I just discovered this site ;]
I have no art education, I am self taught. Due to this, I would love ANY ADVICE you can give me.
I encourage red lining my work, I will not be offended. I want to learn more.
My vice is video games. For the moment that video game is world of warcraft. I guess everyone gets to a point where they feel uninspired and do something less creative like read a book or play video games. I really need to draw more, it makes me feel good when I do.
some of the stuff I plan to work on is:

hey there welcome to CA
I can see you allready got a pretty good knownledge of anatomy
for the painting part i have some tips.
when painting try to work on a non white background, white hurts your eyes after a while and starts giving you a slightly different view on the colors you're using.
try using midtones and dont just darken your colors but try using other colors.
When you only use a darker version of a color it becomes pretty dull and dirty looking.
heres a very quick overpaint i did for you http://img12.imageshack.us/img12/4963/overpaintfp5.jpg
i hope this helps
keep it up
Drawn with a black ball point pen
Nice start..I like the ballpoint pen drawing. I like the way you did the shadows.
Blue Ink pen... I don't know why, but I LOVE pens. I have these skilcraft pens, I swear by them.
blue ink and colored pencils
Everything looks great here... really clean looking stuff.
I love the pendrawings now thats something i find a challenge.
Keep up love to see more.
u are very talented. would love to see more
Very nice drawings you've got here, keep at it!!! i like to see more plz!
Thanks for teh kind words on my sb!
I lol'd when I read this. I DO need to give up warcraft. It really is soul consuming.
I got stuck on a drawing the other day and thought "I''l just go play WoW for an hour or 2" a week later - During server maintenance - here I am thinking "why do I play that stupid game!!!!"
Haven't tried gears of war but I thought about playing fallout 3. I recently played and enjoyed the witcher.. I'd like to play another game like that.
Great Linework, I really like your drawings. In my opinion, the digitals aren't as strong as your drawings. I think you use to much black to darken colors. This gives them a bit of a dirty look. Maybe try to use other colors than just black. A dark brown, blue or red.
But i'm not a professional so i might be wrong about that Take care and keep it coming.
I really enjoy your work. It's all very clean and precise. I especially like your use of pens; quite impressive. Keep it up and definitely keep posting. Wonderful work.
Great work so far, I really like the reference pic. Keep it up!
Hi... your work is especially nice for someone who is self taught. Your lines are clean, your figures have good proportions and form. If you are looking for advice, and I'm not a pro but I'm passing along info from my college experience... you will really be helping your self to draw from life as much as possible. Hand Studies, self portraits in the mirror, statues out and about, still lifes with action fiures... anything, but the best exersize for drawing is to work from life. It's the best way to learn form.
Also I'd take a look at Algenpfleger's sketchbook thread. His progress is impressive.
Oh, and keep posting. Good Luck.
