My name is Ali and I'm a artaholic. Art is a struggle for me, always has been. Some wrestle with weight, I wrestle with art. I compare myself which leads to criticising. I'm sure Im not the only one.
I've decided to compete against myself as opposed to competing against others. Do better then what I had done yesterday.
At the very least you'll see 2 studies per day:
2 Hour studies focusing on either Portraits, poses or environment
1 Hour studies that focus on the human figure (my biggest weakness)

You should look Andrew Loomis for structure, he has a book anatomy and face. It should help you ton in understanding the human anatomy and structure; I, myself also have trouble with anatomy when it comes to drawing people.
Hi, and welcome to CA.
What you labeled as gesture drawings look more like outline drawings to me. Gesture drawings usually focus on the rythm and flow in the motion while accurate anatomy is being neglected to a certain degree.
I suggest you to take a look at Stan's explanation and examples on the subject:
Had a couple of days off due to family visiting. I felt guilty as hell. Here's to no more distractions.
Gesture drawings. Hurray! I've reached 120! Now, Let's aim for 300!
And a continuation of anatomy studies using Loomis. I'm feeling very confident!
Now for reference studies. I'm really feeling confident with my reference studies!
