Hello all - I started this course a little over a week ago and love doing these gesture assignments! I think based on my attempts that my knowledge of anatomy has clear gaps in it and I have a tendancy to try and follow the contour rather than the gesture. I also have a weird problem where I usually start with the head but then draw everything else much bigger and have the scale up the head at the end - this isn't a huge issue but means some drawings end up overlapping. I would really appreciate some feedback on how to improve. Mix of 30 sec & 2 min poses. Cheers!

Help me please, I'm confused if I'm on the right track, I'm using 1 minute for each pose because in 30 seconds I get lost and can't finish the figure, but my drawings don't have the same fluidity shown in the videos and when I focus more on fluidity I feel my proportions getting worse, especially in the arms and legs. I appreciate any advice or tips. Thank you!

Hey i think these look great, I have the same issues as you in regards to flow vs proportional accuracy. I think the main thing at this stage is to keep at it! Decide before each pose if you going to focus on flow or proportion and once you get to the point where you can feel each out in isolation then start combining them. Prokopenko's been drawing for literally years so it's likely intuative for him at this point - the gestures he puts as examples are a skill that takes years to develop so just stick at it and trust the process.
