    That's the spirit man, keep posting those pencils.
    Try to adjust brightness/contrast with some photo editing stuff.

    nice shading. seems like you're going for the traditional academic approach of drawing light contours and then shading in. keep it up. your structure seems okay. but try to work on 3D structure more - go to life drawing and analyze the figure in perspective, with foreshortning etc.

    I think your time would be much better spent focusing on analyzing what you're drawing rather than mechanically copying it. The copies are quite good, but you'll never learn to draw that way, only to copy, which is rather different. (I learned this the hard way.)

    By analyzing, I mean that instead of copying what you see, try to think of it in terms of 3-dimensional shapes, and then draw those. It is for this purpose that most good art teachers recommend learning to draw from life before attempting to draw from photographs; when you draw from life, you are forced to think in terms of 3-d shapes instead of just transcribing 2-d shapes from one surface to another.

    I would also recommend focusing on linework and ignoring the rendering, which is a waste of time when doing studies, imo. If your linework is good, rendering is easy, but the reverse is not true.

    I now understand what you guys are saying about looking at what im drawing in 3d rather than just copying what i see. Ive been studying anatomy a lot, and now i see that it is much easier and faster too look at something and draw it not by just looking at the reference but thinking about what it would look like from all directions, and drawing it by form rather than drawing it exactly like i see in the photo, great advice.

    Thanks Geth, I have the software for digital painting and animation, but I've found out that without a very strong knowledge of the basics, artwork in other mediums doesn't go so well, so I've back tracked to step one to master the fundimentals before trying everything else. (And it has been helping me a lot)

    This was a request from my girlfreind. *Justin Bieber* I still need a lot of practice with hair, there MUST be an easier way than trying to draw each individual hair, any advice would be great!
