So i've been taking about 20 minutes each morning recently to warm up doing gestures. Some of them are from my head, others are from reference but my objective is to try and understand the human form in a dynamic and stylized way. I'm liking the unique structure I am achieving with some of the shapes, not concentrating on traditional accuracy but a more modern and stylistic way to interpret the figure. I want to continue this practice and turn it to a daily ritual. I feel it will be extremely beneficial considering I am planning a graphic novel soon. The better I understand the figure from memory the better I will be at telling a visual story. I also included an ink drawing constructed from one of the gestures, drawing with an ink brush is fun and I don't do it enough. Hope you guys enjoy and any feedback is welcome.
