Hiya, I can't see your art for some reason. Can you reupload it again?

I looked at the links and searched them up. The art looks cool. Coloring looks cartoony but I don't know if you like it that way.

If you can, introduce yourself in the welcome center and tell us what level do you want your art to be at.

I'm not good at assessing people's works. I will try though. Which part do you want to assess? Coloring? The human drawin? Etc?

Well, since this is in the general discussion section, it makes sense if there isn't art. (Although Forlorn seems to have quoted the post to find the links within it, which are probably formatted incorrectly but can still be traced and found.)

However, it would be a good idea for you to start a gallery in the artist sections for your work, even if they're just sketches. It's a lot easier to help point out what steps you can take to improve if we know where you're standing now. Introducing yourself in the Welcome Center is also a good way to get to know other raiders.

In general, though, I can think of a few words of advice for all newcomers:

1. Don't worry about style. Literally do not even think about it. Don't bring that word up in your mind. Just focus on the basics of art. Once you have the basics, style will come naturally. Style is just you, on the page. You'll figure out what works best for you as you continue to practice.
2. Take your time--don't look for shortcuts. Learning to draw takes time, and for some people, it can take years to master the human body alone. Until you have a good grasp on what's all going into a work, don't shy away from guidelines--they're there to help. Learn how to break things down into shapes, and learn how these shapes interact with each other, overlap each other, connect to each other, and etc.
3. Draw from life. It may seem counter-intuitive, but just about everyone here can confirm that working on drawing things from life makes things much easier to draw for a manga. Eventually, you'll start drawing backgrounds, so you might as well go ahead and draw things around your room, your home, your street, your town, and when it comes time to put those in your art, you'll be familiar with how they work.
4. This is an important one: Don't compare your level 5 to someone else's level 50. Trying to compare skill in art undoubtedly will lead to envy, and it's not productive. Everybody learns differently, and everybody goes at a different pace. It's fine to respect and admire other artists, even to learn from them, but don't get yourself caught in a cycle of "oh, I'll never be as good as them." Just remember, someday, someone might feel that way about your art.

Oh I see, hmm you probably need to show your sketches in an art gallery forum somewhere. The first picture made me look at the size of his head and I think it's 3 1/2 heads long. That's too long for a semi realistic.. normally it's 2 1/2 heads for the male shoulder length. I can't decipher the body anatomy since it's a landscape.

I did saw your second drawing that you removed and I think it has a forshortening issue in the hands. I am happy that you tried dynamic poses despit having difficulty but this will help you learn how to fix it the next time.

Have you did some self study in anatomy? Did you draw those with references?

It depends on your preference. I upload my works in deviantart site where you need to sign up in order to upload in there. Other one that I used is imgur site. You can upload without an account but you can also make one if you want to see your past works in there.

Other sites that looks like deviantart:
Drawcrowd
Pixiv (Japanese website)
Paigeeworld

If you are using a phone like me, you can do this: click downloads then click the image address.

On how to put a image code into the forum:

 
Code: [Select]

Just change the image link to your link.

Here's the example:
