I'm a freelance 3d artist/concept artist located in germany. the last years i spent a lot on learning know how and technic for doing animated features.. but i've always had a fable for drawing and paintin' .
i would love to get some serious and honest CC about my stuff, and perhaps some tips to improve, or anything.
Help me improve!

the problem i currently have is, that my first sketches for those poses look pretty ugly. I need time and layers to work out overlapping and correct foreshortning.. if i try this on paper.. i can't get it to work like the upper drawings. dunno, if to go more for fast sketches.. or just learn and work out poses to digg everything and the rest will eventually come, even on paper?

heres a WIP layed out. i'm currently struggeling with a lean back postion, viewn from a bit deep under..which i thought should be easy, well hmm , this is just 5 minutes stuff.. i draw alot of this , but most time it directly goes to the dump, but i'm sure if i'll work more on this it'll get better..

Burned up my scanning device begining of the week, the anatomy studies from bridgman, are all on paper. Maybe I can scan stuff later, when I'm going to my girl friends home. So heres just small digital things i did the last weeks .. I've been more onto speed things also.. but should also do some longer and not as fast "sketches" to really understand.. dunno...
The only drawing thing studied on this following is the small thor marvel picture.. the Rest is from head.. as always.. until now :p
The color stuff is all photo referenced. done in 40 minutes on timer to learn color better.

I really like your traditional and digital stuff, its seldom you find someone who is at the same level with both.
Some nitpicks for you to learn form:
On the last one a lot more red of the sky should reflect in the guys armor and try adding more drama with a cape perhaps?
I love the armor study. I should do one of those.
I really like your enviros, but I would suggest adding subtle unusal colurs you wouldn't think about first. That will add a lot to the realism. Try studying form fotos on the internet.
