    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.

    Thanks for reading, and good luck to you. Cheers.

    I like the way it looks a lot. The lines are very satisfying :D


    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!


    Thank you for the feedback @Polyvios Animation ! I definitely see what you mean by the squash-and-stretch so I will focus on really capturing that in my sessions.
