    YOu should make the arms as small or as large as you want. It depends on the character you're portraying. Realistically, female arms are larger than what lots of artists draw. I love an ebony pencil for shading. You can go jet black on it. It's like charcoal on a pencil.

    Thats definitely not a bad start. The apple looks a bit flat and could use more different shades. And try not to use pure red for the apple, mix it with some other colors. Did you paint the wooden table? It looks good...

    Nice paintings. Like the second one better than the first tho, you got a better sense of form and more realistic colors in that one. In the first on the apple looks real flat, the light side just isn't rendered at all, and the contrasting super saturated hue really make it stand out. Painting is super hard tho I know. You should see my first attempt at a still life in oils, you'll piss your pants laughing...

    You need to blend the edges of the shadows and add in some highlight. DOn't buy canvas though. Just use primed masonite. Much cheaper and more convinient. You won't have to stretch any canvases. Pre-stretched canvases are expensive as hell.

    SOme hue changes in the fruit will help but it's hard to do it w/o changing the value with traditional media. In photoshop you can sample the original color and just slide the Hue slider.

    Very nice, oki! Form and proportion looks good, tho that horizontal thigh looks a bit concave.

    Now practice wrapping your strokes around the forms. Since you're a guy, that should be easy.

    Beautiful job.

    hey oki try to make some more cleaner and bolder lines, it will make the difference in your work. Try not to rush it.

    Its okay to sketch them in at first, like taking a 2h or 4h pencil and sketching in things till your happy with them. Then go little harder and build up some values.

    Then take a No.2 Pencil (or if u have something nicer) and pick out areas for darker lines and deeper values.. Since you have everything there already sketched it will be easy for you to feel where to make those percise single stroked lines.

    I hope this helps, ask me any questions if u need any.

    That female study is very nice. Nothing else to crit that was already mentioned. Keep up the good work, im seeing improvement.

    Try using the side of your pencil to shade faster too. Mass your shadows and learn to see in only 3 values: dark, mid, and light. Try squinting for this. it'll help you see the form better and thus allowing you to render it more precise.
