FlameDragon Sketchbook (2013 Update)
New decade, new sketchbook! Since my last sketchbook I started back in 2007, I've seen (in my opinion) quite a leap forward. My artistic tastes have changed too. I have also been receiving art instruction, which I intend to keep up for quite some time. This is my most recent artwork (June 2013):

You're quite good at rendering shadows on your human figures. I like how smooth it is.
Everything is better with dinosaurs.

Thanks, I started shading that much due to my art teacher's influence, she showed me how realistic one can get the form to look by doing it.

As people have mentioned good control of pencil pressure. Would like to see some life drawings.

The life drawing I've been doing lately at the school has been portrait, but I will start doing the figure drawing sessions again soon at another place.

very smooth rendering, though they lose alot of movement and such in doing so, particulary it looks like a greyed out photo- still a decent feat. tho.

You really have a nice shading technique but something about the way you do the folds and creases in the skin is perhaps a little bit harsh. I see this in most of them but I will give you specific examples. The breasts on the first girl in post 16 and the legs on the woman in post 13 are looking more like stone or fabric than soft flesh. I am by no means an expert in any of this, I just wanted to suggest something that you could maybe work on to make your figures look more believable and less stiff. Anyway, you are quite talented, just keep pushing yourself into new places!
My Sketchbook would benefit from your critiques.

Thank you, I will work on that!

These are looking good. However I get a "papery" feel from your skin rendering. I think the issue is that your edges are too hard. Keep in mind that form shadows are soft while cast shadows have hard edges. Sometimes it doesn't hurt to simplify either. Find the bigger shapes and don't worry about every little crease or bump. Otherwise it can get unnecessarily busy and confusing for the viewer to read.
I also think you can erase some of the lines in your drawings. Since you model everything out in such detail, especially on this last drawing, you don't really need the lines that are facing the light. After all, they're not actually there.
These are my thoughts on it, anyway.

Nice figure drawing man, really.
Just try to have more contrast taking your time on those a bit more.
Also, try to draw forms using shadows and less the lines.
