Gestures

I’ve never really been to a life drawing class, which seems odd for an art student, so recently I’ve been thinking about going to one when I came across a really cool tool that infinitely doles out random life drawing poses, so I just sketched a bunch!

On each pose I took a maximum of two minutes. With some you can still see the lines of action (or “swooshes” as Joeri Lefevre likes to call them) with which I started the sketch. It’s useful to first capture the motion of the entire body in a single line and then start building up the drawing from there.

Detail on the one I think turned out the best:
