Page of 45 second poses. started with the timer at 30 but couldn't quite get the full pose done in time. Planning to work my way down to 30 from 45 i keep having a little 5-10 second panic whenever I start the timer ha. Feedback is very welcome! I'm not a beginner but its been quite a while. Always really struggled with gesture so its the main area I'm looking to improve at the moment. Thanks! Darragh

Honestly, I feel like you captured the true essence of what 30 second poses are about. Great work! keep it up

I did 10 gesture drawings, 2-minutes for each. I feel like I'm not quite understanding the concept. What are my biggest issues here?

hi Aiden! I'm a beginner as well, but I would have to agree with the other comment. It looks like your figures are a bit stiff. You are focusing more on the detail and contour than the the flow of movement. Also, something many beginners get caught up in (myself included) is getting too attached to making a pretty picture. Gesture drawings are for exercise, not intended to be a finished piece. So try to allow yourself to be a little more loose, make a LOT of un-pretty drawings, loosen up a bit more, and focus much more on the line of action than any of the superficial details. Hope that was helpful.
