    I'm liking the fluidity of your gestures, you'll be at your number in no time. Are you a Naruto fan by chance?

    Farrr out, 1000 pages. That's insane man! There's already a massive improvement in your gestures - you're starting to nail the muscle masses in a few strokes.. I can see that in the middle of page 22, to the right of the middle dot. His arm is so well done in effortless strokes.. by the 1000 page you're going to be incredible! Keep going mann!

    B-Man: Hey thanks You're right, of course. Must work on balance of the figure... which means I need to check verticals/horizontals.

    Thank you for visiting my SB

    Valve: Hehe 8) Sort of a Naruto fan. You got the reference, eh?

    thanks!

    corza334 Hey, I appreciate that. I'm just trying to get the action at this point. If the muscle masses are popping out of there somehow, that's purely a bonus... lol. Thanks for your assessment.

    Things are still pretty rough; I find myself going back over the gesture sometimes a few times... sometimes I can't find the center line action, etc... but I am finding that starting gestures immediately puts my mind in right-brain mode... e.g. I feel my eyes begin to focus on the pencil tip, and the brain chatter goes silent.

    That's good, anyway. But I gotta work harder at nailing these things.

    I would like to state that you're probably the most ambitious person I've ever seen with this sort of thing. Secondly, you have got SERIOUS gesture drawing skillz ... yes so many you need a "z" at the end

    I WISH I could do gesture this well... My art would probably be about 100 times better then it is now haha. Great GREAT stuff

    You got some good foundation work on the go here, I gotta say. You've got a pretty good eye for form already, and it's good that you're taking a structural approach. That'll stand you well in the future.

    I like your gestural stuff. Have you tried doing it with a time limit?

    Great stuff! I need to work on gestures myself so I don't have any advice, but keep it up.

    Wow. A lot of replies today.

    Burdie: Thank you for the return visit!

    X@v: Cool! Glad to have your critical eye. Thanks a lot!

    Dr.Blindsy: Well... I'm trying to learn it anyway Still trying to find the lines, but I think I'm getting it. There are glimpses of enlightenment here and there. Thank you

    Nezumi Works: Thank you. I haven't tried with a time limit yet, because in my case I think it would lead to sloppiness and a disconnect in the brain. Once I understand the concept and start to see things right, I think speed will happen. Then I'll try the 30 second rapid-fire stuff.

    Thanks again!

    hellfiresniper: Yeah, give that stuff a shot. I think it will help you tremendously. Thanks!

    I am starting to see the main action line easier, though I'm still tending to draw "outlines" for the limbs... which actually is helpful in the end, because it leads the eye back to the action lines. I think another few weeks of pure action line gesture, and I'll be able to start adding simple forms.

    Wowzerz. Gestures are looking great, and I can see improvement already. One thing I can point out is that the figures have a pretty good sense of balance. Keep it up man!

    I went back to the man, Vilppu himself, and checked out his gesture instruction again. I picked up some things that I think are helping. 1) His metaphor of the river, and the flow of the water being just like gesture... the water doesn't flow necessarily parallel to the bank. 2) He emphasized to "feel" the action.

    I tried to do both of those things, as well as work on proportion some more... and I think a few of the gestures here are starting to get there.

    Your analysis of Villpu is helpful. It makes a lot of sense, and is poetic so it has to be right. Keep em' gestures coming!
