These are quick gestural figures drawn from one or two minute nude poses. For those who of you don't know, figure drawing is the art of drawing the human...you guessed it! Figure! Haha anyways, the life of a figure is in the gesture, or the motion of the pose. This is the first thing that should be laid down and then if there's time build on top of it. No matter how good the rendering and shading of a figure drawing, without a good underlying gesture the drawing will ultimately fall flat.
