Portfolio: Work-in-Progress

Here's my work-in-progress life drawing portfolio. In anticipation of me not knowing what are good/bad qualities in a drawing, I've uploaded more than one would usually see in a 25~ piece portfolio. A majority of these are already on my blog, but I added them again for the sake of convenient numbering in a single post.

A few notes I've heard in the past:
-More color. This is only vaguely seen here, and will be addressed over the summer.
-Tightness/looseness. I have quite a problem with going too tight, so feel free to point out which of these fall under that category.
-Too traditional. I haven't done a lot of abstraction here, and I will also address that.

Thanks in advance to anyone who skims/critiques.

Whoa! I'm no expert on figure drawing (far from it. XD I've just started recently myself), but these look and feel with a TON of movement! At least to me, they do. :)

BRAVO! These are fantastic! Where did these come from? Nicely done man! I understand the notes you set for yourself. Just keep at it and work with those and you'll have (well, you already have) an amazing portfolio for college applications. Hey, are some of those portraits/caricatures from CSSSA? I think I recognize who they are...:D
