    You're making good progress.
    A couple of crits:
    Pen can easily look like crap, your getting better with it but try to work a lot lighter with it, take your time, and when you think your line is right, define it (try to apply this to your pencil work as well).
    The other thing is take your time. A professional would consider a sketch to be an hour's work, and a study may take several hours (4+), I'm not saying you need to take an hour, just take your time and try to finish your sketches, otherwise what was the purpose, what did you learn?

    Flip has some really good points, your making great progress Dile, reptition is a must when learning the techniques of drawing, but when your drawing, its good to slow down every now and then to do longer pieces. just something to think about.

    Flip: AND I have both old scanner, and old camera wich make it even worse.
    What i mean is that if you guys here on the forum in anyway
    'wanna' be able to see what I have done I must use hard strokes AND
    then decrease the contrast in the picture, to even see anything, if you
    also happen to have a bit of a dark monitor, you wont see anything
    of what I have done

    I defiently going to think about more quality.
    but I guess its good to do those 40 seconds also
    maybe just add another 40 second to em...It cant kill me
    I can without doubt do sketches for 1 hour, Its just that , that I havent test it yet But, I guess you learnsomething new everyday, what ever you
    do 5 minute sketches or 3 hours sketches.. some new way to use the
    pen, some new way to draw that special stroke, you name it!
    but I guess you learn more by doing studies.

    Whoaaa you're moving along fast! I agree that it would be nice to see some things that have more thought and detail as well as the speed stuff. I really like the right page here, I think it would be good to use some human references like that instead of drawing from your imagination all the time, to get actual human anatomy down.

    Also I know that Photoshop features are fun to play with, but a lot of them are so overused by newbies that they've become extremely cliche, and a good artist shouldn't really need to use them much if at all. If you start putting in lens flares or cloud renders I will have to kill you

    I havent put any Lens flares or Cloud renders in my work,
    I hate those filters, I have ONLY and absolutly ONLY use filters when
    I have done abstract splash screens to 3DS max, I DO ONLY use
    brushes in my work, and/or adjust the images colors and contrast, but
    not with FILTERS. I just think the lensflare effect is annoying.
    I used it ONE time in my work, and thats when I did a car render..
    I dont know if you just warned me from useing em, or if you though I had
    use them, but I havent use em anywere.
    I use some of M@'s brush and some of Coro's brushes, + the standard brushset notthing less, nothing more.

    The profile shot is the most diffucult for me to draw. You, too have many mistakes in that one. I won't go into detail about the shading. The advice here would be to get back to the scetchpad and study some profiles, preferably from other artists. Understand how those work it's the only way for you to get knowledge about them, now that I recon it, you didn't do much face-work at all. So study my friend. Your imagination is treacherous right now.

    It was more of a warning against thing What I've seen you do is some random brush effects in backgrounds and things, which isn't necessarily bad but doesn't do anything for the picture, so its not really necessary.

    Hey Dile, nice update man, good to see you take on the portrait profile. I think its better if you work on the portraits with real mediums first, like pencil and pen. It makes it that much harder to make changes when your painting also. First work on portraits of sketches, do a lot of them, and then if you like any of them from the bunch, scan it in and then paint. This way your getting both your portional exercises and painting. Good to see you worked long and hard on this. Nice sense of shadow around the nose, jaw and temple region. Your really improving with the tablet. But I would say draw your portraits out first before painting them.

    i see you put a lot of effort in what you do, and that definately helps you to improve.Keep on studying anatomy, a LOT (didn't scroll through all the pages, but have you tried loomis studies? it seems too me as if some drawing the anatomy is ok, while in others you don't concentrate enought.REally like some thumbnails enviros in page 3.My suggestion is too start practicing one thing at the time, anatomy, lightning, or persective.And most of all, when you do your studies, try and concetrate on what you're doing (in my experience, as much that means, doing anatomy studies on the bus is useless).Hope you get my point, just trying to help.Keep on working, improvement will keep coming
