Gesture Drawing Critique
Hello guys! I've been doing about 10 gesture drawings a day since June 25. These are some pages from the last 6 days. I haven't been too strict on the timer, but these are all 2.5 minutes to a minute. The order is backwards, the first page is from today, the last from a week ago. Hopefully they're getting better and not worse (; Please let me know what suggestions you have! Thanks in advance. -Emma

Hi @Emma, these are some great gesture drawing studies. I really like how you've abstracted the shapes of the torsos/limbs so to create more flow in your drawings. The actual gestures are pretty solid overall, so the only critique that I can think of would be to still keep an eye out for your proportions/structure in your figures. Namely, the two images I attached below, you can see some instances where the structure of the actual figure started to slip a little bit. It's a lot to juggle, especially when doing quick gestures, but try to keep this in mind as you continue to do these exercises because it'll only serve to help you once you start getting into longer and more finished poses. Hope this helps! And feel free to let me know if you have any questions

Thanks @Luigi Manese! Glad to know I'm headed in the right direction. I see now the hips are ill placed on the left one... is that the same issue with the right?
