Gesture excercise

by Soft Circles, May 8th 2020 © 2020 Soft Circles

Done as part of a practice session with poses of 60 seconds in length.

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


I think your croquis look natural! They've captured the overall human form well. Though I would recommend better time management (some of them don't look quite finished).

Nice job on your first post, soft_circles. Very promising, and lots of potential indeed, but, I've got one smallest suggestion: Why don't you pick up a copy of 2 books by Walt Stantchfield, the world-famous gesture drawing teacher of Modern Disney Animation, (physical or electronic) then sketch out some drawings in 30 seconds per drawing, one drawing. The impulse why I told you is because, your drawings will have a lot of animation and action to them in sequence, and you'd spend less time on forms and details, and more time on forces and vitality. I Bob Hope it's extremely important.
