Leg Study Part 2

Finished up the second part of my leg anatomy study, based on a fitness model and sampled from ballerinas~

Was playing around with Lighting in ZBrush - I'm happier with the edge and shadow quality but its possible it came out a bit dark, future renders will need more lighting or a less matching background.

Progressing on Leg Study

Progressing on the leg study - first up the "Arnold" BodyBuilder pose, after I make sure all the muscles are in the right place I'll bulk 'em up and pose the legs/lower half.

I also found some female fitness models to use as reference after the Arnolds.
The intention is to lop off the targeted body part and make it look like a broken statue, so I'll need to rough that out at the waist..and decide what to do about underwear or Ken-doll features...

Off to Life Drawing!

Figure Drawing Class Part 2

More updates from Figure Drawing class -- January 27th work

Still slow, but trying to break out of my usual way of drawing and more to the instructor's style~

Also tried to draw some furry little sausages that lay around my couch:

Starting Figure Drawing classes

Actually started on January 20th but blogging isn't coming naturally yet...
So! January 20th:

Instructor points out that I outline too often, and draw too slowly --some things I'll be working on. She also has noted that I, and others, have illustrator tendencies that we need to "unlearn". Should be an interesting class.
