Here are some old sketches that I've done for classes and for me. I hope to be able to post new stuff soon....
This is a still life scene I set up for life drawing class.
This is another sketch I did for life drawing.
A model from life drawing class and the first complete sketch I've ever done in class.
A self-portrait, again for life drawing class.
A character I made for a character design assignment.
I'll try and post up more old stuff and maybe some new gestures later.

Hey. Are these taken with a camera? The self-portrait and model drawing are rather blurry and difficult to discern, although what I can make out of the model drawing especially looks good. The first still-life is well drawn, but I'm not too fond of the shading in this one - perhaps next time you can try experiment with blending or more definitive hatching technique instead?
The last character is quite nifty looking with the obvious personality coming off. I think what you might want to do is add a link to your sketchbook in your signature so it's easier to locate you when people see your posts. This might help. Good luck and keep posting! This is an excellent start to your sketchbook.
Yeah they were taken with a camera. And I will try experimenting with different shading techniques. Also thanks for the help with the link as well as the comment. Also, I will post more sketches tomorrow.
Here's three pages of gestures and a character design for today...i had more gestures but I lost my original sketchbook and had to draw on printer paper. These gestures are done from pictures I found on character design. I'm trying to get better at doing gestures so yeah...here we go.
Here's some stuff I drew yesterday. These are gestures from poses I got from character design.
These are gestures that I did from my head while listening to some music.
And this is just a random sketch i did. No reference used.
I love your gestures and character designs... especially the first one in your last post. Your pose drawing skills are beyond mine.. I need to keep practicing. Keep up the good work!
I like the figures from characterdesigns; I really ought to learn to construct figures 'properly' myself, haha. Make sure you practice faces along with the figure though, such as from life (e.g. more self portraits in the mirror are a good way to learn) or from photos and etc. I'll echo the last two and say keep it up too.
Keep drawing and in time I think there is a potential for really great work here. When I do gesture drawings I like to use up the page as much as possible. I would say focus in and hammer down on the head, hands, and feet. Study the skeleton and avoid just connecting points together... bridge with your knowledge of bones and muscle in mind with their structure and limitations. I am not sure how long you have been drawing but one thing I found is to find different approches and find what works and doesn't for you. One way may be good for one person and not another. Overal good work and progress.
It's been a while since I posted anything so here goes.
Here's a sketch I did from a magazine ad while at the salon.
