It depends on where you're trying to go somewhat, i.e. what style do you aspire to? From what you have here, I would focus a bit on light and shadow and how hatching accentuates that. It looks like you're using a lot of hatching to indicate planes of forms, but not necessarily considering if they are lit or in shadow and changing the weight accordingly (same for the arches in the perspective shot). Of course if you're going for a 2D flat style, that's not so much of a concern... For the last one, think about where the point of interest is. My eye naturally just followed it up to her left nipple, which is right in the corner. I also can't tell if the lines are supposed to flow over the body or act as a veil in front? I would decide one way or the other and either make them follow her curves more or straighten them so it's clear they're in front. Hope that helps :)

Thanks for the feedback. The lines in the last piece are actually woodgrain. I didn't create them I just kind of followed what they implied and went from there. IN that instance I was working to "free" the image from the wood" almost like a sculptor. But the point you make about light is well taken. I definitely struggle with light generally when I create. thanks again.

I like them. Be careful that your drawings don't bocome flat when you draw foreshortened hatches, like you did in the roof in #2. In nature, there is a lower probabillity that a line will be foreshortened.

These are great! My only feedback would be that in the 2 illustrations, they are pretty rigid. They guy being held by the head in particular could benefit from more exaggeration. Best of luck! These are more really good !

I like your images, especially the last one's technical skills. Focus on the story of your art more- giving the audience more clues to what's going on= The 5 w's + H. The first pic is lacking composition. There's no clear for, mid, background which makes the characters fight for attention, making it hard to focus. The 2nd one I know is more of just a scene, but what kind of hallway is this? What emotion are we supposed to feel, is this the house of a good or bad guy, are the question you should think of. The third picture is interesting because it's an optical illusion. but again story- why is he grabbing his head, who is looking at him- his significance? The 4th is nice technical skills but make sure to get a clearer picture next time. I feel it's on an angle. Overall nice work. Though were drawing pictures we artists tell a story by little sprinkles in the composition- individual elements tieing the piece together. You already do this but make sure you're picking the right elements to add and subtract. Good job.

Hi! It would be easier for the community to see where you are heading if you could provide some images from artists you like? You could try loosen up at the moment :D

Well here are some images from artist I like. I wasn't really trying to emulate them. In fact, I don't think about emulating anyone in particular when I draw, mostly I just sketch in my free moments at work, but I do love Kim Jung Gi, Jim Lee, David Finch, , and Todd McFarland (The images are from Gi, Lee, and Finch respectively, I didn't include any work of McFarland's)
