    ~5,000 Gesture Drawing Challenge~ Learning to Draw SketchBook

    Skip to page 3 for Gestures

    Nov. 29th


    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I always looked at this site but never thought to every post anything up. But here I am ready to make the next step to becoming a better artist! I know I need a lot of improvement but Im willing to put the time and effort to become better. My dream is to become a 3D character animator and with hard work, dedication, and my constant hunger to learn I know that dream will come true one day!!! ☺
    Itís going to be a hard climb up the mountain, but Im ready!
    Excited to post my artwork and watch my progress. I am opened to critiques and any opinions. Happy to join the Concept Art community ☺


    Image: I did this last semester. We worked on it gradually over the semester. Its drawn on mylar paper. On the back drew the bones and on the front drew muscles. Used water color pencils.

    You will have to resize them on your computer. Do you have any programs for that?

    Had a little free time this morning before class. Reference is from Anatomy for the Artist. I really want to be able to get better at drawing portraits. I warmed up my arm like crazy before I started this drawing and kept focusing on staying loose. Big problem I have is not staying loose! :p I like the way it turned out

    good start .. important thing is to be consistent and keep updating regularly ...good studies btw.. if youre into animation you might wanna start drawings some quick gestures for practice.. try going to posemaniacs.com and drawing the quick poses if you dont have access to real life figures.....might help you out.. keep it up !

    dchung: Thanks a lot! And I definitly will post regularly!


    Yup i know about posemaniac, just found out about it a month ago and I love the website. Couldnt go to sleep without drawing from the website. Here a few 30sec gesture drawings. Dont like the way they turned out, need to be more loose. Going to try to make it to the Philly Sketch club tomorrow to get more figure drawing in.

    Here are some quick sketches I did while I was in my Observing Humans class. In class we sit in a big circle so its easier for me to draw people :p
    The weird guy was a new student in the class and he stood right in front of me... O.O

    Here are some sketches I did at the figure drawing class today. People at the Plastics Club are really friendly. Sessions are 3hours. Here are 2 40min poses and 1 20min pose. Dont like the way they turned out. But next time I go I will do better!

    Great start! Stay motivated! Check out the Andrew Loomis books, you can download them online and they're great for learning how to figure draw.

    polarRock- Thanks man! Will definitely stay motivated! I do have all the Loomis books downloaded. Mostly reading and drawing from his chapters on perspective, but I will check out his figure book since you mentioned it.

    Today was a good day to get my mind away from things and re-boot. Here is a crappy self portrait. Need to work on my proportions more!

    At my school every Monday nights we have a free 2 hour figure drawing session. Here are some of the drawings. Today I experimented with ink. I used a pen and a #2 water color brush. We did quick gestures, portraits, and shadow drawings. I plan on experimenting more with ink in the future, I really enjoyed using it Last pic was a memory drawing of anatomy I studied.
