Gestures are HARD!

So since I'm immersing myself in every possible effort to get ready for the Animation program, I have been introduced to the lovely concept of gesture drawing. In case you don't know, it's basically trying to capture an expressive movement or action in a figure while maintaining a correct (albeit concise) anatomical structure in the drawing....and all that is done during a pose that lasts anywhere from 30 seconds to three or four minutes. So here are a few of the ones I've done lately that have shown glimmers of hope.

Oh my goodness! I remember when we did this in art class.. it always started off being so freakin frustrating.. (just start to get a feel for something then they move) but in the end, when you have all these great sketches of movement.. and you can sit back and go, "wow. not too shabby", it ends up being rewarding. Way to go! (these are great, btw)

I agree...they are hard. But you're very good at them! I especially love the darker ink ones.

Nice work, Aaron!! These look great! Maybe not perfect, but There's a lot of great stuff going on here - you're catching on very quickly! :)

Oh gosh these are so nice! These look so darn good! I especially like the ones in pencil, but then I also especially like the ones with brush pen :) But seriously your brush-penning is downright impressive.
