Just uploading work I've done in the past months; I have quite lost interest in DA, but still figured I should post up some.

Drawn without lineart (aka, no lineart stage, just sketch and colour), and it was mostly an experiment with using that technique, hence the simplicity of the subject.

Don’t ask where his right lower leg went, I tried fixing with it for a good hour without any good result, so just imagine it’s folded in below the other knee or something *shrug* I also made a mistake since one of his tattoo's ended up mirrored; that's what I get for not checking references properly—

Also, I can't do male anatomy right. Sorry—

I do like the lighting and basic anatomy and I like his hair but the top of his head looks a bit too high. His eyes are nice and shiny/glassy, however, they do also look a bit blank/vague. I also think you might have went a little too overboard with the dark shading as the contours look too sharp and unreal. You could try to counter this by studying how light falls onto the skin and muscles e.g look at your own hand/arms or look at the plentiful amount of photos of the human body here on DA.

I hope this helped and I'm sue you'll improve :)
