So yeah, my name's Todd Rad, I'm currently 20 years old, recently moved into the whole visual development major, quite fun. I'll be building up a portfolio thing during the summer so I'm here looking for as much critique as I can and anything you guys have to offer will do great <3..
I'll be updating as fast as I can even though I'm trapped in finals and the release of Brink coming out soon :p
Thanks again in advance for any advice you guys have to offer :)

welcome to CA.
not sure what to critique.
taken as a whole some of the pen sketches and the vampires stand out as quite weak,
but thats compared to some pretty good(and newer i assume) around it.
anyway i look forward to seeing more of your work and to brink
Hey welcome mate! great work so far. I noticed that on some of your pieces the eyes look like they are poping out( on the first one, and the other one same women i guess). So keep an "eye" for that Keep it up!
Thanks mass87, though at some angles human eyeballs will tend to pop out like that, kinda unavoidable as far as I know, I'd have to redraw from a different angle if things like that really do bother people.
And adamsimons thanks, I'll keep the info of those penwork links in mind next time I use the media.
You have very strong grasp on observational drawing, absolutely liking the third portrait, color choices and lighting are quite pleasing also. One thing I'd suggest is to work on is imaginative drawing, with dynamic posing, that will definitely stretch your mind farther
I think you've got a good handle on anatomy and line but i'd love to see you branch out with a bit more expression in your faces and more variety with what you're painting. Everything is looking good though!

So here's a few figure live figure clothed figure studies and a work in progress painting of a cybernetic Don.
A small update on some live figure studies I did recently. Charcoal pencil on newsprint. Marked how much time I had for each one in minutes.
hi lazylion, really nice work in there, a bit unregular but often great, for your pen work, i would suggest you maybe to be a little more synthetic,
and maybe a little less details or hatchs would be nice, i find them a bit overcharged, maybe try to have the same approach than your in digits, anyway keep sharing!

Thanks for the comments guys, I don't really do much ink work, I'll take that into consideration next time I do some though!
Recently just finished this piece.. Some conceptual work for a Bionic Don character I came up with.
I love your portraits, the first one is brutal. Your penwork is hurried and the crosshatching is cluttered. Try to do some linedrawings without crosshatching. Here is an example for neat and clean crosshatching:
Thanks pixel cheetah, I'll get to pen and ink drawings soon enough once I have enough time..
Anyways here are a couple of live figure studies:
