I really like your style, especially your poses

Lovely portrait mate!!! i wouldnt draw these hard black outlines around the eyes, or i would reduce their opacity. They close a shape and make it look more flat.
keep up the good work !!!
I really like the last portrait. The eyes are so haunting xD
Keep it up~

Think those environments are really getting better. In some cases the perspective may be harming the image. I doubt you should draw an entire perspective grid and all but I think some indication of vanishing point and a couple of lines early on may help you in the long run. Or keep it in mind while painting.
Love those clothed figures. Lots of variation also in age, style, body shapes.
#626 -Careful with the extreme whites(eyes) and blacks, shifts in value can be much more suble!
Also those faces in #590 are really standing out. Though the ones you did not approve have a slightly scary stare to them, haha.
Surprised you do so many different things! And also; Congratulations to your country. Glad to see you happy with the revolution!
Hai: thanks, your encouragements makes me feel better
Angel Intheuk : thanks , thanks. i'm using a calligraphic simple pen, the one you dip in ink and draw. exactely this model
Kungfoowiz: héhé thanks mate for your effort. it's true i didn't have courage to do inner outlines until i feel more comfortable with exterior ones.
Anthis: thanks for your useful tips. you're right about perspective,sometimes, i'm carelessly drawing. i hope i will correct this, in future exercices. the portrait was an attempt to a false careless painting. of course this kind of style is for higher level of artists :p
and thanks for your congratulations, now i can draw outside without many inconvenience.
here some outside drawing, i didn't post the unfinshed ones.
the are many errors and you're welcome to tear them
Lovely buildings, there are wonky line issues of course but the fact you sat outside and drew from life is a big plus British weather can only let you do that 2 weeks of the year (if we're lucky lol) anyway, keep up the studies, looking good.
Hey, I like it, agreed with the ladies here, the life stuff is fairly awesome! =) If you tryna get rid of that wonkiness you may want to try framing the scene with your hand just for a moment, so you can look at a particular thing and then using your hand you block an area from view and see its angles more objectively, in that particular part.
Erh, hope that makes sense. Keep practicing in any case. Keep having fun too =)
Wow, amazing. really like your improvements through the posts. Great job.
I really like your lines in your life sketches, the strokes are strong, and i can see the confidence in it.
Just my 2 cents, adding more layers to lines can bring the life sketches even more alive, example like when drawing creases on a sleeves, try using different tonal value and different strength on a single curve, it'll build up the layers, after you mastered it, you can even create the same effect with just one single stroke. Just my imo
And i can see some minor issues on painting human skin tone, just some little stuffs, try to keep comparing different areas by tonal values when you're painting the face, like is the shadow under the nose as dark as the shadow under the lips? Are the shadows below the eyebrows are as dark as the shadows below the chin? Keep comparing them with/without a reference (if possible) it helps presenting a more 3D feel to the painting.

Yooo mate awesome portrait with inks up there!!!lovely lines!!!
Ahh so great seeing these building drawings, thats a great thing u are doing, i have to do it sometime.
Keep them up mate!!!sorry for not checking a lot
Wow! Nice updates, man.
That fox-character looks real tight. Good work. How a bout some more stuff like that?
On the street-scape drawings. I love the details. I think I probably would have cropped
the areas where the drawing kind of trails off (for presentation /composition). Either that
or some kind of vignette.
The thing that would probably really set them off would be some simple values. You could
try a little watercolor, or ink wash, or markers, or a big fat graphite stick. Just keep it simple,
Anyways keep it up!

Hi zou sorry mate, I wasn't clear there, yeah I meant your lines not straight and it's affecting the perspective a little, otherwise they are lovely sketches.
The fox character is sharp and I like the colours you've used. the only crit I would have is his left hand looks a bit 'stumpy'.
I hear you with the need for discipline, I'm terrible, I didn't even finish my caricature course in time because it wasn't that important if I made the deadline or not. :/ Your encouragement helps give me a kick up the butt thought, so thanks.
qlotzan: thanks mate, good luck in your studies
kingkostas: thanks you,
BludHund:thanks for your critic man, i excepted more stern ones
i would have cropped the building but when i'm concentrated in one thing, (doing the drawing right) i forget composition :p i hope i will try some washes
Angel Intheuk: thanks again 'stumpy' you mean large or fat ? (sorry english is my third language) hope to see more from your works.
sorry for the absence but school i such a waste of time (even thinking about it makes u waste your time)
i did more outside drawings. it's very funny, you encounter so many strange people: even ones thinking that you're making plans for some evil deeds or stealing the design of their houses or that you're gonna blow their houses to build another one
I like the way you drawing architecture) keep it up!
Yo mate whats up. Lovely buildings and studies as usual!!!In the heads i try to stay true to proportions when changing angles, i think thats the thing we will become used to as we keep up training them. (An erasing and correction on a head you already done cant help see and fix and understand whats happening)
keep up the great work mate !!!
Zouuu!!! =) Love the female figure, she's naaaice =) The buildings they are improving! =) Looks like you are putting in a clear horizon and keeping to vanishing points. For your verticals.. imho, gotta make them straighter and less wonkiness. Keep up the guud work =)
Hi Zou! Nice updates Like the cartoon a lot, very clean. The only crit I have is the ball isn't round, but I don't know if that's intentional or not.
the last few building drawings are lovely, especially where you've painted in the values
