Awright, well... I'd like to say hello to all Conceptart.org community in first place and, mainly, congratulate you guys for this incredible feedback you give to begginer artists in order to help em improve their art. That's actually what motivated me to keep visiting this forums aswell as coming here to build up this thread in which I'm planning to post my own sketches.
So ern well, I'm Andrew, a 21 years-old Biology undergraduate student from Brazil. I was leaned to art as long as I can remember, but just about 3 years ago I'd say this particular subject turn out to me as something I would like to work with, as a professional.
So, basically, I'm willing to be utterly overwhelmed with book suggestions, general criticism and anything that can help me improve my art.
Thank you guys, in advance!

You have some pretty interesting characters but your faces and anatomy need some work. Check out Burne Hogarthe, He is like the master of anatomy.

Thanks TayMC! Also I appreciate your advice regarding Burne Hogarth, I got his book tittled "Drawing Dinamic Hands", it's preety neat! I was thinking in adquiring the whole collection once ago, funny to see that he's my first recommended book here. =D
Thank you once again!
So ern, yesterday I've been reading "Drawing the Human Head" by Burne Hogarth methods, and after finishing the basics on structure form, I started to try out some examples by myself, before go'n on the specifics sections of the face.
So ern here's what I've got so far
Here's my latest sketches: I took some quite time study'n heads and hands, so I'm practing these for now. You can clearly see that my legs/feet proportions aren't really the best you've seen, can't you!? xD
Does any of you guys have good suggestions on what should I focus as a beginner?!
My interest range is pretty wide, but I'd wish to get more into landscapes and environment universe.
Also, I feel a deep need to get used to correct shapes and shadows
Please guys, I would seriously appreciate some good book recommendations here.
Well, here's what I've been focusing the whole day on!! I'm basically reading a chapter of random Burne Hogarth books and practicing what I've learned on theory. More to come guys:
And no, I didn't mean to make a crucifixion at first hahaha =P
I'm sure that if you keep practicing hard and not mindlessly (not just trying to fill up a sketchbook) then you'll definitely improve.
Also, apparently Hogarth books are really shitty. There are better books out there, I found a list:

Ye, it's always good to check out different authors!! Thank you Roboko, I appreciate that!
- Drawing The head and hands; and
- The eye of the painter
The whole collection seems to be very interesting, I'll be sure to get myself grounded on them xD.
Long period of college tests but once finished, art takes place!
So yeah!! Back on track after a while!!
Just before any new drawings, I'd like to say I just got myself started at SCULPTING! How awesome is that? Never thought it could be such an addicting hobby! Man, I'm totally indulging my cravings for it!
This is my first model, being sculpted after some humanoid, dunno exactly which one it's gonna be! Already done with the armature, and basic clay addings...
Tomorrow I'm go'n through the first layer of muscles. Oh, and it's probably say'n "Hi" to reopen my sketchbook hehe.
Back on track!! I've finally gotten a tablet!! So here's one of my very first pieces! Just to bump this thread up! Hope to be posting more and more in the next days!
It has being sooo cold here in Brazil!! Looks like winter has finally come...

Pretty background , and your portrait has a pile of improvement.

Better keep posting!!!
