Dancing Lessons by SonicHearts Dancing Lessons by SonicHearts
I freakin' loved this picture when I was drawing it. LOVED. Why? The girl came out just as I wanted her to. That like... NEVER happens. And even better, its the best kind of anatomy sketch I had. I almost didn't want to finish it with the outfit. I know its not complete correct, but the best I have ever done. EVER. I even love the EYES. Everything! God I want to improve more and feel that I am improving.
Danny doesn't look right to me though >< He seems off model. Its the head and eyes and face, and I think I made him a tad too tall.
But I loves this. I just want to draw more and try to do even BETTER. I want to go to a class and actually LEARN this stuff instead of always teaching myself! I want to study this soooooo baaaaaaaaaad! And I mean everything! Especially anatomy right now. I want to be able to draw the human body almost perfectly and experiment with poses and how a simple head tilt could mean a whole possibility of emotions.
FEED ME KNOWLEDGE!!

I want you guys to give me your opinions on this. Mostly focused on the girl. criticize me. I really just want to learn right now and experiment. But my opinion alone isn't enough. Give me and words of wisdom you have! Tell me what things to improve. If I have the elbow in the wrong place. If the head is too round or the shoulders are off. Things like that. I know its kind of just a fun little sketch, but I am still proud of it and made me see that I am learning the more I try. I want to keep that up the best I can.

I've wanted it in a lot of my drawings actually['cept doodles cause like... they are meant to be bad ><]
Don't just tell me that its good. Tell me WHY you think its good. What do you like the most? What do you think would be best if fixed for the next time. Same if you don't like something. Things like that. If somethings wrong, give me advice how to improve. Hearing from other artist experience in their schooling or experiments is part of this learning process and I want to hear it all! Not just on this picture but on my others too! Though don't go looking to my old stuff to do this... I just mean new things. Cause going back wont help anyones eyes XP

And if it doesn't look like any real dance pose... I don't think it is XP Its not really suppose to be. So if it looks like she's dancing wrong... yes : D yes she is. Because she doesn't know how to dance XD Terrible rhythm.

I'm bouncy today[ajdhgsajkhf] and just want to draw... TEACH MEH WISE ONES 8DD *bounces away*

Also also also... The dates next to both of them is because I drew them both on different days. And felt like recording that with a date. I don't know why but I did. :B

>:( I don;t know what the HECK your going on about, you crazy person! I have no critique on this. Not really. And since you only seem to want something on the body, I'll give you this much.
I think her left hand looks funky. The right arm is either to skinny or her hand is too big. And I think her neck should be a bit smaller, cuz it's thick.
Other than that, you got it. Want to play hide and seek? I'll hide.

The hands bother me, they just seem off and that line you draw that goes inside the arm for the top of the elbow seems out of place..thats the only things I can see that needs critiquing

Loves it I think the only think wrong with Danny is the fact that he looks so stiff in comparisson to the girl who seems flowly and completly in motion. Maybe a few more tries and then you'll get the motion of Danny but the girl like you said is amazing

I love how you pulled off the girl's expression because she looks confused while she's trying to learn :D And I like Danny too but he is a little bit tall (not that I know exactly what he looks like ^^; XD) and his bangs should have some more spikes added and his hands should be bigger but other than that he looks great :) I'm sorry DX I'm not trying to criticize too much but as long as it helps you then I'll just make some suggestions ;P

XD I WANT Criticizim. I NEVER get it.
But Danny's hair... I suggest looking at an atual screen shot of him before you say he needs more bangs XD;;
Cause his design shows him only with three XP;; [I stared at soooo many pictures/movie fixing all of my draw from memory mistakes XP]
But yeah, I think he's a half head too tall in this XP baaaaaaaah lol

He's cool though! Keep up the great job on him :D

XP I think your right. Bah, idk.
for me the bangs come out wrong when I draw him with more so that may be why I thought it was less XD;;

Haha, well I agree, Danny's a bit too tall and his eyes are a bit off centered. I advise that you'd relax your arm and try to center your strain into your upper arm and relax your wrist. USE LIGHT STROKES!!! DO SOME ARM EXERCISES!! UPPER ARM EXERCISES I MEAN! Haha, this is helping out myself, too. Also! I usually put myself infront of my mirror and do the pose myself, adjusting things about my self and and stuff so I can see it better. If it's an action pose, like so one just spun around, then I spin around like 100 times, trying to look at how my hair flys. Haha! I hope that helps!! :aww: :hug: :meow:

It does help : D Thank you!
And its funny, but I rarely look in a mirror, because I always end up seeing things backwards XDD
I have a strange way of telling where an arm and such go XD;;

Haha, usually I like try to pretend to be the person and feel what's confortable and draw from other people's prospective (which is like the mirror) =P Haha, but that's cool too. I adjust easily so I barely have any problems ecept when I mess up drawing with my sharpie. ^^;

Critique wanted,
Critique granted: Well, I think you look really good. The proportion of your head to your body is sorta weird but the pose is really good. As for the only things I think are off is his waste, he's too skinny, and his hands are a bit small, other than that excellent 8D

Danny rocks...that's why I'm having his world, "Hollywood", in my KH fan fiction. Also like that he's teaching ur character to dance. It reminds me of when he was teaching Pudge.

I know exactly what you mean when you say
"I want to go to a class and actually LEARN this stuff instead of always teaching myself! I want to study this soooooo baaaaaaaaaad! And I mean everything! Especially anatomy right now. I want to be able to draw the human body almost perfectly and experiment with poses and how a simple head tilt could mean a whole possibility of emotions." I feel the same way.

But anway I really do think you did an amazing job on this the body of the girl is correct, but something you might want to consider is making the hands a little bigger. Think of it this way your hand is almost as big as your face so its pretty big. :nod:
I hope this helps because I'm learning too. :aww:
