I am completely and utterly in love with your 16th pic on your first post.
And your entire sketchbook, for that matter. You are amazing; I can tell already! Keep it up!
Some nice stuff here. Love all the experimenting with different media.
On a few of your digital pieces, I just wish they were tighten up / sharpened abit more.
Looking forward to seeing more stuff.

Great work, great composition and shapes. You seem like a hardworking artist, lots of variation and experimentation, all good stuff.

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.

Oh hi little explosion of creativity, nice to meet you.
D'awww i love the roughness of your pictures. And the compositions!
Its so much fun to browse through your works.
This is basically all I can say, for I can't give you any advice.
Keep it up!
WIP , working on cities and scifi stuff, more to follow!
@Jansi and Uhuhase
Thank you for your comments =) I'll try and do more life drawings and still life with textured materials =)
