Andrew, Here's are my 3 completed armatures. The 1st one was created in galvanized steel by mistake. Fortunately, I also had a roll of 18 gauge aluminum so I created the 2nd and 3rd in aluminum. The difference of working with with aluminum compared to galvanized steel was "night and day"! It's actually easier than I expected. I'm still making a few minor mistakes but it's definitely getting much, much better with each one I make. Thanks again for your video that explains it so well and made it so easy to understand. Cheers.

Hi Andrew, First of all your video on how to make an armature was PERFECT!!! I had a few few obstacles because I didn't have the correct materials. Unfortunately I bought the wrong wire before I watched your video. The wire I bought was 16 gauge "galvanized steel". As you can imagine, the tough steel was much more challenging to work with than had I had soft 14 gauge aluminium wire. The steel was so tough and inflexible that at one point it actually broke as I was twisting it. That's why the neck is so thick.... It didn't matter. I just kept going because I still needed to use the exercise to practice. Besides, it was a great experience and I learned a lot from my mistakes... As I was working, I was also having fun and enjoying time and laughing with my family, So I got distracted after doing the right side of the armature and ended up going up the spine before go to the left leg as you instructed us in your video. So I had to unwind the tough galvanized steel wire from the spine and completely go back down the left leg. It was actually pretty funny. Despite the challenges of the materials and my mistakes, I'm actually really happy and really impressed that I was able to succeed at creating my first armature despite the challenge of working with gauge galvanized steel wire. Your video was AWESOME! Breaking down the inches into units made it all very simple and easy to understand. Thanks again for making such a great video and making it so easy understandable. I just ordered the correct 14 gauge aluminum which will arrive in a few days. Once it arrives, I'm sure it will be so much easier to work with and I will be cranking these out with much more ease, proficiency, and speed. Anyway, for documentation, here's a few pictures of my first exercise with the armature sitting down and standing. Thanks again. Cheers!

Hi everyone! :D This is my first time submitting an assignment. I have done the lesson itself before though, but then life got in the way and time flew away. With the new Proko 2:0 and all this great community it seemed like a great time to start this again and do it more properly. :) The smaller more stick figury gestures I drew while I watched a ballet video on youtube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zE5LDPx3XUg That was relaxing and enjoyable and I just paused at interesting poses, and drew those gestures. The people in the video are rather small and I think that helped me to not focus to much on all the detail of the bodies. The refrence pictures for the longer gesture drawing, are from Adorkastock: https://www.deviantart.com/adorkastock A couple of the refrence photos are of more than one person and they were more challenging to do. Does it matter if there are more then one prerson in the photo then doing gesture drawings though? I’ve watched Proko's video on how to hold and control your pencil. So I try to use my shoulder and the over hand grip, but since I’m still not used to it, the lines don’t always appear there I want them to yet. Sometimes I also got a bit nervous knowing that I was going to submit this for other people to see and that unfortunately made my arm tense then I was drawing to. Maybe I just need to continue practice and it will work itself out on it own! :D I think I might have become overwhelmed with everything to keep in mind (the story of the pose, drawing with the shoulders, ghosting the lines and then finding the actual gesture!) and ended up defaulting to drawing the contours sometimes. Even if I at times got stuck in my own head, I still had a lot of fun! I really want to learn and get better, so any feedback or critique would be very much appreciated! :D

Hello! This is my first time posting. I’ve worked in gesture a lot before but I’ve decided to crack down and work through this course spending 7 days on each concept, even the ones I’m familiar with. I used #25 Jin: Friday Evening Figure Drawing on YouTube for these poses. That’s my go-to for gesture practice. I struggle a lot with exaggeration and getting away from what’s “Correct” and going to what feel good. I understand the concepts of gesture but I feel my execution is still lacking. Any critiques you can offer is appreciated!
