Gesture Class 469-X

Done as part of a session of 30min divided in groups of 30s, 60s, 2x5min and 1x10min sketches.

My goal is to better understand anatomy.

I have no idea what happened today. Proportions were off, lines are stiff, I had no understanding of how everything connected. I tried to add more constructive lines after establishing the most descriptive lines to understand how the body worked, but the longer poses fell apart, more so than usual I think.
I am trying to simplify linework, sacrifice a bit of fluidity for the sake of anatomy, and then add more fluid lines again over the constructive forms, which I failed to make here.


On a contrary way of what you say i think those are really fluid, go ahead and have no fear of distorting a bit or a lot, those are pretty regocnizable as bodies and their poses! You're going really well!


Those look pretty perfect to me. You are where I'd like to be!!

Every day is different. It's okay to have an off day - in fact, sometimes it indicates that your thoughts are in the process of shifting, which can mean progress/breakthroughs on the horizon. :)

Is part of your practice not lifting your pencil from the paper?
