Hand Gestures at the CTN-X



I attended the CTN-X animation expo this weekend. With all of the great panel discussions going on, it was a perfect time to draw and watch the hand gestures of the different speakers. it seems most people have similar hand/arm movements, but the subtle differences in the tension in the fingers reveal the unique personalities.

I have a big interest in drawing. Sometimes it feels like I have to work too hard to make a drawing. I'm still far from satisfied with them.
I wouldn't be able to draw tensions, or subtle differences. I'm extremely impressed by your ability to do so. It's the details that makes the difference.
Like the sketches.

I believe that I"m capable of mastering the art of drawing if I keep practicing, but to record and illustrate mental images on paper for the brief seconds they were observed is far beyond my anticipations of any form of ascension in art.

I took my time with the picture. Fantastic.

I admire your talent, thanks for sharing it. I have a suggestion for you watch alexander the great and watch his gestures. I like the uppointed finger and Aristotles hand motion.
Keep up your excellent work.

I'm gonna try really hard not to sound weird here, but man, your drawing style is stunning. I'm literally in love with the way you sketch, it oozes sincerity and originality. You just can't teach this or even copy.

yes yes! I had a professor once who bored me entirely except for the fact that his hands...moved, always, and in such interesting ways. Great idea to capture hand gestures. Love your style by the way.
