[WIP] A Woman?? [Nudity >.>]

on: September 15, 2010, 12:25:52 am


Hi all, this here image started out as pair of legs I was going to use to test out different skin tones (something I need practice with), however as I progressed I started to like what I was seeing more and more. Reason being, is because Im usually terrible at drawing the opposite sex (spend too much time drawing male characters), they often end up looking like men in drag...

At the moment its just a small piece of line art with not much going on, but in my free time I'll be updating it and posting updates as I go along (unless it begins to suck and/or I get bored with it.. :P) At the moment I'm thinking I would like her to be wearing a workers uniform, but a "sexy" one.. perhaps an ultra mini-skirt, a skimpy luminous jacket and a large wrench in her left hand, amongst other accesories I have in mind.

Would like opinions and suggestions on improving the line art at this stage if you don't mind :)

Thanks

PS: I wont be going to pornagraphic with this, softcore at most.. Im usually not this perverted o.o

Figure drawing with pixels is tough.  Kudos for challenging yourself with this. particularly for the tricky pose.

Crits:
I think the thighs are too long.  The shorter lower leg might be due to foreshortening, but the thighs are still too long when compared with the torso.

The upper arms are also too long.  Elbows are usually around the bottom of the ribcage when the arms are vertical.

I think the ribcage is too short.  Different people have ribcages of different length, but the large vertical distance from collar to nipple line suggests a longer distance nipple line to ribs, particularly since we can see the side of the ribs.

I think the shoulder isn't quite round enough.

Here's an edit.  I'm not sure if it helps.



I lost quite a bit of the torso twist.  I couldn't figure out how the hip/rump would look so I cheated with a simple curve.  I think I'd want to study some dancers walking along to get the hip joint correct.  The thicker ribs and shoulders make this figure a more average or athletic shape rather than the long slender shape you started with, and that might not be what you want.  Guidelines left in

Edit: Maybe my edit shortened the thighs a pixel or two too much, but I still think the original is too long.

Thanks for the great crits :D

Past hour or so ive been struggling to get it too look right based on your edit, plus some of what a friend of mine said. At first I shortened the legs but it looked kinda strange, now I'm undecided on which looks best.. Which brings me to my next update :)



Not much has changed, but heres what I have done:
- Head! obviously, though not sure how well that works :P
- Upper body pose has changed slightly, it kinda just happened while I was following the edit.
- Front leg moved over to the left one pixel
- More ample buttocks, though im undecided on whether or not its too big..
- etc etc..

As you can see, I'm pretty much at a loss and need some more guidance :P Ill go over your edit again, see if I missed anything important.

Thanks again, and to those future posters :)

PS: Im now thinking air stewardess ;)

I don't think there's much left to do besides the addition of color, CodeCriminal. :P
I prefer the left version, personally. The torso's silhouette was also closer in the original picture, hourglass shape is obscured by pretty small rotations.

I made an edit, but it was more therapeutic doodling for me than to illustrate any form of point. It's worth noting that the pelvic bone, and thus most women's hips jut out at slightly higher point, but there's a lot of variety (especially in huskier ladies ;)).  Both arms appear to be too long; wrist is at about the same level as the pubis  with good posture. The forearm of her right (our left) arm is too short compared to the upper arm in my edit... They should be about the same length if I'm not mistaken, and some of the upper arm's length is hidden by our shoulder.
Oh yes naked women are beautiful
But I like shrimps more haha ;)
