Hello all. I decided I wanted to give gesture drawing a try, so I signed up for this website. I'm a very slow drawer, so drawing gestures has always been difficult for me. As it is, I seem to have trouble finishing my drawing before moving on to the next. Any tips for how to get started?
They give you a good overview of what gestures are about. They intend to capture motion and proportions to give you a proper foundation to work from. They're also great warm ups when you sit down to draw a more detailed image, which can help motivate you to finish what you started! Doing 30 to 90 second gestures frequently can help you draw faster the more confident you get too.
Do you have any works to share so far? If not, I hope you can share your gesture drawings with us as you practice!
