Hey everyone! I've recently decided to write my own stories, and illustrate them, but the problem is that i can not draw at all. So i figured, I'd try drawing people first, and after some research, i found that the best way to start drawing people is gesture drawing. After another research, I found this great site to practice figure drawing.
My problem is that i'm learning on my own, so it's pretty hard to know if im doing things right or wrong. That's why i scanned two pages of my recent gesture drawings / 30 second poses/, because i honestly feel like I"m on the wrong track here... because I red the ' guide to gesture drawing" on this site, but with that method I always run out of time, and my figures look rather stiff. However, without that method, i always seem to draw the outline of the figure, which I red that is not really gesture drawing, so I"m feel kind of lost and confused.. Anyway, here are my attempts, and if you have some advices or critiques for me, I"d like to read them :) Thank you!
