Gesture (Hug)

A few remains from the end of the year.
I'm posting mostly quick gestures these days to focus on what loose drawing can produce. See also Quick And Nervous.
Quick = reaction = dynamic drawing.
All details can be worked on top or on an overlay. I don't worry about a good looking drawing at this stage. I am concerned with the pose 'feeling' right while I am sketching it - lines that describe the act rather than the features of the model.

Quick and Nervous

I have been busy with a project so I haven't posted much lately.
Here are a couple of favorites from a recent pad.

This is a favorite quirky, quick gesture. Just simple line, as fast as I could get it down.
Forget the details, just get the pose.

This one was just a riff on the model's pose.
She looked nervous so I just played it up.

Both sketches are Prismacolor on newsprint.

I'll try to get on it soon.
