    I think I'll post mainly studies and sketches here and submit most of my finished work on deviantart in the future. Or not. I don't know.
    But here are some stuff from my current deviantart-gallery:

    I think you're doing great, even where your studies aren't quite taken to a finish you get the character of your subject through, which is awesome. You seem to be a bit careful with the color sometimes, going greyer than the reference material, especially on muted colors. Missed some gorgeous blue on those mountains and wonderful lilacs on the water.

    Thanks, Kevin! I'm trying to get rid of my habit of concentrating too much on detailing. Doing these quick studies is really helping me to loosen it up, and it's good to know they still look decent.

    Suncut: You're making some very good points there. I always feel a bit afraid of using strongly saturated colors and my eyes aren't very good at picking those bluish hues. Need more color studies, I guess. Thanks for the constructive criticism!

    Trying to draw some animals by doing constructive drawings (or dynamic sketches or whatever you call them).
    I think I should go even further and really break those forms down to cubes and stuff.

    Wow these last updates were really amazing ! Too much to comment thoroughly but overall really impressive.
    I personally prefer the ones where you draw more quickly and freely with a pen like the Lion and your Aardvark
    Keep it up.

    Spudonkey: Photo studies do the trick! The more time you spend on them, the better you get at catching the detail. And of course it is also important to learn to leave out unnecessary detail.

    Orango: Thanks, mate! Those quick pen drawings are my favorites as well. It's kinda good thing that you can't erase so you get more confident with your lines.

    Thanks for the kind words, lionheart! Yes, I do need a LOT of practice on those enviros, I completely agree with you on that. They are just so intimidating subject to draw/paint and I don't think there's an easy way around it. Studies, studies..

    And here are some older pencil drawings I scanned today (I think these were all drawn from reference):
