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.

fchan made me want to try and I did...more or less sucessfully >>

I'm not extremely experienced when it comes to human anatomy (read up on the basics of course, took a few figure drawing classes and practiced in private, but the majority of my drawing time is taken up by animals) so I'm afraid the poses look a bit stiff and unnatural, what can I do to change that? /Things I should pay more attention to in the future?
->All critique on the anatomy/proportions is welcome, though I'd rather not have you comment on the subject (I don't care if you don't like lions/wolves/gays) and/or the shading (which is half-arsed and messy, being awake at 2am does that to me.)
Also: No flames! Don't tell me it sucks and run off, either give me tips on how to improve or don't comment at all, thank you.

Great job but the only thing that really bugs me is the thumb. It's too long and it makes the hand look unnatural and even uncomfortable. The right arm on the wolf also looks kinda off, the perspective just looks weird to me, I'd suggest finding a reference or even taking a picture of your own arm in the same position to help out

Thank you for taking the time to write something -even though it's one year too late to make a difference xD
Haha, back then I thought this was pretty good, now I look at it and think 'oh dear god, this monstrosity needs so be destroyed'.
