Gesture Sketchdump 1 by Ric-M Gesture Sketchdump 1 by Ric-M

Gesture sketchdump 1 of 2. Had to split the file because it was too big.

These are gestural studies I try to do daily before I move on with my usual stuff. I pulled most of the ones from January and late December, but I also threw in some ones I did in summer and fall of 2013 (the bottom half). I use artists.pixelovely.com/practic… but lately I've been following Proko.com and purchased his photos to practice from, along with following his technique for gesture drawing.

Thanks! I think you should certainly give it a try. I've barely even begun to grasp the concept despite being at it for months, but it's fun and really entertaining to watch other artists do it as well, I'm always amazed that every artists has their own unique approach :)

I've taken a couple of figure drawing classes and it's helped me so much, so I really should keep at the gesture drawing before I get too rusty! :0 And yeah, it is really cool to see how everyone brings their own style to it. Because with gesture drawings you can be pretty stylized while still accurately capturing the movement and feel of the pose.

Oh yeah definitely. I'm always amazed that so much feeling can be captured in as little as 15-30 seconds with such few lines, I love those kind of gestures :D
