These are tasks are geared towards a broad range of art learning focused on the human figure.
Copying is one thing, but as creative artists we want to express our figures and have them tell a story or communicate a message to the viewer. We draw figures in almost everything so having the ability to portray them in an engaging way is extremely important. These art practice tasks are designed to do just that, but solving tasks with principles that will encourage you to approach drawing in a way that will help you become more expressive.
There are two categories Gesture and Poses. 'Gesture' focuses on the expression, movement, soul and emotion being portrayed through the figure, whereas 'Poses' focuses on learning the human form from multiple angles in perspective.
When you practice them both and bring them together, you can expect to be able to draw fantastical dynamic and engaging characters. The video tutorial on Gesture and Figure drawing demonstrates the process of learning.
These Gesture Drawing art tasks will help you to think about the expression of a pose, and how to portray emotion. You'll be prompted to focus on tasks like the shape and silhouette of a pose, exaggeration or adding a sense of space to existing images. There is a time limit included in this, so it forces you to really capture the essence quickly, because correct anatomy is not the purpose of these learning tasks.
These tasks encourage you to explore comic character poses, because they already have a lot of the gestural principles incorporated into them. From studying existing poses of Comic characters, you can reverse engineer and break them down to learn about their proportions, dynamic pose type, silhouette and so on.
