Well I'm checking my self in here since I have only posted a few times and I am also beginning my illustration career. Just read some of the sticky thread in the finished section so just to not over estimate my drawing skills I will start off here with finished work, and sketches that I have done. C+C is more than welcomed.
Ok thanks for the crit on the inking. I will see if I can take your advice and put it to use. Here is the next pencil to be inked. I get extremely nervous doing this because I've never learned how to ink. I'm currently using drafting pens and my watercolor sable brushes. I will post the inked version once it's done.
the poses you use look very rigid. i think you may already know this as from what i can see here you compensate for that by not bothering to draw full bodies. also start thinking about where the light is coming from.. it seems to be coming from all over the place, but mainly from directly above in your pictures at the moment.. but then you have bright white places right next to darkest spots on the picture on the same surface facing the same direction (the left soldiers right arm for example) it makes no sense to me..
Thanks for the C&C I will see what I can do for the rigidness of the posses and the lighting. I know that they are things that I have to work on. I may see if I have the time edit some of the finished ink with photoshop or painter. The one that's not finished I will rework to see if I can do it better. the lighting thing is that I'm portraying day ambient lighting. Not really succeeding at the moment but lets see what I can do.
Here is one I just did for a bootcamp over on RPG dot net. It's for creating miniatures for a WWII Horror line.

"Oh, God, I’m still alive. I thought they would never stop. Dear God, I can’t move! They paralyzed me with those bamboo canes! No…wait…oh thank God, I can move, just stiff, and it hurts! It hurts so damn bad. My hands are shaking…they left the splinters under my nails this time. Why is it so quiet? How long have I been out? Wait…is there anyone else here? God, I can’t see very well…what did they do to my eyes? I’m not in my cage; I don’t think…here are some bars. Hello? Johnson? Did...did they liberate the camp and leave me here alone?
There you are! I thought I was alone! Johnson? What are you doing? It’s me, Polanski! Don’t look at me like that! Stop…don’t yell, they’ll come back! I mean it, Johnson, shut your damn mouth! Look what you made me do! Now you’re bleeding from these damn splinters…shut up! Shut UP! SHUT UP! There! Geeze. Wait…where did you go? Hello? Am…I…where is everyone?"
