    Oi

    I would say to work on proportions of people. The relative size of the parts of the body. The forearms look over extened on the lady and the crouching guy and they dont look like they are bending naturally on the lady as well. Food for thought go and sketch more

    Here's a more serious addition to the sketch book. After a life drawing class today my eyes were really opened up to how much i had a head of me so i took it on myself to try some independant study using refrences and such to do a proportional/bone/muscle study hope ya like.

    I wouldn't say that this is too realistic, but it works in a stylized way. The eyes set wide apart and the long neck give this portrait a unique feel. Keep working on those anatomy studies.

    Perhaps you could use some light construction lines to establish the features in your drawings. I.e., in the portrait the eyes aren't aligned, probably drawing an horizontal line where they're supposed to be placed will help you. Ah, and don't forget to use a mirror (or flip the image in PS if you scan it) to see the flaws in the construction, it's a really helpful (and ancient) trick.
    Keep drawing, you're doing great

    thx for the tips fedezz, i try to remember to turn the page around and hold it up to the light so i can see it backwards, i really need to do it more. I'll try to work on the lightness of my lines for the guidelines for proportions. I'm going to try to take some pictures of my lifedrawing that i did.
