As for adding photos, I'd recommend using the Manage Attachments link at the bottom of your Post Reply window. That way your uploaded images won't become dead links as they will be hosted here on CA.org. Just get all your images ready, and add them as attachments to one post and you'll be all set!
Good, smooth rendering there, but remember that there aren't any really definite lines in anything we see, just the shift from one value or texture to another!
Cheers man, I uploaded as attachments thıs time. The images are mostly quick sketches and studies.

A quick doodle, which i decided im going to continue into a proper piece. I'll post more as the picture progresses for you guys.
its a case of drawing as much as possible and practisincg you anatomy work
also - get some paint and colour onto this - just put colour to paper and try not to think so hard about whats happening with the picture keep posting too!
Welcome to CA.Nice start with your sketchbook.You have to keep working with anatomy studies and to understand the human body so you can make proper characters.(also do life drawing will help you improving your skills).Try to find from what basic shapes the human body is created and understand how these parts react the one with the other.
Ill check again to see updates
I can't agree more with Toffeeliz and kingkostas. Some color -and anatomystudies would be great here! You'll notice after a while that your no that limited anymore in your images. I have to say... great start!! Keep it up!!
Cheers guys for the helpful comments. I've been drawing for many years, but lately I have been trying to push my self into more of a proffesional level.
I'm an animation student at the moment so I have been juggling concept art and animating for 2 years now and trying to equally learn for both arts.
Toffeeliz - You got it pretty much spot on, I always think really hard about how the picture is going to end up, lately I've been trying to losen up in my drawing. Im going to practice some more abstract based stuff with colours alone, along with more anotomical studies of course, hopefully that will help.

Thanks Its a segment from a larger piece, I'll post it when its complete.
Another quick character doodle,...... Nınja turtles/michael Jordan I guess.
Sorry about the lighting, i know its totally F'ed.
Thanks dude, one of the most annoying things for me at the moment is to make the characters look more relaxed and natural, that and lighting are my main problems.
Turkish inspired quick piece, I might detail it in, had quite alot of people wanting so, no idea why.
Thanks dude, jus messing around doodling here and there, learnin I guess. Im going to try posting some more detailed colour pieces now.
a quick apple study, thought I'll add it as alot of people do.
nice figure studies, just keep on those and draw from life as much as possible, get a good anatomy book(peck maybe). your painting style reminds me of my own, very energetic, but a bit loose and spotty at times, just try to tighten up some areas and create larger areas of light maybe near the focal point, just keep drawing.
