First 5 min drawing
The gesture is exaggerated, and the hand chest, ribcage positive to negative space was lost in trying to find the correct line. I feel I am over-focused on this area- that "All-encompassing determination to get that one bit right" lured me in again. And, like in most cases, it killed the gesture. In consequence of my frustration, I did not give myself time to work on parts of the story that would have made the better vision. I pressed harder and forgot I did not need to outline every aspect of the figure.
Yet, I digress. It is just a gesture. But If I am not slightly rough on efforts, I will never feel the yen to get a bit better.
I think it is time for some new exercises to get me out of my hunky chunk line funk. Got any suggestions?
Thanks for the reading, time and words you spend on my learning. I truly appreciate your efforts.
All the best,
