Thread: A Modest Rabbit's Sketchbook

A Modest Rabbit's Sketchbook
I am making a sketchbook thread finally to basically monitor my own progress and get help from other artists. I really appreciate any and all input and advice, improving my skill level in drawing figures is my main goal. As a student currently, I am very determined to have a grade A+ portfolio by the time I graduate, which is within a year.
To start, I will just post some study-based sketches on the human figure. It is nothing interesting, but I love drawing the human form and I constantly am studying anatomy to improve my ability to do so and I also use photo reference a lot. Some of the drawings below are from live models, the hand drawings are of my own hand, and most of the muscle studies were referenced from Joseph Sheppard's Anatomy: A complete Guide for Artists. The very bottom sketches were referenced off master drawings.

Very good so far, your anatomy studies are very good. Keep up the good work.

While I'm gathering some more of my art for this thread, here is one of my most recent projects. It is something I first sketched out and then finished in Photoshop, made particularly for someone whom is very special to me. The character design is her own, I merely recreated it. Photo reference was used for the face.

I appreciate that boost of confidence Icedearth15876.
1st Image: I absolutely love creating and recreating monster designs. This is a species of monsters I created from my own imagination. I call them Lextrome. Their skin is a layer of ice and snow, and the second two versions have an obsession with hair. I really do not like how v2 turned out, I am in the process of recreating that one. This is a mix of traditional art and digital painting.
2nd Image: A digital painting in Photoshop, it was mainly done as practice of using textures. A photo reference was used for the face, everything else is from memory.
3rd Image: Fantasy portraits painted in Photoshop. Photo references were used for the faces on each.
4th Image: An illustration made for a class project. The character design is by a friend of mine, Kaitlyn.
5th Image: Digital painting done in Photoshop, photo references were used for the poses.
6th Image: Digital painting in Photoshop.

Thank you much for that compliment jamesession, though I know there's still a lot I have to learn.
Here's a bunch of traditional art, which I think I'm much better with than digital painting, though I prefer digital.

I very much appreciate the compliments, they're encouraging. My traditional pieces are all made with Prisma colored pencils, though the one with the lips I mixed Prismas with a little bit of Acrylic paint.
Below is a rough sketch for a character concept I'm currently working on. I'm going to paint it in Photoshop and see how it goes. 'Not that floating head though, it's weird... and random...
