Mhh, i having trouble understanding the structure, maybe if you make the lines that go behind the building more thin and the lines that are in front more broad will make the image more easy to understand, also, try adding some shadows and values, i think that would help, good luck.
Thanks kawakaze, hopefully I can do some more before the deadline.
Christian223, I forgot to mention that the 1st sketch is the floorplan and an elevation that's why it looks confusing & on the 2nd sketch I will follow your advice with the lines as for the value, I need to update it, I just left the shadows of the 3D volumes which shape was flat on top not rounded, so I will work on that.
Hi, i think that you should do very basic value studies, try to do some self portraits and still life as a training, that should make better your drawings of perspective, wich you seem to handle quite well, i would recommend you to do that first, are you studying from some books?.
Christian223, Thanks for stopping by & for your advice, you are right, I have done some value studies but just looking at other value studies or geometric figures, I will try with human forms, so I can really understand how the light works against odd surfaces, not only cubes & spheres.
I'm reading some Andrew Lewis, Design First for 3D artists, Rapid Viz (this one is really helping me sketch faster & get rid of my technical drawing, still haven't finish it).

You seem to have a good understanding of perspective in your drawings. Some of your architectural plans look like they're for a business, are they? My suggestions on photoshop and the wacom tablet: just scan in some of your drawings and start doodling to get the hang of it.
Kuraudo, I have fun with perspective, still have some problems with ellipses, alot of times I create really basic volumes in 3d and pick a shot that I like and from there I continue the sketch (after I saw Barionteri work this way in the magazine ImagineFX), so you have a really good perspective base, yes, some of these images are from projects that I design, some of them are built, some of they are just concepts and some of them have changed before been built. I am going to follow your advice and start doodling on some of the drawings I already created, sounds like a very good idea, thanks alot.
Here is another sketch in progress that I will finish in this sketchbook.
It is called NORTH GATEWAY

Another bunch, sorry to include some of the images that are incomplete or not so good, I just want to show what I have been doing these past months so I can get feedback from the exercises I've done, on what my weaknesses are, what am I doing right, what should I practice, read, do to improve my conceptual designs & art.
Thanks for taking your time to watch & read.

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.
