I'm new here.. I was a little shy to post my sketches at first, but I'm making myself do this in the hopes of getting better. Your works never cease to inspire me.
I'm 20, and I just completed a diploma in digital design. Traditional llustration's my passion and I will do all I can to improve!
Here are 3 I worked on today.
Critique would be much appreciated

@Sweron Thank you!
And here's a little update for today! Just scanned this one in.
I've always had a little trouble showing expressions on my characters' faces. I tried to work on that in this sketch.
Here's a location sketch I did, and an attempt to do a colour sketch for it in Photoshop.
Here's a WIP of a digital painting for a project. I will continue to post updates on this one.
Any help would be appreciated. Be mercilessly honest, please?
It would seem that your understanding of color and tone is very good, but your initial construction may need help. I'm not sure exactly what or where you need help, but my advice would be to do drawings based on references and anatomy, at least for your human designs. i would guess for buildings and the like, try to draw famous architecture. basically i'm seeing a lack of realism; not saying you can't draw realistic (you may have just yet to post anything realistic ) but i've yet to see it.
so about your faces and expressions, if you understand how the face works, and the underlying muscles, you can contort the face in anyway, and still have it look realistic and believable by following the under structure. thats why i say you should do some anatomy drawings. i've just begun some loomis books myself, and i'd advise you give them a look, especially since right now andrew loomis' books are free for download.
Fudge this AWESOME place!!!
My SKETCHBOOK: please critique! i can take it!
To limit one's maximum knowledge is to maximize one's limits.
Sanity is wasted on the boring.
@Themegagod, thank you for your advice.
I agree with everything that you've said. I have studied anatomy and practiced doing life drawings, but it's true that I'm not too good at it. I have some of Loomis' books, and saying they have been of great help would be an understatement. I will definitely put some life drawings up sometime soon.
And lol actually that was famous architecture, so I just failed at that. Here's an update. (Still WIP.) *Hoping it's recognizable now.*

Here are 2 drawings with reference from a few months ago:
Almost done.. The scene was intended to be of the London skyline before dawn breaks, with fire on the horizon. (By the criteria.)
I realize the fire looks a little out of place.. I'm going to go work that one out.

A little girl. The legs are a little wonky, I know..
Critique more than welcome.
The last I posted was 4 years ago. I am in a place now where I can post more frequently, so here's what I've been doing recently:
A sketch I did recently for my school work:
At this stage I was, though still focussing on the deformed body, apparently sending the false message that it was about womanhood and sexuality.
I have since made more sketches on the figure as I want to portray it, and I will deeply appreciate any help. I will draw and post new ones as I go along today.
Be Still, You.
