thank you for commenting in my book!
you have a lot of nice digital studies here! i especially like those anatomy paintings!
i get the impression that all those are done after photo ref - right? if that's the case i'd recommend to start setting little still lifes up next to your computer - it will teach you looking a lot closer and observing colours better (and one isn't tempted to use the creade colour picker).
keep it up!

The rhino is nice, decent brush work. utilize your understanding of planes, in forms, and shapes. create distinct and delibrate strokes that describe what the form of the subject is doing. Look at studies for the human face as shapes in figure drawing fundamental books. however, the rhino stands out because of the somewhat finesse of placement and logic in the planar use of strokes that describe the gesture and thrust of the rhino's head, temple lobes, and its horn.
Keep it comin...

Keep it up man, you're going in the right direction. You might want to go strictly black and white until you get the hang of values but your doing well so far.
Edit: Some thing a lot of people need to do when there first learning to draw and see (I am still in this stage) This is spending quality time with a single image. From the primary sketches, to refining your lines. Making sure every angle is right, your contours make sense, if there is foreshortening then if your lines are overlapping the forms in the proper direction etc. Once you get your drawing down you go into the rendering stage and spend some quality time there to. I personally think it's 80% observing the images values and trying to understand them in your mind before you even touch the paper with your pencil or what ever medium you are using. Now that you have observed the image found out where the light source is comming from made notice of how the light wraps around the form to create Highlights, midtones, shadows, bounce light it's time to put that knowledge to work. Render, render. hope this kinda makes sense.

2 hour portrait study, of my sister
September 21st, 2008 #28
your lineflow needs some work, though i can seem progress already on them
try pushing yourself to draw a line in 1 line, not in bits and pieces.
first it wil look like crap (still does with me :p) cuz it doesnt have the direction or flow you want to, but after a while youll get the hang of it.
your working alot digital to, thats nice but dont forget the roost of art!
do some quick sketches on paper, anatomy studys and such.
keep it up
