I figured I'd return the favor and comment on your sketchbook. I'd love to see how your art has been progressing over the passed month since your last update.
The work you have up seems good. It could use some work though. It would seem that with a bit more time put into each of your pieces they would get much better. I'd say make sure you continue to do your studies. they should help a lot with some of your issues, as they appear to be mostly with your construction.
I'm also going to advise you not to be afraid of adding more tone and value. your pieces seem to be a bit incomplete as you aren't really pushing the darkest darks, to make the highlights pop.
Don't be afraid to add dark. be confident and put down what you see. Your eyes aren't going to lie to you.
as art king above me said,
Fudge this AWESOME place!!!

To limit one's maximum knowledge is to maximize one's limits.
Sanity is wasted on the boring.
I don't how the error at the bottom happen.

Pretty good start here. Definitely keep at it. Watch the "chicken-scratching" line work. It's better to draw confident but incorrect lines than to draw a lot messy lines. Keep doing this over and over again and your linework will become more accurate.
Keep it up!
Bridgman studies and Drawings from the Stl artist guild.
I decided to do a study of one of my favorite Bara Artist.
Some practice inking with a brush.
practice some eyes and noses.
some sketches I did on and way back from work.
Looking good dude. Keep doing studies every day, and draw from life as much as possible! I think at some point you should take a break from drawing people and just draw 3D shapes. If you can manage to perfect drawing cubes and cylinders you should have an easy time breaking down the human form into its component shapes, and after that rotating it into any position you want while maintaining proper proportions.
As far as linework goes, don't worry about that now (some people were saying to smooth out your lines), once you gain confidence drawing people and you draw more and more the "scratchiness" will go away on its own.
