Great work, Rev! Your gestures are looking a lot better and definitely have more construction to them. Something that helps me with getting a solid feeling when doing gestures is to to combine rhythms with bone structure, such as the bowing inward of the tibia, or the difference in the gestures of the arm whether the forearm is pronated or supinated, etc. But you seem to be getting along just fine, so keep doing what you're doing.
Your values are starting to be pushed more, which is great, and your edges are starting to reflect this as well. But the contrast between sharp/soft, shadow/light can still be pushed more. I've heard over and over to NEVER use black in shadows, but what I'm finding more and more is that this is bad advice. I think it's more appropriate to say that you use black sparingly, and usually that means only for occlusion shadows. The hands resting on clothing in the reference paintings posted here show this quite nicely, actually. No amount of light can get into where two objects squash up against one another, so there will be some black there. Knowing how much to use is part of good observation.
Keep up the great work, and, as always, i appreciate the comments when you drop by my page!
