Art critique and advice; beginner artists are welcome to post here; includes an oekaki. (NO FLAMES)

Artists, read before posting!

Before you post your art to ask for critique, please read these tutorials. They explain the basic principles of drawing and figure drawing. Most posts where these basics are missing will never get a response, as people are quite frankly sick and bored of explaining over and over that you would have to pretty much learn how to draw first, before you could improve.

These were brought to my attention by Aeresque#Artist. Courtesy of Scribd: Drawing the Human head, Drawing Dynamic Hands, Dynamic Figure Drawing
And for those of you who want it a bit easier, we also have the whole thing as one neat rar with all three books in pdf form.

If you think you know a good basic tutorial that would fit in here, feel free to contact me under Xenofur in IRC and I will add the link.

This is a part of something I've been working on. I've been obsessing over this head for way too long and something still seems a little off and I don't know if its all in my head. Am I delusional, what do you guys think?

You're not delusional.

You're just full of yourself.

Well, here in the far future I finally got this more or less finished, if anyone cares. I hate myself for not being able to color things...good.

I'd offer much better critique if you hadn't so obviously traced it.

The head has no perspective, nor does the anatomy make sense, and yet the body is absolutely flawless in perspective and anatomy. Moreover, the body is heavily shadowed whereas the head has no shadows at all. Stop tracing bodies and sticking heads on them and trying to pass them off as your own work.

I laughed so hard.

You're a dumbass.
