Gesture Drawing Class (Weeks 4 and 5)

Hope everyone is doing well out there!  Below are my results from Weeks 4 and 5 of Mark McDonnell's gesture drawing class at the Animation Guild in Burbank.  Mark has been encouraging us to push our drawings more (using basic principles of design, shape, value, composition, silhouettes, etc.)...and to have more fun overall.

Keep up the great work! I'm really liking how your shapes are still feel very solid, but have a vitality to it. These definitely look like a lot of fun!

Great gestures again! Do you still make it out to the Drawing Club sessions? Or does this guild class usually fill your gesture quota for the week?

Viv said...

– C. Deboda: Hey Chris! Thanks for your note - hope you're doing well! I haven't made it out the Drawing Club for the past several weeks...but I'm hoping to go back soon, once things get a little less busy. Are you going to most of them? Let's keep each other posted! Hope you're doing well. Cheers :)
