    did it take that long? I know it's dark but I'm wondering if my monitor's brightness is too high and it's causing me to detail stuff out at a really low point. Looking at it on my side monitor (which is wonky in the first place) makes it so dark you can't see where the mask ends and the skin around the eye begins, which makes me a little worried about the comparative brightness of my main.

    I need to calibrate the monitors or find proper driver profiles or something

    Took me a second watch and 5-10 seconds to figure out.

    at the moment I'd take the b/w, the color seems oddly vivid and flattened at the moment. Keep working in color for now and decide later, I say. Right now your priority should probably be that shoulder, it seems very angular and thin

    seriously though the lighting on the shirt is very flat. most of your image is just a lot of brush strokes with very little value change.

    This is one of my biggest problems too. It often happens that I drag the photosop window to the second monitor and then.."oh no that looks wierd as hell". So I'm usually trying to find some middle point between "it looks ok on the main monitor" and "it looks ok on the side monitor". Yeah, I know i'm stupid.

    Also, some new drawings I did.

    And some quick scientist girl.

    I still really suck at faces :(

    Jesus that's amazing, though the sun looks out of place and there's a weird copy paste feel in the lower right corner of the city. Do more stuff like this please. I don't know why you make most of your other stuff look muddy
    Because I'm still figuring out colours haha

    and blurry most of the time.
    Because I like loose paintings, like these ones by Mhugo:

    well they're still a lot more defined than yours.

    Edited:

    the first one doesn't seem blurry at all.

    Edited:

    there's a huge difference between blurry and loose actually. he knows exactly what to define on the first one. i don't like the second one very much. i think the city looks bad and a lot of the focus goes into it.

    I think that despite the paintings being loose, the natural texture of the paint gives it a feeling of being more refined. Maybe finding a way to texturize a bit (without just slapping a paper/grunge overlay on top) would be beneficial.

    If you forgo planning entirely and draw the top buildings first the rest flows very intuitively.

    Never done it myself, but I would have put a vanishing point in the center of the top border, another one about center bottom, drawn perspective lines towards the center of the page and then curved the lines together, extrapolating the curves in the same way you might extrapolate the curve of a perspective cylinder-cap or wheel

    Can someone post that anatomy study website where you can put in gender, nudity/clothed, and how long, etc etc?

    I have a friend that wants to improve her anatomy and needs a good website. I thought I had it in my favorites but it's not there!

    I'm kind of pissed that I lost the site, it's an EXCELLENT quick study website. It procedurally generates studies for you based on the amount of time you want to spend on each study and how long you want to do studies in general.

    As a rule of thumb it's not a great idea to do studies from 3D models. They can't approximate a real body very well at all.

    @Mako Well you're entitled to your opinion but I think it's great for looking at how the muscles flow and all that. To understand anatomy, not just look at the shell. I bet you've looked at anatomy drawings for reference at some point. They're a lot worse than 3d representations imo. But yeah for studies of the human exterior form there's nothing better than the real thing ofcourse.

    Decided to fix someones CNC plasma cam and cut out a couple sheets of stuff then i went and cut out this
    it got this far before the machine broke

    rest had to be cut out by hand with a hand-held plasma cutter

    still have yet to grind it down to remove the heat discoloration and then paint it.

    maybe i will post the other metal stuffs i make

    The lower part of the guy is fine, but the face is too messy and unfinished. The head with the helmet is a selling point in the drawing, it needs to be better finished. Now the top and bottom halves look like they're from different images.

    Firstly posemanics use especially inadequate models, we stopped recommending the site like three threads ago.

    Secondly looking at the "shell" is exactly what you get with a 3d model. The modeler sure as fuck didn't model each muscle and layer, just the shapes with a texture around them. They're guaranteed not to be perfectly accurate, and for the most part they're only vaguely alright (See: the two sites you posted)

    I wouldn't call it an opinion even, it's just how it goes

    Thanks for those links. I tried posemaniacs once and I struggled to gain anything from it but I like the look of pixelovely and may get a new blank pad today and try and get back into drawing.

    Well posemaniacs pretty much has the shell with painted muscles on top and wasn't a good example for my point about 3D muscles but there sure are 3D models with all or most of the muscles modelled. I think zygotebody gives a lot better impression of how the bigger muscles flow than drawings do because you can rotate around the thing. If not better at least it adds to the understanding in my opinion. This one should be detailed enough if zygotebody doesn't satisfy. Check the video in the 7th post.

    My first stencils I made, gonna print these out, cut out black parts and spray somewhere, but first will add some scenario to scene, I didn't use the typical: Paste into photoshop, change levels and done. I took original images, and by looking at them for few mins, broke them up into few parts and redrawn using basic shapes in photoshop, so really made from scratch.
