Gesture assignment

Posted Jan 17, 2018, 4:52:03 AM

I'm taking an online class from Proko.com for figure drawing and these are some of my studies for the first assignment on gesture. I'll be posting this to the facebook group for feedback.

I believe these are all 2 minute studies.

      yeah he's really good! My main figure drawing mentor/teacher in school was a little hard to understand. he spoke in metaphors all the time and, being the literal person I am, I had trouble understanding most of what he said haha. Proko keeps it simple and direct. And humorous

        In metaphors? How do you use metaphors on life drawing? O.o

          Like he'd use expressions and metaphors to help you remember things. Like for example he'd use large squarish tootsie rolls to demonstrate the shapes for toes. and he'd say things like "tom dick and harry" for muscles in the lower leg:
          T: tibialis posterior
          D: flexor digitorum longus
          H: flexor hallucis longus

          and there was something to do with halitosis and putting your foot in your mouth would give you halitosis and that was supposed to help you remember something about a muscle that starts with 'h' but i don't remember. haha.

            I think maybe if you were born in his era that those may have stuck better D:
