Nice. I also noticed the curvature of the shoulders is really loose (just like it should be) did you have a model? or did you use a mannequin or are you just naturally good with the anatomy? I know when I draw the thing that's the hardest for me is the anatomy so I must praise your amazing shoulders and proportional hands.
Oh, wow, thanks so much for your kind words! I don't get comments like that too often.
I guess it's just...a lot of practice. I've been drawing anatomy for a long time and I was able to develop a few techniques. I did use a reference for his suit, but I always draw the body before I draw the clothes. (Hands are a little tough for me, though, when they're in complex positions; I usually have a friend model for me or use my own hand. But if the hands are just hanging down, like they are here, then it's just a matter of using simple shapes and guidelines to even it all out. )
It's often the same for me. I usually draw the person's outline first and then I draw the clothes on top. I've found that works well. Hands really are difficult. I despise them. No problem. I appreciate detailed reviews so usually I give them.
Oh, you're so right, hands are impossible. .__. I've been trying to develop different techniques in drawing them better, but it's really tough (I probably just need to understand their shape and anatomy more... :/ ). I think just using references will work out for me, though...
