How to Draw Gesture.
This is very important. People have said they liked my drawings especially because the lines feel smooth, and dynamic. I’m merely applying the gestures and curves this guy is talking about. Like the video shows, it’s the feel of the drawing that comes first, through gesture, then add the details.
oh gosh i cannot exaggerate the importance enough this was pretty much half of my sophomore art class and after that I can say my figures improved VERY DRAMATICALLY also learning with 30 second gestures is a great way to loosen up and feel the spirit of the model and their movement and action it can be really fun and relaxing I highly recommend
This thing is pretty much the reason why I harp on other artists and tell them to do quicksketches whenever they say something like ‘oh my poses are all so stiff’ or ‘I can’t draw poses’ or ‘I just can’t draw people’. Doing this stuff can really loosen up your drawing arm and give you ideas on how to work on new poses. Most people have somebody they can get to model for them, too, and if you lack live models you can find pose sets online.
