Sorry this last one is sideways. I think with these last two I got a bit too detailed on the bodies. I need to get more gestural again.

I thought doing line contours and gestures were for just doing different styles, but it’s been surprisingly freeing. When I’m trying to draw quickly and capture the jest of something without fretting the details, it loosens something inside of me and helps me just draw without stopping and erasing so much. I think it’s helping me capture the shape of things better.

I’m not posting my contour line drawing portrait practice. There is something about the human lips and nose that are incredibly difficult, so after I practice a great deal more I’ll post some. But I am practicing. People are just hard.
