    Day 15: A bit more refinement of the lower torso and legs of the grisaille. Next step is to refine “the whole” further and make sure the gesture is clear.

    Day 18 and 19: Took a break from the digital painting work to do a couple of gesture and anatomy studies. Line quality and value control with sketching in Procreate continues to be a work in progress.

    Hello Bird, some notes.

    Overall I really like this! The lighting/shade is beautiful, proportions, gesture/mood all read! Love the volumes for the legs too!

    A) Great hatching! Just marking those 2 dark lines because they stand. Keep your strokes/values even throughout.

    B) If employing Cast Shadows, always make sure they FOLLOW along the form they are on. You’re constantly reinforcing the shapes and their directions. Not sure of your reference, but remember to take liberty in never copying it exactly. Look up Ruben’s drawing of ‘ Study of Abraham and Melchizedek’ and study the cast shadow on the thigh.

    C) Core Shadows could be toned down just a bit as they ‘jump out’ too much.

    D) Avoid Tangents. Also, tone down the value here too! It could start off ‘dark’ then fade away as it goes back.

    Days 25, 26 and 27: Have been experimenting with a bunch of different styles of gesture (Sheldon, Karl Gnass, Lane Brown) as a bit of a change of pace.

    Also, did a quick figure study today in Procreate to try out a couple of different brushes and new techniques.

    Days 28, 29 and 30. More quick sketch work (playing around with the core and cast shadows, limited values, and flat tone) and some additional progress rendering the Yoni anatomy study.

    Day 33: Tonal quick sketch (15 mins) drawalong from the Russian figure drawing class. Need to be a lot smarter about brush selection in digital for this kind of effect.
