Speed Sculpts

While I've been waiting for Domainace War V and the recently announced Polycount BRAWL, I took some of the inspiration I got from this thread over at Game Artisans (specifically Tom Parker's work, which is absolutely phenomenal)  and started a series of speed sculpts.  I've never tried sculpting with time restraints before, so it has been challenging to me, but I've enjoyed it a ton!  What I like about doing gestures in life drawing and now speed sculpts in ZBrush is that I find myself willing to push myself to try new things and the freedom to mess up because I know I'm only going to loose an hour so it isn't the end of the world.  In other words, it feels great to break out of nitpicking perfectionism. Anyhow, here are two busts that I did in 1.5 hours each.  I still have much to learn, but I had fun and am relatively pleased with the results so far (considering these are my first two.)
