Hmm, all these are A1 so there's a big detail loss, so sadly that means all you have to go on is tone, which is by far my worst bit. I tried harder on it here though.

usually I am a quality of line whore

Maybe someone should learn you how to spell 'teach' first huh.

I know it's a typo, I'm just joking with ya.

That looks great though. Looks just like Mr Romney. And I'm sure it'll look even better when it's finished.
(If you're into caricatures you should definitely check out Jason Seiler if you don't know him already.)

This is really great for your first digital painting, and I love the contrast of that kind of realism in the face and flatness of his clothes.
I think the only thing I would add is some shading in the teeth. How it is now kind of works because of the way his clothes are, but since it's a part of his face, it just strikes me as something that would be shaded with the rest of it.

SO ANYHOW, I love your thread, and I bet your sketchbook is really fun to flip through in real life.

Thankyou kindly. I think you're really right, I did some sloppy joppies on the teeth there (and the hairline/hair). I'll tidy it up later, after I hopefully get to grips with the whole digital painting thing. I'm not so great tonally; I usually draw all my plains with line because I'm lazy.

Speaking of which, here's some of my face. It's part of my News project; I'm putting on my News-Specs to see things from an end-of-the-world perspective.

The four eyes of the apocalypse. Pretty sure this picture is going to look absolutely rank what with all the shrinking and quality reduction lol.

Thanks folks!

I didn't time this but it was probably 5-10 minutes tops, but I wanted some seriously critical feedback on these unreferenced studies (is it a study with no reference?) I had a go at whacking out this out but I wander if anyone can point out things I need to work on that I'm not seeing. Please and thankyou, onwards and upwards.

as I post this I realise my my my what a low down arse

Well for 5-10 minutes it's pretty good.
I know I'm guilty doing it myself all the time but maybe stay away from shading until you're absolutely certain about the sketch. It's a lot harder trying to make adjustments with a paintbrush than with a pencil (figuratively speaking of course, it's obviously drawn digitally).
For one there seems to be some kind of odd tense muscle between the neck and the right shoulder which doesn't look right in combination with the loosely hanging right-arm. It looks as if he's stuck in between two different poses at the same time.
Same thing with the feet and hips: The heel of the right foot seems to be off the ground which would cause the hip skew counterclockwise, yet it the hip's angle seems to be going the other way.

A neat little trick to correct these kind of mistakes is to cover up the parts of your drawing that don't look right with your hand and trying to figure out what's going on behind the hand. It's a trick similar to flipping the canvas horizontally (something you can only do digitally). But the best way to avoid them is to draw a stick figure-skeletons until you're more comfortable thinking out poses (I'm definitely not even close to that stage myself).

Thankyou very much for that man, I've been trying out that cover-up technique and it does work. I'll have some new figures up soon I hopes!

Here's a drawing of the inside of my head, 0.2mm ink fineliner straight to paper. I've given up sketching in pencil first, unless it's important.
