I've been drawing for a while but recently started to focus on the human form quite heavily. I've never before submitted work for a critique, so I look forward to your feedback. Attached you will find a set of 30s gesture drawings.December 1, 2016 2:53am #1531December 1, 2016 2:54am #1532December 1, 2016 12:02pm #1533
Hi Jeremy, I hope this helps :).1December 2, 2016 6:18am #1546
Swen, your image appears to not work. Can you repost? I'm really curious what you did. :)1December 2, 2016 6:35am #1547
Thanks for the notification Kim, this should solve it.December 2, 2016 10:55am #1548
Thank you, this is a brand new prospective for me to work on.December 2, 2016 12:42pm #1549
You're welcome JeremyA. Keep in mind that improvement doesn't come by just drawing. You need to spend time acquiring knowledge about the fundamentals also.1December 3, 2016 3:03pm #1554
Swen, could you say a little more about how you're using the word "rhythm" here?1December 4, 2016 2:43am #1559
Sure Kim, thanks for asking.
Rhythm is essentially a regular, repeated pattern. In the context of the figure rhythm occurs in a repeated pattern of alternating ‘C’ curves. This pattern is what I was referring to. Any pose can be broken down into its own rhythms.
On an abstract level, rhythm is what really creates a sense of energy and movement in a pose. I attached a page from one of my tutorials in which I illustrated what I’m talking about. I hope this helps :).1December 4, 2016 2:44am #15601December 7, 2016 4:23am #1579December 7, 2016 6:41am #1581
Hi Jeremy, yes I can definitely see the improvement! Your gestures from today feel a LOT less static than the first image in this thread. :) Good job!1December 8, 2016 6:10am #1596December 8, 2016 7:14am #1597
