    Hey! That is a good beginning! Keep it up!
    One thing that i notice is that the human poses are quite stiff.. You could try to play with the weight and the angle of the spine and shoulders next time

    Whoa, looks like we got the start of a good one here. Good to see that you're mixing studies with imaginative pieces, something I wish I'd do more of myself. Keep up the good work.

    Tons of figure sketches. Goooood. Keep on doing that (and maybe some environments and object studies too) and everything else will follow.

    Keep at it!

    Nice work so far.

    Seems like your strength is in tones, mostly notable in your paintings. Maybe try drawing faces in blocks of tone, like you do with the environments. Try a few times without relying on line, you might just surprise yourself.

    Keep up the goodies!

    Hi matey

    Thanks for stopping by my SB I really appreciate it mate thanks. As to your work so far, its looking ok and there are errors here and there but just keep going and use more reference, and like Strato said in my SB take your time and observe more, some of the portraits seem to be a bit rushed.

    Otherwise keep grinding those skills and challenging yourself, all the very best mate I will stop in again from time to time and see how its going ( we can compare notes lol!).

    Hi, thanks for the encouragement!
    Your latest character designs are really promising.

    You are spreading you're studies out well, including drapery.
    I dont know if you've heard of burne hogarths dynamic wrinkles and drapery, its a pretty solid book thats well explained on how kinetic forces affect clothing.
    a link to the free pdf if you're interested in improving drapes.

    Really nice gestures and life drawings.
    The environment studies are looking great !
    One small suggestion is to add some hard edges to the point of interest in your digital paintings.
    Keep up the good work!
