Hey there proko community! I am currently attending the proko youtube online figure class but i have a problem: Since my country is very strict when deciding about restrictions (especially those connected to nudity) i dont have access to some of stans videos the age verification over here is quite exhausting so i would thank anyone who can help me out. The videos im talking about are those about the female chest and butt area. Thanks in advance! simon

Try using a VPN like NordVPN or ExpressVPN (these two are subscription based, but there are some free ones out there). These can make your internet traffic look like it's coming from a different country, so that websites won't block you.

Hi there, I haven't drawn gesture a lot. Here are my 1 minute gesture drawing. Hopefully someone could give some critiques. : )

These are really good! Not sure that I believe you when you say you haven't drawn gesture a lot. :P You're really good at finding a through line and building the contours around it. I think all I would say is to watch just how far you're exaggerating. Exaggeration is great and is how we capture the movement of a gesture, but try not to push it too far or your people will look like spaghetti (mostly looking at some of the ones in your second row. The third row looks like you've got the balance down pat). But it's still all looking good so far, just keep practicing!

Awesome idea! My name is Seb and I've been drawing as long as I've been alive, but really started drawing consistently/seriously around age 12, 16 years ago. I went to school for illustration, but the art program at my university was very underfunded and I feel like the curriculum didn't give me what I needed/wanted out of my schooling. About a year after graduating, I found Stan's YouTube! I think it was still mostly all him at the time. I'm really proud of him and everyone at Proko now for what they've built this into. It's a huge help for me and makes me really optimistic for all the upcoming artists in the world. Here's some of my stuff:

Asked for help
Hello all, here are some recent 30-second and 2-minute quick sketches from today after practicing them for the past few weeks. I'm finding it difficult to analyze what I did right when a gesture seems to turn out well (e.g. bottom-middle of the first page) as well as how to see exactly where the mistakes are when a gesture feels "off" (like page 3, #2). I feel this is especially true when it comes to the 2-minute poses since there are more lines being used. I feel like I understand the concepts on a theoretical level, but it feels like I'm still guessing when it comes to putting them into practice, so any advice/criticism is appreciated!

In regards to which ones turn out well/which don't, it looks like it's about which contours you're choose to represent or exaggerate. In the "good" one you pointed out, I can clearly tell the model's pose and motion based on how you chose to represent their rear and the leg closest to us in one curve. In the one you pointed out as "off", the contours you've chosen are unclear and don't represent the pose as well (I'd have to see the photo to really figure out what's going on). It takes a lot of time to figure out which contours are the best to push in a gesture, and it's different for each one- just keep practicing and you'll figure it out!
