Okay, so I've been learning art these past couple of months and I'm interested a lot in drawing people. I've been learning basic perspective, figure drawing, stuff like that. I wanted to practice a lot more before I came here, because I thought CA was for professionals, but a friend of mine twisted my arm into posting stuff for critique.
This is really horrible, cliche DeviantArt stuff, and it's also on (gulp) lined paper. I'm on vacation and I was forced to do this before I returned home or went to an art store.
So basically, I'm asking you to take a look at the following drawings, and not tell me THAT I need improvement, but maybe point me in the right direction, recommend some books or techniques, things like that. If this is the wrong website or board for this kind of things, just let me know and I'll delete it. Thanks!
