Recent Figure Drawings

Some Gestures

5 minute gestures. I haven't sat down and really concentrated on gesture for some time. It was extremely frustrating, but to focus on purely tracing the figure was quite refreshing. When I was a just a wee lad I was always noodling the life right out of my drawings in the attempt to make them as realistic as possible. It wasn't until college that I was challenged to interpret, and it was shortly there after that my brain melted. I've always had a very hard time loosening up and still do. I get in and focus directly on the details. Most of drawing sessions consist of me slapping my hand and saying "Yo, cornhole, loosen up!"
