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.

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 is one of my first anthro picture's I've done that I have actually liked, could someone critique and/or red line it? I would love to learn my strengths and weaknesses. Thanks ^^

The hands should be larger,especially the males. His arm also seems short. You can't really tell her neck from her chest. His pants also look furry.
Look at and reference from human anatomy guides,and study people which includes yourself and then apply it to anthro characters.

so cute! i like it so far, well, the rest has been said, i'll add something about the shoulders... agh i dunno how to explain it without image tutorials, but you need to draw it like more looking down... arms looks stiff too! but it can be easily resolved by using curvy lines
action lines, don't be afraid on using them, it always helps!!
of course study anything about constructing anatomy first to know how to apply action lines later
remember folds are important too, always take references! don't be afraid

about the shading... contrast, use alot of colors to make it more fun, but also make a balance between lights n' stuff, something long to study too, but slowly you'll be getting it!
