Hi, I've been snooping around this site for a while now, and thought it was about time I posted my sketchbook. I would appreciate any feedback, advice, critique, especially any study or reading suggestions.

So far this is what happens when pencil hit paper...
These are all from late 2013 to now. The first few are from a small sketchbook I would sneak into college classes to draw in, the rest are from my regular sketchbook.
Here are a few more studies and fun sketches from this week. I also recently bought Scott Robertson's "how to draw" book, I'll consider posting some of the general design and perspective practice I'm doing this coming week.

If I can give a tip, I would advise you to spend more time in the "construction" of your drawings, this is the step where you should see if all parts of the drawing are well positioned and making sense.
But your drawings are great! All you need is keep practicing!
Well the last week wasn't all that productive, had a lot of stuff get in the way. However, looking through other peoples sketchbooks really seem to get me motivated, so I am going to be hitting it hard again this week.
I've been reading and following along with Scott Robertson's How to Draw book trying to improve drafting and design skills... I have a lot to learn. I also did some anatomy studies by drawing some quick gestures of poses from pixelovely, and trying to drawing the skeletal form over them with out looking at the original photos. The result were... messy... but not bad.
Thanks a lot for the comments everyone, here are a few more sketches. I feel I am trying to cover too much at once, and not learning enough about any one subject. I think I will try to focus on studying just one or two subjects a week to try and commit them to memory before I move on.
Not much to show for the last few weeks, 1 CHOW entry, a few thumbnails, and a sketch I did for some renovation ideas in my room. I have some stuff in the works for different challenges, in addition to some StartUp comp 1.1 studies.
Thanks for stopping by my SB. Scott Robinson did a good video describing the fresnel effect (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_RYAwz9SzZ0) effect when it comes to rendering objects which would be very applicable to your sphere renders. You should check it out! Keep up the good work.
