    Love it. I can see a lot of personality in some of these quick sketches which I believe qualifies them for at least partial success. Also, I adore your lines.

    Keep it coming!

    Love that last trench coat in ink. Your quick gesture poses inspire me to do more of that as well and not get hung up in too much detail. Very cool stuff!

    KT Samurai: Partial success is better than no success Thanks for the comment

    KrispyKream: Thank you, I always like to build forms with hatching. I'm glad you like it.

    Blueflies: Thanks, Gesture drawings are really helpful, I'm happy mine inspired you to do more.

    Now for some more art. The first quick studies are done from an mma fight on tv.
    Second is quick study of armor from photo ref in ballpoint and the last ones are two quick portrait sketches from photo ref in ink.

    I love the hatching you use! And your gestures are amazingly well-defined for only 60-seconds... it's impressive!

    I really love your cross-hatch work. I've always been pretty bad at that particular technique, so I can really respect when someone does it and does it well. Keep up the good work!
