    @dierat: thank you very much, I definitely see how the body is awkward, I should have thought a little bit more about the angle of it when I was in the planning stages!

    I can't get myself to sit down and sketch these past couple days, and it's a bad feeling. Too many other things on my mind. Tomorrow's a new day though, I am going to try my very best to get motivated

    Oooooh gestures are IMPROVING! how exciting....And you seem like quite the designer as well, judging from the Trex and some of your earlier stuff. I love the soldier ink drawing. A lot of character to it. The profile rendering you did on page 2 is good, but maybe try pushing the values more, so it isn't as gray (I have to do the same with my own work ). I'd be interested to see what you can do with the style you used on the cat skull, since the soft shading against the hard lines seemed to be working well for you. Keep it up

    I love your gestural drawings. You have a lovely sense of volume and form as well and movement and dynamics.

    @ghast: thank you so much! I really like being told what people think works and what doesn't. I agree about the values being darker, but it's difficult to do with graphite because the darker you make it, the shinier it gets. I'm going to go buy some charcoal pencil and maybe some carbon ones to see how I like them and how far those values can be stretched.

    @Fullmetal Animator: First of all, I love your username. Second, thank you for the compliment, I've been trying really hard at gesture lately. Still need to work on adding form though!


    This morning I found a page full of free art book pdf's, everything from animation to Hogarth to Vilppu. They may be helpful if, like me, you're a poor college student.

    Oh my, somebody actually thinks my name is cool. =^.^=

    Another free to download book you'd be interested in is this one for gesture drawing by Walt Stanchfield. Perfect for drawing key poses or storyboards if you want to go for a loose and rough pen sketch look.

    @Fullmetal Animator: I love that pdf, I have the link posted somewhere in my SB I'm so glad somebody else likes it too. It's really changed the way I think about movement, etc. Thank you.

    I just did some gestures for the first time in a few days and am pretty surprised with how well they came out. I could still loosen up my lines a bit, but taking a break actually seems to have helped. I tried to concentrate on long lines too, not scratchy, broken ones. Looks a lot better! The last one however a twenty-ish minute study, does not look that great. I ruined it with the ink wash.

    Sweet sketchbook! I love how flowly and expressive your work is, it is something I hope to be able to achieve myself someday. Oh and by the way, you mention drawing from your elbow..how exactly is that done? Pardon my brain deadness, I'm a wrist drawer trying to break the habit. XD Drawing from the shoulder has finally clicked for me...well at least I think it has. And when you draw that way do you draw the entire drawing that way or just initially to get the basic shape and form down?

    @twilightmoon777: thank you so much, I still feel like getting my lines flowy and expressive is something that I really need to work on. I've found that studying animation helps a lot. You know, I'm not entirely sure what the "correct" way to draw from your elbow is, but I basically just pretend my wrist isn't able to bend and use my elbow for moving the pencil around (except for tight lines in small spaces that don't really need flowly lines--I draw from the elbow just to get the gesture and forms down, then I tend to switch to tighter wrist drawing for shading. I think anyway, I'll pay more attention to it next time I'm drawing). Unless I'm misunderstanding the entire concept of "drawing from the wrist/elbow/shoulder", I'm pretty sure it's all the same, you're just using different parts of your arm I hope this made some sense.

    So I'm not gonna lie, this is the first week of my summer and I've been partying WAY too hard, which means everything serious has totally fallen by the wayside. But I've done a little bit of work; here's a sample from my batch of gestures I've done. I'm happy with how they're looking! always room for improvement of course, but i'm feeling a little bit better about my ability. Just goes to show what a little bit of practice can do for ya.

    Wow, I really love the final image in the list, especially the side view of the relaxing lady. Do you lay the arrows down before or after you generate the gesture?

    your gestures are coming out really well, much better than I was ever able to achieve. But I would like to some more finished projects!

    Liking the gestures, the lines are so ... i don't know how to describe it , sleek? It seems like they're just made in one swift movement shows a lot of fluidity in my opinion.

    Nice job. What do you use to scan your art? A fax copier?
