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.

Hey again.

This is a commission piece I'm doing for a friend of mine, and my deadline is two days from now. The problem is I've never really had much experience with the male form, and would like a little advice as to how it's turning out. Muscle placement and such.

I've gotten some good help here before, and since I would like this commission to be worth the money I'm getting for it, any help you guys have got to give would help. I'm aware that my line quality at the moment is utter shit (I only started doodling this about ten minuets ago), so I know I need to work on that. The work won't be going in color anytime soon, so all I need to know is whats working and whats not before I go much further.

Again, I thank you guys for your help.
