Ever since I started working toward a degree in mechanical engineering, I've had zero time to sit down and do some actual drawing, so a few months ago I bought a pad of cartridge paper and a pen, so I could doodle on the train, between classes, during classes...
the following is anything notable I have in there

When I looked at your drawings, they blew me away with amazement because I could tell how dedicated you are with hatching and details. The anatomy of people look quite structured, lines of drawings look quite simple yet complicated at same time, and keep it up with a fantastic job.
What an interesting mind you have. My favourite is the guitar player.
I didn't expect to get positive reactions so soon. Huge thanks to everyone, you've stimulated me to work on these with increased fervour, expect updates soon.
FourTonMantis-the only one in ballpoint is the fourth (sphere, horse guy) the rest is 0.4 pilot.
I can't help but be impressed. That hatching is something that takes patience and a lot of skill and your ink drawings show you have both qualities. I love the woman at the top of your second post. I just think you handled the drapery in an interesting way.
I don't want to see my juvenile sketchbook die so soon, so here's a WIP.
New batch of stuff
thanks a BUNCH to everyone!
Diarum- Albrecht Durer is my main source of inspiration, particularity his engravings and cross-hatchings, I tend to study his work and implement in my own
Finished the bird guy, he's a character of mine, not sure what I'll do with him though.
more to come soon!

Here's a study of Anatomy/fabric that turned out kinda cool so I'm posting it.
I'm always looking to improve my methods both in form and rendering, if anyone has a tip I'll be happy to hear.
something long neglected...
I have zero time to draw nowadays with Thermodynamics, Hydrodynamics and classical Dynamics choking up my schedule...I miss the days when things were nice and static.

My latest, I wonder if anyone might recognize the language..
I don't recognize the language in that last one, but I can see your skills from a mile away. Looking forward to your next post!

NickyBeats, Jenivera: Thanks! I'm glad you enjoy my work.
This one I'm not sure what to do with, maybe I should just leave it as it is?
Lost my concentration and screwed up the drapery around her thighs, which is infinitely annoying.
I hope it's still salvageable, ink does not forgive mistakes easily..
This has been sitting in my unfinished drawer for 2 years, yesterday I got around to finishing the rodent man. Bird guy and rodent man are characters of mine, bird guy shows up in some of my other stuff.
done in mechanical pencil
really evocative style. nice sense of solidity.
is this stuff just all off the top of your head? or planned?
Medusoid- Thanks, I am familiar with Edward Gorey, his stuff is outright creepy..definitely my kind of art. I've never seen cross-hatching in colour, it sounds twice as difficult to blend both colours and texture, for now I'm looking to improve my grayscale.
Nonplussed- Thanks! Some of my stuff is preplanned, some tends to change as I go along.
Finals are finally over so I have some time on my hands. Here's a sort of anatomy study of various diseases.
