Feedback on Gesture for this Exercise
I recently tried the seal exercise to focus on gesture. I'm pleased with how fluid they are and I definitely see an improvement with trying to tell a story in the shape and focusing on simplicity. However, I feel like it's still somewhat rigid or that some are not dramatic enough. I would love to hear feedback. I feel as though some of the seals don't have that "pinching" affect.
What's making your drawings feel stiff is the over complicated contour. If you simplify the contour like you did in one of the seals, it will give your drawings more gesture and flow. I did a quick sketch to show you what I mean :)
