Per their suggestions here's some other work from a different approach. PLEASE, any advice on directions to head, books, teachers, dvds, practice regimin, technique is most welcome! I'm not in art school, and don't really have any teachers or mentors so this is a wonderful opportunity Thanks so much.

Finally, a few sketchbook pages with various approaches I try to use.
Thanks for taking the time to look. Please let me know what you think.
But these are good. I like the second image the most. Cool poses. good stuff. The uh, last drawing which is sorta colored... that one I'd omit. The pixel noise aside, his face kinda goes from yellow to red to blue but never to a color resembling flesh. Also, the hair looks as no hair ever has.
I also think you captured weight nice in some of your sketchs.
Yes, very ugly,that last one looks just like you said. I was trying to get as far out as I could with the few colored pencils I had handy. The only thing I tried to keep was the drawing and the values, especially the values. Really, it's only an experiment albeit a rather agitating one. I kinda like the old man though,
anyway, thanks for the input, I really appreciate you looking and responding.
