A couple of quick pieces from last night and tonight. I'm not sure if they might be considered too polished for posting in a sketchbook however (?), so I can always post them somewhere else if they are.
But for now, the second update!

One anatomy/light study from today, and two experimental sketches (the second one was me discovering the jaime jones brushes - I have a long way to go lol).

Thanks Metal Fingers! I in fact just got a the book you mentioned and will be doing a lot of studies from it in the coming weeks.
Hand drawing exercise from today based on a bunch of Bridgman stuides I also did today (which I will post tomorrow when I have time).

Nice light study of the skeleton.
@Flying Panda: thanks
Two more random sketches. Not sure where I'm really going with either of them - I think tomorrow I will plan out my next portfolio so I actually have some direction. I think I will also write up a short description for each character I do, to help guide the design.

Heyo Gabe! Hard worker with the anatomy studies I can see, that is real good.
I think you should focus more on form and proportions then detailing. You will take it in and learn a lot faster then. I used to detail (still do, silly me) and I didn't get much out of it compared to understanding the form.
Last one is a pretty intresting concept, I like the armour design, pretty fresh.

Lack of updates due to me going into lazy depression mode. But I've got more stuff to show now Also have some studies which I will upload tomorrow morning.
The last three are sketches for the next pieces that I will be doing.
Some great work here already! You're rendering skills seem pretty tight, keep up the studies and I'm sure you'll go far.
Yea I would agree with Wilko. I find some of your work inconsistent though. Some of it is better than others. Sometimes you can create photorealistic work and other times, it looks a little cartoony because of the features but maybe thats intentional. I'm not sure. Def keep up the anatomy studies.
Thanks for the kind words
@Istmin52: I know that my stuff is sometimes inconsistent, but I think that's because I tend to experiment with different styles, and also because I don't practice enough. I'm hoping that in the future I will be able to gain more consistency.
fellow dagger!!! your improvements inspiring man
keep up the hard work hmm lets see should try some more still lifes
have a good one

Wow you are really good at anatomy! and seeing the ton of studies you posted on Deviant Art is really impressive. It makes me also want to study anatomy
Keep up the great work!

Nice going! Keep up the hard work!
Unfortunately not too many studies from August, as I was busy working on my new game, which is called Project SkyFortres at the moment. Our group started a blog for it as well, although I can't really show most of the work right now since it is largely concepts and *gasp* secrets! Here is the link to the blog though: http://sky.section2dev.com/
Anyway, here are some studies and work from the last month.
