Sweet update, your pencil work is amazing, can't even imagine how you would go about creating something so good, keep up the good work!
Nice SB you have here bigus
I like your most recent drawing. Especially on the faces. Pencil shading is admittedly something that I am not good at. When I try it, it always either ends up as a dark complexioned person, or an old person.
My only critique would be to work on the folds a bit more, especially on the female character (Her side torso area). The shading isn't as nice as the face. But then again, what do I know? As I said, I can't shade in pencil .
Keep it up mate!

Believe my lies, for I tell the truth about them. Or would you rather me lie about telling the truth?

Cool updates. The guy holding the uzi is ace.
If you looked at the same character from the side, you would see the cylindrical upper legs tilting from the buttocks downward and forward toward the knees.
So if you take that idea, from the back, the cylinders would be pointing away from the buttocks (the knees would be going into the paper). If you draw the upper legs that way (cylinders pointing away slightly) you solve the leg problem.
It's similar with the pelvis in that it will be tilted forward at the front of the figure, and the bottom part of the pelvis will be more toward the back.
I don't know if that will help.
cool update man love that city in the backgraound & the guy with the uzi looks great, the girl nose & mouth seem too close to her eye's but it could just be me. you really love your mawhawks eh just jocking, cool characters
That update is definitely pretty awsome. Anyway I am not sure but I think I noticed a few things with the figure turn arounds. I noticed with the earlier one of the guy that his legs looked a little short which might be in turn shrinking the hands, so you might want to double check the leg length.
On the recent updates of the girl, I think the arms might be a little stiff. The arms usually bend at the elbow when their at rest and you may want to try adding some wrinkles and or lighting to reflect that.
I also think that the back of the hips look a little off, and two things come to mind. For the lighting you could try george bridgmans molding concept to get the curve of the backside to read in a 2d view.
I also noticed that the belt rings look a little off( perhaps on the wirstband of the guy holding the gun as well). When a continuous interval is wrapped around a cylinder the intervals get concentrated at the sides, basically their would only be very few notches in the center and then a lot of notches jammed into a small area on the sides. You can use 2d projection of the divisions of a cylinder to check this.
on a side note you could try using narrowing triangles for the limbs( jack hamms book on figure drawing).
A lot of that stuff is nit picky, but its some stuff to look at anyway.

A short list of my favorite tutorials http://surfandsnow.deviantart.com/journal/22269212/
Some doodles i did while at the South Australian Museum - go see the Aboriginal exhibit. Really awesome stuff!
Quick sketch in the car
Loose, quick studies in class today
More doodles, looking out the window at some shops
Doodles in lecture today
Try to spot the michael jackson...
Posemaniacs and (i think) Hogarth
I set up one of my drawing dolls with a light source from a desk lamp. Worked really well
Those figure studies are done from memory. Really bad. The doodles at the bottom are quick 5 mins ones
I drink coffee in the mornings. So i decided to draw my coffee cup
The far chick on the left and the top dude on the right are reffed from photos
This dudes eye is a little flat.
MICHAEL JACKSON! - trying a little watercolour
heres some sketches i did this weekend... just to show im keeping up with the studies
Did these from reference
Need to practice drawing female bodies. I suppose applying a female face to those bodies would help
EDIT: also, may as well post these studies ive done. working on female anatomy a bit lately.
Some studies from today
Working on this without a reference. Trying to apply what ive learnt in the last week, without the help of a reference image. Trying to test myself i guess.
