    Hi all,

    I've been practicing gesture for the past two weeks with the timer set to 40 seconds per image. Links to a pic of some gestures I drew today the stack of drawings I've done so far.

    I'm afraid I might have just been wasting time and instilling bad habits after watching a few conflicting videos on YouTube. I try to focus on capturing the movement of the lines and the result is some terrible proportions. In some sketches I can't even tell what I've drawn. Overall I'm feeling a little frustrated and tired.

    What is the right approach to gesture drawing? How can I improve and will good proportions come with more practice? Thank you all so much!

    Hi there! Have you gone through this tutorial? :)

    In some exercises, it's okay if your short drawings don't look like much of anything. Most of the time, proportion is not what you're after in 40 seconds.
