Ooh, wow... I really love your characters! They're so expressive! I like the robot best so far... but I'm biased 'cos I love robots. You make me feel like I should clean up my lines... and I should! And... study poses...
Oh, but for gestures, even one-minute sketches, it's best to still draw the skeleton underneath. Err, I'll do some too. (I need to anyway) If you're loose enough with the skeleton you'll have plenty of time to go over it! I end up getting the skeleton down with one continuous stroke... lol but I'm really loose with my lines. I've had to do 10 second sketches so one minute would be a relief.

DUDE! I love your style. It's humorous and reminds me of something close to what I see in Ren and Stimpy. Your lines are smooth and edged and clean and beautiful.
Keep up the sketches, man.

Really nice, solid, smooth, clean, confident inks. I don't see the same confidence in your life drawings though, hence all the scratchy, unnecessary lines. I think you may be lingering too much on your sketches-- just let go and draw more--you don't have to comment on every doodle, or make all the lines and shapes perfect. I know artists who have some really loose sketches, but who produce ridiculously detailed, well-constructed finished work. I think it helps to have a balance of quick and long sketches.
Other than that, just keep it up! Try some other styles too-- even cartoonists need not limit themselves to one style. Pick up "Cartoon America," it has loads of different styles from cartooning's history. Or just look at lots of different kinds of art, if you want to broaden your horizons.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, the commenting on the doodles thing is just something silly I add right before it hits the scanner. (Like the Mr. Clean reference on the life gestures).
