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.

So I keep poking at it and lord help me, it's not getting better. The angle of the right shoulder is plausible (albeit painful, which is the point, derp), but I really think I've fucked up the anatomy of the shoulder joint.

Also, help with her face would be greatly appreciated. She's supposed to look like she's crying and in pain, but instead she just looks like a stale blowup doll. -_-

At the risk of being further ignored/told to STFU, I present another one. This one I'm specifically having problems with the male face - it's supposed to be a Goblin from WoW ( http://www.blogcdn.com/www.wow.com/media/2010/08/goblinoverlooking.jpg ).

Please note that this are not final, but just refined sketches. I need to get these bits right before I actually go forward with the final inking, details and coloring.
