I don't believe in talent, i believe in hard work.
"Don't say i'm on a different page. Im a completely different book."
haha great stuff, you should check out algenfledger's sketchbook http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...d.php?t=114449 ..
He started kind of similar to you.. and he completely transformed his art into an amazing level... very inspirational for anyone that's willing to push it hard enough...
Anyways.. keep it up! Do studies! Looking forward for your next update
Today i went and talked to the Dean of Media Arts and Animation.
He gave me some pointers on how i can improve my drawings. He told me i need to draw with more of a sense of construction and form.
So with that said he pointed out some books that could help me improve the quality and consistency of my work.
I am deeply grateful for this critique because i didnt realize before that i was missing this piece of the puzzle.
Through proper constructive technique i hope to one day have the ability to transpose a character into any perspective just by rotating its base components on various axis.
Anyways. I need serious help with perspective, so I'm going to get some tutoring.
If anyone has tips please let me know.
I want to be the best, and i will just have to keep working hard. One day i will get there.
Just some more doodles and a lazy friday afternoon.
the lips are wrong... and the face should be more tilted to the right. And the face needs to be angled slightly more to the lower right. Jawline is a tad low.
But the nose is neat!
(why cant i see this stuff when i am drawing.)
side note: im pretty cuteh in this pic. :p

Definately need to get working on anatomy. I highly recommend the books of Andrew Loomis, due to internet availability and the clarity of his teachings. Try Google his name, or better still, I'm pretty sure there is a site called saveloomis.org where you can download his books. Some others include George Bridgman, Burne Hogarth and Vanderpoel. Get studying from some of that material and you should be off to a great start. I also second rossipoo's suggestion, check out algenpfleger's productivity throughout his thread, a true example of what dedication can do (in fact I'm trying to copy his method [his productivity that is, not necessarily his style, though it is excellent]).
Anywho, keep that mindset and keep up the good work! You're off to a nice start!
