Very nice progression of your sketchbook, I really like your portraits. In some of your pieces I feel you in some of your pieces, more specifically in your environments your using textures to much. Try working on the forms and shapes more before you dive into using textures. I really like this study you posted today, keep working.
from the quick view i took on these..
the best critic i have is that that i notice there is a lack of harmony in some of these..
I find that harmony is a very important aspect of art if the the most important in its core.
If something feel 'out of place' or just wrong then try to fix this.
follow your feelings.. maybe this should be darker.. or this need a little umpf..
be careful and as precise as you can be.. without getting trapped in being slow and scared.. trust your instinct so to speak.. but don't act as a wild animal.
if you feel trapped in the space of the shapes/reality whatnot of the image and you cannot 'fix' what you need to fix then try to step outside...
there are fantastic things learned from drawing a line right across a human face for example.... or drawing dots that feel right.. anything goes..
eventually the idea is that once you build enough skill in handling the language of visuals you will be able to 'talk' with it and say 'human head' in all its glory without breaking reality. (light/shading etc etc).. but to get there you need the words.. and ga ga ba ba are the basic blocks of games and battle..
hope you get what i mean
this last head for example would be much better if you crop only a bit more then the upper half.. the bottom half feels detached to me.. i think its the sharp yellow to pink border there....
so in that case adding some yellow to the bottom to make it transfer to pink more smoothly would help allot.. try it out.. experiment.. and follow your gut..
Hey you have a lovely place here! I really like the playfulness and imagination in your paintings. Although I agree, you could do more with less noise in them. But I think you will develop some pretty badass skills pretty soon if you keep up this pace and attitude!
Really cool sketchbook so far!
I love the loose and abstract feeling you've got going on. It really lets the mind wander.
Great job on the self portraits, though I think they definitely need a little more work on them.
Keep up the posting
They look so good that's why I keep 'em in the front

Lots of improvement going on here, good stuff mate. Be careful to keep the structure of the head intact though, on a few the perspective of the feature's doesn't quite work. Also some of your brushwork could do with slimming down, less scratchy and more simple/effective like in the one of the girl in traditional dress - that's a really nice piece!
I have looked over your work. Your style is amazingly good, you have mastered tone on the image above so well its great as you feel the character come to life. If only I were that good haha. Please keep at it your works an insperation.
