    cool sketches
    ballpoint is a great medium I use it a lot (esp in school)
    I like your style
    your sideviews of the heads look too short (the brain needs more space)

    and oh I nearly forgot it
    ... I claim FREE BOOBS^^

    A couple of things you are doing consistantly are throwing things off.
    -You're missing a few vertabrea between the rib cage and the pelvis, which is what's making the torsos look squat.
    -You're overemphasizing the crest of the pelvis; it is an important attachment point for muscles of the trunk and leg, but it's totally covered by them. You don't get a visible ridge of bone like you do with a clavical, for instance.
    -All your noses are too long, which is making the jaws and skulls look too small. Remember, hairline to brow = brow to bottom of nose = bottom of nose to chin.
    -In the first piece especially, the shoulder/hip ratio is off, which combined with the small chin makes the figure look disturbingly hermaphroditic.

    I assume these are from reference, not out of your head, right?

    If the former, then good, just follow the advice above. If the latter, then try to use the former. It's the best way to build a mental vocabulary of how things are supposed to work.

    Don't mean to drill you or anything, but I just though up an interesting analogy.

    Would you rather hit a nail stragiht on correctly the first time, and then know how to do it future times, or kinda wing it the first few hits, then try to correct it from there?
    Kinda confusing, but I hope my point is clear.

    Keep it up. One small disadvantage with Ballpoint, is that you can't erase. Try toning your paper(with pencil), then erasing(Try a kneading eraser) for highlights.

    It's alot of fun, and great for value studies.

    thanks for the comments, and yeah, they are just fromo my head. no reference for any of them.

    on a note. it's interesting that the crits i got are about vestiges from an old style that i used to use. some of the things are still done out of habit more than anything and i've been trying to break that lately.

    thanks, much appreciated.
