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.

this is a hard pose for me because of the foreshortening involved as well as the angle. I seem to be having trouble with the proportions mainly on the female...can anyone give me a hand with this?

Why do you finish these up within such a short time of posting them here? It seems kind of useless.

The face on the chick is kind of bugging me, particularly the bump on the far side of her face. It looks like an absurdly bulging brow, which has very little place on a female character.

Them shoulders are pretty huge too.

Something I'm worried about is how the junk is the only portion you put much effort into. The breasts and the genitals are all polished up fairly well, but then everything else is just thrown on as an afterthought. I get the idea that you may find it arousing or you really don't care enough to work on anything else, but it looks really, really shoddy. Furries ain't gonna care, but artists will.
Try not to fall into the trap of only finishing what you want to finish as fap fodder and then losing interest in the rest of the image. In any case that you do it, it's kind of pointless to post for critique.

Brush up on the anatomy of the buttocks down to the toes. The torsos are acceptable, but the butt and thigh on the girl look really strange.

I dunno, I don't have much else for this, I'm actually pretty uncomfortable with it.

oh holy shit it's a lady

I glanced over it quickly and it looked like a dude getting plowed

ladies should not be mannish unless you are deliberately going for that
