I'll be posting my artwork here^^ I need to keep my skills sharp and I've been idle with my drawing for too long. I took a college drawing class and I don't want to forget everything I've learnedx3 Here's a sample for you. This was drawn in hatching style with pen and ink.

Thank you:D After doing this I thought I'd do pen hatches more often^~^

That's actually one of my more-preferred art styles. Pen + hatches, that is. xD
That's fairly well done. I have no idea what the book ends are supposed to look like, but it looks decent. I guess you only drew one line instead of sketching (which is what I do; I sketch a lot), which makes it look a lot cleaner, but with one downside: the lines end up less than spectacular.

It's really well done for pen though. I know how hard it can be to get things right with pen... sometimes I wonder why I'm too lazy to pick up a pencil. xD

Not bad. You did a pretty decent job with the shading in particular, though I'd recommend using a ruler, piece of paper, or some other guide when drawing long straight lines (such as those making up the base and back of the bookend) to make sure they stay straight.

You did an AMAZING job with the dragon head. :clap:

But I think the background can be improved a bit with some better lines.

I did some light framework with pencil first. And yeah, the think about pen is you can't redo anything, you have to incorporate it into your drawingx3

I agree with ya about the ruler thing. In hindsight I'm not sure why I didn't use one.

Thank you^^ The background isn't really much, just there to give a better sense of the dragon being somewhere in space. I could have made all the lines straight and parallel but I didn't want it to look mechanical, you see.

This is the first one I've done in colored pencil in a while^^ I haven't put in a background yet, though, and it didn't scan very well. ><

Hm, the shading is nice. You got the folds in the cloth and everything. However, on other portions (mostly the right shoulder pad, upper arm brace, and...lance? Dunno what to call it), I think a little more contrast would be nice.
Additionally, there's a few anatomy problems. His limbs are too short, and the closer forearm looks too thin. The hands should also be bigger; the way you've got them, I'm estimating them to be about the size of face from chin to the top of the nose. Hands as a general rule should be long enough to cover the face at least from chin to forehead.

I noticed that proportion problem. I'm not really used to human body proportions, ya know, so that advice about hand size and arm thickness is very helpful^^ As for the value on the right shoulder and other places, there is more value there but the scanner didn't pick it up. It missed a whole shadow on the Canada leaf on the horse's neck, too><
