Hello, I recently started learning drawing and thought gesture drawing was the best place to start. I looked up a lot of things and binge read some books before actually getting rid of my laziness and trying it myself. I am surprised how people I watched makes this looks so easy. I have seen people take different approaches to gesture drawing, my guess is that there is no best way to do it? I am a couple of days in with these 1 minute drawings and need some guidance on what am I doing wrong, or if I just lack experience. Maybe 1 minute is too short for me at the moment?
Well, since your goal is getting better at drawing, and in this case people, I suggest 5 or 10 minutes. I can tell you now, might as well forget about doing anything besides a couple gesture lines in 30 seconds :)
