Gesture Drills Slideshow (gif)


Author Comments

At the recommendation of @SuperBastard and @Template88, I've been doing gesture drills for the past couple of days. I spent about half an hour on them the evening of the 14th (for the first four), and I spent about 50 minutes on them the evening of the 15th (for the last seven).

I'm currently setting my timer to 5 minutes on a particular training site (linked below), and then allowing myself an extra 1-2 minutes if I get too distracted or OCD to address AT LEAST A MAJORITY of the body parts. At this point, my primary concern is that I'm using a lot of lines, and that I'm often not able to address every body part before my time runs out. I figure these two are probably correlated, and that I need to work faster. I will keep this in mind in my future gesture drill sessions.

Any further feedback is appreciated!



Most of these aren't half bad tbh, i'm not a professional artist to give any advice but i can tell you're on the right way! ^^

Your jumping right off into the deep end... That's one way to learn how to swim I guess...
Practice from photography is always recommended by me anyway... It gives you a more realistic idea of body form and anatomy than practicing from drawings would...
5 minutes doesn't really give you much time to absorb absolutely everything..
Maybe an extension of ten to twenty minutes per sketch is advisable since you haven't drawn for a while and you are pretty much starting from scratch... I hope to see great things from you in the future... Try not to rush things it will take as long as it takes... Just remember to practice...
And don't give up...

I've been seriously considering extending it to 10 minutes, as I've needed a 1-minute extension on most of them to get these results. I think I'll try 10 minutes tomorrow. Thanks for the very helpful feedback! Hope to get more from you going forward.
