I hope I'm not committing a big faux pas by making one of these already, as I just signed up a few hours ago. I'm hoping to use this as a way to keep myself creating new content. I'd love to hear what people think of my work, and I'd especially love any critique or advice anyone can offer. Anyway, here's some of my recent work.
Did this one today.
Did this one the other day after listening to the Gorillaz for a bit too long.
Did this one a few months ago.
Digital still life.
This one is a bit older as well.
Some fanart. Did this over christmas break.
Probably my first figure drawing that took more than 45 mins or so. This was a 3 hour study. Yeah, I'm a noob lol.
Prolly my second or third legit figure study? This was done at The Southern Atelier
Did this for a contest. The prompt was "inside a cave, raining outside."
Did this one recently to try and push my colors. Didn't do to well in that respect, but I liked it overall.
EDIT: Did some more work on the apple; updated the image accordingly. I painted this apple today. I'd really like some crit on it if at all possible. Something's off with it and I'm not sure what. Maybe everything is too saturated and it's causing a sensory overload? I'm not sure. I'd love to hear people's thoughts!

Today's warmup. Need to push those values a bit more.
A great start to your sketchbook! It's great to see you're trying a variety of different things and trying to push yourself, I could do with more variety in my work if I'm honest! While all of your landscape studies are great so far, one thing you could do is along with your studies is work on one and get it more poished or finished, if you understand what I mean by that! I think it'd be good for you to attempt a more finished landscape, but it's great that you've started out by blocking in the main shapes and areas of the landscapes instead of being caught up in details, you're doing it right!
Keep up the good work
Thanks for stopping by my sketchbook! Thanks for the advice! Getting my work more polished up is definitely something I need to work harder on, although seeing other people point it out makes it easier to do, haha. I'll definitely keep that in mind.
so i decided I needed a new way to stay accountable for sketching etc. every day and then i remembered that i had this account lol.
here's more stuff

hey man your's B&W stuff looks good!
Well man I know it may be a style choice... but I would get the great contrast in from black with stuff and put it in the colors too!

Quick one during lunch at my internship
Crit is very much appreciated.
Another one done while taking a lunch break at my internship. It's a value study for a commission.
I like the variation and you're anatomy is really improving! one thing i've noticed though is that you draw most of the faces in the same angle. which you might wanna try to avoid to push yourself more.
You could also consider looking up arial perspective a bit more. You are painting the fog a bit too powerful close up and too weak far away i think.
Thanks for the suggestions! Can you explain what you mean by "looking up arial perspective"?
Oh yeah, I see what you mean. I definitely agree that that needs some work. Thanks!
Done with a trackpad because I forgot my tablet. The neck is a bit of a gore-fest so if anyone can paint over it and correct the anatomy that would be awesome.
Some new sketches from this past week. Any critique is very welcome.
Some recent stuff.
