Alright, here we go. I hurt my hand over the weekend so I wasn't able to draw much... so bear with me.
An environment, and two older drawings from quite a while ago.

I really love your environment painting. A lot of eye candy colors for me
Your other painting looks unfinished. I see you started putting in lighter values with her face but stop there. So I'm guessing you stopped because that's when your hand started hurting?
Your grayscale study is on the right track! Good proportion for the moment. Can't really critique from there as its still WIP, but I would watch your face alignment; it looks awkward; slightly tilted but her head looks straight up. Keep it up! I will come back to see how your WIP turns out.
The greyscale study is really nice too, but i think you might work on the face a little more. Keep up posting!
There's nothing really to say about; You're great!... Ofc there are some errors, but I really can't say how to fix them, so i don't know if such "critique" will help you ;/
I mean the angle of her hand in middle work, besides that her whole left arm looks too short.
Cheers, and can't wait to see more works from you!
Nice toningz, looks like you need to get some hands practice in there tho ;P
Hello, great to see you've started a sketchbook, you got some really nice works there. Too bad about your hand, what did happend? I've been unable to draw for almost 3 weks now due to tendonits so i know how bad it is to not be able to draw... Anyways looks like you got great perception of form in 3-dimensional space. I do think you might have to work a bit more on the hands. Especially on the 2nd painting in gray-scale It looks almost broken. And the overall of the painting is kind of dark. The feet on the femal studies look a bit of.
Other than that keep up the good work! This looks really promising
Thanks everyone! I don't have time at the moment to reply to every comment but I assure you that I did read everything. As far as the hands and feet are concerned, you guys are pretty much spot on. I am horrible at drawing hands so I usually either don't draw them or I leave them for the end - that's why, for example, my third drawing pretty much doesn't have hands... because I didn't draw them in! Haha. Bad habit, I know, but I'm working on it.
As far as my own hand goes, it's just because I was drawing a bit too much with my tablet over the weekend and some of the joints started to feel stiff and painful. It's getting better now, so thank you for the concern.
Also, I won't be finishing that unfinished study. I don't usually pick up old studies because I prefer to move on to new ones... unless of course I was planning on doing a long study, in which case I would.
Some quick drawings from last night. I figured since everyone was barking at me about my hands, I might as well do some hand studies. Didn't have much time after I got home so I spent about 20 mins on each.
I really struggle with getting details into my digital paintings. Someone once suggested that I should do still life studies to remedy that, so I'm thinking I might have to set one up this weekend.
Anyway, these are not the best but hell, at least I got some practice in.

More hands. Some are from reference, and some are Mucha studies. The guy's hands are amazing, what else can I say?
I seem to be improving... slowly. I'm focusing on value so I won't be posting very many color pieces for a while.
More hands. Feeling lazy tonight... I really hate this feeling. Bleh.
I think the forum broke while I was trying to do that last post. Let's try this again.

great hand studies, keep up the good work!
i also have trouble with hands and feet, i know how difficult it is to draw it, mainly to have the patience to observe the shapes.
mucha? alphonse maria mucha? i didn't know him, good advice, thanks.
Much better, tubes is the secret to hands.
Hey there , nice sketches i like hands studies
