    Well, since the first pic is very stylized I'm not sure exactly what to crit.

    On the second:

    It looks pretty good, but one thing to keep in mind is that you might want to include neck and shoulders when drawing heads. Keeps them from floating in space. Since the picture is stylized I can't really comment on proportion but the ears look maybe a little off-kilter and could probably be defined better.

    Something you probably want to work on is line quality. Your strokes look very tentative. Try to work up to smooth, confident strokes. The way the hair is drawn makes it look very disheveled, particularly with the simplified face.

    Two more things: The eyebrow piercing could be better defined, to make it look more like a 3D object. And you might want to try adding a light source, so you can add some simple shading.

    Both of these pictures have an interesting look to them and I look forward to seeing more stuff from you. Good Luck.

    The second one is nice, but the first is a little weird. Her face looks flat but with weird raised parts almost. like its skin stretched over a weird surface with raised circles and such.

    Yes, I also think that you need to work on your strokes. Right now they look a little "hairy" because of the way you redraw the lines on top of each other.
    I like the snail, it's cute, but I don't really understand the picture as a whole.
    Also, I think you would benefit from studying eyes and thinking about how to do the eyelashes/makeup to make them look attractive.

    keep it up!
