This week’s gestures

With a little lesson from the hypertalented Tom Gately: Push angles! Gesture drawing isn’t about copying the pose … but expressing its essence. These two drawings below make the point better than words can.

    Cool sketches Enrico, and it’s always a good reminder to push the angles in a pose – I find I often have my lines go too up-and-down rather than see how the pose could actually be made more clear by exaggerating the essential angles.
    I remember seeing Tom’s sketches on this blog (or possibly the sketchcrawl blog) a while ago – so simple and direct, they totally communicate :)
