Haha, I've been absent for a long time, but I have not stopped drawing!
I managed to ace my entrance exam for art and am going to study starting this winter, about which I am absolutely thrilled.
Your hatching is really good, your linework is clean and you have good values/contrast.
Don't let the shading be the most important thing tho, watch out for proportions as well, as Erikly pointed...
Like Torres said, pay more attention to proportions, you have a tendency of drawing people (way) too thin and their heads are way too big in proportion to the rest of the body. I suggest you take a...
Your style will come naturally, don't try to force one.
You're doing well with your anatomy studies, especially your clean lines are quite good, try to keep that up and don't be discouraged by...
I'd say pay more attention to the angles of the lines that you're drawing.
Try not to "chicken scratch" as much, as you did in the hand study, because a clean line is better than trying to find the...
Some sketches I've copied from Gottfried Bamme's Book "We draw people", it's quite good.
I should really switch to A4 paper, I can't scan this because it's on A3 and my scanner is too small.
Whenever you are working with a reference, it's good to measure a lot. The thumb and pencil method works quite well. You should also pay attention to the angles of the object you're trying to...
Thanks a lot for the critique! I will pay more attention to it next time. :)
Nothing fancy, just a few more leg studies.
I think your landscapes are absolutely marvelous!
Great color palette and composition.
The skull of the catman seems kind of odd tho, it looks... squashed? Maybe it's the angle of the mouth, not...
Will do, thank you. :)
Two self portraits, one in graphite one in Photoshop.
Your face sketches are quite lovely, keep up your diligent work. :)
Some more sketches. Still working on the anatomy of the legs.
Thanks man, I'll be sure to check it out. :)
// Ink sketches
Decided to try out sketching with ink, it's a lot of fun.

Picked up "Sketching and rendering in pencil", so I tried to improve my pencil shading skills. Didn't realize how...
Several tips: First, if you draw digitally, it's always good to draw on a 50% gray background, so you can see the values more accurately.
Secondly, sketch out the outlines and general shape of what...
Too bad you didn't update that frequently, I would've loved to see more of your learning process.
One tip for your digital work tho, try to work with the largest brush and then gradually go...
You've certainly improved a lot over the course of this thread.
It's admirable to see such a diligent and dedicated artist, keep it up.
I really like your sketches, nice, clean lines and good contrast.
Keep up the good work.
Since the attachments seem to be broken right now, here is what I did today.
The images of the last post should be up whenever the attachments come back online.
///Types of muscles and joints....
Picked up Bridgmans constructive anatomy, been loving it.
Some pencil sketches.
I bid you welcome traveler, for you have reached a sketchbook in which I will document my continued failures on my quest to become GREAT. The road to GREATness is plastered with obstacles such as...
