    These are some pretty nice studies. If you want to draw faces and characters from imagination, I'd recommend looking up Andrew Loomis for instruction on learning the structure and anatomy.
    Proko's videos on youtube are also a good place to start

    Hi Kingly- nice start here! Don't be afriad to use photo (or even better, life) references. But- instead of straight copying, also think about the information it gives you. Say you want to draw an elk like creature like you did above. Find photos of elks to figure out proportions, massing, how the joints move and work, thicknesses of fur etc. Maybe look at pictures of similar creatures like deer, antelope etc. to figure out what characteristics make it look NOT like them. Start to make a simplified sketches the same way people do for figure drawing. Now you have a collection of information in your mind about how to draw what you want to.

    Here's a great link on using refrence: http://www.conceptart.org/forums/sho...ence-correctly

    I'm looking forward to seeing more.

    Hey King! Welcome to the CA train! You're starting off good here really. Someone already gave you the advice about the Andrew Loomis book, personally I'm not a fan of his but he has objectively good stuff I guess. The planes of the face references can generally be found anywhere on the internet really. Excited about your upcoming studies!
