Shading my friend, you need to work on that. Things are looking a little flat at the moment. Still, glad to have you in the Sketchbook section, see you around!

Not much you have posted till now so we could comment or critique, I mean these digitals looks good but I would be happy to see more of your work, maybe done with pencils.

Today it's a face I've been doing on and off for a few days, enjoy
some shading for you Walnut (referenced)
Edit: Scanners on the fritz and I'm much better off working on a digital medium anyway, do I have to sketch in lead or will PS sketching suffice? anyway, thanks for stopping by

Hey there! Thanks for droping in my sb.
I see that you also have potential, try to keep away from soft brushes ! ^^
Use chalk and Hard round with other dynamics set to pen pressure.
Looking forward for more of your work, so keep the flow coming!
P.S It is wise to generalize things that are in number of "bazylion" like hair for example. Simply draw some strands here and there in more important areas.

Skeleton Study: Will try focus on using harder burshes, can kinda see faults caused due to using the softer variety, well here is an attempt at a skeleton, oh and the blur next to it was supposed to be a hand, thanks for stopping by

Good, continue to work hard! If you give it your all, you will succeed!
The portrait looks good, but there are some issues with anatomy. The nose and shading of the neck suggests that her head is tilted upwards, but neither her eyes or mouth really says the same. Also, the distances from facial feature to facial feature isn't really suggesting tilting.
Take some time to study facial features at different angles, or draw from photos where people tilt their head. When drawing, try to really understand how and why the differences happen. Why can you see the underside of the nose? How can you light the neck to make it look like it's twisting or tilting? What distance is it from the nose to the mouth in different angles?
As far as the skeleton goes, it's a matter of measuring. Look closely at a skeleton reference. How long are the arms? The legs? How thick are the bones compared to each other? How wide is the body? Take time with these studies. Try to learn from them.
Icecold told you that you should use harder brushes, but he didn't tell you why. When you use harder brushes, you're forced to use more economic strokes and really think about where you place them. It will make you more confident and make your strokes look planned.
Now go draw some more!
A drawing a day makes the suck go away:
My sketchbook, because beating up the beef is the first step to make it good.

Ok i have another advice, leave the digitals for few months do theese kind of studies with charcoal or pencil in traditional sketchbook, it's harder thus brings better effects and satisfaction. If you do happen to work digitally again, dont' lighten up with white and don't darken with black. Use mid values darker red brighter red aka pink etc. Add in some more saturated colours in areas that are being hit by a strong light etc. Laso go andd check out bumskees digital painting in PS threads. Do this exercises everytime you have time to.
Become a slave of anatomy studies, many artists spent tons of hours on it, but now their work shine's as diamonds. Be patient, results will come. Cheers!
