Well i used to draw a lot as a child, it stopped because of other interests.
Now I've started again a time ago.
At the time i just draw, i didn't carry about composition, volume, light etc..IU just draw.
Now I'm trying to understand it and try to improve.
Personally I wonder if i will ever get as most i see here or on other places...
I know practice and doing it is the key , but still...
Anyway, i hope beside practice i will improve with a little help from here (don't we all?) and maybe help others in the future.
Here some old drawings

Inked with Faber Castell pens.
Need to work on inking.
For a start i need to do these on smoother paper, gonna check some ink tutorials
My scanner doesn't do well at the drawing either.
So tips are always welcome!
and another one

one thing I'd recommend is making the eyes on your heads just a tad smaller.
I think if you studied anatomy just a bit more, it'd improve your figures overall as well.
On the bright side, your pen/ink looking work seems executed nicely. The edges seem very crisp so nice job on that.
Doctors heal you, Artists immortalize you.
"Those who can, do. Those who can't, teach" - bullshit.
The usual staples for anatomy:
Thank you, I need a lot of study of everything indeed
I did the big eyes on purpose.
Except the perspective lines and some minor lines I did all immediately in ink.
So it was almost impossible too correct the mistakes?
Why i did it like this?
I wanted to try this style, but not spend too much time... but i actually did lol.( many intensive hours)
Also study perspective and old architecture.
Glastonbury Abbey was my reference.
Some afternoon sketches
When I was drawing I was happy with the result.
After it was scanned and I had another look I was disapointed :/
O well better next time
I hope I improve because I want to draw things i can not yet
Some of the sketches I did during the downtime
With ref, but my version had gain some weight.
15 min with ref
Painted a very old drawing
A studie of a green scene in a great movie
With ref, and I changed a lot after a spontane overpaint by a friendly artist
W.I.P, first attempt paintting in greyscale, with ref
I will probably also color it.
Parrot study, they have such great colors.
+/- 30 min with ref
After a lot of traditional practice back to some digital
