Maybe having one of these will motivate me to sketch more often! Which is something I need to do. Yes.
I've been trying to do more life studies lately, so I'm sure some of them will end up floating around in here. (These are obviously not them. *cough*) As you can probably see already, I have massive anatomy issues.
Just some recent-but-not-brand-new stuff to get started, these are all done in ballpoint pen. Critiques and tips are more than welcome:

this stuff kicks ass, can't wait to see more
Madplanet, I'm definitely going to try to sit down and do some figure work soon, I'll post it up here when I do. Human anatomy is definitely my weak point, so I'm hoping for some feedback on it when I get some stuff up. Everything I have right now is so out of date that I'm not sure critique on it would help me since I haven't really had time to sit down and do serious figures in quite a while. : )
A few quick figure studies and some hand doodles, playing around with fists (obviously).
You have some cool critters- though I agree anatomy needs work,
some issues with proportion and skeletal structure.
These studies are a nice start
but you need a foundation and that starts with the bones and muscles!
Also check out the Loomis books (you'll find PDF files online, just google it) and I can recommend a few more if you need a start.
Hey there; love the pieces you've got here. Amazing line work and shading as well... my favorites would probably be the creatures you have drawn there; they look so cool hehe keep up the good work!
whoa stepped away from my computer for a little and didn't catch your update! great anatomy stuff, the way you render is quite nice. again keep up the great work!

Thanks again, guys. I'll take a look and see if I can find those PDFs, sounds useful.
Ugh, a little busy today, but I managed to do some doodling.

*Referenced from the manga Hajime no Ippo, because, well, I didn't have access to any other reference at the time, so it worked. : P
Sketch and quick (~15 min) color study for my potential COW entry.
Quick color study, referenced from a photo.
the top two are really your strongest thus far. in terms of design, texture, and overlapping forms.
keep posting, look forward to more

Great stuff, I really like the value in the first one. It's good you're trying to draw figures in the round. A good exercise is to draw the figure (hand or whatever) and then try to draw the figure from another perspective in the room with the model in the same pose. This will help you memorize the forms of the figure. I tend to finish my figure drawings in class early so I'll do this for ten to twenty minutes. haha, my teacher usually asks suspiciously what I'm doing. Keep posting. Feed me more Seymour =).
SprayNation, thanks for the tip. Unfortunately I don't often have the chance to work with a live model (not in school anymore and most of my friends aren't patient enough to pose for me : P) but I'll keep it in mind if I ever get the chance again.
Anyway, massive headache and copy center work kept me from doing much today, but I promised myself I was gonna try to post in here daily, so here's some random crap I managed to spew out before work.
I think I'm getting better at torsos, at least.. : P
Still focusing on torsos, with some muscles tossed in for good measure.
I had a bizarre urge to draw shells for some reason this morning, so there you have it. Random shells.
Just had a chance to browse thru your SB and I must say excellent studies of anatomy. The shells in the last post are awesome. Keep posting.

Bleh, tired today. I don't know what it is with me and sea creatures lately.
the shells and sea creatures are great.. really nice SB.
Tried to do a few facial studies today with varying degrees of success.
Long day. Just some quick doodles I did at work.
Been a while, oops. :|
Just some quick character work.
Thanks for the comments, guys, I appreciate it.
Mmmm, just a quick mockup comic page today for a project I'm tossing around in my head. Not that I don't already have way too much to do..
