    Welcome to CA. Nice sketch you have here. I know you said this one is from high school, but since I have no other pieces to crit on, Ill crit this one, Your rendering is pretty good, but the lines could be a little cleaner. And try to use more values when rendering and shading. Keep it up.

    Hi there, not many comments... so I'll contribute. I like your first work the best, it's the most refined one too IMO. The sketch in #7 is good too, I like the high contrast ink stuff.

    The one in #6 - the hand looks too small to me - very sketletal even in the face but that's perhaps what you were going for.

    In #5 you're having hand issues again, I suggest you try to work on them some more... hands that is.

    Anyways, keep posting, hopefully other people better qualified than me can comment on your works.

    Thanks for your comments! I agree that not many of these are refined... and the reason (logically) is that they are literally from my sketchbooks. My finished works aren't up.

    As for hand issues... yes, I admit I don't spend a lot of time on hands unless I am doing detailed illustrations (and a bad habit of mine...).
