I've been drawing somewhat on and off for a lot of my life and have decided to dedicate myself a bit more to become better.
Feedback and suggestions on anything I post are very welcome.

It's been almost a year again and almost nothing has been done/changed. A lot of the drawing I do is completely unstructured, whimsical little things and irregular. I have no schedule for study and no plan of action really. I'm hoping to change that. The next submission I add will be a step towards progress and not an "oh, I feel like coloring spheres and drawing random organic shapes"-type thing; hopefully something on which I can get real-life, living, breathing, pulsating, oozing feedback. So, yeah. That's my absence and such in a nutshell.
I had some free time yesterday so I decide to get reacquainted with my pencil since I haven't used it much since purchasing a tablet. Boo.
Drawn from random images found on Google. I'm a bit hesitant to post this but I have to (re)start somewhere I guess, so here goes. Improvement to come hopefully. Feedback is very much appreciated.

Yesterday, I had a moment where I didn't know what to start on so I did this just to draw something—a warmup I guess. I don't know...
Mannequin/stick figures. Probably should have done more. On one of them I attempted to add muscle and such just to see how it would go. Hoping to update more frequently and seriously.
Thanks for the tips, Tim Murphy! I'll be sure to keep them in mind when I try the mannequins again. C:
Today's upload is of MMA fighters' —man and woman—bodies, my socked feet and a greyscale attempt. I'm working to get more organized and not just practice things as they come to me. I'd also like to add more than what I do considering I don't post everyday.... more studies or something.

3d shapes and mannequin gestures. I couldn't help but doodle a little though. Apologies. I enjoyed the shapes, will be doing more.
You are on the right way keep it up and draw more
30 second gestures and ~15 minute gestures/figures. For the sake of criticizing myself, I could have done much more with the 30 sec ones. All of them really... These were tons of fun to do. Will do more. C&C/feedback is welcome as always.
A lot of figures with different times. I used the last page of my sketchbook (~4 years old) today, so I had to go to using copy paper. Improvement to come, hopefully.
30 gestures. I'd like to get to 100 by next week. Faces. Need to work on them...

More 90 second gestures (I probably shouldn't work so large on these so that I'll have time to finish them) and a study of a MMA fighter I did to try to get a little familiar with certain muscles. This was done yesterday before I became ill, so more should be posted today.
Good work man, I can see you are improving
Also well done for keeping up the posting after your little slow start with like 1 year between posts, hehe
I try to do some "smart" and sometimes boring studies, and then I do something random which is pure FUN in between. That way drawing doesn't become a chore to me, but I can improve and keep it fun and not just lose myself in bones and muscles, wondering why.
Thank you, JulieSS! I should probably do more "smart" studies. I'm terrified of doing anything fun/personal because I feel that if I enjoy it too much, I'll somehow ruin it; I'm too much of a perfectionist and it's killing me. Even still, I'll just have to give it a try.
Thanks for stopping by~! C:
It's been seven months. I have very little to show for it to be brutally honest except doodles and half-assed attempts at art. I didn't want to post anything without actually having something to show for my time being absent. It's boo-boo--yes. But I wouldn't feel right just posting "I'm back" or something similar without a(n) (unfinished) drawing (no less) of some sort and a sketch page from February. Hopefully there'll be more to come if I can get over the fear of using the first page of my new sketchbook...
Any comments and insight are very much welcome as always.

Keep up the good work!
I've done it again. I'm not going to offer an explanation because it'll only be an excuse. All I can say is that life got in the way for a year. I'm not going to make promises to upload, we'll just see what happens. Here's... stuff (let me know if it is too large):
Things from my sketchbook. Pen sketches, figures, gestures, randomness. A large dump. I apologize for the image quality.
More from my sketchbook. Quick figures from Infamous: Second Son, things from my head and a head. A lot of the things I do and submit feel to be very unstructured and aimless... I'm trying hard to maintain my drive. I feel that a lot of my procrastination comes from a fear of failure, even though I strongly believe that failure is the first step towards learning and improving. Even with that in mind, it's difficult to place my recent hesitations. Bleh...

Something I've been messing around with using Gimp from imagination. It was mostly for funsies so the perspective may be a bit wonky. I was on the fence about posting it but I feel that in doing so I'm more likely to try to complete it--or at least experiment with it--rather than let it sit and get old on a hard drive. There's more but I have to upload it from another computer, so I will add it later. As always, even though it was for fun, any suggestions or feedback is greatly welcomed. I'm here to improve.
Keep posting dude, I can see you progress !
JohnStapler Thanks, I plan to do just that.
I've noticed that I spend most of my time thinking about drawing and studying and browsing others' art/sketchbooks/skills instead of actually studying in order to add to my own sketchbook. Procrastination kills.
It's not much, but here's some of what I've been up to. I had a bit of fun with the female... studies. I've never really sat and done them in this way before. Also, my faces need work. Both the figures and the heads are from imagination. As always, constructive feedback and suggestions for improvement are greatly appreciated.

There's definitely progress being made, just keep on studying anatomy- maybe do a whole page of hands, as I like to do. : D
I too spend more time than I probably should browsing CA than actually drawing. But stay motivated! I like those last line drawings.
maybelletea Thanks. It'll be interesting to see how far I go if I were to focus on one subject at a time.
dragning I'm glad you like them! It's good to know that I'm not the only one who spends more time than needed here.
Incho, don't despair, I was/am the biggest procrastinator ever. I've had years when I didn't even draw a single thing usually it's months. Last 2 years I've really gotten my ass into gear and found that the biggest motivator is improvement. I have found that I get bored easily so my way to combat that is variety. So I jump from digital to traditional quite often to keep things fresh.
Now I notice that the only work you have here is sketches and loose drawings, that is great for the most part but you need to start working on a few detailed pieces to really challenge yourself, whether it's a study or from imagination.
fireblade: Thank you for the tip. I agree 100%: I need to challenge myself much more than I am and exit my comfort zone for a bit. I draw what I'm used to and that does indeed create stagnation which leads to loss of motivation. Thanks for pointing it out and thanks a ton for stopping by!
Here are some faces that I've been doing over the course of a few weeks. I also tried to paint water. I'm not sure how well I did, but the colors are not original. While saving, the colors became a bit desaturated and I'm not sure of how to show the original colors since saving changes the colors. Ah well.
