The first post shows some good work and observation.
The skull is very strong. It has some character (the cigarette and headphones), good tonal range and energy in the actual strokes.
Look forward to seeing more.

I think your two strongest drawings are the skull and the one of the guy's back. Your understanding of forms is strongest in those two pieces.
I think your focus on faces is already improving how well your heads and faces are coming out. They're more symmetrical and hang together better, which is something I think that comes out when you have a better understanding of what you're drawing.
A suggestion I might offer on faces is to sketch out the simplest shapes and proportions of the face before you start with the details. The painting of the girl with the hat is the best example of a drawing that could've benefited from this. If you look carefully, you can see that one of her eyes is much smaller than the other one. A basic under-drawing does a lot to prevent this kind of thing from happening, although it can still happen of course.
I hope that's the kind of critique you were looking for. I'm inspired by the serious studies you're doing! Keep it up!

thank you, that is the kinda feedback im looking for. i totally agree that the underlying layout is critical. heres teh digitalized version of the sketch posted in the last thread, i still have to add highlighting and everything, its just blocks of color right now, and theres something funny with the pants, i think theyre too low. thanks again.

getting back at it
sorry, the pencils are sorta hard to see properly, im just using a camera and theyre quite light. a scanner might do better. if anyone has any suggestions for how to take clear pictures of light pencil drawings id love to hear it. please crit me hard! its the only time i get feedback, and the reason i post things at all! thank you! -dyl
