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.

Raise the clothes at the sleeves; make sure that one side of the chin mirrors the other; round the hands(disclaimer that I only know what it should start to resemble*no ref); define the characters contours from shapes that angle away from the viewer like the abs; same with the crotch area, don't forget the leg has a but, so that thigh gap ,unfortunately does not receive negative space; The anterior muscles of the leg should be round, or this will make it harder to see the angle of the leg; the jeans pocket on their right side should not really show up; shorten their left eye, it doesn't seem to match the length of the one on their right.
That's as best I can suggest. This is just what I would do though. Good luck!
