    I'm actually surprised by your pictures - they got an aesthetic value that most beginners don't have. In the beginning it's better if you try to find knowledge on your own and draw ALOT.

    However, good luck and I'll look forward to seeing more!

    Neato. Just watch out for getting trapped in using representational symbols.

    I agree. Most new artists think everything they draw has to mean something. Everything you draw doesn't have to be amazing. Sometimes you improve rapidly by drawing the same meaningless crap over and over and over. Especially when it comes to anatamy. Then apply those skills to symbolic artwork.

    If you want to learn a lot of tricks and tips, try reading some of those "how to draw" books. They seem lame, but if you skip past the obvious parts you'll learn a lot! You'd be suprised what your local library has to offer (for free).

    Hello there, I really like the look of the first two pictures, the hands especially (for the first one). I was wondering, in the second pic, why does the girl (?) have a white border around her? It looks odd for the unity of the piece.
    The third and fourth pic show a lack of knowledge in anatomy, so I suggest picking up some books one the subject. Also, you can use references (photos for example).
    Fifth one is nice but again, look up references for birds, the image will only have more impact if you make it more realistic.
    Last one has also the anatomy problem for the guy on the right, and the picture looks trapped by the borders of the paper, maybe use bigger formats to leave some space for the picture to "breathe"

    just my 2 cents

    Don't stop drawing!
