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.

Hello, I started my "adventure" with tablet few weeks ago and this is my latest work.
I drew it in paint, got photoshop but I cant get used to it. And I have some nasty habits from using pencils and only sketching.
Could I ask you to critique and maybe some advices how to make my works more visable and clear? Even as an author I have problems to see details sometimes.

Don't know about photoshop, but sai is an incredibly easy and intuitive tool for sketching and linearting. Check it out and draw something with pressure sensitivity, you'll see the difference.
Also, stop with the chicken scratching, man. I think you know very well yourself that's the main reason your sketches don't look as clear as they could. You'll have to get used to drawing with longer and smoother lines eventually. Have more confidence in your drawing!

OP here, thanks about sai annon, pretty nice program. I gave it a try and made this art "recently", unfortunetly I dont have time to finish (alot of welding courses in this and next month...) , and its not furry related - still its made by same person and hopefully shows something more.
