendons in the neck. Great work! :clap:

I love when people draw human anatomy without making it something erotic. ;u;

Necavi Featured By Owner Apr 20, 2012
I submitted a critique, but one thing I forgot to mention on it is that these are not studies for beginning artists.

These are, despite how simple the poses look, very complex and contain so much depth to them. They also all require an extensive understanding of anatomy and how the body works before these can be fully utilized.

Anybody wanting to use these needs to take time beyond trying to copy a simple outline, because when they sit down to build on it they're not going to understand what they copied.

Btw, my favorite poses are the two on the bottom right, and the middle left. There's so much character and depth and motion in those figures, I love it.

Well, I guess after faving your entire folder of human anatomy study, I at least should say something. And that would be a huge thank you, for the time you took to make these, and for helping other deviants to get better with their skills. You rock. :D

this is beautiful and realistic :) especially the one in the left upper corner; i love the way you did her belly <3
cabaree Featured By Owner Dec 11, 2011
Your lines are quite beautiful, and I like the old-timey study feeling the editing gives.
(I think as far as the linework goes, my favorite spot is probably the shoulder area of the middle figure in the first row.. i think the thicker lines do quite a good job of showing overlapping forms there.

I think you could benefit from taking the time to really learn where muscles start and end now. You have a general grasp of where what kind of bulges go, but you leave quite many questions still hanging in the air. Where do the deltoids start and end? The latissimus dorsi, the trapezius? What are their shapes, and functions? The names are excess information, but knowing their placement, shape and function isn't. Especially in a study, the viewer should be able to look at the drawing and see everything the artist knows, even if it is an exaggeration of the reference material. It's a study, it's supposed to make you know your stuff better and more precise, having a pretty picture to show is just something extra.
And no, I don't mean to suggest you make the bodies superdefined and muscular... I'm female, not at all muscular - but I can look at my shoulder and instantly tell where the deltoid ends. With these drawings (okay, the deltoid is a bit of a bad example since it is more defined in the lower ones)... not so clear. It's about subtle things, and above else - the knowledge. Again, the last row feels much better than the first row in terms of the shoulder area, but still - it doesn't feel like the knowledge is quite pulling through.
If you aren't yet, you should try drawing these with an anatomy book (or two!) on the side so that you can check and study what it is exactly that you are drawing.
