Long time lurker, first time poster. I'm going to try my best to update this regular. At the moment I'm battling the working life and the art life. Hopefully I will be getting into work with less shifts a week (I'm a truck driver!) and more days to artwork!
So yeah, some traditional stuff to start with and a little few digital sketches, critique very much welcome!

Well before I offer any comments or critiques, let me ask you this: how long have you been drawing? What are your goals with art?
One suggestion I can make without knowing that stuff is to make sure (you may or may not be doing this, but it's good advice either way! ) that when you do studies, especially anatomy studies, don't simply copy the picture in front of you to make it look like the picture, but actually think about what you're drawing and analyze it. I find that drawing something twice after I analyze and spot some mistakes in the first drawing really helps force me to think about the WHY of what I'm drawing. Why did this part look wrong or right? How would I fix it or do I even know? Remember the point of studies is not to make a drawing look like a master's drawing, it's to further understand the why and how of their process in solving a problem like the structure of a limb or whatever it is they've drawn.
Again, not at all saying you aren't keeping that in mind, but I know it's good advice so might as well share it anyway!!
Let's see more stuff, dude!!

Of course, thanks for the advice. In regards to how long have I been drawing, I would say 'whenever possible' for the last 4 years. I don't have the luxury or option of university education for art so anything I know has been largely from art literature and documentaries. As far as a goal goes, I suppose the ultimate aim is to just 'be better' and grow as an artist... Whilst I've had art jobs before I guess in-house industry work would be a nice long term goal.
