the first pic of the sniper with long hair is more recent, but its just a digital picture
PS- i dont know if the Russians let their women snipers grow or keep long hair down like that, seems like it might get in the way

Good start for this sketchbook! Your drawings are good but I think you're characters look a bit stiff. Your rendering could use some work as well. Do some life drawings and anatomy studies and you'll definitely improve on those areas if you spend enough time practicing.
Great work though! Would be cool to see something different though.
actually i used to lifedraw quite often, but these are all from my imagination. granted some may be a little stiff but i dont always follow the most efficient direction in completing sketches. i probably draw too many portraits and usually the detail crumbles from the neck down. it may be vain but i kinda like not using much reference. if anyone wants to suggest a scenario for me to draw, or even help me with the composition id appreciate it
ps- lol no offense jackpot but if i wanted stiff id study ur sketchbook jk

Good update man like the variety! You're able to capture the head quite well but it starts getting a little wonky when you start turning it in perspective. The man with the glasses should have more to his skull in the back end, looks like it got chopped off, his neck is way too small as well. Other than that I'd like to see these drawings scanned, the digital camera definitely makes it look cheaper than it is!
Yes man! You're a drawing machine! Love it, love it, love it.
A lot of your work is really sketchy with a few exceptions. I'd like to see you slow down a little and work on just one image... perhaps Audie Murphy mowing down a whole squad of German Stormtroopers? Or Vasily Zaytsev taking aim down his Mosin-Nagant? Take your time (this is my biggest downfall ).
ya stalker thats my biggest issue as an artist too i think i have ADHD. ill make an honest effort from this point on to finish things i start, but sometimes i live to regret it... i mean, it just looks better to me unfinished sometimes. i just watched enemy at the gates, i love zaytsev, im not sure if i can picture audie murphy shooting all those germans... if i drew vasily, would i draw movie jude law or real life vasily?
