The rhino is fantastic. I'm curious what are your art goals? Are you aiming at being a painter?
This question caught me off guard and I thought I should answer right when I saw it.

I want to understand anatomy and be able to put it into practise designing believable creatures and characters.
The painting is just to be able to learn form and anatomy. When you can paint a little it is a lot easier to get people to sit still in front of you to study, many times naked.
I hope that answers your question. If it doesn't please ask again.
I did this as an acrylic painting and than painted over it in Photoshop. About an hour each.
Was at a friends place in LA over the weekend and he had a baby skeleton so we both sketched it.
Great works so far, the first one is the best. Keep up the good work.
Drawing of my wife
I wanted to using black and white colored pencils on toned paper to see what it was like. I had never drawn this way and wanted to try it out.
Anyways my wife brought me a pic of her trying on her wedding dress before we got married and wanted me to draw it.
This is what I came up with.
The paper was pastel paper with a big tooth so it was tough to get good detail and contrast.
I also should have made her pose a little dynamic, but I guess you give the client what they ask for.
Anyways, this is what it turned out like.

I like most of the stuff here.
The Caravaggio study is very nice valuewise, especially the muscles on the crucified look very nice and detailed.
The quill creature is also great, but the rhino looks better. Especially the shadow of the horm. Good job there.
The womans portrait looks nice, only the lips bug me, because they look detached. Check out some fotos and study how lips attach to the skin of the face.
The skeletal baby looks cut, but where the hell did he have one of those from?
The material on the wedding dress is also very nice and looks silky.
All in all, the only thing to ask from you is more stuff.
Cheers and welcome
Thank you so much for the comments Janos.
I may go back and fix the lips soon.
And more is on the way.
Woah! Your painting and rendering is crazy! Keep it up I can't wait to see more
Thanks for the comment jackpot.
