As a new years resolution I am hoping to do at least one sketch a day for my personal improvement. Here a pre new year warm up drawn whilst watching Buffy.

Looks good, but You need to work on getting your light source figured out.

A random idea inspired from looking through a book called "The Goblins of Labyrinth" that one of my friends got for xmas.

Thanks Sam I attended some life drawing classes as apart of my college course. We were asked only to draw line and structure for our first class. I suck terribly at figure drawing and have never drawn figures from life. But I need to learn. Here's a selection of the better sketches I did. I'm attending an extra life drawing class tonight for some much needed practice.
The last one is my best of the day i think.

I'm on my way to learn, so I don't think I can give you any "great tip" or suggestion.
What helped me to be more confident with line and drawing was a lot of drawing from photoreference; maybe you can try this.
I see that your shadowing is better than your line (in my opinion), so maybe you can try to improve the line, to make it more "fluid", alive, if this makes any sense to you ^_^
Take this just as an opinion, btw!
Great idea to force yourself in a daily sketch, I'm waiting to see more from you
I have a sketchbook!

Have you tried to think about a source of light when doing those sketches from imagination?
For example, imagine a light coming from left-upper (you can also put a sign there to remember it) and try to render each shape considering that light and the relative shadows/casting shadows. I think it could really improve your drawings
Btw...those 5 eyes dudes are cuuuute (LOL)

Thank you alice. Light source is something I really need to take into consideration. I need to sketch more from life. I appreciate your comment.
