30 sec gesture study 1

by Amurphyr, April 30th 2020 © 2020 Amurphyr

Done as part of a practice session with poses of 30 seconds in length.

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

Excellent job on your 30 sec sketches, Amurphyr, but I've got one smaller request: Would you like to go for a 2 minute drawing in woodless graphite, pretty please???? And do ya know why????? So that your movements will become more strong, yet in a subtle way. Hope it helps in the most pivotal way.

This is a great start! Try being a little looser and lighter with your lines if you can, and don't be afraid to go over a a section multiple times until you find the right location/proportion. Go on youtube and look up Glen Keane Gesture Drawing, he is a former Disney animator who's work I'm sure you'd know, and he's really great at capturing gesture. Good luck!
