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.

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.

I guess the head could be slightly bigger or make the neck not as thick, though that's probably just my bias. Asides from that I can't find much wrong with it. If you're unhappy with the pose see if you can find a ref online of an animal in a similar pose and work off of that. If you're still unhappy with it practise drawing him in different poses to get a handle on how the character's body works and what you want the proportions to be like.
