5 minute gestures

by Sanne, September 15th 2018 © 2018 Sanne

Done as part of a practice session with poses of 05 minutes in length.

My current goal is: Reduce stiffness and make my drawings feel more dynamic, energetic, fluid

I've been trying to reduce the number of lines I use in gestures and taking more time to choose my lines. I recognize that perspective and proportions can still be hard for me to get right on the first try, as I'm constantly tempted to erase lines and try again.


Looks like you have a good handle on perspective! As for adding fluidity, try using references of people running, jumping, swimming, or otherwise doing something active rather than just posing. Sports magazines are great for this sort of thing.
