Recently I haven't been totally satisfied with where I'm going in my figure drawings and so I've been working on my gesture often. I would love to get some feedback on my work so far! Thank you in advance :)
Well, yangrc, I totally love how gestural your drawings have become, so far, so good.
Again, if I would provide you a totally sincere flak, I suggest that some of the figure bodies are just a little bit to rigid, and there's not enough squash-and-stretch. Why don't you please do more of that, with 15 minutes of 30 second warm-up bad writings? (900 seconds/30 secs=20 sketches)
The reason why you could use this suggestion is because, to reduce stiffness in your gesture poses, and to give them more of that dynamic, energetic, vital, and fluid quality.
I think you did a really great job of capturing the twist and motion in the spine and leg areas especially! I think a good next step would be to do longer gestures focusing on adding more structure to the pose without losing the motion. Keep up the good work!
