A few things to mention.. that left hand (character's left) needs to to connect to the body some how.
The right hand is MIA (probably not finished, right?).
The right knee cap seems to be.. inverted or missing.
The feet placement seem off.. It would seem that the character's right foot (our left) would be a bit behind the left foot.
The shadows on the head (especially character's right side) seem odd. You may want to codify where the light is coming from (and don't forget the hand cannon and reactor core give off light).
The crevices in the armor should probably give a small bit of shading/shadow.
Where the character's right foot bends from leg to food should be a bit of shading.

The light is pretty much supposed to be straight on to left slightly but pretty much straight on.

The right hand is not finished.

Your right the knee is off thanks..

I feel my shading is getting better... needs work I know but I think I am getting better....

Indeed - you are getting the hang of that shading shenanigans very nicely.

The shading is a lot better indeed. The posture is good. I think the lighting is consistent (shadows on his right, highlights on his left).

The shape looks a bit bumpy though, especially the feet, arms and hips. I take it you drew the outline first and forgot to detail some pieces of armour.

The left arm is really messy, but it's hard to draw a shortcut. When shapes are superimposed like that I suggest you to use a light colour, draw them separately and let them overlap. Then you will be able to erase the parts you don't want. Here it's obvious you try to avoid collisions : the thumb and the pectoral are too short and shoulder is too big because you want to spare room for the hand, head and arm.

The last point is something you do on all your drawings : you must be drawing lines very slowly because they are not smooth. It gives the feeling it's drawn by a child. don't be shy to do wide arm movements when you draw.

Since you obviously like to draw, I strongly suggest you to buy big sheets of paper, arrange some space on a large desk (or on the floor) and practice on big drawings. You should not draw only with your fingers, but with you wrist, elbow and shoulder as well. You'll waste a lot of paper but it's worth it, and if you want to colour your drawings on a computer you can always photograph them.

If you use a graphics tablet, try to put a sheet of paper on it when you draw. It will add friction and allow more control of your movements. If you draw with a mouse you should consider switching to vector graphics because it's next to impossible to do something decent with a mouse.

You could consider buying a used one : you will have access to bigger sizes for the same price this way. Old (good) tablets are not obsolete, but cheap tablets are usually very bad. You should also know that a graphics tablet's pointer is mapped to the screen (you can't lift the pen, move it elsewhere and continue to draw on the same spot. The cursor will have moved), so think of how big your screen is, how much space you have on your desk and if you prefer a high or a low sensitivity before you buy.

Ok I straightened out the hips

I quite like the right arm...

The left arm is a fudge I know that not enough planning went into it...:)/>

I decided to revisit the right leg and just straighten it up a bit....

I think Im done with this now the final Iron Man.

If you scroll the page so you only see the legs, it's impossible to tell whether the character is facing you or not ;)
But yeah, it's time to move on to the next project

I am a fan of Iron man and the last one looks pretty neat to me as compared to the first wip, though it has some flaws as senior members told you but is still quite impressive.
