Hello, and welcome to my sketchbook!
A little bit about myself:
I'm 21-year-old guy from Finland. I pretty much started to really practice drawing only less than a year ago. I'm trying to become better at art and get to study architecture in uni next year, so any and all critique is most appreciated!

Let's start with a self-portrait:
Today's torso studies:
Some anatomy studies from yesterday, done with pencil & ballpoint. Hopefully more to come
architecture, i suggest you look into perspective, buildings, industrial design maybe measurement drawings. as for your anatomy, it needs alot, but i would say consentrate on landscapes and enviroments stuff like that might help more. try speedpainting on photoshop
Thanks for the advice I'm planning on moving to enviros next.
Okay, little more anatomy stuff - a bit looser this time. Oh man my shadings suck. Some hands and feet, my own feet and doodle:

Okay here's what I'm been up to - trying to figure out how shadows work. Some orthographical and some in perspective. These are from Francis D.K Ching's "Architectural Graphics". Having some trouble, mistakes at least in fifth and sixth pic.

Ah, nice start you have here.
I quite like the perspective studies, and the torsos you did up there.
I have no input when it comes to landscapes and the like but I'd say when you're doing figure studies it's good to know more about what lies under the skin, so looking up anatomy is good, I have an anatomy book myself called 'pocket anatomy' by Christopher Joseph, it's really handy to have.
And another thing that's good for figures is self portraits (which I see you've done) and of course, Loomis. If you google loomis you're bound to come across his books which are brilliant.
Keep up the good work!
You're getting better every time you post, keep working on your anatomy and shading, anatomy is one of the most used things in art. Other than that keep up the great work.
Never Attempt the Possible;attempt the impossible and even if you fail,you'll fall among the stars.
Been drawing and painting a lot this weekend o/ All these made in two days on the course. Made on given task and time between 30min - 3h. No energy to shoot these properly and put here... Edit: btw, those aren't vaginas in the down-left corner althought it might seem so in this pic...
