    This is the critique section, what do you want critiqued? If you want to upload your drawings put them in the sketchbook section. Because really what you need is to just draw a lot more and a lot of your mistakes will sort themselves out.

    I think your line quality needs work: all lines look the same, whether they describe bone or flesh or hair, light or heavy, big or small, far or near.

    You have a pretty good sense of anatomy, as far as there being volume and mass. That is a hurdle you won't have to overcome and thats great! I highly recommend you explore new ways to create lines and contour. Why? Because the lines you are currently using take away from the skill you have in imagining the body. There are no lines in life, and by outlining the forms you are keeping them in the cartoon realm as opposed to a realism realm. I would suggest sketching extremely lightly, gently build your forms with soft developing shapes, and only emphasize the "line" in areas where the form changes direction, or where the forms connect in a V or Y. (think inner elbow of a bent arm, or bent leg folded up to the torso) and let the line only flair out from these recesses. When I'm back at the studio I'll upload a sample. Also maybe not worry about toenails and face details. At the scale you are working they just seem to draw unwanted attention. They will come easier when you lighten your drawing technique. And yes, practice practice practice! Good work!
