This is where I resume after years of not really drawing at all.

This is Chow Yun Fat from the classic Chinese action film The Killer, in one of his most famous poses. (No reference) Whoever has not seen The Killer must see it. It's one of those films you have to see before you kick the bucket.

Try to draw without so many scribbles. It would probably turn out a lot better if you don't speed through it, like it looks like you did. Other than that, I'd say keep practicing your art work. This isn't really bad if you went years without drawing.

I say go for scribbles! Though just keep it nice and tidy.. you can't learn without scribbles.. i mean look at gesture drawings.. they are very scribbly, and still considered an art form (mostly used for learning and understanding form, movement, weight, and shadowing)

The main problems I see here are your sense of proportion with the lower and upper halves of the body, and you got some forshortening problems going on as well.

i see you mentioned it this is Chow Yun Fet? Did you use a reference?

I didn't use any references except the photograph in my head. Unfortunately I can't convey it perfectly.

Later today I rewatched that part of the movie and realized he did that pose in a much cooler way that I drew.

well, right on Wark. Just don't forget to use the basic building principles when you're drawing. do a rough sketch of the body in simple shapes that make sense to you, then flesh em out!

And yes Brain, stepping outside of the confinement of straight perfect lines, allows you to be more fluid and expressive.

Why would you tell someone not to do a gesture?
