Thanks for checking out my sketchbook. Just started drawing again back in May of 2011 after I had quit for 4 years. Didn't think I would pick up it again, but here I am. This was also my first time with digital, as I mainly come from a traditional background (although I didn't get very far). I minored in drawing and painting (majored in Psychology...which was a waste of time) and I didn't work with color for very long.
At this point, I'm teaching myself and using all of the resources I can find over the internet. I do plan to go back to school for art eventually.... at least part time to take some classes, but that won't happen for a while, so my development as an artist may take longer than I would like.
Feedback and criticisms are welcome. Also, I will do my best to offer constructive criticisms to you all as well.
Edit: Original art moved to my next post

You're really doing well, and your shading is lovely. My only issue really is that your figures are a little too stilted. Perhaps if you try squiggling out figures without lifting your pen often? Draw real loose and try to say to yourself that it's just a picture, who cares if it's perfect.
post 1 render is good..but i really couldn't comprehend why all the being do upload all such sketches which did not prove fruitful for them..just do work for them which would possibly show what you got till now..now why should i upload all the heaps of random drawings..why not chosen one which contain all the previous elements of your drawing..
@Telephonescope: Thanks for the critique. I've been trying to work on things like looseness since starting to draw again and keeping my pen on the paper. Very hard habit to break.
@jaywalk: Thank you. I haven't been focusing on one thing as much as I should...with the exception of last week, which I pretty much drew a bunch of legs. I wanted to keep this sketchbook as recent as possible and most of my recent stuff is random doodles. I'm trying to slow down now and just focus on a few things.
Here are 3 photoshop paintings from last month. The Cyborg is my favorite, but not finished. The tree was a study I did, but somehow came out looking really cartoonish. I think that I was just learning about overlay and multiply layers at the time.
This was also my first attempt at a cave...the columns are crooked, but I didn't see it at the time. I will rework this one in the future.
