Haha yea, kinda digg Miss Mosh pics yea, didn't think anyone would ever find out. lol. And thanks!
Thank you ! =)
Personally I'd still rather see stuff drawn from real life than faces copied from photos. Go out and draw some gestures from people on the street or your friends or your own face from the mirror, places you have seen and study lighting and use references. Buy little figures and toys and light them different ways and draw those from real life. It just looks like there's two kinds of images with you, ones that look okay but copied, and ones that don't look copied but also look bad as they lack what you have with the other images (form, structure, anatomy, lighting) when you need to learn to use what you get from copying photos and studying real life and use that with your imaginary things. Like the reflected light (which I already mentioned previously), you are obviously aware of it because you have used it in at least two of those other images, but when it's severely needed in your imaginary dudes, there's no trace of it. Why?

Thanks man ! Here is another thingy
hey cool stuff keep posting your pencils look pretty good
Very nice start to your sketchbook Spraix The last post is really really nice. In regards to brightness in your pictures, squinting helps tons with that so you can see how the shadows and highlights are reading without being distracted by detail or the mid-tones. Don't know if that will help
Thanks guys, did this today, while I took a break from work.
Lotza cool images here. I work from photos too sometimes and find it to be a good exercise for reenforcing form and light etc.
The Conan portrait is superb!
trying some new brushes.. soo fun ^^ yummy
this stuff is sooo rad! damn
