Figure Drawing/Gesture Sketches - Mini Compliation






These are just a few gesture/figure sketches i've been working on in my little Moleskine sketchbook. It's actually a large by their standards but its small compared to the other sketchbooks I've lugged around over the years. 

These are some from Bridgman's Complete Guide to Drawing from Life and How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way by Stan Lee and Joe Buscema. I really like the simple composition of the second photo, its very simple yet somewhat dynamic. I don't know, it seems pretty cool to me. :]

 I seem to always come back to this Bridgman book, ever since my first experience with drawing in sketchbooks. It seems to be a staple reference point among the art community. There is a lot more figure drawing/sketches coming soon, but in the mean time: Anyone else read these books or draw from them? What has your experience been?
