Here's some more stuff, done the life study from a reference but never finished it, got bored and didn't really like how it was goin..
it'd be nice to have some tips in drawing clothes and cityscapes; i probably find them hardest, yet they're my favourite part of concept art (cities that is... not so much clothes , though complex suits are always cool). I'm not great with vehicles/robots either, so tips there would be great too
the drawing of another person is a drawin of my dad... while he was on the sofa =)
the enviro is just a wip base for a monster or something which i'll draw later

Amazing start to a sketchbook - so nice to look at all the skill and variety! Especially love the female torso in monochrome.
I also find cityscapes and clothes hard to get a grip on, so much structure in one and texture in another, really hard to learn. I guess the trick is to do life drawing and try to copy what you see as close as you can.. until you can! Then you'll have a 'bank' of textures, etc to use and improve without having the stuff in front of you.

You have a really great way with economy and implied detail! Some of these remind me of some of the posts that Mikko Kinunnen made a good while back about how far he could go with implying detail before the painting became unrecognizable. Cool stuff!
