    hey here's my crit,

    your line is very sloppy and unsure. clean it up. either get it perfect and clean, or fake it! by faking i mean, just continue your line, even if it's wrong, the drawing looks better that way.
    also your shading looks rushed and doesn't describe the shapes we're looking at. it looks like you said to yourself, "this is dark, so i'll put some lines here". sometimes if you shade it's a good idea to make them all going the same direction, instead of different directions. hmm, does that make sense? it's a neatness thing but also clarity too. look at how people crosshatch. or how rembrandt did his etchings.

    your overall proportions look alright but you need to focus on anatomy more.

    that's my crit. good luck on your drawing journey's! :chug:

    Check out vilppu's drawing guides too on awn-

    http://mag.awn.com/index.php3?ltype=...lppu&offset=20

    All the articles together make up his complete guide to drawing life book (you can order than from his site if you want). But everything is there. Read from page 3 backwards to page 1- they go from first basic stuff to more advanced. Listen to vilppu, he got game!

    A few of the drawings are pretty good, the one that doesn't have all the sketchy lines is lookin good. Keep it up!

    I´d say thats not a good advice! You can never get anything right if you build on something wrong. That is very important.
