I think that it is going to take some practice to get some meaningful "real" gesture drawings down, but I am working on it! Thanks for stopping by!
30 second gestures, was trying to feel the actions in my gestures, but falling on my face in the process... Beh. Keep practicing, keep practicing. Le sigh.
5 min drawings. Trying to have meaningful lines, less sketchy messiness. I think it's going... okay.

I REALLY love those anatomy studies, they look so dynamic =].
Your 5 minute gestures are looking quite clean, you have a great act in drawing what you see, I love that ^_^
I'm a peacock, you gotta let me fly!

The anatomy studies are looking great. You seem to be going pretty hard, I like it. Keep this rhythm and you will be surprised by how quickly your work will evolve.

I'm impressed with all the work you're doing! I'm diggin' the line work on the last couple of images, too.
For your color issue from a few days: did you figure it out?-is it the mode that the image is in? In the Menue, look at "Image" -> "Mode" -> and make sure it's in RGB. Does that make sense?
Keep on Keepin-on .

Keep it up!

I've just been looking through your sketchbook and you can see improvement which is great one thing I have noticed is that in quite a lot of your drawings you use 'scratchy' lines, or draw several lines where only one is really needed. I realise these are mostly in your quicker drawings, but I think it'd really help you if you tried to use fewer lines, or just quickly consider where you'll put the line down before you do it, and reist drawing more into it, I think it's line economy or something. Saying that, I really love your lines in those 5 minute poses poses from your last update, you should try applying that to your quicker sketches. Keep up the hard work

In my experience, they are many things. To me, lines (too many or too few) do not necessarily matter because they are not "finished" pieces, merely "warm ups" or studies, also because from what I can gather from my recent readings upon gestures is that you're trying to capture the motion and "essence" of the figure, not necessarily the figure itself.
However, from seeing other people's gestures on this site, there are many definitions and types. But maybe they are not traditional gestures? I see a lot of contour lines when people say they're doing "gestures". I do this too, but on my longer studies (5mins+).
I am still trying to get down "gesture" drawing, and trying to draw the motion and activity of the figure. It's seemingly difficult for me. Haha! Also, trying to figure out the proper placement and posture for drawing on a digital tablet for optimum arm movement. Any suggestions on this?
Thank you so much for stopping by! And leaving some ideas! I will implementing your idea and see if it works out for me!
