    This is really cool! I'm loving the facial expressions, also how you did the legs and the general movement of the image.

    I'm spotting a few proportion issues with the arms specifically. They seem to be quite long compared to the heads -- would be closer to correct if everything was in plane but with these poses i'm pretty sure some forshortening should happen. Right character's right forearm seems too curved. Left character's right forearm seems too long, and the right one looks like it should be behind the other character -- or the torso angle needs to change, or the arm should be oriented more toward the viewer and forshortened a lot. Also it looks like you're avoiding hands and feet?

    I feel like you go to extreme lengths to not draw hands.

    Also, are those lion-men? Their bodies have human anatomy. It would help a lot with your posing and really everything if you used reference.

    I'll give it to you that you seem to have imagination and want to create epic scenes. That is a good thing to use to drive you to get better. It would be worth it to do some studies with reference. You don't have to only do studies or something boring like that. Try to do like at least a 5 to 1 ratio of studies to imaginary work. I bet you'll see real improvement in the imaginative stuff.

    I feel like a huge part of progressing is learning to see. Learning to see the mistakes you make. Then you can try to do better the next time or know when something is off. This has an unfortunate side effect for some people of making them get discouraged about their own work. Try to stay positive. Its humbling to learn how much you suck (I don't mean you personally) but its the only way to get better.

    Hope that helps somehow

    The top one has decent character detail, but that bowl is lopsided, and everything lacks coherent shadows.

    The bottom one looks ok for a base sketch, but it is far too 'relief' to be finished.. The long haired person in the middle is all sorts of whack in terms of pointed boobs, too thick of a neck, confused pose, etc.
    My commentary is a gift to you.

    I do like the style. These are perfectly good as sketches, but they would have to be taken to the next level by being more specific about perspective and anatomy, where all the shadows go and nailing the heads and hands of all the figures. It's okay if you aren't able to go that far right now, but don't let style get in the way of working toward that.

    You have some really good ideas for compositions, but I think you may have more to work on in terms of actualizing them.

    I would suggest paying a little more attention to the intent of what you are drawing.

    In the first one it looks as though you where trying to portray him holding the bowl above his head, but with the position on his hands it looks as if he is tipping it back over him.

    Bringing the bowl forward, so that it looks more like it is directly over him, and placing his hands off to the side of the bowl, so the weight is being more evenly distributed, would help a lot with the way this is reading.

    This would be of use to you I think. You're not making any sense when you write.

    I mean, would it be so bad if all anyone remembers about me is that I was a lover of art, of women, and wine? Perhaps I reach too far.

    Just out of curiosity, is there a specific reason why you are choosing not to use reference images?

    Reference images can be a really big help when working. I understand you are trying to draw from your head, and there is nothing wrong with that, but I feel that using reference images would really help you a lot.

    I noticed before you got a bit defensive when references were suggested but, I feel like you may be misinterpreted what people were/are suggesting. No one here is suggesting you copy an image line for line or change your style, they are simply suggesting that maybe you could improve on what you are currently doing by looking at images of real people to see how the body looks in the given pose.

    Using reference images is not cheating or copying, in fact, most professional artist use references. It's simply a way to enhance your body of work and learn and grow.

    Asmith082010 said it better. There is nothing to be afraid of with using references. If you don't work with references, it doesn't make you a better artist, it actually means you are not working to your full potential. Artists who use references to learn are more successful.

    Tragedy & Triumph

    Here we stand,
    I know it's always been our home
    We're awakened from our prison
    A new day, it's finally here,
    We walk the streets without fear
    Our humanity has risen
    Digging out those microchips
    That kept us dormant to resist
    Singing sings of our triumph
    To maintain our current state
    We must try to innovate
    Our minds and our future

    [Bridge]
    We lived through their lies
    No we'll always keep
    A conscious mind
    And we hold our heads up high
    We will never let our spirit die

    The brave new world,
    You know it's always been a lie
    Pushed with their manipulation
    Cast away the unseen chains
    They shackle you a slave
    Take control of your existence
    Flushing out their poison ways
    Live to fight another day
    The time is now to start living
    We've taken back our dignity
    We are alive and we are free
    A revolution of our spirit

    [Bridge]
    We lived through their lies
    No we'll always keep
    A conscious mind
    And we hold our heads up high
    We will never let our spirit die

    [Chorus]
    Time is on our side
    We have prevailed
    Humanity's ultimate struggle
    Hearts and minds
    Are joined in victory
    We are triumphant end eternal
    Time is on our side
    We have prevailed
    Humanity's ultimate struggle
    Hearts and minds
    Are joined in victory
    We are triumphant end eternal

    Here we stand
    I know it's always been our home
    We can build a brand new future
    A new day, it's finally here
    We live our lives without fear
    Our humanity has risen
    The task at hand to educate
    So we don't make the same mistake
    Never take the road to serfdom
    We are aware, we are awake
    Dystopia we did escape
    Never to repeat the nightmare

    [Bridge]
    We lived through their lies
    No we'll always keep
    A conscious mind
    And we hold our heads up high
    We will never let our spirit die

    [Chorus]
    Time is on our side
    We have prevailed
    Humanity's ultimate struggle
    Hearts and minds
    Are joined in victory
    We are triumphant end eternal
    Time is on our side
    We have prevailed
    Humanity's ultimate struggle

    Are joined in victory

    This is so blown out it's hard to see what is going on. The harsh, unnatural blue paired with the grainy, pixelated quality of this image makes it really hard to provide any sort of constructive feed back. This seems to be a common occurrence in your posts, maybe you should consider investing in a better camera or even a scanner.

    If you just google "how to take pictures of art work" A bunch of really great resources come up, I would suggest checking them out. It can be a little tricky to do properly the first few times but, it is worth it to persevere the quality of your work.

    I would also suggest including a legitimate statement about the piece you are posting. Song lyrics, or whatever they are, don't really tell us much about the piece or what you are looking to improve upon. Try including a little blurb in your post to explain what you where going for, what the subject matter is/was, what you are looking to improve upon, just some general information would be nice and give the viewer a place to go as far as a reply goes.
