I think what you're doing right now is essential. Your life drawing shows the areas in need of improvement IMO.
For instance, check the size of the hand in her lap versus the size of the face.
I think before your weaknesses had been masked because you would draw stuff you were better at. If you tackle these weaknesses I think you'll be able to bulldoze ahead and finally get past the mistakes that have held you back.
Thanks for the tip P sage, I love life drawing from models but not being in school anymore it's hard to find someone to sit for me. I'll probably have to start forcing her to model for me more often lol.
There's something unnerving about his face I'm trying to figure out... The (our) right eye's outer corner is pulled down where it's not in the left. The bottoms of ears are usually aligned with the bottom on the nose in a level portrait.Lasso that sucker and pull it down a few pixels. The lips are a bit dark for a man.
As for the armor, the design is pretty awesome but it could use some more contrast if it's supposed to be metal. MAKE IT SHINEY.
