Hey, thanks for commenting in my sketchbook thread(and being the first!), I suppose I should return the favor! so I will give you a critique.
Your unreferenced studies: I suggest paying more attention to proportions, for instance, the coloured woman in your last picture; nude breasts don't normally stick together like that, also her nipples are oddly placed, her rib cage is unusually shaped, her pelvis is to short, and her eyes are uneven, also the coloring is a bit odd on her abs as well.
That's just what jumps out at me at the moment, I hope what I've said is somewhat helpful... Again, thank you for commenting in my SB!

I was about to leave a rather boring comment along the lines of "nice work", but then I discovered your arm studies. You seem to break down the lower arm into two big muscle-groups. do you get that from an anatomy book? I am yet to stumble across this abstraction, and I like it!
as for your sb, please more men and less boobs! (let the hate rain)
I like the traditional look you achieve in some of your paintings, do you use painter? your faces are very nice, if I were you I would spend some time studying the human body in perspective, sometimes your heads look distorted (a problem I encounter as well).
Very nice overall, you an art student or hobbyist? cheers!
thanks so much for the criticism bro!It means a lot.um,those anatomy sketches,I was practicing while I watched a Gnomon dvd of David finch.Im also reading "Atlas of Human Anatomy for the Artist",very nice.(you can find a pdf on the internet)
I used corel on that axe guy.And yeah,I should draw more man(recently started to draw more)the reason why I draw more woman is because I find them very hard,especially the face,but I guess now Im more confortable with drawing them.
and im also a big fan of perpective bodys(anatomy) so I'll defenetly practice that,I just want to have a better idead of how the body looks with out any perspective.
I have a really big problem with the head
I'm an art student,10th grade.
English is not my nativ laguage so sorry if there are any errors.
hey there, you're welcome
ahh David Finch, thanks for that tip!
As Gnomon is quite expensive I am gonna have save a little again, but it's worth it!
Oh well if you draw them for their difficulty, that's great! I find female bodies difficult as well because they are much more subtle in their shape, I don't like it!
Lucky you being an art student :p
"Lucky you being an art student",
Not really,you don't really learn anything...they just say:draw this...use this to draw...
and I have 1 block of 90 minutes 4 days a week(imo,not enough).
I think in college you can learn something.
but I mean the best school is right here,the internet.Sites like Concept art and DA
are flooding with tutorials and nice people who share their knowledge.
