    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?

    Well, this is just how I'm developing, you are more than welcome to download the pic and put the light there, if it's possible, just to show me how you would do it. Good that you remind me, will keep it mind. One more pic, atleast, coming today. ^^

    Well, here's a quick overpaint. I made the light brighter for better clarity so it loses bit of the mood, but basically, if the light is strong enough to visibly light and highlight one chest muscle, it generally is strong enough to cast light into the other too, which will also make them look like three dimensional objects. Same goes for the leg, the highest point of the leg muscle is likely the catch some of the light. And for the reflected light on the arms, though my colours are more duller in this one, the light that shines to the red body can be used to cast some reflected red to the arms too, giving them another light source that again, shows more of the form.

    Hey, good start.
    I'd suggest to watch for the background, sometimes it comes forward more then the characters.
    I'd also do some real life studies - lot of them. Figures, potraits, still-lifes - all will do it.

    Keep it up

    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

    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!
