I just joined today. I'm largely self-taught and draw in whatever spare time I manage to get. There are huge holes in my technique / approach to art. So, hopefully there will be some improvement as I post more stuff here over time!
This being a forum, I'l be posting newer stuff at the end of the thread.

welcome to conceptart.org
cool start for your sketchbook
nothing really to crit, since its 2 goodlooking images, but take care for anatomy, bodyparts like heads and hands allways attract the viewer so you should paint them carefully (the right hand in the last piece for example)
Thank you Xbert I'll take another look at that hand now you've mentioned it. I spent so long trying to get his left arm right that I neglected to re-examine the other hand lol. (I'm still not sure I managed it but I couldn't find a really good reference - I ended up extrapolating between two reference pics). Drawing humans is definitely an area I'm trying to improve in - I'm life drawing once a week at the moment. Hands, faces and feet are always difficult for me so I really do appreciate it when flaws are pointed out to me
Love all three of those pictures you posted. I really can't say anything about the colors since you have a great grasp of that (and I'm totally jealous since I absolutely love those robots), but there's something off with the angle of the head on the second one, I can't really put my finger on it. Like the face is missing some parts, maybe the nose should be visible?
You are right there is something wrong with his head. And other pose issues. I did use a whole host of references for him, but I suspect that one really good one would have been better Its a picture I would like to repaint when I have developed my skills more
