    I'd try to study some perspective, at least as a place to start. The last picture of the robot-thingy has potential, you just need to refine it based on how it would appear in space.

    Good luck, and keep drawing.

    if you smudge using your finger, don't

    your values are good but i think you need to use a little more highlight and a little more true black.

    if you're interested in studying some poses try this site

    www.posemaniacs.com/blog

    good start to a sketchbook. better see more

    One tip i can give you, i learned this from bobby chiu and it helped me alot, is to learn and practise one thing at a time.

    lets say you start drawing, the most common start would be lines and structure. only lines. weeks and months of just lines. practise to draw clean precise lines.

    then, when you can define a structure and a form by lines, move on to values. black and white values. where are the lights where the darks. use black and white images for reference. i think it'S a good idea for a beginner drawing no colors at all, one can struggle with it later.

    because you can have structure without values, but no values without knowing the structure.

    here you don't have to worry about the structure anymore, because you've been practicing it for months right? same thing goes with color. don't be afraid to wait with color, it won't run away.

    keep it up!!

    cu
