nice gesture drawings! but I can see that you focusing a bit on the contour and anatomy of the pose which is effecting your gesture in the drawing. I would suggest to spend a little time on doing 30 second gestures and and focusing in on just a couple lines that really show and capture the feeling of the pose. by practicing 30 second poses will allow you to intuitively express gesture in your lines with nearly everything you see. Don't worry if it doesn't look exactly like a human body yet. because the main idea is to capture that gesture. I'm not the best at gesture drawing, but hopefully this helps you with you drawings, and me ,for my understanding of gesture drawing too. keep going your doing great! from Tiago 😃

They are great actually! And I will say that you're on the right track. But, it seems to me that you haven't build up (or probably lost) your confidence yet. The thing about gesture is that you shouldn't follow instruction 'stroke for stroke'. It's actually the other way round: it's all about finding your own stroke. You see, when you follow someone's stroke, you will normally lose confidence in yourself. It's like reading a speech you don't write. And it shows through your work. As you can see, your stroke is a little bit sketchy. If you find it difficult to find your own stroke though, usually it's because you haven't decided the important lines yet. There are a lot of lines you can draw and it's tempting to draw all of them, but it's not the point of gesture after all. Find the ones that are important to one particular gesture. I've drawn over your work (only 3 out 5 unfortunately), to point out what's these important lines are. The bold lines are the important ones, and the thin one are the helping lines. By focusing to the important ones, you make your gesture clearer and better, like a loud speech, compared to a mumble.

Don't worry kanaka, your on the right track :). gesture is just something that takes years to get the hang of. If you wanna improve faster try and practice at least 15 minutes a day on gesture everyday. you will get better. The critiques I would give has already been mentioned by the others, but other than that keep going and good luck on your art journey. from ya boy, Tiago 😊.
