      Thanks Mario! If it is inspiring other artists then it's serving its purpose :).

       

      Here's the finished motion study. These can really give your mind a work out. I have to admit that drawing a motion with drapery seemed a bit daunting at first, but I reminded myself that the same principles of movement for the body also apply to the drapery. You just need to analyse how it's reacting to the energy of the movement and simplify it into forceful shapes to keep it fluid during the whole motion.

      More fun stuff! I'm still learning more about the design of the human body everyday I study it.

      Last year I decided to start doing my gesture drawings sessions digitally and collect them in a manual. Actually that was not my intention at the start. I just wanted some digital gesture drawings to use for my tutorials among other things. It took some getting used to in the beginning since I was accustomed to do them on paper. As I started to produce more pages and other artists seemed to like it I thought: “Hey, why not make a PDF file out of these so other artists can download them and keep them around as inspiration?” And so the Gesture Drawing Demonstrations manual was born. And today I drew page 181.

      Even in this large collection of drawings, there are a select few that stand out as my favorites. I challenged myself to pick out my top five and explain why they stand out for me.

      Some drawings from today's session. After all these drawings I'm still seeing a lot of improvement. One thing in particular that I'm focusing more on lately is to capture the big picture of what is happenning before I start being concerned with details. Have a nice weekend!
