Course description

What exactly is gesture anyway?

Gesture, rhythm, motion, action, flow – these are all words that are used interchangeably and they basically mean the same thing.

They all refer to the movement between things. It’s not the contour, or the form, or the tone. It’s the movement that connects the contours, the forms and the tones.

It’s simple to understand, but difficult to put into practice when you’re actually drawing a human figure. We’re so tempted to draw the details of the anatomy and all the little bumps of the contour because we think that detail will make our drawing look better. In this lesson you'll learn how to draw gesture.

These premium lessons include the extended versions of free videos, many examples of each lesson and critique videos. Videos are uncensored (meaning there is nudity!).

course was very very helpful, although I wished the models were a little bit decent (covering the breast and the penis, and pubic) I mean at least wearing skin color ballet suit for example. I know many would disagree, but you should be considering the differences of cultures and religions of people who subscribe to SVS

Stan Prokopenko is charismatic, explains clearly and talks at a good pace. There are somewhere around 50 poses to practice from for your gesture, given in 30-second and 2-minute drills. Stan helps with his own version right beside the model. Helpful stuff.

I thought I was quite good when it came to the sketching of people. Now I realize how much I still have to learn. Catching a gesture with a few clear lines is a challenge. I found myself scribbling and evading single lines all the time. I'm definitely improving, but this is something one really has to do regularly over a longer period of time. Worth every minute.

I've taken several courses with Proko and it is worth the price. He's an awesome teacher with a great quality. Class is easy to follow. A must have.

Artist and Instructor

Hey there! My name is Stan Prokopenko, I’m an artist and teacher. Proko is a resource for artists to get good art instruction videos.

When you watch Proko tutorials you’ll notice that I try to make them entertaining while keeping them educational. I feel that if you’re having fun and enjoying the learning process, you learn better. You retain more information, you pay more attention, you’re much more likely to continue learning and more likely to go back and re-watch tutorials. And it will leave you more inspired and motivated to go practice.
