1.1 Introduction

Welcome to Dynamic Gesture Drawing. In this course I will help you take your drawings to the next level by studying motion and emotion and learning how to express these topics in your drawings. I'll also show you how I add tone and color when taking a gesture drawing from pencil drawing to full color. I hope you enjoy the course.

1.1 Introduction

Hi, welcome to Dynamic Gesture Drawing. My name is Brian Lee and I'll be your instructor for this course. I'm a multimedia artist with an extensive background in fine arts as well as many forms of digital art. I produce and sell my own artistic creations including children's books, custom portraits of people and landscapes, and I also work as a freelance concept artist and map painter for feature films and television. In this course, I will focus on teaching you the fundamentals of gesture drawing, and how they can be applied to build life-like portraits and stylized characters of your own artistic creations. I'm hoping you will walk away from this course with a strong set of tools that you can use to draw pretty much anything. This includes how to break complex and dynamic objects into simple shapes. How to examine and build a human body to produce life-like drawings not exaggerate and transform your drawings into images that tell a story. At the end of the course, we will look at how to apply tone and color to get your gesture drawings ready for a professional profile of this. Finally, I hope you have fun at this course you learn a lot. For each lesson, there's an exercise at the end that I hope will help you practice what you learn along the way. And if you do have an extra questions along the way, feel free to send me an email Brianleearts@gmail.com or check out my website for more information about me, brianleearts.com. So thanks for joining me out, hope to see you in the course.
