hmm yeah the book you got is good.... especialy those photographs in there....and nice studies...try to see the appropriate edges though....
wow, your improvement from when you started this sb to now is awesome! I don't really have any good crits for you right now, but I'll probably be back to stroll through your whole sb (I just looked at the first and last pages). Keep up the good work.
TheGnoll, thanks! I know I have a lot of anatomy issues, and I'm trying to work on them. Hopefully, I'll get a hang of it soon enough.

bhanu, thanks man. But these photos are the best I can get my hands on, by far.
