    hi and welcome to CA

    good start, when big your drawing are better. You got nice confident lines.

    if it's not already done, get loomis's books. They are free on the internet.

    some suggestions: get attention to your proportions:
    your heads are a little big,
    the first girl has short legs
    try to draw with geometric constructions (cylinders for arms and legs) the method is in the loomis books

    and the most important

    The main thing I see a little of a problem with is proportions. Besides that, you're style is what i'd call "Refreshing". It just has that refreshing atmosphere- its nice to see!

    Great job so far, only problem i see is the fingers in the second drawing are kind of misshapen, fix that and you'll really have something going on.

    Hello...

    Nice start Gabyness...there have already been some good comments on what you are doing. If you are drawing in your sketchbook don't worry about a finished look. Also try drawing a body made up of shapes. Think of the underlying form like the skeleton and muscles. Draw family, friends, pets, people around the environment you live in. Pick up some figure drawing books or use the Internet. Anyways draw and draw. We are always learning.
    Here is a good link for some hints and ideas...

    Yo, thanks for the comment.
    Studies are looking great so far, especially with those last ones, working in shadows and values. I'm really not in the position to be giving advice, but I think it'd be nice to see some anatomy studies atop the poses. I find it helps to know what is going on underneath as well as the overall.

    Keep up the good work!

    I like this 2 color technique. Obviously these are better than previous ones.
