Spidey Gestures

The assignment: Draw 60 gesture sketches for 1 hour. Be able, in 60 seconds, to locate proportions and allude to anatomical structure of overall figure.

The final attempts:

The first attempts:

I learned that I shouldn't be afraid to draw bigger and move my whole arm. Only at the end of the 60 (actually, maybe 90) minutes, I was able to relax, think of the figure as a whole, as solid mass instead of a series of lines, and sort of sense the overall form. Even if he did come out looking like Michaelangelo's Adam.
