    I think you should use bigger brushes. Do you use a tablet or mouse?

    You seem to be getting into details before you've fully got the figure worked out. It's especially noticeable in the last one, where the general proportions and anatomy still need attention (like the length of her arm, lack of a neck, etc.), yet the face is already rendered.

    Im actually in a bit of confusion with the neck at the moment, I used to draw them insanely long and not even notice how wierd my drawings were, so at least im not doing that anymore.

    Again, the cart is firmly before the horse. What's going on with the body? Why is the head so large compared to it? Why are the horns not lined up? And yet, there's a face drawn in, right down to individual teeth (and horribly misshapen teeth, I might add).

    It's a hell of a lot easier to fix problems with proportions, value and so on before you do the fine details than after.
