    More value studies. The planar face was from some photos someone posted on cghub, I can't find the link
    The references for the figures are from stock photography artists on Deviantart, the first one is from Mjranum's stock, the next I believe is from Samiguy101 and the third one is from Strobeglow.

    Love the figure studies and how you are sticking with b&w to focus on values. Just keep at it!

    Really great improvement, and you're still quite young so you got loads of time ahead of you.
    I'd like to see more imaginative work from you as it's mostly studies. Show us how you're applying them!

    llex_paul, thanks man, the last two studies of the men probably took around than 20-30 mins each. I usually lay in a quick sketch underneath to work as a guide then its really just all about grouping the values and painting the edges to be softer or harder as you go. I try to study from photos with very coherent lighting because that sort of lighting allows the form to read a lot better and gives you more definite shadow shapes to work with.

    Here's a couple more.

    llex - Hey, no problem

    Haven't posted in a while, but here's the last batch of these figure studies before I move onto something else.

    Since I haven't uploaded in ages here's a barbarian concept. February flew by, let myself slip and didn't do half as much work as I could've done Going to get back on track this month.
    edit: made some revisions to this guys armour, I think it looks a little better.

    some drapery and clothing studies, I don't do enough stuff like this, and I figured its about time I did some studies of everyday clothing too. Last one was the most challenging, didn't exactly like the attire but the lighting looked good to study from. Baggy snowboarding pants are way cool! :D

    Really wonderful studies. You've got those proportions down just right, and your value work is excellent. I also really like your character designs. Keep posting!

    You've come a long way from the start of your sketchbook.
    Lovely solid figures!
    You're slowly doing more and more designs. Take your time with the fundamentals, because you can't know enough fundamentals.
    To give your characters and extra edge you could use a textured brush for the fabric materials, a smooth one for the metal work, another for wood and so on. That way, apart from the specular, the different materials can be easily distinguished.
    Keep up the good work.

    Chevy, Sleep and Tom - Thanks! Too true Sleep, and I can see where you're coming from with the materials, I do have a lot of trouble with defining them and I think it has a lot to do with the value ranges of different materials too.
    Something from my sketchbook with a layer mask-

    This was a very small section of a bigger composition that just wasn't working out. Basically cropped it and carried on with this region.

    Not exactly anything like his style, but I was feeling inspired by Richard Anderson's sketches recently and decided to whip out a brush pen.
    First few are studies, I don't post traditional stuff often enough anymore! D:
