Hello, these are super cool :) I'd say you could draw through your forms, to see if the edges roughly hit the vanishing points. It will probably make the animals a bit more messy, but helps in understanding and spotting mistakes. E.g. it helps me to look out for curvature in my cylinder cross contours. Hope this helps :D

Hello, I wached the bean intro video last week and practiced them for a while now. Today I was having a really hard time with finding the gesture/ action, so I decided to add the bean into the mix. This has helped me a lot to get a better feel for my gesture drawings. After warming up with 10 60s drawings I went ahead and did the 2min draw along/ assignment example. The result was much better than it would have been without the bean. I am going to do a few gestures in ink soon and look more for force, when observing the reference. Looking forward to your feedback. :) (no idea why, but my pictures get rotated, when uploaded)

Hello, these are my beans after roughly 4-5 sessions of 20min (30s beans) and 20 min (60s beans). I am having a hard time with poses, which combine a twisting and tilting motion. For now I think I should check out the videos for each motion. Apart from that, I was having a hard time with my gesture drawings and as soon as I incorporated the bean, they improved by a lot. So yeah, they do help with gesture, which is very nice. Looking forward to your feedback :)

Hi, they are pretty nice. I can tell what is going on and I'd say you managed to preserve the energy of the reference you used. Taking more time is not neccessarily a bad thing. I like to to do session which incorporate poses from 30s to 10 min. This allows me to practice observing quickly, as well as really thinking about what I do and why I do it. You could start to draw through a bit more, it helps to further your understanding of where things attach. :) -Kay

Hello, these are my most recent gestures. the last 2 images are from Stan's quicksketch session. The lighting is a bit bad. The pages before that are yesterday's 30m session+ a little attempt at shading. I did the quicksketch session 4-5 days ago. While I do think I improved (disregarding line quality) I started having a harder time w the 30s gestures. This might be due to me rewatching some videos and further understanding the concepts, which causes me to look/ think about more stuff in the same amount of time. Right now, I am trying to use the concept of flow to prioritize which lines I should draw. One thing which happened was that I was having problems w the limbs and where they curve, but that should be sorted out soon enough. The last thing I was a bit too focused on was subconsciously drawing the contour instead of the flow etc. I think I will watch the second video of the flow series (and rewatch nr 1, as well as the feedback I already got) and move on to the student critique. What do you guys think? What should I look out for in my drawings? When did you move on to the next sections of the course? Looking forward to your feedback :D -Kay

Hello, these are my most recent gestures (4th session). Image 1+2 were part of a 1h session after rewatching the first vid (didn't see the others yet). 3+4 after rewatching the first "Flow Method" video. Now that I look at it I think page 1 is alright, even though I do oversimplify. Page 2 is where it kind of starts falling apart for me. Maybe all of this new info overwhelmed me. I tried to apply "force" without really understanding it. I realized this after rewatching it. I then proceeded to ditch stuff like line of action and other concepts in favor of "force". Bad idea. It visibly decreased my confidence, which shows in my lines. Page 4 was, a bit better maybe? The 5 and 10 minute poses seem to be a bit easier to read, but the 20 min one felt awful to be quite honest. I will move on to the demo tomorrow and keep an eye out for stuff like how Stan does limbs and when to simplify shapes. There is also the issue of not knowing how to combine the concepts of Stan and Mike Mattesi instead of treating both as hard rules with no option to combine them. Well, I've got a lot to learn :) I am looking forward to the feedback. :0 (Btw here are some resources I use for practicing: line-of-action.com quickposes.com)
