Gestures 31Jan19

Done as part of a practice session with poses of 2 minutes in length.

My current goal is: Improve at correctly capturing the overall proportions of the human form


I can't tell if the number of lines you use is a deliberate stylistic choice or a lack of confidence.
You have good control of proportion, so my challenge to you would be lean one way or the other.

There is a bit of a wire contour feel to your image, but the lines are almost too distracting.

So I would challenge you to pursue one direction or the other. Lean into the lines and make them ore meaningful. Or can you reduce the lines?

A personal challenge I set for myself was to complete a gesture in 10 lines or less. And it took me almost a year to be able to do it with any consistency. It was a great challenge because it made me really pause and go slower. Even though I laid down fewer lines, I really had to think about every single one of them.

That is my critical advice. Become more deliberate. Reduce or increase the lines. Make the choice on purpose.
