I like the zombie, and venom is coming along nicely. If you can't afford photoshop, why not use actual paints, or markers, I think your drawing style would suit markers quite well.
Also anatomy studies are a must, if not for doing actual realistic drawings, they will just teach you how to draw believable muscles/hands/feet on your cartoons

Keep those sketches comin! The Venom looks like its going well and that zombie has a funny look, very humorous.
If you need an art program thats free, versatile and can go head to head with photoshop, download The Gimp. http://www.gimp.org/downloads/ <---- If you download it, its gonna come with 2 different files in a zip archive. Unzip it using something like winzip or winrar, install the GTK first and then run the Gimp installer. You can find additional brushes, plug-ins etc on the website and just searching the net. Also, the help files are available for download on the Gimp website aswell.

There are free art programmes like ArtRage and Serif DrawPlus4 (vector) that you could use. As you don’t have a tablet vector might help as you can reshape objects after drawing them. Also try drawing some objects from life to help with your observational skills.

It looks like you're focusing on stylizing something you don't quit understand yet (the human form/whatever else). Study your brains out before you start drawing cartoony; you'll notice, even after a few months, how much easier cartooning will become, if that's your preference. Cool stuff, though.

Great Job Sky man. How are we ever going to animate this char ehh???
He'll be the hardest. i'm thinking paper like animation where each part of his body is in great detail but his movement is POOR.
our Chars are going to be ez eh? btw. we still need to design one more char.

Those hands and bananas from a few posts up appear to be drawn from life and are probably the strongest pieces you've got so far. Keep going!
If you can't find full body subjects in real life, it won't hurt to visit posemaniacs.com or even just google images. Good luck!
