P114 – Project Gesture – Exercise: Energy

Ask your model to adopt a dynamic position – lifting an arm, turning the head … – and to hold the pose for about five minutes. … Quickly sketch the figure, trying to convey the sense of energy each pose creates.





Check and Log:

How well have you managed to capture the pose? What could be improved?
I’m happy with most considering how quickly they were drawn. I’m particularly pleased with the final walking pose. The obvious exception is the middle one above. (It was meant to be ‘Charge!’ with sword in hand!) The outstretched arm is completely wrong.

Do you think that your figures balanced? If not where did you go wrong?
