Oh please not yet another sketchbook
I expect you to critique me.
I expect you to gangbang me with critique so hard that I'll be crying tears out of my NOSE.
If I'm not lying in a corner sobbing after the first post, you're not doing your job well enough.
I need some serious progress, it's only about a year or so until I start college, and... I really want to get into one. >>
More to come!

A quick study of value I did with a mechanical pencil.

You have some very good drawings there, you drew the skeleton very well. All your drawings are well shaded.

Thanks a lot, Icedearth15876! You think you could tell me what to do better?
Here are some pen sketches from the local library... a month or so old, and filled with splotches. Goddamn piece of crap pen.

Some of my older works. Please don't kill me because of the horrible Photoshop filters, lack of light source/proper background and the manga style. I'm... working on that.
The three girls belongs to twinklecrystalx and Kuchinawa over at deviantART.
Don't kill me for that either.

School's out and the hard times of exams are finally past tense.
I've hardly had time to draw at all, and I've been through some kind of artist's block... I hope it will disappear now when it's vacation.
Expect some paintings soon, as I've bought paint. I need to get down some hue and value studies, as well as anatomy studies.
But that's what vacation's for, isn't it?
Some crappyass head doodles... drawing heads is soothing.

Great start there! You seem to be good with figures, hands and overall proportions look right as well as faces (apart from the big eyes and pointy chins, heh). The skeleton drawing looks great too. I think the main problem in general I'm seeing is wonky perspective. It's clearest on the shadows of your item sketches but shows easily on the figures too - the sitting girl's feet seem to be on a different plane than her butt (the foot on our left is too high). I saw an excercise on the mentoring forums about filling a sheet with loads of 3d boxes, first in 1-point perspective, then 2-point and then bird or frog. It's boring but I tried it and seemed to give result pretty fast. Keep drawing those items from life too, good value practice.

Thanks a lot, smuli! You have NO IDEA how motivated I was after I read your post!
And of course, you're right. I'll practice loads!
Because of work I haven't been able to do as much practice as I would lately, but I've managed to fill a GAZILLION sheets of squares. Most of them got thrown away, and some are lost on the mess that is my room, but I grabbed a few to annoy all of you people who sees this.
Next week, draw shadows using perspective and real life objects using perspective! Hooray!
Also throwing in two watercolours I did. I wanted to try out watercolours, because... well... yeah. Because.

Thanks, A La Bapsi! I will! *heart*
My biggest weakness is that I get demotivated fast... luckily, I have a goal to work towards!
I drew a cereal box and a matchbox today. I didn't add details or anything, just wanted you all to see the faulty lines. >>
I'll practice more tomorrow!
Also, in one of my 'bored' periods, I decided to take up on Bapsi's advise and practiced skeletal structure. I'll try to draw some big, detailed skeleton hands soon to get a better understanding of them, because I need to practice them.
And legs... hmm... sounds like a schedule.

try doing that perspective stuff freehand..
and get more confident with your lines.. try to get away from the sketchy thick lines.. your lines don't have to be perfect, but when you only give yourself one chance to do each line, you'll begin to improve with the few lines you get to use, and you'll learn to look better the first time.. i find i'm suggesting to everyone to do blind contours, they work wonders.

Hey Monkey Dominator.
Great sketches you got and I really like the watercolor flower. Get yourself an anatomy book, draw as much from life as possible and look into Glenn Vilppu's Drawing DVD's they'll give you a great deal of information and speed up your learning curve!
Oh and look into www.youtube.com/digitalbobert if you need to get yourself motivated!!!
And stay on the drawing board

As yousa said.
You need to pick up a book about anatomy. But you dont really have to get a book. You can use google to find everything you need.
I also notice that you don't seem to know what you're doing when you draw that circle when making a head. It's like you do it because someone told you do and have no idea why.
I have no intention of explaining every aspect of guidelines and such and that's why we're telling you to go get some books or whatever on anatomy, They are everywhere some free some not.
Do not be frightened by reading whats in these books, I know some others as well as my self get really bored and turned down when i see several pages covered in nothing but text. But this text is gonna teach you more than any of the exercises in the following pages of any good book.
When you draw;
Think about mass and how it would look in 3D. How would an arm look if a person was scratching the back of his head? (look in a mirror)
What is underneath? You don't draw a skeleton to learn how to draw a skeleton you draw it so you can understand what is under all that flesh skin and clothes. When you draw any part of the body think of how the skeleton looks and how the muscles move around that area. (There is so much.. simply put get a nice 50or so page book on anatomy)"Sadly, most artists prefer to give the elite their attention."
