"Never regret thy fall from grace, O' spirit of Icarian flight, for the greatest tragedy of them all to face, is to never feel the burning bright"
Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

i'm postin' my mouths i did for the previous one here(i want my star! ) :p
but i did not have enough time to do decent studies, so it are just a few lil (laughing)mouths.
can't enter this one though, i'll be away for 2 weeks. have fun everyone!
I totally missed the last one because of work, i'll post my drawings here once i finish them! Kudos to Prepsage for his drawings, you've got a great loose feel to them that looks fantastic. Some nice stuff from 0shade0 and Rabbi Satan as well!
thanks ibbo. Updated moar gestures-unfortunately, I'm seeing a lot of inconsistencies with my lines + timing.
shade & rabbi- try to loosen up a bit and see "around" the fig with your lines. Gesture drawing-from what I've learned- is about capturing the expression of the figure. While guidelines & geometry are great tools to ensure proper proportion & such, capturing the weight of the figure and movement is essential from the onset. Try warming up with some 10 sec gestures to force yourself to see the important information first. If you're used to using pens, try charcoal to let your lines express information as well.
rabbi satan - great job, love how definitive your handling is. i agree with prepsage about trying some looser figures. prepsage - awesome! these are beautiful, delicious liney curvyness. i think maybe in some of the longer ones there is a loss of the sense of where the pelvis is. 0shade0 - great to see those studies. i should probably do those, too =\ lithium logica - congrats on finishing your first 50. i wouldn't use a black bg, some sort of neutral light color is usually good. i notice that you retrace a lot of your lines - try leaving them alone and adding more to each figure seeing as you run out of time before getting to the legs or feet.
