Female pose study #3

By ValereyArts
1K Favourites
I received a very rude note from someone a while back about these pose studies that I upload and decided to answer that person's issues here instead of replying to their private note. First of all, I never claimed to be an anatomy expert (I mentioned that in the very first pose study I uploaded). I am aware that there may be some mistakes made every now and then. I am also in the process of learning and practising figure drawings.

These studies are as much for me and anyone who may find them useful in any way. I draw the figures in this style because this is how I understand the figure and I found this to be the most comfortable method for me whether it may be odd or unorthodox. I am not forcing others to draw figures this way or in any way implying that my way is the correct way. 

If these pose studies offend anyone in any way then I'm sure there are lots of other great pose references here in DA that are created by artists who have a much better background in anatomy drawing.

I apologise for that slightly lengthy rant. As for anyone who finds these pose studies remotely useful, then I am very glad and extremely grateful that you do so.

  • Feel free to use the poses as references (no need to ask for permission)
  • If you use it, please link back to my DA or this sketch

Thanks :D (Big Grin)

There is no right way to art. In the first place, these are your studies. 
It's a shame that somebody felt the need to go out of their way to criticize you (in a rude manner) rather than move on or offer encouragement.
Personally, I like the way you do your studies ^^ Keep up the lovely work!
