Reference is very helpful to getting believable anatomy. If the anatomy is off, anyone can tell even if they are not an artist. My best suggestion is to use reference, like for your latest COW entry...you could have used a piranha or angler fish reference so that you could have achieved a believeable head and then used some animal and/or fish reference for the rest...hope this helps.
The cow entries are cool, but if you are going to take drawing seriously and try to improve, you need to do more figure studies. A lot more, as in everyday if possible. Really concentrating on the basics- anatomy, proportions, perspective, etc...will help you improve in every way. I would suggest putting the cows aside for a few months or so and concentrate on nothing but figure studies. It might get cumbersome but stick to it. Take some classes, get some books, or just draw what's around like you did with your father. That's where you're going to learn the most and the best. Best wishes
nice..Piranha is right..until you master the human figure in is totality, the other studies could be done just for fun..once you can draw a human and paint its skin..everything else is a piece of cake.. ..i recomend you to copy some master drawings..they will teach tons..avoid photographs for now..
I suggest to listen to Piranha Clan and the_allejo05. I said it more then once, first learn the basics..
And more then a couple of sketches, fill a whole sketchbook with anatomy studies..I really dont think you'll improve your skills alot with the way you are trying now.
Just a tip.
Ow and btw, people are trying to give comments. A response would be nice, now it seems like you are ignoring them.
in the mainwhile im watching some dvds on perspective/vehicle design by scot roberston. So afther watching one on hoovercraft design i tried to do some quick vehicle sketches with a marker
they are just to define some shapes so lateron i can draw them bigger/more detailed in perspective
EDIT:a little bigger rework of one of the ships

Liking the eye and mouth studies very much. Defenitly see improvement here, but I would defenitly like to see more anatomy sketches. I know its more fun to draw stuff out of your imagination but you really can grow more on that aspect.
But good start man! Keep it coming I will be looking.
after a period of not much drawing i decided to pick up my pencils again and go for it.
As you can see i still need to practice some more on my anatomy but ill just have to continue drawing if i want to get better at it
