Hey Lucas, Remember the bean is the torso and pelvis and how they relate to each other. In the picture of the three women we are looking up at them, so the lower part of the bean would overlap the upper part. You also are showing the top of the bean, which we wouldn't see because of the perspective. I did a sketch to show you what I mean, I hope it helps :)
Today i had the first contacts with the bean videos. I still need to wrap my head around twisting and foreshortening, but this feels easier to approach than the gesture, at least at first. I'd love to hear your thoughts on what i could be focusing moving forward. Cheers!
The gestures are good but I think you should start looking at figures more in 3d than just 2d photographs For example in the 7th photo, Veronica's left leg is actually in front of her right leg, as in your drawing it seems behind, thus looking unnatural. I'm not saying that you draw the whole but just indicate it with a cylinder or a box whichever you may like (I personally use the cylinder as it is anatomically more correct) Other than that these look great Nice work!
Hey tiozebra, I like what you have done here, you have really embraced the idea of gesture in your drawings. What I suggest is that you try to describe the pose from head to toe with as long of a gesture line as you can. Try to use "S" curves and "C" curves. Also, the limbs can be described with gesture lines as well. I did a couple of sketches to show you what I mean, hope it helps :)
