    Wow, there is a lot of very strong artwork in here! I especially like your tonal studies and these last portaits are great! Also, I wouldn't consider you to be lazy at all, you are producing a lot of work here! Nothing much I can really crit, but keep going, I would love to see more!

    These are really interesting. I find them very appealing

    It's cool that you're trying all sorts of different stuff as that will make you improve faster, I think.

    Keep up

    You have a very good grasp of anatomy, but in you face sketches your almost always skewing or malproportioning just one or two things. I don't know if you already do this, but holding them up to a mirror will make it easier to spot mistakes. Other than that, I think your sketches would improve immensely if you used a wider range of pencils. They need darker values to really make them pop.
    The figure drawings and those last two portraits are great.

    Noses appear to be your strong point. Congratulations.
    Dear god, that sounded sarcastic. It wasn't. Really, congratulations. Noses are bitches.
    Great form rendering on the last one- is it from imagination? My criticism is that her body looks like it should be sitting with her legs tucked underneath her (sort of like this: http://www.gettyimages.com/detail/200141285-001/Taxi) rather than jumping. If she's supposed to be turning towards us in the air, you might express that better by having her head facing more in the direction it was before the jump, so we can tell that she's turning and not just jumping straight up and tucking her legs. Her torso is also extremely restful. That may have been what you were going for (capturing a moment of calm and control in an athletic move), but there's no appearance of movement of any kind. I think you can probably get away with that if you make her movement apparent in the rest of the image, but keep in mind that what you have now is a bit hard to read. I think you've really got something if she's either spinning or sitting- just pick one and express it with passion.

    Craz- you're so damn on the spot!!!! i was always thinking the same thing... too static... i used some ref pics from a friend that's a dancer.
    i'm gonna retouch maybe some stokes, maybe give that air of spinning... i'm glad u got that calm vibe, i was tryign to go for that moment and feeling, like majestic in a sort of way... thanx for the crits hope to improve it

    i tried to add some blur and bring some movement... prob the wrong process but i just didn't want to re render, it would be like changing everything from the beggining... better??? worse??? you be the judges plz


    edit... redid a bit of rendering.... and took out the blur...

    There's no important difference with the blur. This may sound harsh, but you're going to have to change something big. I think a repositioning of the legs may do it. It's really down to you to decide what to change, and if the change makes it worse... hey, it's digital. You don't have to lose anything. I know it's a bitch to go over work you spent loads of time and effort on. When I think I should go over something I like, I always just tell myself that if I did it once, I can do it again (only better, because I've done it before).
    The way forward with this piece is to be brave with it. Think the movement through... Pay particular attention to where the legs would go... Save a backup...
    I want to say good luck, but luck's got fuck-all to do with it. So bon voyage if you decide to take it on.

    There is a great improvment from the first post!
    The watercolors and the red-penciling are intresting.

    One thing, when you draw portraits from your mind, it seems as if you don't have understanding. But you do have a great eye, so maybe study abit of loomis or bridgman's
    books, they are great for understanding the human form
    ..
    I promise to draw every day, and try to post everyday!(Changed)
    Being inspired by some of you guys,
    and thus decided to pick up my pencil everyday!

    I'll post any junk I make, in hopes of getting much
    constructive criticism and LEARN! (:
