Below are some sketches I did around 2012. I did not really have any kind of direction here.

Here are some images I created after I was taking the process a bit more seriously and trying to work in some references. Many of these are from the 10 minute drawing game. At this point I am trying to figure out colors and

Sorry for the doubles I am trying to get used to doing this.
Here are some paintings from reference I did to study working with colors and trying to make things a bit tighter.
Here are some images from imagination after doing more studies.
Here Is a study of a reference. I am not sampling the colors just so I can have some idea of how to get the effects I see.
Here is my take on a classic propaganda poster and a wobbly head man I made.

Thank you for the kind words. I am leaning towards concept art. I guess I am trying to build some fundamental skills at this point and looking for critique and suggestions.
Here is a sketch of a screen for an unannounced html5 game that should be released by me some where around 2035 at this rate.
I made this is black and white and did some quick colors in photoshop.

If you really want to learn the fundamentals, I think its important you start doing more practice's. Anatomy for instance we havent seen a full character yet but if you want to learn the fundamentals, do less of this stuff and do more study like drawings. Pages filled with figures, different head shapes and how it turns, perspective practices. And now and then make a finished piece, your work looks great so if you do a bit more study like drawing I think you will improve fast. Hope this helps you in becoming a better artist!
Ma Sketchbook brings all the girls to the forums, damn right its worse than yours.
Dennis, thanks for the kind words and helpful advice. I agree I need some anatomy work and I plan on watching Scott Robertson's perspective dvd soon to try and start making more complicated scenes and compositions.
Does any one know a good book to get to dive into figure drawing?
Woop woop! Welcome back ^^ lol.
Great improvements! it's a bit hard to see tho, you should scale up the pictures a bit.
About a book. '' figure drawing design and invention michael hampton '' is great! I really recommend that. Or just look up people like Proko on youtube.
"A man chooses. A slave obeys."
Thanks man I am trying to buckle down and get serious and know I have neglected some needed skills. Many of them are small in size because I created them on iscribble.net which is small format to begin with and other's can draw on the board with you. When I upload some new drawings tomorrow I will make sure they are bigger.
Nice I have that book and know about proko so I have no excuses for my figures to be the way they are ;>. I think I am going to try and do 50 poses a day until I feel better about my figures.
Here is a quick frazetta study I did a little bit back.
