    Ulver, you have some decent studies happening here. They show a LOT of perseverance. Did you ever try working with a larger format? It gives you so much more room to breath if you draw on A2 rather than A4. Also, a buddy of mine, named Rusty on the site (do a search for him if you don't know him) told me once that having a very sharp pencil Always helps his linework. And never underestimate very very light amounts of rendering.

    Good work.

    Caramel E150d - Thank you very much!
    Tea Drinker - Thanks man! Glad you like it
    Dreamworker- Thanks mate!
    Sybo - Thanks a lot for such helpful comment, man! I`ll follow your advise and will try to use A2 format for some full rendered pieces. And I`ll sharp my pencil more often (Sure I know Rusty - his work is very inspiring, as well as Lukias` renders. You New Zealanders rock!
    humanNature6115 - Thank you! I will

    Mostly contour drawings from life in this update, exept first piece.
    It`s from the awesome step-by-step tutorial by serrano. You can find it here: http://locosporelarte.mundoforo.com/...cion-vt83.html

    DECYPL - Thank you!
    windknight - Thank you! Glad you like it Charcoal one? Mmm.. What piece do you mean? Maybe it looks like charcoal, but all of them were done with pencil or gel pen

    I discovered for myself that contour drawings from life are real fun So I post some more. Hope you like it. All from life

    Even with the wobbles in proportion, that kicks ass. The house sketch is the best so far though, I think. You just need to make sure you've got the right shapes down before you commit, I think.

    Keep at it!

    Update: Study of a Dwarf character from reference. I found original picture here:http://paizo.com/paizo/news/v5748eaic9l4f
    It seemed to be a great idea to deal with such detailed pic. Now I see some mistakes, but think I like the result It was a longest drawing I ever did. Took me 12 hours or so

    My brother asked me to draw him an image of a shield with a beer mug.
    I decided to make it with the kind of a celtic ornament. I found a reference of a beer mug somewhere in internet and example of a celtic knot in a "Warhammer online" concept art section. I never made any celtic knots before, so it seemed to be a very difficult construction for me. I searched for tutorials of making a knotwork and find a great place here: http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=402525 and after some training I got an idea of making knots.

    I decided to make it in 3 versions: pencil, ink and watercolor.

    After making of a pencil sketch I scanned it, cleaned it in PS, made the lines lighter and printed the image: 1st time on a usual drawing paper - for inked version and 2nd time on a watercolor paper - for colored version.

    I needed a toned paper for colored version, so I put a watercolor paper in a tea for some hours, then dry and ironed it. The printed lines are not disappeared and I just inked an image again over them. I inked other image the same way.

    Then I rendered a pencil sketch, inked with a gel pen the 2nd image and painted with watercolor the 3rd image. That`s all.
    Here`s the final results and step by step process of making a celtic knot for those who interested (sorry for the quality - I made them with my phone camera). Hope you like it

    Flaskpost - Thanks man! Glad you like it You`re right, I spend on that knot 15-18 hours. May be it sounds strange, but I really liked the process Thank you for stopping by!
    MeTaL-Mike - Thanks mate! I kinda proud of that JM portrait, glad you like it! Thanks for encouragement - more studies are on the way!

    For today - two detailed pieces I`ve done last time.
    The first is a study of a design from Warhammer Online conceptart (yeah, I became a fan of that art - really inspiring images you can find original here:http://www.warhammeronline.com/conce...ptArt_2006.php Learned a Tone from it! I`ve done it on A3 format - it`s my first large drawing! While drawing this I realised that I strongly need a skill of drawing and rendering simple 3d forms, so I made myself a model of a cube and started making 1st study of it. Damn, I have to practice more on hatching!

    It`s an official beginning of serious practice of drawing from life
    So here it is, critique is Strongly Needed!

    looking good! that cube study needs smoother rendering, and brighter values where the light hits, i think.

    Damn, one more thread where I was sure to have post! ><
    Anyway, nice studies, I like the dino sketches.
    Maybe you could pump up the contrast on your pencil studies, use a softer pencil? And the last portrait looks great.

    Looking good sir! Its good that you are looking at what other artists are doing and learning how they are doing it...I think its good practice to take in a variety of things. Work is looking pretty good. In the last Dwarf, his face feels very secondry because it doesnt have very dark values. see you around

    Thanks for checking out my sketchbook! I'm here to return the favor I love the way you draw faces, especially the sketches on pg 10. You have some gorgeous figurative work. My only suggestion would be to practise making a variety of marks. Different surfaces/textures require different handling of your pencil/drawing media, for example, you would use slightly different line quality for bone, which is rigid, especially where it is close to the skin, as opposed to muscle or fat. Explore the possibilities of different subtleties. I definitely think you have great drawing skills, but like my drawing teacher says, "it's time to push things a step further".

    Let's keep working! ;D
