Hi there, you should really work more on anatomy and proportions. The face drawing looks very disorted. your second drawing looks find to me, but don't take my word for it, I can't really judge your second drawing too well.

I agree, you should have a look at anatomy, and construction as well.
that said, I think the linework and shapes in the 2nd post are quite good. definitely a good start

Thanks guys! You are definitely correct. I'll try to squeeze in some anatomy studies. I'm not quite sure what you mean with 'construction'.

I managed to compile the animation branch of my drawing program and made my first animation. :)
Also began to copy Loomis' mannequin.

Do you know where to find the animation branch? I saw it once but can't remember where.
Gonna tray it out.

I got it from Popolon. Remember that if you are using linux, you can't have a copy of mypaint in /usr/bin/ when you run this branch. At least that's what Popolon told me on irc.

Animation is fun but very time consuming if you try to do it properly. Probably a good exercise though, to make hundreds of drawings of the same object from different angles.

Inspired by the daily sketchgroup from a few weeks ago. No snow storm though.

I like those anatomy studies you just did, they are quite good. I am pretty jealous of your line quality. :P
Keep studying, it looks like you are doing well :D

Thanks Hermit! My lines are drawn with the 2b pencil brush from the Tanda set in Mypaint. Try it. :)

Didn't quite know what to do with the foreground.

You've got a good sense of perspective, I think it's just putting the time in with anatomy studies that will bring your work up. Your doing that so the only advice I have is carry on :D.
The creature in post 6 is adorable, to start. The nose is a good idea to practice fallow through. My crit for your animation is that you should push your arcs. Remember you have 3 dimensions to work with, even though it's 2D.
Here I drew a quick box form. The first is yours, a simple left to right. The second is a suggestion of a more dynamic arc.
Look forward to more studies, keep on trucking :D

Thanks Rhubix! I'll have to try that. :)
