Hey! I'm currently going through Samantha Youssef's book on Gesture "Movement & Form" (The forward is by Aaron Blaise who is well known around these parts). I'm Looking for some feedback. I think I understand the concepts but If anyone out there has experience with this method advice would be appreciated. Currently I'm on the Main Line and Weight Sections. Let me know how these look! thanks in advance!

This thing looks like it "flew beyond the sun before it was time"

I did a blacked out skull painting for this challenge. When the room is dimly lit you have to stand in a certain angle to see the skull. The paints used are acrylic mars black and stuart semple black 2.0

Hello, I'm looking for some feedback. There are a couple things I see. My drawing represents this man to be a bit shorter. mostly happening in the limbs. But what I'm really wondering about is the mannequinization. What are your thoughts? As you can see I wrote myself a note to simplify. I was struggling with that. I've been practicing this for a week and I'm wondering if I should move on. I've heard Stan say on the podcast to spend a week or 2 max on each lesson because the next lesson may help you. Should I move on and come back later?

Hi, Since I am spend the last year with gesture drawing to start a figure drawing, it is difficult for me to start with geometric shapes like in this videos. In this assignment I start with gesture for each body part and add than the form. gesture has burned into my mind :-) Hope this is no problem :-) Which advice can you give me? Thanks for any feedback :-) George

Hey George, I think you may benefit from doing "draw overs" . Watch the 2 longer videos and pause before Stan starts drawing. Go through the process he describes in the First video in this section. Then do a comparison with his results and yours. Draw over your attempt in a different color copying the differences that you see from Stan's attempt. Ask yourself why he did it that way and analyze even small differences. As he describes it does not have to be exact . For me this is process really helping me see things a differently. I hope Hope this helps.

Beautiful character work. What's the story of the image? How can you use the story to inform the environment? What are you trying to say?

Hello everyone, I would love some feedback on these. The ones with pink circles I found confusing. Also as a side note, the community has been very helpful so far! So thank you in. I'm grateful for the feedback and the encouragement I have received so far. Hopefully I can return the favor soon!
