Here's a thing I found interesting and that I'd like your thoughts on. I'm (still) trying to get my gestures more fliud and dynamic, and I realised I'm working with my wrist not my shoulder. So I stood up to draw instead of sitting down. It seems to me to have had quite an impact.
These two images are showing the same poses drawn sitting (top row), and standing (bottom row). The bottom ones look much more flowing to me. Do you agree?
And these are longer 15 minute drawings, the first two sitting down and the second two standing up. Again, the first ones ones seem stiffer than the pair I did standing up and using my shoulder.
I've been doing lots of Proko Robobean practice over the last week or so, and thinking much more about perspective and proportion. Hopefully some of that is coming through too!
Anyway - I feel like standing up has given me a bit of a leap forward. Be interested to hear what you all think!
