Gesture Class 514

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

I am trying to better understand human anatomy, so I can render imagined poses.

Lately, I have realized that I was focusing so much on recreating the forms of each figures that I forgot to pay attention to how muscles worked in relation to the poses.
I am also still working on properly building longer poses by drawing the forms underneath. It's a shame that I occasionally fail to entirely fit some figures on the page... I shouldn't be so neglectful.


Great to be thinking about the muscles. Try laying out a line of action for the whole body and construction lines for the limbs before you start detailing your drawing, that way hopefully you can make sure the figure fits entirely on the page.

I really like the flow of your 30 second sketches!
