    I love the little gopher in the top one, his expression is supreme! The hands seem a little too centered to me, though, with his smile so far to the left.

    Your animal studies put me to shame. Great work!

    Great animal sketches, but your human face anatomy could use some more studying. The best way to improve is to grab a sketchbook and go somewhere with lots of people and sketch away.

    Thx for commenting on my sketchbook, your animals are looking great but your human head is lacking ^^. You should invest in a medical skull, probably one of the greatest tools in learning how to draw the head. I say medical because the "art" grade skull is anatomically incorrect and cheaper.

    Keep at it~ ^^

    Some cute animal sketches, some of it looks Disney-ish. And Bridgman is another popular one for anatomy studies. Keep sketching and keep posting!

    School is like a parasite - it sucks you dry of all energy and free time

    wow it's been a while since Ive posted anything on here - highschool saps the life out of you and my main priority at the moment is keeping my grades up (8

    It's holidays again, however, for me so Im gonna try and draw as much as I can and hopefully I will have improved at least a little bit by the time I get back to school...Im gonna need your help though guys, please critque as much and as harsh as you want. Rip my stuff to pieces! c:

    mainly sketches, there's a few (pfft like one) finished pieces in there though ~ beware I come from the land of dA so the overall finish is very...dAish haha
