I agree with Novbert in all regards. You definetly loose alot once you start "rendering" the images. The great dynamism and looseness that you have in the sketches is superb!
Keep it up!
I love your way of grawing, so rich in energy and vivid! I want to see more
was "drawing", not "grawing"!!!
Whoa so many Replies!
@MattGamer: Yes I'll definitely do! Thanks
@UmpaArt: Thank You!

@dessinateurimpulsif: Didn't know him. Looks good!
@arestocrat: OK thanks!
About my "inked" Girls: Once the sketch is done I put a piece of tracing vellum Paper on top and I try to draw the Image with more Speed and less fear, with more rounded lines. Got this Technique from Alberto Ruiz, who is an aaaawesome artist and Girls-Drawer!
Here's a selfie:
---DAS IST FANTASTICH.....
Wonderful line drawing..... I really liked 'em... Keep creating mate........

I dig the girlface, and the rinoceros from the last post (though the back looks kinda weird, also it's back legs look a bit too small). Some nice guitar studies there also, though I'd say the linework needs some more refinement and there are some structural issues on them here and there.
Careful now! You can only say you're using another artist's method if you've spent a reasonable time studying that method. Most of Ruiz's sketches look fairly simple in terms of structure but there's also a great deal of knowledge about female anatomy, well designed exaggerations and also a lot more detail. I'd say you should do some master studies on those Ruiz sketches to check wheter you can replicate the look and feel of those pics with the method you use or not. If you can't that means you don't know enough about it to use it properlyAbout my "inked" Girls: Once the sketch is done I put a piece of tracing vellum Paper on top and I try to draw the Image with more Speed and less fear, with more rounded lines.

@novbert: It's not 'his method', it's basically Inking. I dont try to copy his drawings or style.
He described this method as good for building line confidence, on whatever subject matter, not only girls. If you're interested, here's what he wrote:
When I started drawing women I wished for long flowing lines to match the ideas in my head. I found that the vellum paper finish (tracing, onion paper) against the wax of the Col-erase pencil made my lines smoother. The strokes seemed to flow with minimum effort. I stopped using vellum but I do believe it helped a lot. If you're looking to achieve more fluid & cleaner lines, give tracing paper a try
After you have done the preliminary sketch, lay another sheet of vellum on top and go over it with the pencil as if you were inking it. Only this time you draw faster and without fear, using less lines. I used to do this several times until the drawing became sharper and streamlined.
By the third or fourth re-draw, you will clearly see thedifference between the first and last sketches.
For really long lines, do what architects and industrial designers do when they project, put a dot on each end and draw the line in one take from dot to dot.
The idea is to gain confidence in your stroke, not much different than playing baseball or throwing a football around, the more confidence the more chances you'll take. By drawing on top of your own drawing you won't be ruining the original so you can be as bold as you can be.
that last one is trés cool.
