Really like the second sketch on here. Your stuff is really loose and lovely. I agree with TayMC about liking to see some more finished stuff. Keep up the good work, can't wait to see more

Thank you guys. I knew I'd have to elaborate. The first post is all imaginative work. It is a series of process drawings for an upcoming composition. This is usually how I start out, trying to pull ideas out of the ether and get them down on paper. Then, when I see something I like, I start to expand on it. The idea behind this piece is a shamanic priestess entering a journey. More on that later. Think I should move that stuff to the WIP section?

Nice start so far. You really capture gesture well. You can actually feel the movement of your characters. All I can say is Keep on drawing. I look forward to more of your posts.

Very pretty drawing in your thumbnail (first attachment).
I think your linework would benefit from swinging your arm a bit more... I'm seeing your gesture work as being very stop-and-start (choppy). As such (and it's just a guess) it probably took you quite a while to draw the SP as well as the woman in the first drawing? If not, I'll back safely away
But you've obviously got a keen observational eye, and you certainly are making exhilarating sketches. Keep it up and thanks

Very nice delicate drawing style. The faces especially are quite striking.
Correct me if I’m wrong but it appears to me that you are hesitant when it comes to drawing the rest of the body. The first picture for example has a great face and good torso but then the rest disappears. I think the same can be said for a lot of the other drawings. Things fade away or are very hazy. This can be a stylistic choice but I think when doing studies it is good to draw the whole subject and be precise about it. If something is hard then one should do more drawings of it. That’s enough rambling from me..
I look forward to seeing more or your work.
