doodle that turned into rendering practice for some reason
pretty nice studies with color and value.
maybe do some anatomy, too ? you can get good references from online gesture tools and books from loomis and bridgeman for example
You've got a good sketchbook going. I like those still lives you've been doing and the environments.
I'm no expert on digital, far from it actually, but for what it's worth re the environment studies - I tend to use as big a brush as I can get away with and block the big colour shapes in first, kind of like laying down a mosaic of colour. It works like a map to show where light/form/detail etc goes and makes things much easier. It's just my way of doing it though, and others will probably have different suggestions so it's all about finding the method that works best and fastest for you and running with that.
Also, draw more from life. I think I saw a pencil drawing in #7. That was really good, and if you apply your good observation skills to studies using pencils and paper, it'll really help with everything else - seeing 3d form in photos, from your imagination etc.
Anyway, just some thoughts and suggestions. I hope they help a little. Good luck and keep going!
