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!

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!
