I had a quick question about gesture drawing for all those experienced artist out there. What skill does gesture drawing build up? A person on this forum told me I should do a lot of gesture drawing if I want to get better at drawing characters but would I benefit more from doing a master copy of stuff in a anatomy book, that way i can build up a bit of anatomy first before I start drawing things in different posses? I'm kind of lost I just got into drawing and I'm a bit confused with what to do next. any one have any advice?
