Hey! Your stuff isn't bad at all. You have some anatomy to work on for sure, but who doesn't nowadays? Even I struggle. It's good that you come here for help. Too many artists whine and complain because of crits, because not all of them are sugarcoated. Lol.
I'd really like to see you try drawing people in different angles, rather than just frontal view, side view...Try from above, from below, 3/4th view, etc...Just attempt as many angles as you can picture.
To practice this, and gesture (Very helpful for poses and to keep your drawings loose), might I suggest this site? http://posemaniacs.com/?pagename=thirtysecond
I hope this helps. Keep on drawing! And welcome to CA!
"Looking for critiques! Any help is appreciated."
Thank you so much Sky. I've been trying to get into realistic drawing as of late. Your tips are much appreciated.
Start drawing from life, but draw what you see, which you're not doing yet. I'll bet you two icecubes and a paperclip that when you drew that desk, everything was in perspective, and every single object was not facing directly at you. This is called thinking/drawing in symbols, where (for instance) you see an eye on the person you are looking at, but when you draw them the eye you draw is not the eye you see, but rather a shape you happen to represent an eye with...it is a hard habit to break out of, but there are a lot of exercises that can you help you do it. I suggest breaking away from the people (unless you are drawing a real person) and drawing smaller stuff you can put in front of you for a while.

Hey bro glad to see you finally made the sketchbook. I look forward to seeing more of your stuff EVERYDAY! ( haha, I don't even update my SB everyday ) I love it when you make progress and I love looking at your stuff. Pretty much everything i was going to say was covered in those two posts so I'll just say keep it up and study anatomy.

This is just another anatomy concept. I attempted drawing an anatomical structure from 3/4 view and a concept of a skull. Critique is welcome as always. Thank guys.

hey, it's been a bit since i posted. I've been a little caught up in other stuff, . Well here's a new piece i did. A human head at side view. It's not much so any critique would be appreciated, as always. Thanks
Hey CA! I have more pieces for all to see and critique. In these posts, I did a few concepts of my future video game characters and a little more study on the human skull. The last picture was supposed to be a female...it didn't turn out so well so any tips on how to draw a feminine face would be much appreciated. Thanks guys!
I can only tell you to have a little bit more fun with your work. Moving out of your comfort zone into something unfamiliar. You'd find that you learn a lot more that way. Participate in the DSGs! Your characters thus far look good but...theres a bit of repetition in it. I don't know if Mr. Phoenix has told you that you can squash and stretch heads to make them look a little different.
I also can't stress the studying of references. I'd really love seeing some of that in your SB
