I just rejoined and wanted to get something in for this week, so I took up your suggestion to upload gesture drawings before going through the course. These are from “Seven Two Minute Poses – Female Model”. I’ve done gesture before, but since forcing myself to hold a pencil for drawing rather than writing and draw from the shoulder or elbow, I’ve slowed way down, and I don’t feel the control I’d like to have. That will come with practice, I’m sure. Although I was tired from work and a bit rusty in my pencil drawing, I remember having this problem the last time I did gesture drawings a few months ago.
Sorry for the rough image. The lines were too light for an acceptable phone pic, so I stitched together scans of the page.
