Good day! I was introduced to this site by a good friend of mine because my ultimate career goal is to become a conceptual artist. "What better place to start than here?" I figured. I signed up at DeviantArt about half a year ago, but apparently, if you want good, honest critiques, you have to subscribe. This site looks to be far more professional and I feel that I'm going to learn a lot more here.
Here's some of my most common work, and what I will admit is my comfort zone: creatures and monsters.

Now for what's out of my comfort zone: Observational work.
Through my short years in high school, I've found out that I have a fondness for drawing skulls of various animals. I love the visual intricacy of their structures, and the potential for powerful symbolism which they carry.

Here's a few more in my favored medium; graphite.
My attempt here was to take a darker approach to some classic videogame characters. My goal was to deviate from their original designs but keep their identities easily recognizable. I'm not too confident that I accomplished said goal, but I enjoy these designs nonetheless.
Oh, and there's also Kermit during his service in 'Nam.
This has a lot of potential. I love the redesigns of video game characters.
You should definitely do more studies of form, though. Some of your pictures seem a little flat.

Thank you. I definitely plan on making more videogame redesigns in the future. I've recently been working on a version of Kirby not too unlike the Pacman seen here.
Aside from that, here's a few other things I've been working on recently.

some older stuff, circa 2007/early 2008 (save for the last one with the guns, which was finished earlier this year)
Thanks! but probably not
I hail from Greeley. I may move to Fort Collins or Denver at some point in my future, though.
Also, I've done some more work to the drawing of the futuristic Spartan.

Here's some more! Can you guess which one was done almost three years ago?
Some figure drawings and anatomy related things, which I don't draw nearly enough of. That will of course change in the near future.
thanks for stopping by my sb!, I see you have lots of imaginative drawings which is really cool to see, I've been so focused on practicing the technical side of things I gotta do more of these type of drawings.
No problem. Hah, I think we could both benefit from trying following each other's path from time to time. I don't do nearly enough studies or figure drawings.
I sketched a few things last night, so I'll scan and post them later today.
...or, you know, when my scanner doesn't suck.

I'm in the process of figuring out what the hell's wrong with my scanner, but in the meantime, here's more of my work. Some of it's old, and some of it's new.
some nice weapon concepts, and youre moving in a good direction toward anatomy. id love to see more studies and character stuff!
Hey! This is a great start! The guns are right on the nose. Definitely work on more accurate life studies-and study form more. Anatomy will also make you more comfortable with figures. I really like what you got going too- the creature are proper creepy!
Haha, I'm loving that Sonic!
I'd say the most important thing is to concentrate on anatomy/ proportions for now and apply that to your future concepts. And since you like to draw loads of creatures then study more animal anatomy etc (although sadly I don't know of any good animal anatomy books, though there are obviously some out there!).
I thank you all for your suggestions and feedback! Here's some sketches I've done in recent days. I will gradually edit this post to add more.
oh wow! Your artwork is so very awesome!
Alright! Many thanks for all the feedback and comments. Here's some more stuff, and I feel I must warn of the inclusion of a nude drawing. (I'm not sure if it warrants changing the title of the thread or not; an answer on the matter is welcome.)
Yeah, I know. I'm not drawing nearly as much as I should. haha, I need to stop playing Killzone 2 (easier said than done), but I'll get to it eventually.
For now, here's some horses! Normal and not-so-normal.

I really like your imagination! I'm in a similar area. Dark stuff is just cooler.
Have you checked out Wayne Barlowe's work?
The first drawing is an unfinished piece from about a year ago. I can't remember exactly, but I most likely discontinued it in favor of another project or due to pure laziness.
I've been trying to see what medium is personally best for me when it comes to landscapes. One in marker, another in charcoal. I like both for different reasons, but I'm leaning more towards charcoal right now.
Here's another thing! I must say I really do enjoy drawing with graphite.

My uncle from El Paso stopped by for the weekend. I haven't seen the man in years, and he asked me to draw something for him. How could I say no?
Drawing detailed faces is usually a nightmare for me, but I really enjoyed doing this.
Another couple of drawings. I felt like doing something with one of those quick sketches, and the second thing was just for the sheer fun of it.
