The degree of representation may range from highly detailed, anatomically correct renderings to loose and expressive sketches.
A gesture drawing is a laying in of the action, form, and pose of a model/figure. Typical situations involve an artist drawing a series of poses taken by a model in a short amount of time, often as little as 10 seconds, or as long as 5 minutes.
