This video is the big one. This is where as an artist you move from describing a figure to defining the figure. In the initial describing sections your lines are stating the direction and relationship of the various forms, but you aren't actually drawing the forms. In this video you are shown how to take a description of a relationship (the relationship of the torso and pelvis) and use it to draw an accurate definition of the actual forms. In the gesture you are drawing what the figure "feels" like, its basic rhythm, but the constructive steps are the actual forms. With the gesture you are implying a figure, but with the forms you are making a statement, the figure exists in space in this way.
