    hey! nice, making a sketchbook is a good start!
    uhm...as far as art goes, try to start thinking of things in basic 3 dimensional shapes: cilinder, cube, sphere...
    If you´re doing figurative art, you´ll have to start thinking 3 dimensional, as everything in life has 3 dimensions. Drawing them in basic shapes is a good way to start thinking about things like anathomy, that may look hard at first, but as soon as you realize that you can relate everything in life to a basic 3 dimensional shape, then you´ll be able to draw anything from the combination of these shapes...

    hope this helps,
    keep up the good work!

    the feet look very nice!
    the eyes lack of form, they look a bit flat. Try to think basic shapes. the eyeball is a sphere, and the eyelids wrap around them. You should feel the eyeball behind those eyelids, in your drawings.
    it looks good, now do moar!
    the key to drawing is drawing, drawing, drawing, drawing, and then some more drawing. =)
    all the best!

    Just keep up with those studies and you'll improve. For you right now, pencil mileage is important. Keep drawing, drawing, and drawing. At this point in your artistic development quantity, not quality is the key.

    Good luck and keep praciticing.

    @Flashback - Thanks for stopping by, bro.

    @chriis.zed - Ok, I'll try some longer poses. The 90-second poses are good for motivation, even though I am having trouble finishing them.

    @BubbaGump - Thanks. I'll keep plugging away.
