Lots of Gesture Drawing!

"The study of gesture is not simply a matter of looking at the movement that the model makes.  You must also seek to understand the impulse that exists inside the model and causes the pose which you see."
Straight to the point, this thought from Kimon Nicolaides is taken from his famous book "The Natural Way To Draw".  Check out these examples of gesture drawings from past APW students who have studied and incorporated gesture drawing into their drawing practise.  The drawings are by Aaron Lun, Gabriel Arrellega, Alexanne Boisonneau, Kevin Oh, Rajesh N. Pai, Auguste Chang, Sonia Furier (presently teaching Life Drawing for Animation at APW), Vlad Mokhov, Samantha Tran, Kendra Witherspoon.
