Join Von Glitschka for an in-depth discussion in this video Gesture drawing, part of Illustrator for Non-Illustrators.
- [Instructor] In this movie,…we'll use gesture drawing to capture…the emotion and movement needed…to create dynamic visuals.…Before we start,…I suggest you shrug your shoulders,…loosen up your drawing arm by shaking it a bit…because we're after elegant flow,…not rigid precise drawing.…So, this sketch you see in front of you…is a historically famous one by master artist…Paul Cézanne and it's one of his gesture sketches…from his own sketch book.…
Now, gesture drawing is all about capturing…the emotion and movement and not specific form…and contour of the subject you're drawing.…This applies to any subject you want to draw.…So, let's take a look at one.…Here's a pitcher, a baseball player,…a picture of a pitcher throwing a baseball…and we're going to take a look at…how would you capture a gesture drawing of this character.…So, let's go ahead and turn him to gray.…We're going to go ahead and use this brush here…and once again, it's not about the…exactitude of form here,…it's emotional.…
It's about capturing movement and form…
