    I run a free figure drawing studio out of my local library once a month. Some various work.

    Hi Adam,
    great stuff you have in here!
    Looks like you allready studied a lot.
    There are two things I would suggest to work on:
    First of all, I miss the color. Color is a great tool for a lot of things like expressing a certain feeling or to sell a material to the viewer and a lot more.
    (You may allready know that, but maybe you want to remember it)
    The other thing is, that the values in your pictures seem to be sometimes a bit too midtone, so they look a bit flat.
    Bur overall, fantastic start for a sketchbook.
    I´m waiting for more!

    Thanks for the feedback Arne.

    I have studied for quite a few years (and i'm glad you think it shows!) I've got quite a bit of learning to do for sure.

    I couldn't agree more about the flatness of the values in some of these. It's something i'm always vaguely aware of, but your words really motivate me to improve my technique!

    Thanks Knoxie!!

    I really want to make it into TAD proper (hopefully with a scholarship), so I'm working hard to beef up my portfolio and apply what i learn.

    I like this one, looks pretty cool. Got guns and the coat and I'm dumb when it comes to perspective.
