After what is definitely not enough study of anatomy, I decided to attempt to start drawing or something since my character needs a reference. However, I'm hitting many a brick wall with this one. I've only got a rough outline of the body (and the belts because I suck) and I'm already failing really hard.

Redlines and such are heavily appreciated.

I am aware that this is extremely far from being even remotely correct. I'm just finding it hard to put my old bad habits behind me. >_>; I knew I shouldn't have tried to go without a reference.

Thanks. :D

UPDATE!

Improved the anatomy and added a bunch of detail. Hardly looks like my old "style" XD Starting to draft together the wings, will add the tail too, or what you can see of it behind the wings. How's it looking so far? :B (And yes, I'm too lazy to actually do the hands right now lol.)

What kind of a pose are you going for here? I'd love to redline, but balancing out the body's a little hard when I don't know what your goal is. @[email protected]

...I... really don't know. XD Just make her legs face straight. Try and make some sense of this. Now, excuse me while I go pound my head into a wall repeatedly. XD

I'm kinda having an off day as far as art goes, apparently, but hopefully that helps kinda!

I proooobably made her right arm too long so ignore that part. :D

You still win. :> The right arm is a little long. I think the end of the arm (or was it the hand? ._.) reaches the crotch when hanging at the side. That was a LOT of help. Thanks~!

Actually, since her shoulder is tilted that much, I think the arm length makes sense. *shrug*

The elbow reaches with the bottom of the ribcage, the wrist reaches with the crotch and the fingertips reach midthigh. If anything, it's a little short.



There's not much point in redlining this. I could, but I'd have to redraw the entire thing and you'd learn nothing from it. I can't point out the errors individually because every part of the body is flawed in some way. Start over with a reference, seriously; if you actually want to make this good at your skill level, you need some help. You don't know enough about anatomy, or more importantly, 3D form, to create a figure entirely out of your own head at this point.

Here are some, may be nude:

Alternatively, you could take a picture of yourself in the pose you want, or use a mirror.

I see the word "Nude" in like 2/3 of those links. XD Still, that's okay for artistic purposes. Thank you for the references. I really shouldn't be going off on my own at this point.

I think I'll go ahead and attempt to improve the sketch as much as I can without totally restarting. I'll approach the same sort of "pose" (whatever it was I meant to do.. haha) again after learning some more.

Thank you very much. :)

I would just scrap this sketch and start from scratch.

It's easy to miss the big picture if you're constantly zooming in on separate mistakes. In the end, trying to preserve a sketch that's still really in a rudimentary stage limits your own learning.

I think you're right. It just irks me how I ended up finishing up the details and now I have to restart. xD Well, I knew from the beginning that learning wouldn't be easy, so I'll just put on my big girl panties and stop being lazy.

It would help a lot if you didn't add any real detail until you get the anatomy and positioning correct. Otherwise, you're just going to keep frustrating yourself over and over again.
