Session #206, Work #204

I still haven’t quite figured out the purpose for gesture drawing. I have heard some say that its supposed to “loosen you up” for the longer drawings. I’m not sure how accurate that is considering the longer drawings don’t use long fluid strokes or attempt to describe the figure in just ¬†few lines. I know gesture drawing is used throughout the study of a future animator, so I still wonder why its important for me. I don’t question that it must hold some importance for my progression as an artist, but the only thing that I can garner from it currently is that I suck at it.
