Gesture Drawing

ITT: practice gestures

What's gesture drawing? It's practicing the particular skill of capturing the shapes and movements of a figure. It's a good way to get better at drawing a whole character in dynamic poses that have proper anatomy. It's also supposed to be quick and simple so you can practice a lot. You can also incorporate gesture drawing into composing larger or more complex pictures by drafting the positions and poses of the subjects with minimal commitment. If you want to get good at drawing, it's good to practice regularly with gesture drawing. Just sit down for a couple of minutes now and then and sketch a few poses.

Edit , Lineart and Coloring Thread

Edit Thread
Post, request and make image and drawing edits and colorations. Instructions and templates also welcome.

>Spoiler NSFW content
>Be specific as possible so you get your request right the first time, that means really pour over your pic and think about it
>Don't complain too much about the final product, after all you're getting your request for free whereas most artists not only charge money, but would also be too moralfag to edit another artist's work
>Try and find the highest resolution of the pic as you can, because not only are you getting better quality, you're also helping make more accurate edits
>Post your request with names/authors/copyrights, references and links in one post. Cite the image source
>You should probably use Photoshop, and make special use of the 'spot healing brush' tool when it comes to removal requests.
>ALWAYS save as .png ; everytime you save as .jpg/.jpeg the final product LOSES quality and data. Stop this shit, please. Doesn't matter if the original pic you're editing was in .jpg/.jpeg format, you save as .png because it's lossless
>If you have to make a transparent crop/edit whatever of a specific character/object on a layer, always save the individual layers seperately for upload before saving the whole thing together for the final product to be uploaded. This accomplishes multiple things: 1. it allows different backgrounds and such to be edited in for later and 2. It allows either you, another editfag, or the requester to go back and change something if you didn't quite do the request right the first time. No one wants to layer-via-cut the main character and merge it with the background only for the requester to ask that you go back and do it again because it wasn't the background they wanted, because then you have to cut the lines YET AGAIN and that would be tedious; don't forget to upload the layers as seperate files when you're done
>Upload your delivery/edit onto the booru(s) https://colordump.booru.org https://4edit.booru.org/index.php?page=post&s=list

>How to do a color edit

- Open your preferred image editor.
- Apply "multiply mode" on layer 1 (the original picture).
- Apply colors on layer 2 (below layer 1).
>How to remove colors:
- Open in GIMP, add alpha channel,
- Select by color and delete.
can also use Paint Tool SAI2

Counter poise technique in amogus sculpture

How may we apply the counter poise (contrapossa) technique to amogus sculpture? I specifically have in mind the more slight rotation common in classical Greek sculpture
Before the Romans got real extra on it and the Renaissance artists turned it into a windmilling limbs and craning necks free for all. Such is the price of modernist positivism lol
I think the frame of the amogus subject may make this application difficult as it is rather smooth and divisions of the torso are not apparent, nor does there appear to be twisting and bending in the torso from movement, so this is rather atypical of a human subject. I believe we have to carefully study the anatomy and of the amogus and how the joints pivot in locomotion. Perhaps there is something more subtle that is not readily apparent to the human eye. Does anyone have a reliable diagram of a typical amogus subject? I have seen a lot of amogus pornography, but I am of the view that the artistic license is used at the expense of a realistic representation of amogus. Thoughts?
