I've tried to make the mannequins have a nice sense of gesture to them, while retaining the 3-d feel of the forms. I didn't really focus on making the muscles defined (though on some of these they did end up that way, more or less) just trying to identify the different forms making up the pose while also taking care to not let the proportions grow too out of whack. I'm mostly happy with how these turned out, but I definitely need to practice twisting motions more since those gave me a bit of grief. I made these with a pencil, but then reinforced some of the lines digitally after I scanned them, the name & number combination next to the figures correspond to a model + pose number that I got from Proko. If you have any critiques or tips it would be much appreciated! I personally feel like I could be a bit more bold with my form manipulations and with trying to exaggerate the poses.
I've been practicing drawing the structure for a year+, I think I'm pretty comfortable with it at this point, though I must admit that some more longhaired animals/weirder angles are still pretty challenging. Some of the time I only draw the structure of the head, since I actually find it more challenging to draw the structure of the head in more detail than I do drawing the whole body with a more simplified head structure. I'm trying to capture the gesture while also maintaining proper proportions. If you have any tips or critiques they would be much appreciated
I've been drawing for like a year and a half now and I decided to try and brush up on some of the basics so I've been doing gesture drawings. I've really been trying to focus on getting my quick-sketches to be more well proportioned while retaining a nice gesture to them as well as trying to do them quicker. Let me know what you think! The poses are all from the various "poses for artists" packs from Proko and I wrote down the name of the model and the number of the reference image in case you want to check them.
