Gesture drawings Day 2

Daily Art 10-03-17 gesture studies of animals

I thought the pencils lines on yesterday’s drawings got a little dark and heavy so today I started out by using a 2H pencil. The lines were definitely lighter, but I lost some of the looseness I felt with the 2B lead. Not sure why exactly…maybe when I put the lines down the visual and tactile feedback were different enough to throw me off. After switching back to the same mechanical pencil with 2B lead as yesterday, things improved.

The foreshortened animal poses are definitely more challenging for me at this stage. The bear in the lower left is awkward looking because of this.

I’m noticing that sometimes the tail on animals is a part of the overall gesture line which is fascinating.
