More Gestures with Dave Pimentel

Photobucket


At work, my friend and coworker Dave Pimentel teaches a bi-weekly gesture class on alternating Mondays.  He's always an inspiration to work under; quick with a spot-on critique and even quicker with a brush pen.

The above are a collection of one-, two-, and five-minute poses from last Monday.  Drawn in Sharpie on regular ole computer paper; tone added in post, thanks to a little 'shoppery.

Very cool. Of course the one of the zorro guy baking is my favourite! really awesome caricatures and exaggeration or shapes in there. Very inspirational. Also cool how youve displayed them here! Howd you do that?

Stephen Anderson said...

I dig it Mr. Holden! Looks like it was fun! I love the simplicity to the line and shape, but also the exaggerated gesture and such like "Gillibean" said. Coolio.

Awesome. These are so great.

These are all very cool!
I like the gestures and the clean look :)
I wish I could take that class!

Cheers,
Junko

Love them Anthony. Could you explain to me how you do that with your drawings? How they appear in sequence? I could use that when posting storyboards.

these are fantastic. the one where he's baking cookies is hilarious. :)

Aminder Dhaliwal said...

My mind keeps making a connection between the cookies and the dead girl in the image rotation haha

Anthony Holden said...

I'm surprised you're the first one to pick up on that--clearly the cookies were poisoned.
