Sure man, you're more than welcome.
I think your head is in good condition.
No need for repairs.
Study more anatomy, so you know what you are doing. The more anatomy behaviour you add to your brain the more freely you will be able to express your ideas. There is *never* enough anatomy practice. Study the muslces and structure both from observation (life) and books. Books alone are nice, but very dry.
As for technique, I think right now you are at a phase where you are still afraid to go in with rendering and possibly mess things up. That's okay.
You may want to try and build up your masses more, more simple shapes, in prespective. Visualizing the masses would be the first step, and rendering them would be a natural second.
Keep posting, and keep drawing.

No sleep - More draw!

I'll keep drawing. Can't help myself. Thanks for the advice Eyal, i've never really studied anatomy intentionally
I'll have to invest in a good anatomy book. Looking for something more naturalistic, from corpses would be good! Don't want any of that cliche super-cartoon post stuff, if it can be avoided; got any suggestions?

Got a few things to add, then i'm gonna go back and get rid of thumbs, make them real images even!
These are some sketches I did for a friend who's making a D&D campaign setting (yes were supreme dorks)
(this one's got an awesome pneumatic spear arm & shield arm!)

Hey, thanks for your comment in my sketchbook. I've actually checked yours a couple times but forgot to leave a comment.
I like the last two robots, especially that spear-arm. Very deadly. They've got really cool head shapes.
I think, even though these are sketches, parts of them are a little too sketchy. Try to be a bit more confident in your lines. None of the pictures in the first post really suffer from this, but some of the more recent ones do.
And yeah, you know the whole anatomy spiel, yadda yadda yadda.

Yep. Thanks 0Kelvin, earlier ones were a little more rendered, didn't spend any time on recent sketches, I guess that accounts for the over-sketchiness. & yea, anatomy x1million, got alot to learn. I'll keep drawing and posting. btw, i'm about to graduate highschool! One more danm month of exams, and then i'm done & off to art college! Drawing classes, life drawing, ect. Hopefully i'll get some awesome professors to bash my teeth in!
