My name is George McCrudden. I'm 24 and I have never drawn anything outside of stick figures in my life. I'm a complete newbie to art and I have never considered learning it until recently. I started reading and doodling gesture work a few weeks ago, and as I am pushing myself hard at learning, I decided to come here to post for critique, advice and generally learn from others.
I'm doing daily studies, mostly on gestures via. Quickposes. I'm no good yet, but I am very persistant. I'd love any critique and/or assistance in becoming a great artist. I want no shortcuts.
Here are my late night gestures. 30 seconds a piece. I find some poses difficult. My main problem is going from basic line gestures into forming an actual body. I also have problems with judging proportions.
