Whew. So A-Tom is a work in progress?

A bit on the second pic, the girl on the left's waist looks paper thin and flat. Draw it round to make it more 3D -ish.
If you get my meaning.

No one is perfect . . . that's why there's erasers and extra paper.

OH SORRY!!
Kay, the little BOY on the left...
Hair threw me off, and sketchiness, even if it was a sketch, hard to say...

It will. Just you wait - keep practicing, then look back a few months from this point and see how far you've come. Then wait a year or so, and do it again. It's amazing to see.  :biggrin:

Some nice sketches here, you certainly have your own style!

Don't worry, art progress is slow. I know the feeling all too well, i too have been struggling so much lately with trying to improve. Everything i draw just turns out horribly. haha! Keep drawing though, don't let your thoughts defeat your will!

My, my. A fantastic drawing. The face of the fair lady brings it to a high level.
Dare I critique, however, or doth I leave it be?
I shalt offer thee but one tip.

For females (unless it's a trap!): The hands are smaller than the face, ever so slightly (from top of the forehead to the bottom of the chin). In this case, the head is quite small in proportion to the rest of the body, the hands especially. While the face is beautifully rendered, it's small size simply makes the rest of the piece seem a little "off", and while it is good, that slight improvement of enlarging it can bring it beyond what it is already is, and it is good.

I enjoy your style, and your rendering of those curls is fantastic. Keep up the good work!  :biggrin:

Awww, you can critique me all you want. <3 I really appreciate it.

Anyways, don't be fooled by this cutesy look of this character...she's the evil one.

So, i'm doing a critique of this, a proper big critique. However, it would help me immensely if you could upload an image with your construction of the image. That's where the biggest problem lies in my opinion.

See, the proportions of the face and body are off i think. The face outline angle does not match the face details, and the face details are squished into the face, really making it look odd. If i could see the construction lines, it would confirm my suspicions.

The body also seems to be off. The ribcage area seems to e there, but it seems to be positioned stragely with the pelvis. I can't confirm if this suspicion is right though.
