Wow, only 2 months? You're studies are looking good.
Keep on practicing, and work on getting more comfortable in your strokes.

Check and crit my SKETCHBOOK!
hobo lyra, Thanks for the comments and I usually start drawing a 7 or 8 AM; nevertheless, I still need practice with drawing more loosely.
Also, I really started drawing 5 months ago (off & on), but I didn't really building a schedule and ethic two months ago.
I still need some scanner practice, so tips are appreciated.
More stuff (old):
More old stuff:
More old stuff:
1) References from a book.
2) Bridgman Reference.
3) Loomis and other stuff.
4) A lighter.
5) More Bridgman.
1) Posemaniacs.com 30/sec (90 secs actually)
2) Picture reference (upload it when I find it)
3) Posemaniacs.com Random viewer
The pics are very large. Might I suggest around 900x600 or so.
The first step - especially for young people with energy and drive and talent, but not money - the first step to controlling your world is to control your culture. To model and demonstrate the kind of world you demand to live in. To write the books. Make the music. Shoot the films. Paint the art.
1) Lamp post
2) Some Person while I was waiting for my next class
3) The trunk of a tree
4) Bridgman studies
Nice work so far. I wish I had started out with anatomy studies when I started taking drawing seriously.
One thing that I would suggest is to make your lines less chicken-scratchy and sketchy. What I mean is, try and use only one line to define your curves, rather than hundreds of short lines. Your lines will become much more confident. You can still draw multiple lines on top of each other, just try and make each line you draw the exact length of the shape you're trying to define.
Keep drawing, you're off to a good start.
Yay for using scrap paper! Kudos to you for that. (I use work scrap, and the back side of bad sketches for drawing exercises). Keep up the good work!
Gmc9987: Thanks for the suggestion, I think I have to learn the proper muscle memory among hand eye coordination.
Aphotic Phoenix: It's much more economical using 500 sheet printer paper. then 100 High-quality art paper, especially if I'm not even close to be decent at drawing, yet.

are you rich or something?
watch out proportions, keep studing.
Gotta work on that line quality, man!
Might be worth getting some variation in the softness of your pencils, like buying a few B's, B3's, B6's and B8's. They'll make shading alot easier, and it'll help give your drawing texture and depth.
Also if you want to develop you skill I'd suggest doing some more observational work from real-life, so going to the locl park with a sketchbook and drawing the surrounding scene, or going to local lifedrawing sessions.
My sketchbook, if you really want to see it...

BubbaGump: Thanks for the suggestion.
kagemusha22: Yes, I tried those pencils. And I didn't really like them that much.
I will do more life drawings. But a class cost way too much.

Many museums and art galleries offer figure drawing sessions for a small pirce per session. The one here where I live offered 2 hour sessions once a week for 5 bucks a session, until they went out of business.
