I think I've lost some of the life I put into my gestures. I'm not great with anatomy anymore, either. I still have a good taste for form, though. I did this: [link] without any shade references. The best part, though, is that bottom lip. XD I just always kinda knew where shading went.

How fast? My college class does 30seconds on average. Then sometimes we'll work up to a minute, then five minutes, then ten. They'll we'll do full drawings.

0_0 wow................ its usually only three minute drawings, but we just learned how to gesture draw, so we always take longer.

30 second ones are crazy. I prefer the 1-5minute range.

You'll be able to do it with practice. You've gotta learn to be okay not putting in lots of detail and breaking things down to their most basic forms.

It's basically quick sketching of a model. You take, say, thirty seconds to draw a really quick and simple sketch of the model and their pose. It's not so much about capturing detail as it is about capturing the essence of a figure and its movement. It can help with proportion as well as other things.
