The Gandolfini one is excellent (as are the rest of course), but you seem to have got the menace in his left side right but it is missing from the right side.
The top figure study is ok, but the shoulders are way out of place. Far to low down. The muscle from shoulder into neck is at about 10 to 20 degrees, even on a complete meat head.
The other face ones look great, but I feel they are a little flat still. You need to work on the shading a bit to pull the characters out of the page a bit.
The bottom two are well cool. No crits from me there.
sleepyhead- thanks for the crits! yah that first one is really crooked, that was my bad for doing additive drawing and not looking at the drawing as a whole (by this I mean adding features as I went instead of planning it out). I will try to flesh out my portraits more, I have the bad habit of getting scared to add too much value, which would make my faces flatter.....and I also suck at rendering, something I need to work at!
......oh yah and I forgot to post these pics with the rest, time for sleep!
School just started today, which means either more stuff or less. I dunno we'll see how it goes. All I know is I'm so very tired right now, I need to switch up my sleeping pattern real quick. Here's a couple dsgs, a portrait study, and one of the characters I'm developing for an animation project.

love the last portrait, man.
He's got some weird look in his face, which makes him even more interesting (apart from the nice rendering).
Is this from life or photo ref.?
Keep it up, esp. your portrait stuff!
keep 'em coming. good luck with school.
great stuff dude, I like the portrait of the woman laying on the pillow best, my only comment is that the tone around her face is rough and out of place. It looks like you may have switched to a softer pencil. This is only really apparent due to the delicacy of the handling of the face, maybe if it was smudged, or evened out. just a thought.
that anatomy book you're using is a good one.
oh and the first line drawing is prime too.
I like what I see. Your sketchging is going along great. Just try to work more on the color, ok? great stuff though. ....man i'm so surprised at the amount of really great people that just registered on CA these couple of days...your one of them
Da Vinci was a concept artist
11/30/03-11/30/05. Thanks CA, for all the great inspiration. When will I update? I dont know...
nice stuff... the line quality in your photo renderings could use more variation.. they look a bit outliney
i love your work man...especially the sexay women, and the blimp dsg, i love that blimp yours was the best man
hey thanks for all the replies guys!
famboozled-- thanks man! I really wanted to create a sense of movement in the dsg, with the one basket being thrown back from the explosion, and the other pulling back on the balloon from the blast
Jeff- thanks man, its ref from a magazine
empty- thank you too! btw I'm hoping to finish my rush design this weekend
steak- yah I started with a mechanical pencil, and then switched to a 6b pencil, kind of a leap in value there, I see what you mean
obid- wow thanks, sometimes I think I'm a good artist and then I come to this site and get humbled all the time, color is another thing I need to work on similiar to the way I need to work on values
main loop- yah I'm trying to get more shading in, its always a scary thing for me but.........
..........the good news is that I talked to my teacher today about taking independent study since I couldn't attend the time slot of a class I need to graduate this semester. this means I get to decide my own course outline, and I decided to do portraits! which means portraits studies every week and 4-5 large pastel portraits through the semester. here is one of the large pastel portraits I did 2 semesters ago to get an idea of where I want to go with the large portraits, as well as today's dsg (trying out painter!) and a page of some short studies

I am impressed by all you pieces here but i would have to say that the faces at the beginning are my favourites. hey are of such high standard.
some studies, some dsg, a fun doodle, and a finished design
vader-- thanks I'll try to do more

Nice work. I am very impressed with that tonal version of the goddess Athena (I think...). Also liked the balloon war pic. Made me laugh because I've seen those balloons all over the place while I was growing up and it brought back some delusions of grandeur. Keep up the good work.
"As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another. Unfortunately the resulting sparks set fire to any nearby artworks."
jarvis-- thanks I spent like almost 9 strait hours getting those tones chunked out
........yeah so I'm in some sort of drawing slump, I've done several portraits and most of them look like complete garbage. plus I've been sick for like the past week or so and have finally recovered. I need some inspiration, I forgot my motivation. (however I did recently find out I was accepted into VFS for the fall!)
port studies, dsg, an old pic I tooled around with in photoshop, a storyboard for an animation project
btw I am going have to start "trimming the fat" so to speak on this sketchbook once I start to run out of room on photobucket

man talk about a merging of the two things that scare me the most.....the shider or the spark the shark/spider thing, love it but now im never gonna sleep.
your portraits are spankalicious
the story board is a bit hard to follow tho, maybe numbering the panels..?
heh heh, that storyboard's cool. One question though. Why is the peg register at the top of the page? If there's one thing you should take from Disney, it's bottom pegging. Yeah. Nice work btw. I'm feelin' it. Keep it up man! Peace
cinsev-- thanks, the storyboards don't have every single shot transition accounted for, I've added more frames to tighten things up, I guess things move left to right, top to bottom.
phuzion- thank you, um well this is going to be a 3D animation project so the pegging is pretty unimportant. I just got this storyboard sheet from a guy in my group for the frame ratio.
ok small bump, a some port studies using ad markers and such

this work is great, your faces are great, i'm liking the markers too. i think the latest pencil faces are the best, are they from your mind or did you use a ref??
good work though, keep going!
I just love your portraits, especially the last ones. Great markers. How long did those take you?
Nice work, keep it up!

spellshaper- thnkx! um, the larger ones ususually take me between 1-2 hours, smaller ones 20-30 minutes
the swift- all the "studies" are from photo ref.

I'm going to have to cut a few mediocre things out to save space on my server thing. I'm gonnga have to juggle stuff as I add it, probably gonna have to go back and resize some pics aswell......anyways two portrait studies, a fun time doodle pic, and a drawing from my life drawing class
nice line work! good use of tones too. keep'em coming
steak-tron, rubygenesis, and xia-- thanks for the positive feedback! people like tones eh? yeah I've been fooling around with the ad markers and it's a lot easier to shade a face by only using 3 values, than using all 10 values!
*edit* the finished thing, and the thing for a friend

had to cut some stuff, don't anyone be surprised if I suddently get a "photobucket error message for all my pics soon........ (btw anyone know another service that provides direct linking?) um yeah and my teacher wasn't feeling my studies for my independent study class, he wants more of the larger ones like the orange chick. so this means less portrait studies (except for template sheets I guess). anyways here is a portrait study/char development pic and some thumbs
a comic book cover of sorts. I plan on coloring it when I get the time.
