    Criticism welcome.

    Those are some of my most recent works. They've been made in my primary style for concept-pics and black & white artworks. It's a combinations of grey copic-markers and opaque white.

    As the thread-title tells, criticism is welcome. I want to improve myself,
    so it can't be wrong to ask for the opinion of other artists.

    Structure

    Love the thinking you aplied to the drawing. Love the structure.

    But perhaps it´s geting to hard. My eye gets away from the figure, because it´s not retain by it. They are like stone made.

    This is a little trick.

    Very nice imagination and drawing, and good form too...

    But the lighting just doesn't work on any one of them. I think you need to work on cast shadows and in separating more precisely the shadow areas from the light areas in your pieces.

    These aren't drawings, y'know. They're "en grasaille" (black and white) paintings. As such, you should learn to paint.

    Try David Leffel's Painting Secrets of the Masters.

    At least Icarus tried!

    Thanks for the tipps.

    @ Kev Ferrara:
    Could you please give me an example how you'd improve on the shadows? I know I tend to want to highlight every detail, resulting in weak shadows.
    I already try to improve on this but I am thankful for concrete advice.

    I alrady looked for that book but didn't find it.

    Thanks.

    Here are two attempts to realize your advice.

    A slightly changed Tarasquee (I tried to increase the contrast between light and shadow) and a chimera.

    And a further attempt to improve my skills in digital painting:
