How much time do you give yourself with each gesture drawing? In general, I like the wireframe thing you've got going and I see that you've started to add some meat to it, hoping to see when you start adding the simple contour to your gesture drawings.June 20, 2019 11:07am #3951
well, I am so happy to get a response from you. first, I prefer to pay a minute for each image. when I drawing, that contour wasn't the important point, it just helps me to review after draws. You know I don't want anything to be too serious, so if you think you want to add some ..like a simple contour..just because it would be helpful for you, you can just do it.?June 20, 2019 12:13pm #3952June 21, 2019 10:14am #3954June 22, 2019 10:50am #3958June 23, 2019 11:23am #3961June 24, 2019 11:20am #3965June 24, 2019 9:00pm #3967
1) I see that in every single one of your sketches, you used a circle like shape in the joints, to connect limbs. I think it is useless, since it's not really helpinng you in anyway, and sometimes it's better to think about the entire limb as one unit, ignoring it's two parts.
2) connecting to my first point, you seem to try to use a very specific way of simple mannakanization of the human body every single time. even though it's sometimes helpfull to draw the pelvis and the ribcage, I think you are a bit distracted by them. try at least on the one minute or thirty seconds ones, to just find the main directions, or forces the body takes. for example, if a figure is streching it's hand up, that would be an important thing to draw, but if the other hand is facing a little back, and doesn't seem important to the entire pose, you don't necessirily have to include it.
3) you're drawing reallly small. it might help you to learn how to draw with the overhand grip, rather then the usuall writing one, and then it would be easier to draw with your entire arm (rather then just the palm) so you can draw long, flowy lines. Stan Prokopenko, from the YouTube channel Proko, teaces that really well. look for his video, "how to hold your pencil" you could benefit much from his gesture videos, as well.
keep practicing!June 25, 2019 7:53am #3969
thank you very much!!!!!!
for the first point,i will pay more attention about it ,but most time i would like to draw a circle to keep proportion.
second,i drawed that contour after each practice because i think it is easy to be recognized what the pose be.i draw that hand which is not necessary far to make image more completely (may be just i think).
third ,actually, each image is not small as you think. they have 13-16cm height at least!!
thank you for you timeJune 25, 2019 10:51am #3970
