the only critique in can give is that her left hand is to big and that her had/hair is to small. the rest looks great
about the points i gave on vision and originality just one because it base work is not yours but the technique is great. i like how you shaded everything. working with is the next step i think but using stocks for training is ok i think.

Yeah, this isn't my favorite of the drawings I've done. I feel like the dark shading is too dark or something, it's hard to decide what it is that bothers me about it exactly buy yeah I did like the pose I thought it was interesting.

oh wow that is an excellent pick, I may have to draw it too sometime. Keep drawing! Your work has a nice sculptural value to it.

wow...thank you rita, coming from you, that's a huge compliment!!! :hug: and i would love to see your take on that same piece :-)

I can see that you think of the form as a 3 dimensional object so I think you should keep drawing more nudes. Maybe even try a toned paper? I find it to be a lot less work than creating a tone on white paper but thats just me.

I'm so unsure of what to draw next LOL! I have all of these great poses lined up to draw from.

i definitely plan on doing more nudes, both male and female. i think they make beautiful artwork. i actually bought some mi teintes paper...some light blue, black and two shades of brown, so i'll be tryin it soon. thank you, i appreciate your advice rita. you know you're gonna pick and draw a winner :nod:
