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 https://imgur.com/a/ci4bE72and 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!
