    I must say the rendering is quite beautiful. And the folds in the pants and the hands are great. I myself am a sketch artist(I haven't had much experience with colors.) and hands and cloth are by far the hardest for me.

    Only through fear do we fail.

    while these drawing are very nice and rendered very tightly, i think they could benifit from more "energy". I think you have a great grasp on rendering but i think maybe you should look more into composition and arangement and pose. also the clothing in some spots is clearly fabricated. Also places that should have core shadows from thier main masses are missing them. Also most of the textures are very similar in nature and the contrast bounces way to much within smaller forms. Every area shares the same importance which can be good in technical drawings, but very dangerous in illustration and fine art. As the viewer you have to tell us through your drawing what areas are the most important, guiding us throuugh the most important areas and letting us only gaze at the least important ones. This is a lot of stuff to think about during the drawing process but the end result will be much more rewarding if everything is taken into consideration!! keep up the good work!!

    (cant wait to see the colored ones)

    Impressive attention to detail. thebluepuppy has a lot of good advice in there. I know just how easy it can be to become lost in the meticulous details. Very theraputic. But yeah, an illustration needs more - I'm still coming to grasp that too

    great details, but you could give the figures a clear shading. (lichtquelle)
    like the drawing!

    Using a consistent lightsource can really improve your drawings and help in compisition making. You are a great shader, just choose where and how you shade with more direction.
