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.

NEW! These were brought to my attention by MajorTom in #fchan. Courtesy of Andrew Loomis: Creative Illustration, Drawing the Head and Hands, Eye Of The Painter, Figure drawing for all it's worth, Fun with a Pencil, Successful Drawing, Drawing Dynamic Hands.

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 doesn't look nearly good enough considering how long it took. The armguards can't decide whether they're metal or some composite (and messily colored in general), and her left leg looks like it's deformed instead of simply being farther away. Spot any other migraine-inducing mistakes?

First and foremost, filesize.

Anything larger than 1000px wide or long is just extra unnecessary loading time, and no one needs supersized versions for redlining.

Aye, forgot to resize it, here's a smaller one. Anything else concerning the drawing itself? :x
