I am more than willing to receive a harsh critique, in fact, I Prefer it! You don't have to compliment when putting forward what you think/observe to be incorrect. That's one of my favorite things about my instructor, Ed Binkley; He will look at one of my drawings and critique them to the point of destruction, and that is what makes an artist grow.
I can promise the same in return, though my eyes are not quite as trained, it is always good to receive a fresh eye.
I'll be posting a lot of my practice drawings, concepts, and other things too. I would adore some critique and suggestions
Thank you so much for looking!
This first post involves some new figure drawings.

30 min studies for my figure-drawing class
Unfortunately, the images are extremely stylized and that really takes away from the pictures themselves. Hopefully in the future I can change that by NOT DRAWING THE FINAL LINE MORE THAN ONCE. A great rule of thumb to create clean AND descriptive linear work.

This is Jen, she's a fantastic model and usually does extremely playful and dynamic poses

Ophila my OC - she's part of the Shadow Realm, something that I'll probably elaborate more on the more I post in here
A few of my friends wanted them, so I indulged them
This mostly consists of random doodles
Most of these are in ball point pen

oh wow, i love your lines and the life drawings are so fun to look at...I totally think the stylization is really nice though. i don't know what to critique...i need lots of critiques myself. ^_^
Your sketchbook is nice, keep it going!
#1 First pic: Ogre with girl.
I really like the pose of both characters, espcially the girl. But the arm in front looks a bit weird. Maybe the position of the shoulder and elbow are not correct? But overall it's a really nice sketch
#2 First pic: Man sitting
Something is wrong with his pelvis. To me it looks too small.
#3 First pic: Girl sitting
Maybe you exagerated too much the curvy lines in the back. Maybe not ...
#6 Third pic: Girl standing
The render of the cloth is f**king awesome great job!
Take note that you are way better than me so I might be completely wrong with my critiques. Hope it will still help you ...
A semi Quick line sketch i did
Also, a self portrait! My friend hates it because he thinks it's hideous haha.
My characters Lyn and Leyander being dramatic as well as Leyander's desired outfit
Part of a series I'm working on
Small update to show I'm alive :]
I dig your self portrait, and like your illustrations...I think you could benefit from doing more life drawing using a directional light source to get stronger contrasts of light and shadow. This will help you get mass and volume especially as you shade from the shadow into the dark light.
Then I inked him!
@ Zarahn Southon - I really like your suggestions and I think I shall do a few still lives with intense lighting :] Thank you!
Some texture spheres for practice and class
