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.

Be the critique that you are. I'm nervous putting this out here, but if you don't take steps, you'll never know how to walk.

looks like basic proportion is fine, for a next step you may want to try to work on making hands or feet in the front, looks cool tho

No, it's really not.

I did this literally out of boredom, and I know I didn't cover everything. But hopefully it helps

The corrections look pretty good in anime style, but if this person is going for realism, there's still a lot wrong with that (e.g. enormous head and eyes, tiny shoulders, mouth disappearing and reappearing across the face, ears disproportionate and oddly placed in the form-drawing on the right, a nose that's actually less realistic and detailed than the original drawing you're correcting).

Really not trying to troll- within the realm of anime style this is well-done. But anime is still very stylized and unrealistic.

Actually laughed aloud... I got a report to clear out >>1527 because it's "Non Furry."

Really, whoever reported that? For real though?
