Hard work is paying off, looking very good here. Great master studies, and lots of them. Your figure drawings are of difficult poses and angles with foreshortening, and you pull them off well.
I think you can gain more from your master studies, by spending more time with some of them - I feel you are aborting before you get to really study the mark making of the masters, which is important part of their economical and effective way of painting. Take the Edgar Payne, or the Sorolla for example. Every brush stroke does much more than just show value and color in a particular area - they have gesture too, sharp and soft edges, direction and rhythm. He can do so much with so few strokes. I think it is worth studying and applying some of it in your painting.

Sushy - Hey, nice to see you again! I used oils in those studies. I believe you can use acrylics too. In this case, JManley advised me to use a set of colours that was popular among some of the old masters (Indian red, Prussian blue, Yellow ochre, Burnt sienna, and a white and black).
ricknos - Thanks for the support! I just need to get more productive, haha.
R-K - Thanks for the helpful tips. It's true I've been struggling with brush strokes in the master studies. That goes for digital work in general though. Find it hard to handle the digital brushes. I guess its worth investing some more time in this. Cheers for the advise! I think I already have some suitable studies in mind.
This one was for self portrait day (nov 1st) here on conceptart.org (link) as well as facebook.
Next up will be tons of life drawings.

Allright, more figure drawing. Two sessions.
As usual, short (~1.5 to 3 min) gestures first. Time increases to 15 or 20min per pose for the last ones. I've mostly used pencils, pens, conté.
