    Gestures Critique, Please?..

    Hello!


    Can you please critique my gesture drawings? I'm not new at drawing, but it seems like I'm stuck at some point, and my art is not improving any more. Gestures is the thing that I'm struggling with now - they just don't look good enough, and I don't know why.


    Any tip would be much appreciated!

    Not bad at all! I suggest you study a simplified mannikin, for instance Loomis', and base your gestures on that. It really helps to gesture in correct proportion, and is a great foundation for anatomy.

    Thank you!))
    I used to study Loomis, though not very thoughtfully, and should definitely go back to basics.
    Proportions are the biggest problem for me. I usually can see that something is off, but can't say what exactly. Even when I have a reference with proper proportions next to my drawing, I still can't see where I did wrong. It's a kind of "proportion blindness", or what.((

    You're right. These are pretty stiff. Get the book 'Force Dynamic Life Drawing For Animators.' It will change the way you draw.
