Female character sketches

Every now and then I want to scratch the character itch. Here are some female character sketches done on my spare time. It's good to wake the figure drawing muscles a bit. Sometimes the job doesn't allow enough time to practice the human form as much as I'd like. Female characters are notoriously challenging to get right; I thought I'd share some exercises.
Some head exercises to try out different personalities. Maybe the 4 on the left belong to the same gang of punk outlaws. The rest are a bit more random, especially bottom right, which is obviously inspired by Solid Snake :)
No real theme here other than powerful female characters. The one on the right is obviously a nod to Star Wars.
The process, starting from basic pose suggestion to finding secondary details, then cleaning up the lines in a new layer, and making some needed changes to make the pose more dynamic as well as adding basic tone with copic marker (Sketchbook Pro).
