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.

like this
drawing with mouse sucks lol


>tfw araki used almost exclusively eurocentric art as references for his poses



To be fair the humanist art that obsessed over anatomical representation was a pretty european thing. Different cultures had different priorities. If anything that influence has more to do with manga as a whole taking influence from western styles and Araki (and others) working to meet that stylistic preference.


Honestly this ought to have gone into the HTD section


The oekaki makes it really easy to just sit down and pop some of these out, and they might clog up a more general learning thread. Repetition is the key, so practicing these could generate a lot of posts.


Holy shit THANK YOUUUUU SO MUCH for this thread OP
I was thinking of making it myself, because I really need to practice this, we all do probably


what's that?

nta and not an artist or anything but I like this sculpture of Nisus and Euryalus
Based on the Aeneid, a later sequel of the Homeric Iliad and Odyssey written by Virgil.
Nisus and Eurylus were gay lovers and warriors, and after Euryalus steals his.glistening helmet, they are killed in overly brutal fashion.
Their story represents growing up, and becoming a man, and the fate that all men must face whether they are prepared or not.

Good contribution. A set of references to get multiple people to draw is good.

p sure it's referring to the How To Draw thread here >>416


oh I made that thread, lol
But I alaso wanted to make a separate thread like this, to post our gesture drawings, it's definitely a separate topic.

I think I'll draw some gestures today (hopefully)
Have some pages from "Figure Drawing: Design and Invention" by Michael Hampton (get the full book at your local people's internet library)

Thanks lol, it's just Churuya's Nyoro~n face


Didn't mean to sage though
