Your observational drawings aren't bad. I'd suggest incorperating what you see in those into your non-reference pictures (in other words, use reference! )
Generally a good way to see how much you know the figure is by practicing without and with reference. The difference between the two will bring out the flaws.

And the update is...
This was a practise for heads.
I think i will do more of them and after a time more complicated shapes
[Edit:] Okay, the perspective is wrong... Don't look at the perspectice xD Next time it would be better!

I already see improvements from your first posts up to present day. You have talent, man, and i see great potential, you just need more practice (but who doesn't). I notice you have a copy of Hogarth's book, which is good BUT DON'T treat it like a rulebook. I made this mistake and found i was limiting myself and getting very frustrated. Also, practice simple excercises when you can't give full concentration on a sketch (perhaps when your out and about, at your friends, etc...). I say practice simple shapes such as cubes, cones, cylinder, and sphere. Get comfortable with these objects and then start placing multiple objects in one space. This will indeed refine your skills. 8)

It's really nice to hear that i have potential
Yeah, i also think that i have to practice more, but often i do other things when i have the time...
So I tried to do a few environments.
Here is one of it.
But i failed with the water...
I picked the colours from a reference picture to get a feeling for it

I like the studies you've been doing. Do some eye studies?

Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook Silwynar.
Your Hogarth studies are good, and your observational work is good too. It might help to look at other writers/artists such as Loomis, Bridgman or Vilppu, and see if you like studying their work, and if you can integrate what you learn into your work from life.
Studying those shapes, forms, skeletons, anatomy will all help you in the future when you're building your own characters.
Enjoy, and keep it up!

Nice to see you're practicing enviroments too! And yay on the noses You may want to try using less bold lines, instead hinting at the shapes with shading instead.. depends what style you aim for. The noses in that post have good shapes, are looking a bit cartoony though. Still, good work, keep it up!
Insanity is the key!
Also, studies are a key. And passion is a key. Also, so are inspiration, motivation and dedication. Talent can be a key. Insomnia can also be a key, depression is a sad rusty little key. Damn, artists need one hell of a keyring.
