Busy, Busy, Busy (but still had time for art!)


Gesture drawings / Concepts for Orianna fan art piece (All imagined)

Today was a mishmash of time. The morning seemed free and open, then the afternoon hit and I found myself saying “I won’t have time for anything.” Luckily my wife and I got to go enjoy an evening wandering and having good conversation. The night seemed to meander on and before we knew it, it was 9pm. Well luckily, I hung out with my cousin very early this morning and we both were steady arting for a couple of hours. Now a lot of people ask what can you get done in just a couple of hours?

Well, how about an intense gesture drawing session and planning for my league of legends piece? I also did an exercise where I could only use 5 lines total to draw 30 second poses. That was tough, but it taught me about economy of line (using minimal lines) in gesture.

All subsequent poses were 60 seconds a piece whereas all of my previous gesture sessions were a minimum of 2 minutes a piece. Now, that may sound like not a lot of time and you’re right, but the point is being able to get gesture in minimal amounts of time without over thinking, or over analyzing your strokes.
