Wow, your pencil renderings are really fantastic! The horned fella is looking really good, got nothing to critique on there. But on the warhammer dudes, the anatomy is a bit wonky. You seem to make the legs a bit short and not thick enough considering they're wearing armour-plating.
And keep those female figure studies up!

Nice start on your third sketchbook.
As LORD M already said, keep an eye on anatomy.
Show us more!

rendering on those dudes at the top is ace, and your female studies are looking great.

I was starting to wonder if you were still posting! You might want to check the SB link in your signature, it ain't working right.
Nice start to the new SB, the figure drawings are looking good. Keep up the anatomy studies and everything will start coming together.
I also think you could re-visit the colour scheme on the cultists, you can do better than that.

Reply time! Thanks to all for bombing my new sketchbook. And apologies for the lack of drawings in this post; I've been academic today (books without pictures).
shumizu - Thanks. I will indeed keep going!
r y a n o i r - Haha, thanks Ryan. Remember though, not all things can be taught.
LORD M - Thanks for the kind words! As for the Chaos Cultists, all anatomical tinkering was conscious. I made their legs slightly shorter in an attempt to make them appear squat. I also increased the breadth of their shoulders... think human anatomy crossed with a gorilla. If you're familiar with the background of Warhammer 40'000, then you'll know why I tinkered!
Ivan Turcin - Thanks. Keeping an eye on anatomy is an obvious must!
Raffix - Thanks!
AlstonInk - Haha, yeah man, it's been a while since I was last active on here; I even received an automated email asking me to come back! Thanks for the heads-up on the sig, it's all fixed now. As for anatomy, yep, it's a given, especially around here where it's part of the creed The cultists though, or the one with colour... I don't understand what's wrong...

I'm not saying anything's wrong. It might just come down to personal preference but I thought the colours in the first pic in post #2 detracted from the piece as a whole. I thought they were bland and a little muddy, making the image hard to read.
I think you've got a very unique and decisive rendering style with the pencils and I wouldn't mind seeing that part of you somehow translated into the way you apply colour

AlstonInk - Ah, now I see. A tad muddy it is, but that's the way I wanted it. That particular cultist, as a character in the WH40k universe, is a typical foot slogger type in an army of millions, serving the extra-galactic Chaos god of pestilence, Nurgle (quite evil). The reasoning behind it was that he spends his life in the trenches. Itís only a sketch too! Anyway, thanks for the compliments on my rendering style! Itís not fantastic in my eyes and Iíve tried translating it across to the painting side of things a few times but Iím yet to make it look half-decent.
And here's my next wip...
