Thanks for commenting, your own recent gestures combine form and motion quite nicely, and with line economy. The shading reinforces this quite well by showing where different parts are facing. Really like the characters attitude that show through.
I've drawn a few more dozens of these gestures and again can only marvel at just how little I have been considering the whole 2D design thing until now. I thought with a central axis and basic volumes I would eventually gravitate towards an outline that shows form, with somewhat passable proportions. Yet it seems those volumes must themselves be firmly grounded in the actual contour of the figure, or the volume information that this contour represents.
