    A few more, i think thats enough haha

    Zombie_chinchilla I recommend you to use less lines, with that i mean, try to express the movement of the body with a few strokes, and then part from that to give proportion and more shape to it, i hope it helps you!

    Cheers!

    Anthis: I agree completely Didn't feel like I had a good flow with those rough brushes, and couldn't decide what to focus on. But for the longer value studies I had a clearer goal, and it went a little easier.

    Made a few scribbly ones, and I feel that I managed to keep a stronger focus with these. I like this assignment.

    I BSed - no values here this time, a scant offering. But I have 15 more gestures to do, and then some scribbly ones.

    I'll provide full crits on Monday.

    Whoahoohooaa...such a lot of nice work here! I'm gonna have to comment a bit later. I'm off to the shop to buy a new PC (if I find something within budget). I'm dissapointed I didn't do last weeks' assignement. I was on a 7 day shift, and just didn't get around to do it. This week I was on an early shift so got to go to life drawing again which I posted up below. Today I did some digital gestures and the scribble assignment, love the scribble assignment! Going to have to integrate this into my normal gestures. Probably going to do some gestures from imagination later on like a few of you do so well.

    i really love this scribble technique. Will start doing this often, it's a good warm up too, hopefully loosen up my drawings.
    Using pictures from the olympics, great for exaggerated gestures.

    Alright guys -- I'm done. Do the scribble gestures count towards the 50 gesture count?

    Not impressed with myself this week.
    Will do more with a longer time limit I think.

    1, Scribble styles from watching 'live' dressage.
    2, 30 - 60 seconds.
    5, 5mins.

    I really enjoyed the scribbly gestures this week, I decided to keep everything fast and loose, with the scribbles at the end once I'd loosened up.

    a lot of great work in this thread!

    Littlebones: Those are great, but the outlined torso you have in several of them are ruining the motion. try to avoid flattening the forms so much. The value studies have very hard contrasts. it works for the backlit man, but the big white areas on the women make them look flat. Try to reserve the pure white for highlights only.

    Animare: I like the live scribble studies. The positioning of the horses legs conveys the motion nicely. The tennis players are a little stiff. Your linework on the 5 min drawings is very straight. Maybe you could incorporate some of the curved lines from the fast gestures too make them move better?

    J8stine: I like how confident your linwork looks in those first ones. And the scribbles look great. Maybe you should be more mindfull of the values when doing color gestures. They don't look like they have enough contrast.

    Here are some more I did today. Playing around with scribbles and drawing a few faces. I liked the look of combining some loose scribbles with a few broader lines to model the forms slightly.

    the color study took an hour probably. A bit longer than I was planning, but I struggled with the color and ended with it being much too saturated and orange.
