Wow! Really good stuff here! Very realistic! And I like realistic! Shading, features, expressions: all really great! Keep up the good work (and don't say something like "oh I plan to, why would I stop" cause then that makes me feel like I put something obvious and stupid)!
finally got around updating the sketchbook again. Sorry it took so long.

Preliminary sketch for a painting i plan to do :
I did this drawing of my girlfriend on the airplane. Qiute happy with how it turned out because it was uncomfortable, in a tight chair turning to the right , too bad i couldnt finish it ( close to landing ) :
ahah nice update man, your pencil work is really great.
What i was trying to say is about your faces. Is in some cases (possibly the non ref ones??) you tend to squish the faces a bit.
ie. the distance between the bottom of the lips and the eyebrows comes squashed on the whole size of the head. so it looks like they have a big forhead..
I think its most obvious in you last update- on the picture of the side on view of the girls head -0 with the eyes closed. Here face looks a little squashed. Maybe make them a little longer - compared tofeature sizes and width etc.
Good work though, theres really great stuff here.

Fellah : Thanks again man. it's always joy looking trough your pages
PhatAndy : I understand what your saying but i'm having difficulty seeing what you see. In most of the drawings the foreheads look fine to me the squashing of the faces is clearer to me now. i'll work on that , thanks mate
Here's the finished version of the drawing i posted earlier.
Hope you like :
I don't have to say, it's about time (especially since I haven't updated mine in almost as long....I'm gonna get on it, I swear!)
I love your style... my only crit is on this last finished face. I think it might be there's not enough contrast in the face... but something is throwing me off. Also, his teeth seem completely blown out. Otherwise.... gorgeous updates!
Jens : Thanks dude, the body is indeed a bit sloppy, compared to the hand and head, thanks for pointing that out. I don't go to school anymore. Used to study animation in Brussels. Working as a waiter now.
Very quick self portrait, sucks but its just a sketchbook , right? :
