I suggest you try and steady your hand while you're drawing, it will clean everything up. Other than that, I like the concepts.

Is that serious? It kinda reminds of a comic strip. I think you should add some funny jokes in there...

I have the idea that you want to go to big to quickly. I have had this problem too. Try to start out with smaller sketches. First sketch a few heads. When you are think you get the hang of it or are just plain bored out of your skulls from drawing all the heads, switch to drawing torso’s/hands/weapons/anything.
After you have practiced on everything try drawing a entire elf. Mind proportions carefully, they can make or break a sketch.

Also take a good look at either mini’s, pictures or GW artwork. Watch how clothes and shadows fall on the body. If you can imply that into your sketches you get a bigger dimension to them. And it helps to make it look less like clothes that are defying the laws of gravity.

Oh, and don’t mind Prince of Arnheim. Until I have seen his artwork on here, his words mean nothing.

Yay, go Cult of Slaanesh! I would show my artwork if i knew how to upload them on to the computer. Don't you need a scanner or something, or use a camera?
Plus PoA, keep it to yourself.

@Khelmor: Camera+drawings=crappy results. So, you need a scanner.
@Prince of Arnheim: That was kind of rude.
@Xzanth: I don't want to be evil, but they seem more like early sketches of a final piece than a finished drawing. It seems to be made pretty hastily. It's better than my brother's trys, but you can surely improve that. ;) Just a bit of practise, and it will look fine. The poses look about right. I am not good with action poses, and all my drawings seem to be more or less in the same position.

@PoA: You're right about them (I've just seen what they look like on photobucket). I've tried but i can't think up the funny joke maybe you could help....
@Khelmor: yep you defintely need a scanner.
@Draknir Helgar: They were drawn a bit hastily, but i have taken more time up on the new one. thanks for the compliment.

There you go, it's coming along. Just keep practicing and mind the proportions.

I find the whole Picture very fine indeed. But it seems you have the same problem As me: I can never ge the armoured feet right. It always comes out wrong for me and it looks ridiculous in my drawings. Other than that, Its a very Good picture.

The legs are too short and the arms are too long.
