Single figure from the karate journals

Today I share with you a single figure from my karate sketches. This is a gesture drawing done under one minute. The subject is a child in sparring gear, which includes, a helmet, gloves and shoes. I marvel at the balance and rhythms found in the human figure and never get tired of studying this through these observational sketches. In the torso, the spine has an “S” like movement; on the legs, the curvatures of the front of the thighs face the curves of the calves. All these lyrical movements add grace to the standing human form.
