Hey PeterPrime, I've been looking at your sketch book every now and then. You've got some great stuff here and loads of potential imho. I fear the epic skill set you will achieve two years from now. =D
Keep it up cuz Id love to see more!

you are def developing a lighting speed. Great ideas and concepts you have you, really have a lot of potential to do really well.
I had a tough time explaining some of the things which you
could do to improve your paintings so I just made a quick paintover. In your latest paintings the
values are a little off. You use a little too much pure black all over the place and
the foreground just kind of fades into the background, that's why I added a secondary light.
The lighting on the face is completely detached from the rest of your painting. Differentiate between different
materials like leather and metal by adjusting the contrast of high and low lights. Keep bounce light in mind
especially when doing this like metal. I also adjusted the position of the dragon to help the composition and flow of lines.
Be careful not to paint random flying things anywhere because it can distract from the main focus.
Hope this helps
Great studies and colors!
One thing that bugs me are the faces though,
i think you'd gain a lot from studying a bit more about the different planes of the human face (male and female) = how these planes look from certain points, and how they could be lit form different angles.
Keep up the great work!
These are nice, I get a sense of "idgaf" in here lol, which is a good thing. Hope to see more!
