    Gesture Drawing

    Hey guys,

    I'm a big fan of gesture drawing. I practice it from time to time.

    I developed this website so I could do gesture drawing more easily. It's online for anyone to use if they want.

    This week will be it's first anniversary. To celebrate it I developed a special new feature.
    Check it out @ Quickposes.com

    Tell me what you think, if you have feedback or ideas please share !

    Ciao !

    Good job man - I didn't check it out too thoroughly but it looks like another great resource. (Not sure the certificate thing is worth your effort but...up to you) How many images do you have?

    What would Caravaggio do?

    This is great! Very helpful,Thank you!
    I have a question.
    Is there a way to put no time limit? I know that there is no time limit on random poses, but I'm interested in men poses, so is there a way to choose that the randomposes I get are only from male models? or maybe stopping the timer on the gesture ones ?

    Great resource!

    I'll spread the word to the Spartan Camp (under community activities), which is an activity dedicated to gesture drawing.

    Spend 20 mins on it and saw some great photo's. Thanks a mil!

    Small bit of feedback: would be even better if there was a way to manually skip to the next or previous pic.

    I considered that option a couple of times but I always felt people should just draw the pose regardless of preference.

    @ARshes_nei
    Ryan's work is amazing.

    @self-epidemic
    You are welcome !

    @Charlie-d
    Thx man !

    I hate you, Verx. Now I have to get the book.

    Btw, does the book has any notes on construction and anatomy?

    Also, I see this is "Vol. 3", and I search around but there's no "Vol. 1" or "Vol 2".

    @The idle Elke
    Good luck !

    @jFierce
    You're weclome !

    @Sporus
    Thx, I hope you enjoy the site !

    @Xeon_OND
    It focusing more on figurative gesture drawing than anatomy.
    I couldn't find vol 1 or 2 either. I think it might be just one book but updated a third time.

    I agree with you but in my opinion, as the owner of a website (even if it's free) you should consider what people want more than what you think people need ^^

    For the certificate thing, it can be a psychological motivation for some, so why not.

    Thx for the feedback. I'm think about it one more time. Maybe a skip pose button would be a handy function.
