So far this is my practice of gesture. What I really want to do is understand how a 30 sec gesture, 1 minute and 2 minutes gestures would look like. I tried to do 30 seconds but I continuously ran out of time. Could someone show and explain what those type of gestures would look like. My routine: *one day I spend to improve my skills *one day I draw things I am interested in to have fun and to do experiments 🔬 thanks for all the critics in advance everyone🥇🧨🥇

Nice job on these. Great proportion, and I can tell you've been grinding these concepts. I agree with @Moonfey and @nothanks. Push the gesture more, these poses feel stiff. What I'd recommend doing is watching @Erik Gist's videos on the Watts Atelier Youtube channel. In those you can see him really drawing through the forms, and with energy. I also recommend @Mike Mattesi's content for drawing with energy as well.

Question for you both: Who would win in a fight, Stan or Erik?

Hey! I'd say it really depends on what your goals are. An illustrator might want to spend a ton of time learning figure, where as a concept artist would likely spend way less time. @Jeffrey Watts has a video on his Youtube channel called "How to Train to be a Professional Artist" that I really liked when I was in school. What I'd say is identify your goals, and then go from there.

Hey Jasper! Great job on these, they're super clean. Not much I'd say in the way of critiques, it seems like you understand the concepts really well. What I might say is to now invent some from imagination and try to get them to this quality. I found your Instagram online and saw your figure stuff. It's really strong, a lot of pros I know won't go much further than what you already know. I think inventing these beans from your head would help in you imagination drawings.

Hey Valerio, great job on these. Your structure and proportions are definitely getting there. The first thing I'd recommend is taking better photos of your artwork when sharing it. Even just studies. Us being in a visual medium, every aspect of the image presented will communicate something. In this photo, the uneven lighting makes certain parts of the image hard to read. Your photos in your other posts are perfectly fine. It also looks like you might be on rough newsprint. I'm not positive you are, but it's a lot easier getting clean lines if you have a smoother drawing surface. The next thing I'd recommend is drawing with more intention and energy. I can tell that you're drawing people, but if you take each individual parts of what you're drawing, it's really hard to tell what's going on. A possible solution is to start drawing with simpler lines. When I was in school, one of my teachers, @Erik Gist, told me that in quick sketch, especially at this stage in the drawing, you should only really be using C S I lines. That's C curves, S curves, and straights. I can tell you're sort of already doing it, but I think you're lacking in confidence in what you're drawing. Someone who does a really good job teaching that stuff is @Mike Mattesi. His book Force, and his videos are really good for injecting gesture into drawings. It's not necessarily about getting "pretty" drawings. It's all about getting the action and gesture of the pose. I've included a diagram of the Reilly Method, and some other demonstrations I did over other student drawings on how I might simplify drawings.

Would you rather eat an entire jar of mayonnaise in one sitting, or for 2 months you have to wear perpetually wet socks?
