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.

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.

Oh great! I love the colored papers(you probably already figured that out though) I bought a new color at the art store today, it's a dark maroon so I'll see if I can produce something good from that.

wow...this is a nice contrast to the usual beautifully chisled male nudes you do. this is very soft, even her pose is ultra-feminine. another great job, rita. and doesn't mjranum have great stock to choose from? :nod:

it's wonderful stock, I could draw forever with them. This did take some getting used, drawing the female that is. Alot easier though, the musculature is so simple! lol

Exceptional contrast of light and shade as well as the definition of musculature. A wonderful piece.

Thank you, I tried a blending stump in the light areas to smooth it out. Seemed to work better although I need more practice I'm not used to blending just yet.

You're welcome, Rita. I only make comments on artists and their creations that inspire me to try and do better with my drawing/sculpting. Most of your drawings have that affect on me...Thank you so much for sharing your talents/creations with us!

I'm really glad to help if I can, that is part the reason I have my work up for download of a large file size so that way people can see what I do by each pencil stroke.
