I noticed you're quite new so I hopped on by to say hello! I look forward to more posts from you since you seem to have your head in the right place (Frank Frazetta, fuck yeah!! I should do some master studies from him). Keep up with your studies and always fill your head with beautiful and awe-inspiring artwork. The concept art world is tough competition (not speaking from experience, of course) so push as hard as you possibly can to become a great artist. If you get discouraged, keep your head up and come look at the work of people here who started without knowing a thing about art. Celebrate small accomplishments to keep yourself motivated and take your journey as an artist one step at a time.
Cheeeeers!! Keep posting!

finished value study of that one guy, when i finished i noticed i messed up a bit on proportions because his nose should be a bit longer and his orbicularis oris should be a bit smaller

Value studies are pretty helpful.
With the last -- aye, the proportions are off. The eyes seem a bit small, too. When you get the sketch down check, double check, triple check that the proportions and foundations are right before you continue, it's a lot easier to fix it in those early stages than later on. With digital art it's especially easy to fix things.
I love the area around the eyes, forehead, etc. I think it would help you to use harder brushes at parts, but you really nailed the character of the reference, especially in that area.
I also recommend doing some gestures to help loosen up your poses and characters.
Good job, keep practicing!

Remember not to just do the drawings in the anatomy books. Really read and understand it. The point is to get the idea of what everything looks like and why. Then you can apply it to your drawings. If you just do some sketches you see in the book you don't grasp it and tack it on without knowing why and it won't fit. You don't need to know this is the deltoid muscle or blah blah blah, just what it does to the human form.
I'd be more sparing with digital when first starting to study. Digital is a tool with a lot of shortcuts so people tend to ignore the basics when you can just skip over aspects. Most professionals when using digital I notice barely even use a lot of the tools they just do what they would in real life painting. For digital right now I'd focus on 2 things. Line drawings for your studying and maybe value (black and white)
This is a good tutorial for some info. Basically you want to avoid things like smudge tool or a bunch of low opacity small brush strokes. Get your values down first. But this is a later step. First thing is just drawing what you see and doing figure studies. The more the better.
This is also a good site for all sorts of info.

Hello! With this last image, he's leaning a bit far back. I know for me, sometimes all it takes to keep my character standing straight is to use a light vertical line to use as a guide. I really enjoy the drawing with the dog, and how you used the texture of the paper in an effective way. Is it your dog?

thx GoGoJojo it was of a friends dog and just a very quick sketch to tell the truth, and for the last guy ya i noticed something was a bit off , thx for the advice
