I love the way you draw bodies, both female and male. Think you could do a step-by-step of your process? They look so nice!
Sure Ill try my best! First I start off with a circle for the head, and some lines to decide where the direction of the face, and body is going to be turned. I like to draw girls a lot in that popped him and chest out position a lot…but for the body i use a curved line like the face, to show how the body will curve. Next I make a box for the chest, if she is facing a certain direction the box will has a sort of perspective on it, and be tilting in the direction her chest will face. I also draw a triangle for what I call the “underwear line” to show where the hips and direction of her pelvis. You can see some faint circles at the corners, thats where her hips will be, also circles at the top is for shoulders. Think circles and curves.
Next, when I draw the arms, I make sure the elbows are on the same plane, you don’t want them to be too far off or her arms will look wonky. Then I go ahead and fill in the curves and the jet of her hips. For the legs, try to think of full cylinders. For the guys its sort of the same but instead think of boxes.
I hope this helps somewhat;;;;;; Im terrible at explaining.

Pupils as the shape of eyebrows, mouth are vectors of emotions. This can be very convenient to bring a bit of subtlety and increase non-verbal emotions of your characters.
The pupil has three states: idle, dilated (Mydriasis) or contracted (Myosis). It spends its time…

Photo of a fight in the Ukranian Parliament or Renaissance painting?
Slap them all in togas instead of suits and it would perfect
It also follows a pyramidal composition!
However, I would argue that this picture is more Baroque than Renaissance. Notable features of Baroque art are:
- Images are direct, obvious, and dramatic.
- Tries to draw the viewer in to participate in the scene.
- Depictions feel physically and psychologically real. Emotionally intense.
- Extravagant settings and ornamentation.
- Dramatic use of color.
- Dramatic contrasts between light and dark, light and shadow.
- As opposed to Renaissance art with its clearly defined planes, with each figure placed in isolation from each other, Baroque art has continuous overlapping of figures and elements.
- Common themes: grandiose visions, ecstasies and conversions, martyrdom and death, intense light, intense psychological moments.
In the baroque, artists strove to evoke aesthetic responses. Now I’m not talking about aesthetic as in “oh thats pretty” I’m talking about aesthetic like that punch in the gut reaction you get to something.
One of the ways this was done was through the depiction of intense emotion which we see in this photograph. compare to Bernini
The picture also displays a wonderful use of chiaroscuro (an effect of contrasted light and shadow created by light falling unevenly or from a particular direction on something) a style used extensively by Caravaggio and other Baroque artists.
