I was doing some gesture drawings today with soft vine charcoal:
According to Wikipedia, the primary purpose of gesture drawing is to study the human figure in motion.
I did my sketches in 30 seconds or less:
And I used PoseManiacs.com as my reference for my drawings. This site is great because you can time the pose for 10 seconds or more!
Searching the internet I discovered an awesome YouTube video by Ryan Woodward – the gesture drawings are animated to music. It is really fun to watch so I hope you google it!
I really enjoyed this exercise! Do you practice gesture drawing on a regular basis? I’d love to hear from you!
Happy Drawing! 🙂
