I never took art seriously even in school mainly because I never believed I could ever come close to the stuff artist do on a regular basis so why even try I used to say. I'm gonna work at it now, and see where it takes me if anywhere. I like manga so you might see me heading that direction, but I will try to focus on realistic things.
here are a couple I done after watching youtube tutorals., bad lighting and camera (no scanner), it doesnt matter because they arent any good anyway:

Welcome! And looks like a pretty good start actually :0 How much time are you willing to spend on drawing? :p You got a long roads ahead xD But keep at it and you'll get there pretty quickly
thanks I hope i dont give up, I will just treat this as something fun and not work or else I might abandon it. Here are two others i just done quickly based on pictures in a newspaper:

Mm good idea to take it slowly at first, but i'm gonna challenge you to ramp it up a little every week
Looks like you have a bit of trouble with the hands in these ones , do you know any way to simplify hands? :0
great start! think of figures as giant block robots. not a unit, but many components and parts for each limb. check out posemaniacs.com for thier 30s gesture drawing thing, a great warm up excercise!
check out my : SKETCHBOOK: All critiques much needed and WELCOMED!
Where are the updates dude?
Alright, most of these are my attempts at gesture drawing 30 sec, I failed so hard, then there is a pic of a couple from tv and then some sketchy concept art from a dream i had. Yea i have trouble with the hands, but then again i have trouble with every limb so I'll just learn how to do fingers later since I don't see them as a vital component. There is a ton of stuff I drew that i dont upload, this is just a selection to give you and me an idea of what im up to.

Oh yes, gestures are difficult, so don't be discouraged and keep at it! One thing that might help you if you find the time limit tough at first, is to start with a skeleton-like stick figure, that would allow you to concentrate on proportions and pose and ignore the rest until you feel comfortable with those.
Break the body parts down into groups, and do muscle studies, and life studies. I use posemaniac myself, if the 30 seconds is too much give yourself more time.
Ev'sSketchbook for the lazy minded but willing!

Hey, welcome to CA! Nice start for your SB.
You might find this useful for gestures, it's basically the Vilppu method:
Start with a higher time limit if 30'' is too little. You might want to study perspective, and do some drawings of everyday objects from observation. It'll help you lots.
Keep it coming!
"Great job guys! I love you. You're fired."
Sketchbook! Me vs Anatomy (and other things)
hmm for gestures, i'd say to try getting into some longer poses like 3 or 5 mins, and draw lightly with your pencil, only pressing down when you're sure of a line :0 The longer poses will allow you to observe how different body parts look when turned in space (torso, legs) and you can transfer these simplified shapes over to your 30 second gestures
