Art critique and advice; beginner artists are welcome to post here; includes an oekaki. (NO FLAMES)
Artists, read before posting!
Before you post your art to ask for critique, please read these tutorials. They explain the basic principles of drawing and figure drawing. Most posts where these basics are missing will never get a response, as people are quite frankly sick and bored of explaining over and over that you would have to pretty much learn how to draw first, before you could improve.
So despite all the refs and adjustments I'm plowed through, the anatomy on this still looks -awful- to me. Especially the legs/crotch area, ugh. Any ideas on how to make this look less terrible/awkward?
Also it just seems really dead and flat to me, idk if anything can really be changed about that, but advice on livening up my work would be crazy appreciated.
