Last week I followed along Stans example drawings, first by myself with stans drawing hidden then following stan and finally redrawing alone, incorporating some things I learned. I used the overhand grip and really struggled to control the line and stick to the time in the beginning, towards the end it started feeling a bit more natural :) here are some of the practice drawings:
Learning about the overhand grip, how to sharpen a pencil and how to draw using the shoulder has been really eye opening to me thank you again @Jesper Axelsson for refering me to this video. This week I have been doing the exercises provided here and a few others every day as a warm up. I especially struggle with keeping my lines straight whilst switching from thin to thick so i will keep on practicing that.
Hi everybody, here are my first gesture drawings from yesterday, all of them took either 2min or just under 3min, (the lines get progressivly darker with practice) I struggled a bit with focusing on gesture instead of contours and want to limit the amount of lines I use a bit more. All feedback would be greatly appreciated. Wish you all wonderful days and a lot of fun practicing :)
