Here's some of my quick model sketches, This are all from my art class yesterday, The class im taking is held once a week, 3 and a half hours, and I have to say that the class is almost the only thing that makes sure I keep drawing, I find it very hard to sit down and draw at home.

Here are some of mine, the longest of which ran for 25 minutes. How short must a 'gesture' be in this forum?

Octothreat,

Really, there's no time limit for Gesture drawings here ~ usually a 25 minute isn't really a gesture, but, meh? It doesn't really concern me so long as you don't have a fully rendered drawing.

I really like the lower right corner piece ~ that to me is a very gestural drawing.

Thanks for posting these! I look forward to seeing more of your work!

Exclamation Gesture

Hi there,
I don't think that I belong here, but as it is the third time I try to get some feedback on my gesture experiments I'll post them here now. I have no earlier experience in drawing humans so I hope you are giving me feedback what I need to pay atention to.

Thanks, eXi

PS: All these are done by imagination

exi80,

I apologize, I've been really busy and had kind of forgotten to review your work, so you'll have to excuse me! I've had your work in the back of my mind, and then just go distracted. Here, finally, is your review.



And you DO belong here, the thread is for any and all Gesture drawings.

exi80,

Here are my review comments: I think that you are doing a very decent job, particularly since you are just beginning. I am happy to see you posting your work! One thing I think you need to focus on is LENGTHENING forms. Unless you are drawing children, torsos and limbs will be much more elongated.

The key to all of this is Practice. Draw from life, books, or from Web References as much as you can, and continue to post your work for peer, not just my, review. Other peoples' eyes can see more than we can sometimes, so having others look at our work definitely helps.

I think you should also participate in Lesson 003, too, if you have time. It is as important to learn the fine details of anatomy and skeletal / muscle features as it is to learn Gesture Drawing.

Good luck, and I hope you participate in the Lesson and post more of your work!

You have through August 5th to post a drawing of a skull.

Been reading all these threads for a while now and its got me intrested in drawing again. Don't really get much chance on my 3d course anymore. Anyway here is a drawing i did yesterday took me about 15mins I think. Speed hasn't ever been my strongest point, it always takes me a long time even to do a sketch. Hope its ok, its done with a black pen and a white pencil. Drawing was never my strongest subject so hopefully by practicing I'll get a better . Doesn't feel very gestural to the others posted, I guess i need to do what my teachers were always telling me and loosen up, I've always found it hard though.

Drake_Stormrage and vikkie,

Cool work!! Glad to see you guys posting here! Keep up the good work!

D4ng3rmouse,

Great work, thanks for posting here! Indeed, the fight to keep work both loose and gestural, and tight and detailed simultaneously is the figurative artist's eternal struggle! I think that you are doing a great job and should continue to post your work!

I am happy to announce that my good friend Hong Ly will be providing us with excellent photographs of models for a new drawing thread called "Open Figure Drawing Workshop", in which photos will be posted from which we can all draw. This thread will be opening soon, so stay tuned!!!

Here's my try:



Done with Alias SketchBook Pro 2.
I'm getting better results with pen and paper, unfortunately I don't have a scanner to show.

lunat1k,

These are really nice gestures! I would just say to really emphasize those Opposing Curves to really get the rhythm of the figures going. Thanks for posting these!

Smile few gestures from yesterday

Alias SketchBook, 2-3 mins each pose. all based on photos from web. Trying to use Paul Sheldon´s technique on gestures. I´m slowly getting closer and understand it more and more (I guess )

lunat1k,

These are coming along nicely! There are a few problems to address, but I think that you as well as others on this forum will be interested to know that soon a new thread devoted to Figurative Drawing (be it Gestural or otherwise) called "Open Figure Drawing Workshop" will be posted, so definitely stay tuned!!

My good friend Hong Ly has graciously agreed to allow us to use his excellent photographs of models to be used as reference. Hong and I will be posting different photographs on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. Hopefully, there will be many interested in coming to the thread to draw in their chosen style and medium!

Libor,

These are really cool sketches as well, thanks for posting them! I hope that you will join us for the "Open Figure Drawing Workshop" when it opens soon. I like the look nad feel of Alias Sketchbook Pro, but be careful about getting carried away with the slickness of the surface. Part of what I miss in tablets is the feeling of paper whose texture tends to slow artists down and forces them to consider in a tactile way what stroke they will be placing next. I test drove some of the new Wacom tablets at SIGGRAPH and they were awesome! They get better and better, but I wonder if they can somehow implement a textured feel to the drawing surface. Anyhoo, thank you for posting these, and I hope to see more of your work!
