Drawing Practice 3

More gesture drawings, after watching a few youtube videos of people with much more skill than me doing their own gesture drawings. In retrospect, I think the first batch was something of a mess. Just messy lines everywhere. Which is kind of how I still read the instruction from my book, but others are saying to try and make continuous, smooth, long, flowing lines that capture the gesture of the form. That seems more like it will develop skill long-term, so I’m focusing a bit more on economy of line with this batch.


Materials Used: cheap sketchbook and #2 pencil
