Life Study Gesture Drawing

Author Comments

Ah what the hell, I'll put these up in the art portal, too.

These charcoal sketches were all done as warm-ups for my previous course's life drawing unit. We drew both male and female models, but only had about a minute to draw each pose.

The more 'stickman-like' outlined figures were drawn in 30 seconds, while the shaded ones were drawn in 1-2 minutes.

I'll post some more refined versions of these in a bit! <3
Hope you like 'em!


Would love to see you push the gesture pose FURTHER! Give some real life to their poses...

Great progress!

I know... I wish I could do it more often!
I've been to this one place that charges 10 bucks per drop-in session, but it's way out of the way, and I usually work when they have models in.

Been wanting to do more digital gesture work like this-- I'm kinda slow in comparison to traditional drawing mediums.

these rough sketches are simply wonderful... i could see you done simple pictures of these models in a story... nice work here i think

These are beautiful!!
