hi, welcome to CA.org :-D
glad you decided to post your stuff.
Anime isn't treated very nicly around here, just to let you know =\
i've been thinking of somthinc constructive to say, rather than the usual, 'dont draw anime' bit.
I've noticed that the wrist on the first lady is wider than her forearm between the cuffs she's wearing.
I believe you need to work with a greater value range - meaning go from really dark black to bright white. It seems like all of your shapes are rendered with the same amount of light, instead of some being darker because they are behind something.
There is a lack of texture amongst your objects. They are all shaded with smooth gradients, that usually go from 0%-60% gray, so i take it if these were in color, each article of clothing would be the same color. Pencil is hard to work with, but to be effective, rendering different textures, bumpy, smooth, shiny ect need to be worked on.
I'd say the best way to do this, is just to draw life. Draw with different types of light sources, in different sized rooms and such.
I hope you can be the best you can be !

I would't say, that this is a "pure" anime, but keep in mind, that in order to draw anime-like faces and bodies you still schould know the classic rules of anatomy. What is annoying people about the anime/manga is ambundance of immature and deridative "works" made by teens, that are scattered over the DeviantART, and who are completly immune for any criticism, and who reacts, well, immature on it...

i'm glad i got some feedbak =)
jdeegz : i'm aware its kind not well seen the anime/manga style around here, thats why im not posting those, its true i got inflence form those, but i'm far from that thnk god, i noticed about the wrist, thanks, but as a sketch i didnt get to mess with that anymore
i definitly need to work more on values, but im avoiding the dark above 80%, since i was kinda addicted to the blacks for a while, and now that you mentioned i realized about the lightning > :O, thanks a lot!, theres realy a lack of texture, im working on that with tha pencil, but they wouldnt be the same colou but the same tone or value (poor english, sorry), thanls for the advice, i'll be drawing from life soon :]
lilnebo : i definitly have to post more, like every day or so, i know its no good way to study art (and thats what i want) but thats where i started and im trying to get rid of that :D
doktorno : i know that, and its not what i want =]
this is a somthin more recent, tha banner for my blog (colors can be seen there: yellow lemons (http://redpoio.blogspot.com))
and i swear that big eyes have purpose, its not a anime/manga fan thing =]

"five characters long phrase"

Good stuff so far - keep postin! :) I especially like the two characters in your second post. You do a great job shading.

I agree with DoktorNo above
Probably the best thing to do is study some anatomy
But your drawings do seem very clean and neat which is good
Just keep drawing, its the best way to get improve (obviously lol)

JFierce: thank you. :)
It simple logic:the anime faces are just deformed realistic faces. So knowing the anatomy of face etc. is crucial, because you know *what* and *how* deform it...

Keep it up, your sketches are pretty good. And I agree with the rest, studies help quite a bit. I've see it help with improvement in quite a few sketchbooks that I've thumbed through on CA
