Another sketch, still have to work on it.
This one I really like the concept, and I definitely want to finish it like a piece of art, it will take me alot of practice and learning but I think it will be worth it.
It's called "Hanging Cliff Waterfall".
Please give me your input.

great variation. i think w many of your pencil work you may want to vary the leads u use. a lot of detail seems to get lost w those soft leads. i think your compositions are really good id just like to see more detail in them. i really like the high contrast black/white thumbnails u have. u should experiment more with your mid ranges though. anyway good to see u all over the board. keep it up.
kawakaze, I was using for most of the sketches 8B lead, I switched to 3B because I felt they were too dirty, and you are right but I never noticed, some of the sketches here were done with 2H and I really liked all the detail I could have with it (I stopped because it took me a long time drawing), now you open my eyes, I should combine them, maybe start the overall with quick wide strokes(2B) and then detail it with HB & 2H. Thanks for your kind words about my compositions, I will try to add more detail, although I have been trying to learn how to draw faster, but now I am comfortable with trying to add more detail, and definetily I am going to start playing with tones, I think I am going to practice with some figure drawing from Loomis, everybody seems to agree that the best way to learn to draw and to understand tones, volumes & lighting is by drawing the figure, I am going to give it a try.
Thanks alot for stopping by and your advice.
-Third sketch was the first one with some changes and it was my first attempt to use my Wacom tablet, and, yes, I am not proud of the Ford Explorer parked on the sketch, I shall fix it when I can draw better with the Wacom.

mentler, thanks alot for the 5 bones, I'm honored, specially after seen the great work most people awarded with 5 bones from you, I don't think I deserve them yet, but I will deserve them for sure in the future. Thanks again.
Here are some sketches I did yesterday, trying to understand values from the human figure (loomis & other books), and another environment sketch just for fun, will work on it alot more.
Thanks for watching.

Another concept, I finished it with prismacolr & markers, the perspective of the building is off in relation with the perspective of the site, I will try to fix it in the future.
Same concept finished with the wacom in Peinter using the burn tool, reducing the burning intensity so it would paint and not burn, I didn't know how to use Photoshop back then (less then now), neither painter, that's why I did it with this ackward painting method, but now that I think about it it doesn't look bad, maybe I'll try mixing that method later on, also, the shadow on the right side of the van is wrong, that's a side that should be illuminated.
Updated sketch for EOW#47 "Rapunzel Tower", I updated it and adapted it more to the original story from the Brother's Grimm, one tower, woods, no doors, only one window, the princess hair, the prince and also i painted it, I'm starting to really enjoy using the Wacom.
You're really belting out those perspective drawing liketheres no 2mrrw!, and improving massively to boot, keep going and you'll strike prime oil skill wise!
Why do u stick your nose in other families business'. Come on dude don't u have any HOBBIES?
My sketchbook beckons, ave a look see?
Thanks alot for your comments, I will keep practicing and learning as much as possible and hopefully soon I can strike prime oil skill.
Here is another small sketch, the perspective is a little bit off, I'll fix it later.
