5 min gesture

by Aidanconklin, April 3rd 2020 © 2020 Aidanconklin

Done as part of a 30 minute class.

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


Greast job of capturing the action! Pacement of the figure and cropping of the arm create interesting and dynamic use of negative space.

Try varying the weight of your strokes and accentuate the bone structure of the knee in the foreground.

I love your relaxation of movement on that life sketch, Aidanconklin, cause you did a very, very fantastic job on it. So, this leaves me with one little advice from me to you: Why don't you go for another 10 minute drawing, please, please? Because, you'll be more, more faster, efficient, and reliable with your values, as applied to your figure studies. For more details, look up the ebook, Light & Shade, by Anson K. Cross. Will you that, please, too?

Keep up the really great work,
