My first attempts at gesture. I have rekindled my old love for drawing in recent weeks, but I find myself without direction. I figured going for a more classical schooling would help me on my way to my goal of comic art. Understanding the human body has always been my downfall and I feel like these classes are helping. Unfortunately they are no where near refined and they took maybe a little bit longer than 2 mins a piece.

These figure drawings are quite well done. I see that you understand the movement of those references, but I can also see that in the last two pictures, you're getting a lot of lumps, and I understand your trying to draw the musculature, but we aren't there yet. It just takes you to get that clean line of movement, so I would recommend not just using sci as small but trying to draw them bigger for example, use the s curve as the whole body instead of drawing the bumps. It's a sense of feeling if that makes sense, but besides that, you got it. Keep up the great work

Not bad, one thing I notice is you've got some hairy lines. Try to create a single pencil stroke when you're doing the gesture studies.

Heyo! I've been doing some gesture drawing recently and these are the 5-minute ones I did today, can I get some critism/feedback on it? Also should I do shorter length time too? Thanks in advanced!

I think you should start with free hand stroke to get clear lines ,for the length time ig your thinking a lot don't rush things , first think how you gonna approch it and then do it ,like proko said "it's ok to study figure before starting "

I’m thinking on starting Figure drawing Fundamentas , how do you actually dive your time studying it? Do I stay one week in each module ? Dedicate a few hours a day for a week or something or just go through them

I think you just go at your own pace. I've spent a few weeks on the gesture portion. I broke down my time like this: For each video - 1 session where I watch first and draw after 1 session for drawing before watching each gesture & compare 1 session where I draw along For the example videos, each session ended up being 3-4 sessions because of how much I was studying the way Stan draws the gestures. For the critique feedback video, I'm watching 20 mins of it at a time, then doing my session of 10 timed 30s drawings & 10 timed 2 min drawings

Hello all. Can anyone help me out here. What is the difference between this course and the Anatomy of the Human Body course? Besides the hefty price tag.

On each class tap the ‘Lessons’ tab & see all of what he’s instructing on. That should help see the difference. It’s immensely different.

So this is actually one of my measure practices but when I went to post...I couldn't find my reference photo! Oh well, I thought I'd get it up anyways! Some of the internal measurement are off. Gotta be a bit more fastidious with my plumb lines.

its good that your gestures are not as stiff. I'd suggest taking out some time to improve your line quality. practice drawing basic shapes, straight lines,circles, curves, for a session. it'll really enhance your sketches.

Hi guys. I recently watched the first two videos of the gesture drawing fundamentals course s couple of times already. I did some 45 seconds and 2 minute poses. I used Quick sketch.com for the poses. The first two images are 45 seconds poses and the rest are 2 minute. Critique is welcome. :)

These look pretty good, but i think you´re still focusing more in the contour of the figures than the real gesture. Think that the gesture is the "directon" of the body parts, also the gesture could be found inside or in the contour of the figure.

Figure study using charcoal pencil and white pastel on A3 toned paper. First attemt on a big scale. Experimenting with different pencils on a toned paper is so much fun, though I need to practice more to achieve better results! Your feedback is much appreciated. Photo ref - IG: @lovero.art

I did some 2-minute and 30-second gestures. I find that I have a hard time getting the proportions right. I'm hoping to get a critique on them so I can improve. I've attached some of the reference pictures I used. Thank you.

how long have you been practicing, I think they are really good, I'm still a beginner

Don´t worry too much about the proportions, the brain learns them with time and practice. These is a good start, i see you´re finding the center line and simplifying the gesture of the limbs. You´re still focusing on the contour of the figure, so remeber that your focus is on the gesture, the flow and the movement.

Don't know if you've gotten an answer somewhere else yet, but just some paper and a charcoal pencil is all you need to get started.

Some understanding of gesture and anatomy has made my artwork 150% more disturbing. Great success.
