Thanks for the comments! IMO you should try digi-painting from reference. First for proportions (if human), but more importantly value, then for color- in my opinion, pencil is much better for things like anatomy.
Take a picture you like, good composition, good subject... Then desaturate it, zoom out, and make flat values of what you see. This helps increase your ability to use value in terms of composition- it's very important- you might also do this with Masterpieces. Composition is a very, VERY important thing. Do the same with color- but do it with just b/w first so you get a better grasp on it.
Also, do material studies in Digi or pencil; Paint or draw some water, some glass, some shiny steel, some dull steel, some rusty steel, some cement- They all reflect differently, and displaying these differences makes your pieces much more competent.
Good luck man!

hey there. you've got a pretty nice sb started here. the figure studies are great and you paintings are on there way. pick up a good color theory book, that will help out a ton with the paints. also i agree with spray nation about the figures looking stuff, i have that same problem. i got a burne hogarth book and it helped a little bit but like nation said, gestures are the best way to go. keep at it bro! good work so far

Hey man! Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook so often. I was checkin on like the 3rd/4th pages for gems and decided to stop here for ya.
One thing I think you seemto be having trouble with is form. Try drawing your hand in planes, really thinkTHINK THINKTHINK hard THINK HARD LOOK AND SEE YOUR HAND, fully, completey as a 3d object. Use your human intuition and memorize your hand... Then draw it as if it were a 3d model.. draw a wire frame of it. An excersize like this helps you to think in masses, which is one of the most effective ways to think of and execute the drawing of the figure. All the old masters used it to their advantage (see the book "MasterClass in Figure Drawing" by Robert Beverly Hale. Great book- Boring on the first read for some, but once you get into it and realize some of what he talks about, it's Juicy!!)
I used one of my more recent sketches as an example for you (of thinking in "planes".)
Hope I could help enlighten you some.
When you get into massing, you will start to be able to "abstract" things so you can remember them easier. It really helps to abstract the figures when people are moving rapidly, such as here;
Notice how abstract some are.. they are single line shapes, you just gotta kinda blur your eyes, and think of it in 2d shapes, and eventually those 2d shapes reflect 3d properties.

Bro, great progress work you got here... i specially love your octupus! I really like your anatomy studies as well, and at a rate of a page per day, I'm pretty sure you'll be good in no time. Thanks for passing by my SB bro, I'd love to get harsher crits, so don't worry on sending harsh crits or anything. i'm as tough as iron!
