60 second gestures

Gesture drawing, 2.15.17

Gesture drawing, 2.15.17

I’m not even sure how long it’s been since I’ve done any gesture drawings, but they’re always good practice, & always a good thing to do when I don’t have a ton of time!

4 days of gesture drawings and anatomy studies

Anatomy Studies of the Arm, 4.27.15

Anatomy Studies of the Arm, 4.27.15

The past few days have been really busy, and I’m sorry for not updating!  However, I have definitely been drawing at least a little everyday.  In this post, I’m including 3 days of gesture drawings (this past Friday, Saturday & Sunday) as well as some quick anatomical studies of the arm as you can see from above, which I drew from Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist.

A hand, gesture drawings, & a couple other random things

Hand Drawing in Pen, 4.16.15

Hand Drawing in Pen, 4.16.15

Last night was kind of a meh night for me for drawing – I only have 3 gesture drawings, which I’ll show below.  To make up for my pathetic offering, I’m first starting with this drawing of a hand that I did at a work-related workshop today.  I actually drew this one in light pencil first, then outlined & detailed with a few different Micron pens – including a “brush” pen, which I really liked for nice, thick lines.  I guess this one turned out ok, but it’s probably not my best hand.  I was kind of rushed, though.

A couple bad mannikins & some gesture drawings

Andrew Loomis Mannikin, 4.14.15

Andrew Loomis Mannikin, 4.14.15

Hoo boy, I chose a couple difficult positions for my mannikin drawings last night.  I only did two – I had so little time, so it generally seems like on those kinds of nights, focusing on these &/or gestures is a good idea.  Anyways, it was a bit rough.  Some obscured limbs, not really seeing the shapes of the figure properly, etc.

Weekend fawn & more gestures, of course

Fawn Drawing, 4.12.15

Fawn Drawing, 4.12.15

Hello hello!  I’m almost halfway through my month of daily drawing & daily music writing, & so far I’ve been keeping up. The fawn drawing above is what I did on Sunday – I drew it in pencil first & then detailed it in ink with my Micron pens.  I think it turned out pretty decent, but one thing I had a hard time with was the fawn’s spots & color variations in its fur.  I didn’t want to add too many pen strokes, but I still wanted to try & show where the color was darker, lighter, shading, etc.  I also didn’t go for as bold of an outline as I have in the past.

Just some more gestures

Gesture Drawings, 4.7.15

Gesture Drawings, 4.7.15

I’ve been sick the past couple of days, hence the gesture drawings over the more time-consuming drawings.  Tonight’s looking like another long night – I’m going to try & do something other than gestures (or something in addition to gestures) if I can get around to it.  And I hope to get back to responding to comments & reading other peoples’ posts in a more timely manner soon!
