    More Gestural Sketches

    I suppose I apply a wide definition of what a gesture drawing is – if the spirit of the drawing is meant to be gestural, even if the end result becomes too detailed or tight, I think it still counts. While drawing these pages, I was thinking of the “not this / this” photo that is on Proko’s How to Draw Gesture guide*. I agree that the action lines are the quintessential nature of a gesture drawing. I just don’t always get there, hah.
