    Nice work! I'd say try to make the skin look more like skin in your digital paintings, it doesn't shine like that. Unless it's wet. Anyway, try to unify the form so it's being lit by one light source. Don't just put a light value somewhere because it's there. Really analyze all the tones, try to figure out why, not what. Nice mass shown in the skulls.

    The key to getting better at anything is to do it a lot.

    the latest paintings are looking great, make sure you're doing some stuff from imagination too, and attempt to push atleast one of your studies to a more complete state

    keep it up! looking forward to seeing your progress!

    ...the imperfections make it interesting...

    Wow, you've chosen some great things to study and you've done an impressive amount of it. Keep at it and you'll be improving by leaps and bounds!

    (There's already visible improvement since you started the sketchbook.)

    My Sketchbook

    And then God said, "Let us make man in our likeness and our image. Let us make him ridiculously hard to draw so that poor artists everywhere will have to spend 10,000+ hours failing repeatedly before they can begin to capture the form and likeness onto a two-dimensional surface." And there was man. And it was good. And artists everywhere lost their minds.

    You've got the makings of a really good sketchbook here... a good eye for things and plenty of improvement for just two pages. I'd definitely listen to Dope Fiend's advice though - you seem to be doing plenty of quick studies which you can learn alot from, but you can learn just as much from longer studies when you can focus in on detail and bring things to a polished finish; you learn different skills from both so it's best to get a good mix of both. Also, balance your studies with work from imagination - this forces you to remember and apply what you've been learning, really makes you realise how much has actually stuck.
    Just keep trying a good balance of everything, and keep this momentum going! You've got alot of potential here

    Moved into an apartment and school started back up.
    But I have a scanner now, so that's good.
    Some pages from the last sketchbook I filled up, which was two months ago, working on killing another one right now.
    Looking back over the sketchbook I feel like I made no improvement, but I'm not sure.
    Also, looks like I'm limited to 7 pictures per post, so there will be several more
