This is hella good! Your coloring blows me away. I say work on the boobage a bit (yeah, I call them boobage), and I'd really like to see some action scenes or perspective views because I really think you can do it.
Keep up the work!
DK sketch - Thanks, haha yeh I should of realised that lol, I've never really tried painting water before, I'll remember that ,
LAL - Thanks man,
Lav - Thanks, Im always looking to improve
Garble Arch - Thank you! Yes, I will work on the cleavage! dynamics as well, I've usually avoided that, because I'm paranoid about proportions haha.
So, heres some anatomy studies referenced from a bit of Loomis and some Burne Hogarth,
Your linework shows a great improvement. Keep up the good job.
Thanks pixel Cheetah
Heres some more line work, self portrait I did from the mirror, thats why Im so expressionless lol, eyes are a little to big ut other than that I think it looks like me,
Also been looking at some of Joe Madureira's sketches and the warcraft comic stuff as well, pretty cool stuff so I did this ,

I like the characters alot, for me personally it's hard to come up with some cool designs. For the environment, I think it's not that bad. I would suggest doing some photostudies of environments (this is a good site: terragalleria) so you can get more comfortable with environments. I can also suggest keeping your values closer together the more you further in the background. Also keep the saturation low the more you progress to the background.
Hope this helps .
I wanted to let you know you've got a nice grapple on male anatomy and you use the block technique really well. I myself need to spend more time on it. Congrats on these studies at such a young age, I myself was focused on pencil and nature at your age. Your style is very line oriented which is awesome especially for comics. I feel now that you are getting into painting you should start thinking of Shapes (essentially thicker and thinner lines). Keep Drawing ALSO NEVER STOP even if you feel bad!
I was trying to render this more than usual, but Im not sure about the quality, maybe I went to far dunno

Sorry, didnt reply earlier -
Lyno - Thanks for the tips, the site looks good as well, very helpful thanks.
Jatari - Thanks
Lav - yeh, thanks, I'll try to go darker
Heres some photoshop sketches, felt like using some cool paper texture as well;
Some referenced anatomy stuff
These are just from Imagination, I think their alright,
hello! that very last image you posted seems to be a large improvement for you in terms of value... just continue to darken things, and from there you can experiment more with lighting and highlights... but for now, darken!
oh, and I noticed that your semi skeleton monstrosities, as interesting as they are, do not really resemble human skeletons... unless that was your intent, I advise that you actually study some such skulls and bones...
haha, allright, I need to upload my sketchbook at some point now...
Hey Zypherax, thanks , Yea I agree, though I wasnt exactly looking for realism at the time, either way your probably right,
Leg studies, since I figured mine suck, another figure from memory, and some character,
Some dude I drew in english today lol
Darknight thanks, Im glad you took the time to show me this, it is extremely helpful, it will definately help me improve
and this started as some sketch,
And did some more - sketching on photoshop
Used some colours on this golem thing, and the other day I was playing around with alchemy and came up with these,

some faces today, the top 3 are from imagination and I did a few from reference but they didnt turn out great, I find working from reference if very good for learning but its quite restricting
