Opinions on my drawings?

Hey, I am new to this forum but am curious to get some feedback on some of my drawings/sketches. I do this quite casually although some of these took many hours. I would very much love to make a living revolving around artwork but cant seem to get the focus to take it as seriously as I would like to. Thanks ! -Mike

You are going to have to focus and take it more seriously if you plan on making a living on your art.

Thanks a lot ! are you asking if I know more about the quote? If so, it is a random little drawing + quote a girlfriend of mine drew years ago that has been floating around my sketchbook. I'm not too sure where the quote is from exactly
"It takes a long time, but god dies too. but not before he'll stick to you."
-or if your asking if I know about drawing more styles (such as comics) then no I do not i feel like i don't really fit into any specific style, and possibly never will.



-and yes Just, you are most definately right, I'm 23 now and have definitely not been putting enough effort to make a living out of it at the moment, but aslong as I can atleast continue with it and keep trying to develop more skills il be happy ! I constantly wonder if I should have tried to persue this more years ago instead of enrolling to become a welder

Yes all artists regret not developing our talent more. A couple of things you can work on are your shading and values. Use the side of the pencil lead more and a some sort of blending utensils to shade. Use a few darker leads along with your number 2b.
