s'pretty. :) Still love the way you draw the pelvis-to-hips transition. Though I think I've figured out how and why you do it, which works.

how and why? Please I'm curious to hear your revelation :)

It's the way you structure the pelvis, and push the muscles at the sides of the pelvis forward. Hmm...gonna have to draw what I mean. :0p

Try this: Comparison of Construction

...does that make any sense at all?

ah yeah. im probably doing it wrong but im kinda pudgy in the hips.

Oh, heavens no. I like something closer to your approach better. The way you draw the area seems more attractive. Your construction helps make the pelvis seem taller which "feels" better to me somehow.

I'd say you're closer than I am to "correct," anyways. The attachment point for that muscle is closer to where you put it...that is, if the anatomy books are to be believed. ;) Not to mention I base my construction more on muscle than on fat, which makes a huge difference.

Thanks for asking me to share with you, I love talking about art stuffs.

me too really! thank you for taking the time to draw out an example :)

And yeah I tend to base my figures on a more classical type so I focus more on where fat builds for the external appearance where theres an underlying muscle structure underneath it doesn't show through save for the "thinner" areas such as arms and calves.

Yah, agreed, and I've seen that in your work. It may also be like another person said tonight, you seem to focus more on depicting a visual representation instead of an actual structure--appearance wins over in-depth exacting anatomy.

And it does win, your figures are always attractively constructed(and I don't mean just commercially). :) I'd imagine working with fat placement and body "type" is easier than thinking through placement of muscle and bone every time, too...not to say that you lack in such knowledge, of course.
