Gesturing with Shapes

For this week's gesture drawing class, Louis Gonzales had us draw with thick markers.   His goal was to get us to think in terms of shape and silhouette, instead of line and anatomy.  It was a fun exercise, and one I recommend trying.  The line work in these drawings was done after the fact in an attempt to push and pull the poses... although most of my line work just ended up tracing the shapes.  Im guessing we'll be doing more of these exercises next week.  I'll leave a bunch without lines so you guys can see the purpose of the exercise.
