Ancient Greek frisbee disc thrower

The drawing I attempted in the British Museum on Sunday. I didn't get as much done as I had hoped, I was far too busy catching up with good friends who came to join and who I haven't seen in *ages*, as well as meeting new people who came for the first time to my sketch invitation. :)

Thank you so much for everyone who joined in, I had such a lovely day - even though we spent a lot of it just sitting on the museum floor and talking about art related topics and showing each other's sketchbooks, haha! It was much needed, after all the stress of moving house I felt really drained of all energy & happiness. You guys rock! xx

u tried but u cast the shadows in the wrong direction. like in the figure or sculptur (*sp) well u never know where the shadow lies because its hard to see sometimes. well u got is whats called in the video game industry as artifical lighting i think.. natural lighting...or they call it a process of blume (gaussian) and some other stuff in real time. so if u go to the famous greek artist you will see they implemented a scene..still 3D. but also a theme as well..just like a video game. mythological. so it should not contain any non real elements. o yea before nothing was rendered. it was just a most lame ass art. thats why games suck nowadays.

this i learned myself..but ive studied anatomy a little and figures. but i also remember very little from school. and my teachers always said greeks relied on themes in artwork.

so i would since he his in a motion..the emphasis of the shadow would be behind him...a little on the ground. see how u missed the important of my art friends i think told me something like that.

maybe something like this...


combine the too parts u get


see how i got them to match laterally and horizontally kinda? but maybe your not interested in stuff like that =X but its all xyz. just like a statue.

ps, when i was a kid id draw greeks all day easy. they are all in sports/athletic poses =X so just go to an athlete and ask if you got close. what i did. don't believe that test one..they will draw "greek" very fast i promise u.
