Subject title: Geryes' pinup & Isometric Sketchbook - NSFW ish

That is one heck of a bodacious bountiful booty. :D

All your girls look great. As other's have said you have some great construction. Have you though about getting into more detailed anatomy? The bumps and ridges of the muscles underneath the skin. I get the impression that that would be the next level up for you as figure drawing goes. (Take suggestion with pinch of salt - I might not know what I'm talking about - just a feeling.)
What are you doing? Stop browsing the forum and get drawing.

Just visit my sketchbook first:

Your colors have improved for sure :)
Keep on posting more girls!
I like to draw girls. If you like girls too, you should check my Sketchbook ^^
There's stuff on my Twitter and Instagram too.
I do streams sometimes, mostly weekends on my Picarto channel.

Thanks Peteman! I do want to get into more refined anatomy but I want to be careful not to make the figures to muscly unless that what I want for the character. I have a pretty basic understanding of anatomy and am always trying to learn more. Any videos on the subject you can recommend?

True, shading and color do quite a bit :), and is tricky until I accidentally get it right :P. Thanks for the comment brother :D.

Hmm, well Sycra has some anatomy videos, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ydGSNm ... 7A76C77120 and of there's Proko's anatomy series https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDgyQjN ... QmZJH4__Zv, but as a person who posts on the forum of an art YouTuber you probably already had an idea that these existed.

Thanks Pete! yea i've sen a few of these, but can't hurt to watch them again. Thanks for the links :).

Started a new job last week so not much time for drawing. But I was working on an infographic today and making a lot of icons for their software. The infographic is a rough sketch but i'm liking it so far, ..........even though it's about kids getting cancer :/.

As for figure drawings, i find myself not really getting legs still. guess i should brush up on leg anatomy. Anyone know of a good video for legs both bent and extended?

Couple of more figure doodles.

Lol that's my too. Wake up. Eat. Go to work.Come back. Shower. Eat. Draw. Post on forum. Sleep. Repeat.

Good form as usual, but you've got some anatomy errors.

I think there's something wrong to with Yvette's arm/shoulder area. Seems to too big. But I'm not sure I would be able to explain how to fix it exactly.

I think I can explain, however, what's wrong with how you've done Bridget's calf muscles. I found some reference images

Spoiler: show
Image

Image


Two things. The two muscles that stick out at the back of your lower leg go around to roughly half the side plane of the legs. You've got Bridget's only on the back planes, so you need to bring them further forwarward and round.

Secondly, The lines you've used to even though it's a paler line than the lines you've used for the major linework, it's still a sold line. It kinda gives the impression someone has drawn over her leg rather than being the muscles underneath.I think it would be better if you used a brush with density set to pen pressure. (assuming your're not using a mouse.) Going from darker to lighter to no line at all, starting at where the shadows are deepest.

Also a completely solid line would only really be appropriate with people have muscles that stick out like their made of stone. In normal, more squishy, people broken lines better represent the the slight dips and valleys of the skin over the muscles.

As usual, that said. I'm still an amateur. take my advice with a pinch of salt.

Keep up the hard work. :D

Thanks Peteman! This helps a lot. Yea i have quite a bit of trouble with legs in general and I think I have to go through the leg anatomy thoroughly. I'll also take the advice about hard lines for muscles as well. I think those areas would be better with hatching or something.

Some figure doodles during my break at work using straight pen. I draw pretty much only in digital so this was a nice challenge for me. I feel like in general that i'v improved with the way I draw with my whole arm instead of just the wrist. I think I should do more of these with reference images to really solidify my line work. It's not where I want it to be yet but I think i'm on my way.

You're killing it with the traditional drawings Geryes! It's nice to see you do a bit of that. ^^
Just one thing is that the hands seem a bit tiny. :)

Thanks Steeliebob! Reading that makes me realize i'm not crazy when i think "Am....am i... actually getting a little better?". But yea, i noticed the hands thing too when i looked at them on my phone later. I'll keep it in my in my sketchbook.

Couple of digital doodles for the night. I finally got a nintendo switch and it's either legend of zelda or drawing each night. Luckily I play it on my morning commute :P.

but some of the feet looks flat

here's an amazing service with quick references with poses and particular parts with photo references:
