How to draw gesture resources

I want to collect here some links which inspire and help me in gesture drawing. I do them rather simple, those were done in 90 seconds:

 The main idea is - concentrate on general flow and form, forget about details! Sometimes even turn your brain off and give all the power to your hand :)
I found Michael Hampton's (I wrote about it in my article Anatomy resources for self-study ) book is perfect for start and good understanding what you do and why.

For  reference, if you don't have access to model in studio, you can go to one of those websites:

Alternatively, you can collect your own folder with nice photorefs and play them  slideshow with time interval set from 30sec to 3 min. I use FastStone Image Viewer it's free and have all functionality that I need.

Good video tutorials:

Some inspirational sketches:

That one from  Ryan Woodward he's awesome!
