My first try was the same George Bridgman. I think the hips are too wide and he's a bit on the short side. I like this exercise.

great job! don't worry about the proportions too much during these but I would suggest trying to push the gesture a little farther.

Another Bridgman. I worked this past the hour as I was enjoying it so much.

This is based on a drawing by Stephen Rogers Peck. I really like the lean of the pose and looking at it should have push that more, so his upper body is 'hanging' upon the stick more.

I chose a drawing from George Bridgemans Complete Guide To Drawing From Life, and made the sculpture in one sitting. It took me 1 hour and 30 minutes.

I chose some master sketches from the great Bill Watterson for my gesture studies; feedback appreciated

I tried to do this absolutely ridiculous pose based off a Loomis gesture. I think I probably could have pushed the gesture farther, but I didn't realize that until I had the photos in front of me. It was fun to try and figure out nonetheless.

Wow that’s a crazy pose! Yeah I have the same thing where I can’t see some of the mistakes until I take a picture or video and then I’m like “Is that what it looks like?”

Hi, Andrew. For the kneeling man I used a drawing from the Gottfried Bammes book Anatomy for Artists, and for the other two I used photo references. The left foot of the standing figure should be lifted a bit more, but I couldn't get it to stand properly for the photo. I call the trio "People in despair" :D. It took me a little over one hour for each figure.

Hey these are great! Exactly what the gesture studies should capture. In future lessons I will go more in depth on the shape of the primary forms of the head, rib cage, and pelvis which might be helpful but as far as what’s been covered these are looking great!

I’m totally new to sculpture, but these look great to me, the gestures look very accurate and believable, I like how you chose a theme and did three examples within that category - great job and thanks for posting your work!
