Hi all, I'm practicing gesture drawing, and I'm having difficulty getting the proportions right while still keeping everything fluid. When I try drawing with the single line strokes like I've seen in Proko's Step By Step Gesture Drawing, it's hard to determine the relative sizes of different areas. So far I've come up with faintly sketching out basic shapes first and then overlaying them with the line strokes, but it does make the whole process much slower and stiff. Any suggestions or tips to get around this would really help.

I'm assuming your a relative beginner therefore don't have a lot of dexterity with a pencil quite yet but don't worry because that's just something that comes with time but for some good practice you can look up line exercises to improve quicker. Proportion is something else you can study but also something that can come with time too. Maybe next time you practice gesture you can focus mainly on getting those swift gestural marks from your shoulder and worrying less about proportion and then in another session try to focus more on proportion and less line quality, instead of trying to wrap your brain around all these things at once try to tackle em one at a time. Good luck on your journey

Specifically for perspective you should really check out the Drawabox course! I know the creator of the course is on here but I don't know if the course itself is but thats not a big problem cause the course is free on Drawabox.com. Drawabox is where I got my start and it's my favorite resource so far and good luck on your journey

Here is my go at 2 min gesture drawing! I am struggling super hard with keeping proportions and my lines in check and I also chicken scratch pretty hard. Any comment is appreciated!

I’m not expert myself but you should just keep up the practice but I think you should also try out the bean from Prokos figure drawing course to get a better sense of the relationship between the rib age and pelvis. For line quality I recommend looking into lesson 1of Drawabox there’s a lot of exercises there that are for line quality and dexterity and best part is that it’s free! Have a nice day :)

These are two minute gestures I did this morning, this is the first time I’ve looked for critique on my figure drawing but it’s better later than never. I’ve also been using Figure Drawing: Design and Invention by Michael Hampton as well
