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.

Soooo first time I've ever posted anything on here. I was kinda hoping for a bit of critique on this? I just bought a tablet and this is like my second drawing I've done on it. Its not finished but I figured I would get a bit of help, tell me what you think!

The legs seem a little off after the knee, and they look a little funny the way the align with the butt. Try making the arch of the back more defined so the butt sticks up a little. The breasts wouldn't be round wither, if they're being pressed against a flat surface. The collarbone seems a little too defines and the arm needs to look less two dementional, try making it seem as if it were bending more towards the viewer.

This isn't bad for a second try at a tablet. It takes awhile to get used to it. I'd study some anatomy books a little, but it takes practice. Keep at it, I do see potential here.

>>803 Try to relax the arms as well, they look too stiff at the shoulders.

NO. Do NOT relax the arms. There is potential for a tensioned look, so my gut feeling is that there are plans for another character behind 'her'. 'She' is in the typical "Ohhhh" and thus the interwebz demands a virgin sacrifice! lol
Joking aside, this is are very good sketch for only being your second try on tablet! ...had mine for years and...
Anywho, I disagree. My gut tells me that there's something else going on in the picture besides a static pose.
Nice job! Keep it up!
