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.
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 :).
