Hi, I really like the cat and the dog. You are good doing fur. But you could be better in figure drawing. Keep going.

Thank you Cojac! Yes I know I have a lot of work to do on figure drawings. I have started to learn anatomy and started reading Andrew Loomis's and Vilppu's books. I hope I will start improving little by little (and have the patience to keep learning very hard)!

Nice start to a sketchbook. Don't worry too much about the figure drawing, it is one of the hardest possible subjects so for now Loomis and Vilppu's books are a great way to go. I can see some studies in here from them, or at least inspired by which look great.
No crits because now its time to churn out those studies! Keep it up

Thanks for the comments and encouragements!
Here is one (still) sketch from movie Donnie Darko. He is supposed to be Patrick Swayze but well.. I have a lot to learn (of anatomy, of skintones, of proportions, of shadows and lights etc. etc.) I will soon post some quicker sketches again (since this took too long to make).

Keep drawing from life, not that studying Loomis isnt important, because it is, but drawing from life consistently will improve your observation skills over times much more than drawing illustrations from books. Apply what you learn from Loomis and Bridgman, Villpuu etc. into your life studies. Keep at at!

Thanks for the tip Sprogis7! Actually I just bought some small sketchbooks today which will fit into my purse so I can carry them with me everywhere I go! It is a shame I live in a so small town where there is hard to find people wondering around the streets (and especially when its like -20 to -30 degrees celsius). Well maybe I just need to start stalking people, buahhahh.
Well here are some sketches from today's figure drawing lessons (unfortunately those classes are only once per month and in summer there are no classes)
Damn I don't get it why do I have to do like so many lines when drawing figure (like in bottom image). Less lines would do..

Hey there Fairytaletroll! Thanks for popping by my sketchbook. Good to see that you're learning to construct your figures. It would be really beneficial for you if you could get your hands on some Vilppu's videos. In my opinion his teachings are the most easy to comprehend and he makes studying construction very interesting and fun.
Anyway... Good to see you working hard to reach your goals. Will be back to see your improvement.

Thanks for you comment Placeboast! I managed to get all the Vilppu's videos and I have now watched couple of them. You are absolutely right, it is really fun and great way to learn!
Here are just some studies from them. I also ordered a real-sized skeleton, and I cannot wait for it to arrive! I think it will be a great help in learning anatomy.
And allthough I haven't posted here every day, I have studied every day now and I'm kind of proud of myself, hehe. I try to keep studying from this day forward too every day. At least a little.
