    I know the number two in the last one doesn't really look like a number two... it's sad... I'm using these in my Instagram page as a portfolio... Any advices? I'll dish out even the most offensive soul-crushing kind of criticism, LOL.

    Certainly an interesting style. A few things though - the lack of consistent lighting in each picture. Shadows don't seem to be placed coherently.. some in the front.. some below.. some on top..

    Sonic's nose looks like a free floating eyebrow or something. You may want to thicken up those lines connecting it.

    Tails, bottom one, - I have no idea what's up with that face and snout.

    The middle one suffers from not sticking in the lines.. and honestly I don't get the ground sonic is standing on and how it is blowing up.

    All three could deal with sharper, more defined, backgrounds too.
    My commentary is a gift to you.

    Your understanding of color vastly overshadows your linework.

    To be honest, I'm looking at Sonic and Tails here, and thinking...

    Three Pieces of Work Involving Sonic...

    Very gaunt, even skeletal and spiky.

    But I don't hate the style. It also reminds me a wee bit of Mike McMahon's art:

    Not wanting to tear you away from your style, but I wonder if a bit more construction is in order.

    Also, agreed with Modi: I have no idea what's going on in the backgrounds, where they're set, what the perspective is, etc.
    ...which is only my opinion.
