You're still young, so being harsh is really not needed here. Especially since the pictures do vary in quality so one just assumes over time the better drawings will be constant. If you draw everyday it'll be ironed out Your good drawings are really good too.
Your photo ref drawings are generally good, except for the Spartans from 300 Check out some muscle photos or anatomy books for that and see how they relate. This is being nitpickey. I like the feel, and some drawings have lotsa life in them, and your faces are quite good.
I have a soft spot for hair/glam rock. So I approve of your Slash drawings
my sketches, and rants.

you're doing well man...and as the others have said the important thing is to keep pushing, keep drawing as much as you come, improvement comes with practice...so keep at it.And get those anatomy books out as soon as you can, they will make your improvement even faster
You have some great progress in your sketchbook. Keep on drawing away!
In case you're interested, this is where I found some Loomis books:
Keep goin'; this last elephant picture shows improvement!
Look, see! Nifty art! http://www.conceptart.org/forums/showthread.php?t=99803
Hey! Check out my blog here
It seems like you have a knack for life drawing, which is definitely a good thing.
If you're only 16 now, with lots of practice and as long as you dont stop drawing, you will definitely refine your talents and improve significantly within the next few years. Don't stop drawing!
That elephant is killer man, but you need to work on showing your forms with shadow, rather than line, you are struggling with how to get the figures across, and thats because you are resorting to line over shadow too much...
That being said they do look nice and I like the energy that come out of your pieces keep it up mate
oh and I finally updated my SB so stop by some time I would love to hear what you think
ha - you say you need help but from what you're posting, you're doing JUST FINE. All you really need is practice. just draw more. Post a lot of drawing from life and let yourself get loose - the less you think about it, the more confident and relaxed it'll turn out. (which isn't to say you shouldn't consider everything you've learned while drawing)
although, to be honest, I like a lot of the stuff on your first page better. You've become a little less confident in your lines - and the sketchy chickenscratch doesn't work for ink. while it looks cool for pencil and some other medium, ink is just too bold and too dark to make it work. Simple lines. think about where they go, then put 'em down and then DON'T TOUCH THEM.
I like I like I like...just keep more coming, you're getting a definite improvement since the first post. It's really wild to see that much improvement that fast. I'm really digging the shading in post #40 and beyond, very nice! I agree with the others (because it's the same crit I get too) you got the idea of the figure right, just tweak the anatomy a little and use shading strokes instead of strong lines for the muscles to get the more realistic look. But you're well on your way!
LIVE FREE. DRAW HARD.
Hey man, thanks for stopping by my sb. you got potential, stay focused on anatomy studies. Like... Do a lot! practice practice practice. Thats all I did for a year straight basically when i was learning(I still am learning). But yea, just really focus and bust your ass and you'll be there before you know it! You'll be drawing all the things you wish you could and you'll be happy!
I'll be checking back, stay motivated, you got it maaaaaan?

i really appreciate what all of you said!! thank you for the crits!!
these advices are very important. i'll study anatomy as much as i'll can, in way to improve my skill and maybe become a good artist one day, but i'm a bit limitated by the school i attend, a scientific school, so i'll do what i can.. i really want to get better!
and maybe begin to use photoshop...with help.XD
thx for the comment starbonescoffin
i'v relaxed for few days, between a Latin trad and another, so i haven't done very much.only few things without ref.

oh sorry, i will
I've got some tips m8, and I'll start with one that's only 2 words: Study anatomy.
Don't "pet" your lines, they tend to get a "hairy" effect when you do, when sketching, do big and loose strokes (I'm struggling with this myself)
Also, when inking, line thickness is very important. Instead of 100's of lines making up a picture in ink, you should only be using about 25 WELLplaced strokes with warying thickness, thin where it's light, thick where it's dark.
Other then that, simply just draw, draw, draw, draw!! (and keep posting)
Oh btw, I noticed your chest is very high on some of the pictures, remember that the chest has the length of "one head." Did this a while ago
This is an average Joe, simply put a very average man. 7 head-lengths, notice where the boxes "cut" the figure. There's also the more heroic 8 heads long or even 9 heads long. All depending on the character that you want to do. (Google is your friend, just search for "human anatomy")
Keep posting! I'll keep an eye on you
