Man doing a robot dance (I guess)

by Khrononaut, February 14th 2022 © 2022 Khrononaut

Done as part of a 1 hour class.

My current goal is: Better understand human anatomy, so I can render imagined poses

This time, I focused on the proportions only.

Hello and good evening, Khrononaut. How are you? I'm fine, how are you?? Good job on your anatomy. Great job on your gestures and all of your rhythm lines. They look like this man is doing "The Robot." Keep going.

I've got one small hitch. If you really want to capture the feeling of phoniness of this robot, the angles are too paler and not organic enough. Would you please loosen up your dominant/non-dominant hands with a 2 minute blind contour gesture drawing? (gesture drawing without looking) So, that you'll be able to get your human anatomy and gestures the least stiffest, and the most fluidest and liveliest and craziest. For more than enough of info, look up some books, kindles and ebooks on quick sketch, and several more on YouTube tutorials, Action! Cartooning, for example.

Rest assured that your goal will follow thru. Good luck to that, and I hope you've found these helpful and encouraging.


proportions are good. legs part may need more rendering~
