I love that the first thing you post here is hand studies. So many artists I know are drop-dead terrified of studying/drawing hands, but it's great to see someone bite the bullet and grind them out.
[By the way, for the "no Ref" hand (the one on the right, drawn in purple), that large 'C' curve on the palm should not be there; there's no muscles or bones that protrude in that fashion. Fortunately, it's a little mistake that can be fixed with more studies.]

You're pretty brave to tackle hands early on, I was avoiding them as much as possible until not long ago. if you want a suggestion I think learning the general proportions will help you immensely with hands, they don't look off on these but on the bottom one I noticed the fingers are a bit out of proportion.

yeah , thats why somehow i choose anatomy as something to start with even though every one says its hard , i just like drawing characters ^^

and yeah i guess i over-did the C curve

Hey first of all, stuff looks great so far :D

For the gesture drawings I'd say to try and see what the line of action is. Also dont copy from the image as much as it is temping to do, what you are trying to get with gesture drawings is the feel and flow of the gesture not the details. Gesture drawings almost work on a principle of less is more. With time you'll get better at it for sure and you'll see your figures improve too! Also, dont be scared to exaggerate the pose. Just keep at it man!

Cool gesture drawings! I know those pictures from Lifedrawing, where I try to copy those people as exact as possible. I should try them as gesture drawings, too!
If you have time and motivation, how about spending 30min or so on one of them to detail it and make it look really awesome and realistic? (this is not a tip on gesture, but cool anyways)

i actually use sketchdaily to get the pictures , also i could do that if my practice sessions were made of one solid time. you know family, they never leave you when you need yo focus TT

Hey there, welcome to the forum! First of all, good start on the gestures! That's a must to start on, and to keep consistent in! One thing I should mention is your shaky lines, though. You want your gestures to be nice and smooth, drawing from your wrist, elbow, and shoulder at different times for different angles, strokes, and curves. So one thing you can do is grab a piece of paper and draw a variety of circles and straight lines with your wrist, using just one stroke.
Here's something to get started: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eaif0PpNMas

I'm glad! Keep it up! Make it a daily routine to follow and you'll have greater results in just about everything you want to do, be it whether you chose painting (brush economy) or inking (thick&thin, line variety, etc.)

from my perspective - gesture drawing is ridiculously dumb thing for beginner
1. you wont draw good gesture - without knowing of basic proportions
2. you wont draw good gesture - without knowing of basic anatomy
but it's only my opinion. Good luck with studies :)
