    You're going to need to do some anatomy studies if you want to progress. Just to name one issue.

    Ha, I can only really critique one thing and know what I'm talking about, so I will...

    Your tiger's head shape is more wolflike. Tigers have a sort of ruff around their heads like you've drawn, but it's more rounded.



    My "wolf" looks kind of foxish and my drawing is kind of sucky in general, but this might help? Little things like this will help distinguish species when you're drawing animals.
    Basically, I think your tiger's head could be a bit wider/broader at the top. I think.
    Hope I helped instead of being completely incoherant and confusing. ):

    Ok could you be more detailed

    and Xainy thanks. I was at lunch and had no reference and just quick points. I should have known better as I used to draw a lot of big cats. And you were helpful and coherent. I like knowing whats wrong and not just "Hi, Anatomy, Bye".

    Big cats are possibly my favorite thing to draw. : D I have a lot of fun with them.
    But I'm glad I was helpful! I'm always worried people will think I'm full of crap when I try to critique. P:

    Posting every week. Thats a great way to improve both skill and self discipline. I tip my hat to you sir!

    Though i think you would do better to post a thread like this in the sketchbook section of these forums. Thats what they are for after all.

    Also, if its useful criticism your after, i would choose to post one piece at a time. You want to make it as easy as possible for people to leave a comment. If they have to make 4 different points about 4 pieces with quadruple the number of problems they may be more inclined to save their typing fingers.

    ...my humble and uneducated opinion.

    Exactly. One at a time please.
    Anatomy was just a general problem with all of them, especially the last two. I don't know if you're going for a more cartoony look or whatnot, but some basic principles of perspective and human proportions would help here, especially when your wizard's arms appear to be as long as his legs, and your monk has no torso.

    Ok. Thanks Mute. I will post here (and Drawingboard.org) as I finish pieces so you great people who are helping me with the criticism can critique as it progresses. I posted here because I thought Sketchbook was just for sketches and I was after criticism of fully inked images.

    Balancesheet: I see what you mean the druid almost has Gibbon Proportions as compared to the human he is supposed to be. The Monkey Monk I can see now has not much of a torso, I just overlooked it cause I was happy that I finally got around to doing backgrounds in all my work. Thank Will Terrell for the BG's cause his favorite criticism as I am drawing is "You know what this needs... A Background.

    Ok torsos and arms I need to lookout for the proportions, and the updates need to be single images as I finish them to save finger bones. OK will do, see you next image.

    How can I get this moved?

    You don't have to necessarily move this thread to the Sketchbook section. Just Start a sketchbook thread and continue posting your weekly pictures there instead of here.

    Then again if you just have to move this one you could contact an administrator and they would probably be happy to do it for you.

    I moved this to the Sketchbook section. It is ok to post multiple images in the same thread--I think the people above are just suggesting to space the posts out more in order to give people a chance to comment on one at a time.

    Sketchbooks also don't have to contain only sketches. They are more just a collection of your work over time.

    I know it was going to be a weekly thread but I have had some family and other issues get in the way of art. I will try for this week though.
