It says: Just so you know: I like to paint and draw too.

Dunno what to call it yet. Daria said it reminds her of mangoes. Acrylic, crayon, permanent marker & pencil on parcel wrapping paper.

What do y'all think? Criticism welcome.

I like it smile.gif

To improve your technique, one of the things I was always told while I was doing life drawing was to make sure that there was some context for my figures, such as the chair they are on or the wall behind. It really helps bring the figure and shading out.

Overall it's very good, you've got a good sense of proportion, which is one of the hardest things to develop.

Thanks. I think the sense of proportion comes from all the murals I've sketched onto walls from a4 paper and that. Practice, basically. I must admit, one of the favorite sketches I saw someone do of me was with the chair and kimono draped over the chair... really made it, more interesting, I guess. Yeah, contextualised it. Wasn't just me sitting around in the nod, but y'know on a chair choosing not to have me kimono on. I want to do some more nudes, but I think I will try and do a model/ artist exchange thing with another model as I kept having to move to draw and then back to the pose. which kinda ended up changing the hand much. I was actually looking at it and thinking that it wouldn't detract too much to have some back ground... but I was stuck as to tthe colour scheme. Maybe I could just outine it in marker pen? Hrmm.

By the way, I wrote what I wrote because it's the first painting I've done since I started life modeling, and I was really inspired to try the nude form. It's actually my first nude.
