First off let me introduce myself.
I'm a design student and sci fi geek from Copenhagen. One of my promises for 2010 was to join this forum to hopefully become better at my drawings.
I try to maintain the rhythm of at least one sketch a day, and two per week fit for presentation. But school is starting again soon and the frequency will probably drop some.
My first uploads will be "the not quite finished but more fit for presentation" ones, but I'll soon start uploading more sketchier sketches too
I am hoping to get some useful feedback on my work and I'll try give some myself!

First is a concept of the inflatable floating living quarters in a post apocalyptic flooded world. (which of course is NEVER gonna happen...hmmm)
Here's the houseboat for the middle class citizen (or maybe for the bounty hunter Boss ) in the flooded post apocalyptic world
The fastest means of transportation in the post-apoc is going fast and going sub. This is the Sub Speeder!
The living quarters for the average John Difool
Where there is water, there is ice. Meet the Arctic Hoover!
"ok, folks! we've got a dying one over here"
Female employee at the Planet Watch & CO. Todays assignment is "EARTH"
(with a huge homage to MOEBIUS' Starwatcher!!)
All from yesterday, most from reference. Advice is VERY welcome!!
Thanks a BUNCH!
That's what you get for being so confident and well proportioned.

looking prety good here so far
Im not shure if you do this but dont use the burn/dodge tool before you know how to paint light and shadows. its a nice tool to save time but dont get used to using it
On to the drawings, try to be a lot lighter on the first lines. and dont draw over the same lines meny times. one clear but slughtly crooked line is bether than a bunch og wrong ones
Fortsett og poste! jeg skal komme tilbake
I actually don't use the dodge and burn thingy at all, but I know now that my light and shadow totally need some work
Also good tip on the strokes!!
I took the advice from DStraX and used a lighter pressure on the early lines, but kept forgetting about it. LOL.
It does work better, I think. It gets more tidy in the end. So thanks again for that tip!
Way too tired to draw. But I did it anyway. Two blurry gunslingers.
(lead holder, "fine")
The subject was "library", so I visited a few with my sketchbook.
I tried to do different styles to meet the assignments.
I needed an avatar for a community that nobody never heard about..fakebook faecesbook..can't remember. I painted it from a Blueberry reference, but gave him a straighter nose to look more like me.
BUT IS THIS LEGAL??
I'm on my first year at The Danish Design School.
2 Watercolors only for the tree studies. Indian ink, pen, brush and the wrong paper for the Nostromo.
John Glenn in 1962 as the first non-russian to orbit.
Yuri Gagarin. Человек. (edited to include newer version of the drawing)

"Hey, let's catch ourselves a stray dog and put it in a rocket and blast it into outer space".
Anyway...ahem. I tore the paper when I removed the masking fluid. Maybe the paper wasn't all dried up, when I applied the masking fluid. Could that be why I tore the paper?
I haven't been fortunate enough to attend the croquis courses at the school yet. But it's totally on top of my to-do list. Courses are again in 6-7 months, so I'm thinking about drawing people in public places somewhere with pen and paper while waiting for the next course to start.
