Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Gesture Drawings Anyone?

Gesture drawings are an important part of my routine as they set the tone for the rest of the drawing session. I use them to gauge which medium I will use and what the emphasis will be for the night. And I give myself the liberty of trying new things and the freedom to fail outright. I think that gesture drawing tends to get short shrift because everyone wants to get to a finished product but I love seeing the these types of drawings from other artists because they give insight into their process. For me, the drawings are more visceral and emotional because you only have a few minutes to get the essence of the pose down. They're also just fun.

I put multiple poses on one sheet to give a sense of motion (and to save paper). 1-5 minutes.

These are some of mine:

Re: Gesture Drawings Anyone?

I love the first and the idea of having two drawings on the same sheet with different colors.

I really like 1 and 3...and the idea of saving paper.

I can see where you get your feel for line from. You might be interested in seeing Patricia A Hannaway's gesture drawings.

I like the use of multiple gestures on one page. It makes the page so active.

These are really lively. I particularly like the texture in the third page.
