    Hello everybody,

    I’ve been drawing for almost 15 years but I’m not confident in my skills. After using different figure drawing sites such as posemaniacs, I’ve decided that this will be my main place of practice. Here’s some gestures I’ve drawn so far.

    Btw I’m using MyPaint program which is very useful for figure drawing with its unlimited canvas.

    Struggling to find the right brush setting that’s best for quick gestures.

    Hi. Looks fluid to me.

    But I would try to use clear lines in long sweeps, as it’s harder to hide mistakes that way, thus would be easier to find and correct mistakes

    I’ve reduced the gain on the pastel brush for more transparency. However I increased the opaqueness for the top gestures. I may reduce the brush size next time to draw proportionately.

    I’ve been trying to identify weight or force of the movement (for lack of a better term) while doing 30 seconds and 1 minute gestures.

    the movement of the model is shown very well. They are also very consistent and proportion of each study seems to be very accurate

    For the 2 minute I sighted the photo for further accuracy. However I didn’t utilize the body part relationship and rarely measured the negative space. Tips to achieve these two goals in 2 minutes is appreciated.

    Hi! I really like how loose and fluid these feel, very nice! They do seem a bit blurry to me though-that makes it a bit hard to really see them well. I need to do some human anatomy poses, I’ve been doing animals lately :)
