    Very nice; I really dig the style and use of color. For a crit, I think the weakest areas of the first image are the hands and feet; it looks to me like you weren't really sure what to do with them. They're better in the last image, but I think they're still lacking compared to the rest of the figure. Keep up the good work!

    What a cute style you have going! I like the warm colours and the expressions. ^_^ It may be stylized, but it's a fun one that makes for plenty of possible stories and unique characters.

    Besides the hands and feet, I'll also caution you to be careful how you draw limbs, like the legs. For instance, in the first picture, I'm not sure if she's pulling on her pantyhose or what, but her left leg looks more like a cylinder; her right looks like a cute stylized leg. You want to make sure that what you're doing is still consistently thought out in the entire drawing. Also, make sure you understand what body parts are hidden and how (e.g.: one leg's position hidden behind another), as well as the ones that we can see. That way, you'll have more control over what you're trying to do. Never hurts to draw out the full body as a simple sketch, just to see for yourself (unless you've done that but didn't show it here. In that case, ignore my last advice.)

    Good stuff!!

    I'm always psyched to see more cartooning on CA! You've already gotten some advice along the lines I would of suggested so I'll just say your stuff is super cute and stick with that.
    My favorite thing so far is the rosy elbow and knee in the first post. It's a great little touch that I think deserves to be pointed out.
    Happy sketching! post more soon!

    Hey, thanks for stopping by.

    Good start for your sb. The colors are vibrant and nice. Remember to work out the basics of anatomy too along with the figure drawing. I know it's an awful ca.org cliché to suggest Loomis and Bridgman, but I'm doing that anyways. I think you should check out Vilppu too

    I love vilppu's way of teaching.. and loomis is my fav teacher I dunno bout bridgman though cause it gets kinda hard to follow him but I definitely practice sketching from his book and am getting the hang of basic landmarks in a human body too and how the figure works... thank you so much for your input...

    Have you ever been asked to do a children's story or playboy cartoons?, your style and sense of color is killer man, if i can critique I'd say start making stories with that style
