  • Not bad! I'll give you some tips I learned in art school.
    -try not to outline things that you want to look realistic. Use the light and shadows to show the edges of the figure. It'll give the drawing more depth also.
    -remember that the shadow cast by the figure is also part of it. Drawing the shadow gives it ground so it doesn't look like its just floating on the page.
    -This is a phrase forever etched into my brain by my drawing instructor "Darker darks! lighter lights!!"
