the first ones (except the pencil ones) are clearly traced from a photo: the lines are unsure, but they follow a line to precisely to be free-hand. i think you should work on proportions and poses before doing anything serious.

It certainly sets yourself away from the Typical, Somehow it seems like everything in the art world has to be taken with all out seriousness or maybe in some ways that actually puzzles the exact meaning about it.
It's not like you need to learn imagination from other people since that alone come natural

Dude, your anatomy is way, way off, though the ideas are pretty damn good. Going to dish out my usual advice, which is to draw from life - draw people you see, their faces, their hand, their proportions, and get those skills under control. Basically the best any artist can do - you've already got style, but the arms you draw look all like they've been taped to their respective bodies.

Watching horror movies are we? If you want some criticism on your pic here, I would be more than happy to give you one. In my opinion, it's too sketchy (even for a sketch) to make any sense out of it. Well I can see a scythe, but I'm not at all sure what I see here. Try using more solid, and darker lines. Have you tried practicing in pen and paper? I recommend that you try it. It does a lot of wonders.

well, i only draw with pen and paper when i'm at work. When im bored i dive into my sketchbook :P but this sketch looks better when not uploaded. easier to see the lines ^^ But ive noticed that i can draw better stuff when i sketch out on paper first. So i'm gonna start doing that more.

I really like the dead girl drawing,and by the way if you don't already, GIMP 2.0 helps a lot for smoothing out drawings and such,and yes it's free. :P

I think I preferred your other drawings like your beard guy with a snake and dragon then the direction you are heading with the dead girl. It's an interesting start using opacity controlled brushes but maybe giving the girl full color first would be best. The sketchy lines are way out of place, I suggest either draw over the lines until it looks smoother and erasing off unnecessary sketchy lines or put up another layer and trace over it. I may also suggest you putting up a source of light because you hit some but miss alot of areas of clothing, skin, and parts that required shade.

Well, its definitley apparent that you are getting the basics down. Along with this and the imagination piece you've done, its apparent that you have the capacity to become a competent artist and beyond.

One thing you need to do is to learn how shadow work. Most of the shadows in your work are there, but they are bland and careless, much like the shadows in all the crap in my gallery at the moment.

The best way you can learn about shadow is to practice with pencil and paper prior to all this digital stuff. Go put an apple on a well lit table and draw it, shading it as you see it. If you could post that at some point, I'll be able to explain stuff a lot better.

Draw draw draw draw draw wif da pencil, and study anatomy as well!

Because the mind isn't limited by skill or practice.
All I can do is encourage you to keep up with what you're doing. Just give it time.
