    Thanks bharat! Here are some more. Also, a couple of people asked me why I don't do a lot of 30 second poses. I'm posting my response here in case someone else may find it useful.

    To me, the goal of gesture drawing is to analyse, experience and capture the action that the figure (or any living being) is performing.

    In many cases I’ve seen the goal of gesture drawing being reduced to drawing a pose fast. While practising to capture an action in a short period of time (30 seconds, 1 minute etc.) surely has its benefits, consider that gesture drawing is defined by the intent of the drawing, not by how fast the drawing is done. I’ve encountered many artists who thought that if they were not able to nail a pose in 30 seconds, they were not good enough. In turn, this mindset also transferred to their imagination drawings, resulting and frustration. In doing character design, I invest a lot of time and thought into a character’s pose. Sometimes up to an hour. The pose needs to convey character. If it doesn’t, it doesn’t matter how fast you drew it.

    Gesture drawing should be about experiencing and understanding how the body is functioning to perform a particular action. And this simply takes time. Especially when dealing with complex poses or multiple figures, I’ve found that just spending 30 seconds or 1 minute on the drawing does not allow me to extract enough information to apply to my drawings from imagination. So my advice is to balance your gesture drawing exercises with both short (30 seconds, 1-3minutes) and long (5-10min) time intervals. The shorter time intervals should help you to see and capture the big picture while the longer intervals allow you to focus more on the nuances of an action. Again, keep in mind that the goal should be to analyse, experience and understand what is happening with the figure, not trying to copy it as fast as you can. Imbuing this experience and understanding into your own drawings is what will make them truly come alive instead of being just a bunch of lines on a surface.

    I went back to one of my favourite subjects for gesture drawing today. The amount of energy and fluidity in these poses makes for a great drawing experience.

    I hope everyone had a great weekend. Here's some more gesture drawing practice. In today's competitive market just being good is not enough. You have to stand out, you have to excel at what you do. And it starts with acquiring the right knowledge. This is really not an area to be lazy in. It pays to know, literally. One of the main differences between a professional and a beginner is the amount of knowledge that they are able to apply to their work. There is no magic or mystery to being a great artist. So let's keep on learning and practising!

    Today I practised adding my own ideas to the reference. The first pose in the row is me drawing what I observe, and the other ones is me pushing design more. I've found that the biggest obstacle in producing great drawings is fear of producing a bad drawing, and in exaggerating, fear of pushing the drawing too far. In my experience, if you have a good understanding of the fundamentals you can always bring the drawing back from being too exaggerated. The moment that you take courage and allow yourself to truly express the ideas that the figure is giving you, your drawings start to achieve a whole new level of interest.
    As you can see below, I started to get more courageous with each iteration. I still can push them way more though, so I'm curious to see where my drawings will end up as I continue to do this exercise.

    They look really good, please post more !

    Happy 2017 everyone! Since we’re looking at a new year, one thing to consider is that success rarely happens by accident. You need to set clear goals and then make a plan to achieve them. Here are some key questions to ask when setting goals:

    • What do I want to accomplish and why?
    • What steps do I need to take to accomplish this goal?
    • What information or resources do I need to successfully take each of these steps?
    • Where can I acquire this information or resources?

    Success a process, not an event. It depends on taking the right steps to accomplish your goal.
